Curse of Lycanthropy

Lycanthropy can be spread like a disease. Sometimes a lycanthrope begins life as a normal humanoid or giant who subsequently contracts lycanthropy after being wounded by a lycanthrope. Such a creature is called an afflicted lycanthrope. Other lycanthropes are born as lycanthropes, and are known as natural lycanthropes.

A lycanthrope can either resist its curse or embrace it. By resisting the curse, a lycanthrope retains its normal alignment and personality while in humanoid form. It lives its life as it always has, burying deep the bestial urges raging inside it. However, when the full moon rises, the curse becomes too strong to resist, transforming the individual into its beast form-or into a horrible hybrid form that combines animal and humanoid traits. When the moon wanes, the beast within can be controlled once again. Especially if the cursed creature is unaware of its condition, it might not remember the events of its transformation, though those memories often haunt a lycanthrope as bloody dreams.

Some individuals see little point in fighting the curse and accept what they are. With time and experience, they learn to master their shapechanging ability and can assume beast form or hybrid form at will. Most lycanthropes that embrace their bestial natures succumb to bloodlust, becoming evil, opportunistic creatures that prey on the weak.

During this time the DM has Control over what your character does, however every hour you may reroll your saving throw to take back control. Once you make the correct saving throw you retain control for the rest of the night.

Tough Hide- While you are not wearing any Armour or shields your AC becomes 10+ Strength Modifier+ Proficiency Bonus (All Forms)

Lycanthropy as an Affliction:

Curse of Lycanthropy- Any humanoid or giant hit by a werewolf’s bite attack in Wolf or Hybrid form must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution save or contract lycanthropy.

The Character is subject to involuntary transformation under the full moon and whenever damaged in combat. He or she feels an overwhelming rage building up and must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom save to resist changing into Wolf form. Any player character not yet aware of his or her lycanthropic condition temporarily becomes an NPC during an involuntary change, and acts according to the Chaotic Evil Alignment. The player may reroll a failed save once every hour or at the end of each round if in combat. After making a number of saves equal to your character level + 2 you are considered to be in control of your condition and are no longer susceptible to involuntary transformations except for the Full Moon Rage.

Curing Lycanthropy- You can cure lycanthropy by way of a remove disease or heal spell cast by a cleric within three days of contracting lycanthropy. The only other way to remove the affliction is to cast remove curse on the character during the full moon. Only afflicted lycanthropes can be cured of lycanthropy.
