Physical Description[edit]

The Karvaskjar are large-sized humanoid creatures with the ability to transform to their liking in the following creatures: -Bear (which can be of various species and colors). -Crow. -Etruscan shrew. They are extremely strong, wise and charismatic. However, they are constrained in their movements due to their mass and size.


Created by a superior entity from black magic and human and animal sacrifices, they are aware that they are more powerful than normal creatures and therefore never back out of combat and immediately respond to provocation. The Karvaskjar, not being very agile, struggle with small or fast creatures, but they have a particular predisposition to fight creatures bigger than them. They have a very particular blood in fact, in addition to having a color that varies from black to blue, they are immune to poisons, bleeding and spells of type Fire and Electricity. Instead, they are vulnerable to cold and ice magic. They are competent in the use of any weapon, except for firearms.

Battle Cry[edit]

The Karvaskjar has a very deep voice and launches a battle cry before every fight in which, if the opponent is lower or lower level, he must take a will test to avoid escaping in terror. Furthermore the cry works as an encouragement to the comrades, in fact they get a +3 to hit and on initiative.
