Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: +5 ASI is a yikes (negative ASIs do not balance, since any affected scores will just be used as a dump stat), increased base movement speed on top of every other feature is far too powerful. The Beast lasts indefinitely and grants unlimited uses of the bite attack, and thus infinite hit points.

Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Most lore sections are lacking, especially alignment. Both History and Society could probably be combined into the same section. If their society is a "mystery", add an Attitudes and Beliefs section. Also, can't both lycanthropy and vampirism be applied to any other existing race (and already exist in 5e on MM pg.207 and 295)?
