Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: All the powers need rewriting. For example, "bone blast" should be a, well, blast (rather than "5 attacks"), descriptions need to be moved out of the "effect" line (which is for effects that occur regardless of a hit or miss)

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

The Wildmen roam the plains south of the Grey Downs and along the winter river. Their kind is known far and wide for their use of magic and rituals having to do with blood, bones, and reanimating the dead. While the tactics of Wildmen seem to vary from class to class, each member of their clans is just as ruthless as the next.

Bloodcursed Wildman Chieftan[edit]

As you walk into the chamber, an important looking wildman sits on the ground in a meditative pose. A councilman stands beside him offering words of advice as he tells of your party's advancement through the temple. The man looks at you, his eyes seemingly filled with blood, he pushes the councilman aside and slowly stands. This appears to be the chief, although he looks rather weak and frail to be a leader of the Wildmen. He picks up a walking stick and slowly shambles toward your party. As he comes into view you see that his body is lined with scars, stitches, cuts, and deep gashes. He slowly and weakly raises a knife from his belt, pointing it at you and then to himself. He drops his staff, holds the handle backwards with two hands and forcefully plunges it between his ribs, twisting it into his body. He falls to his knees as his councilman rushes to his aid. He reaches up and pulls the councilman's heart straight from his chest. The chieftain screams into the air and pounds his fist on the stone floor in anger as blood drips from his chest. His back suddenly erupts in a bloody mess as eight sharp bones form messily from his spine. As he transitions to walking on all fours his muscles seem to grow, two smaller clusters of spiked bones appear at his shoulders. He screams in agony as his teeth recede to make room for sharper and more vicious ones. You see before you now a seemingly unstoppable beast covered in blood and bones.

If one or more characters has been hit by a bloodcursed enemy, he/she is susceptible to the bloodcurse. At the end of the encounter, roll a die according to how many players were hit to see which obtains the curse. When a player is afflicted with the bloodcurse, until they are cured, each time they dip below half health in an encounter, they will go through a similar transformation to the chieftain. When a player is transformed they gain a +2 bonus to strength and AC, a +1 bonus to speed and reflex, and a -2 penalty to intelligence, charisma, wisdom, and will

Wildman Tactics[edit]

Wildmen generally take a very aggressive approach to fighting, preferring to surround their enemies and deal damage up close. Although if they feel that their shaman is being threatened they will quickly form a defensive pattern around him/her. The shamans will do everything in their power to recover their lost allies. Once a basic Wildman falls in battle, a shaman will resurrect it, healing its wounds just enough for it to battle again. Wildmen do not have any sort of government or rules, simply that they will give allegiance to whomever is the strongest.

Wildman Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful nature check.

Nature DC7: The Wildmen are deadly foes, keeping mostly to the shadows to take their enemies by surprise.

Nature DC12: Wildmen have long threatened the small villages along the winter river, pillaging and destroying anything not strong enough to keep them out.

Nature DC17: The Wildmen revere their strongest members, and even their adversaries. If you were to best their leader in combat it is possible that their admiration and allegiance would be to you in their stead.
