[ERROR] No.18884968 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Hey fa/tg/uys. Once again D&D Insider Subscribers have received an interesting article, and once again it's my duty and pleasure to share it with you.

Today's article is about making lycanthropes in 4e, and includes themes for Werebears, Wererats, and of course Werewolves.

Werelink? Therelink.


I'll be posting it in image files in the thread, so those of you who don't like pdfs can chime in. Feel free to discuss, say what you think, all that.

>> No.18884976

We start out with the obligatory introduction.

You know Wizards, I've never actually seen anyone who uses your lore as published.

>> No.18885038

The neat thing about werebears is that any class can off-tank with them.

Of course they're the most useful to druids until level 10, but then all of these themes are.

>> No.18885054

Oh please. After Badger Tits, nothing Dragon releases really surprises me.

On to wererat.

>Werelink? Therelink.
I like the way you werethink.

And thanks for posting these.

>> No.18885069

As a side-note: apparently the picture in the article header was the only picture they had of either a werebear or a wererat.

Seriously Wizards. You employ the guy who did the art for Werewolf: the Apocalypse sometimes, see if you can't option his unused old stuff.

It's like everyone's a kobold. So much potential abuse, after level 10 anyway.

And finally, the werewolves.

Can someone please point me the proper way of looking for those DDI updates?

Thanks. (Not asking for links, /rs/ searches never gimme the sweet articles like OP)

Not really, it's more of a "...the fuck?" than anything.

>> No.18885108

There really is no reliable way to get them, aside fro paying Wizards money like I do.

I only upload the most interesting articles, and things people directly request.

>> No.18885123

it's people like you that I like, you take the hit money wise, but are still willing to share with others for what will probably be no return

you're as awesome as this sleeping bag

>> No.18885142

Also, Jesus Christ that Werewolf in my last picture. They could've called it a wererat and I wouldn't have known any better.

This is the last page, folks. It's been an honor to upload this for you.

>> No.18885146

>Werelink? Therelink.

Burn in hell for that.

Thanks for the share, though.

>> No.18885162

>While you are in beast form, you can't use weapon or implement attack powers that lack the beast form keyword,

So these are completely worthless for anyone who is not a Druid. Good to know.

>> No.18885180

My thanks, kind Anon. I figure that, just because I'm the only one that paid, doesn't mean that I'm the only one who should be able to better his game with the material they provide.

After all, that's what /tg/ is about. A bunch of grubby, if friendly, fa/tg/uys coming together to share stores and make each others' games awesome.

I'm taking requests, by the way. If anyone sees any D&D Insider articles they'd like uploaded and shared, I can do that.

Since I mentioned Badger Tits earlier, here's the Hengeyokai player race article they come from.


>> No.18885181

Two words
Pixie wererats.

Tiny dire rats with wings.

Not sure what class would be best, as you want one with a bad MBA so you using the secondary power happens when you hit level 10

Battlemind maybe?

>> No.18885194

Read the level 10 class features for each of them. They make the themes useful for every class. Though why one should have to wait till level 10 is beyond me.

On the bright side, it's now super-easy to be a tanky bear druid.

>> No.18885207

I'd find Pixie Werebears to be at least 100% more adorable.

>Oh hey look a flying pushie bear OH GOD ITS MAULING EVERYTHING.

>> No.18885240

none of the D&D insider cover 3.5 do they?

and was that one about kobolds insider or dragon magazine?

>> No.18885263

>Tiny dire rats with wings.

So, pigeons?

>> No.18885267

Insider is a subscription service that gives you access to the entire backlog of electronic Dragon and Dungeon magazine issues, as well as new content from those magazines and services such as the online Character and Monster builders.

No 3.5 content is online, that I know of, and I *think* I've been to the very start of what they have online.

If you're referring to pic related, I believe that's from Dungeon, though possibly Dragon, and it's definitely 4e related. It's one of the earlier articles available on the website, from right after 4e began its run.

>> No.18885288


Beware the cooing, my child, for with the beating of large, soft wings and the rustling of garbage comes our end.

>> No.18885320

yeah, that was part of it, some scanon posted the whole lot a while ago, but I only saved that pic because I wasn't interested in running games at the time.

also wtf is bloodied and what oes it do, one of my friends at collage keeps mentioning it but she's never said what it actually is, and i've read/played 4e.

>> No.18885328

Bloodied just means you're at half HP. Some abilities only trigger when you or your opponents become bloodied.

>> No.18885342

That episode, man.

Some people are meant to live with people. Some people are meant to live with pigeons.

>> No.18885352

Bloodied is shorthand for "half HP." Certain enemies or players gain attacks or features depending on bloodied status. Tieflings, for example, gain a racial +1 to attack any bloodied creature.

I'm looking for the article my pic came from, but nothing yet. I did, however, find a REALLY COOL article with an alternate 4e interpretation of kobolds as a player race, complete with feats, utilities, and a different racial ability.

>> No.18885382

Did I forget to link the fucking article?



>> No.18885402

There we go, found the kobold victory chart article.


Any other requests?

Why are Werewolves always evil? I mean...Well fuck I can understand them being savage and having trouble living with people....But most werewolves just being uniformly evil? Nearly all Werebears being good?

The general idea of werecreatures having alignments is that the creature the afflicted person has inside them has something of its own agenda that gradually seeps into the person's actions. If it's a werewolf, it wants to hunt, kill, and slaughter, and as the person progresses, they get more used to this kind of forced behavior and end up being warped into embracing it.

Werebears have some schtick about being protectors of the wilds, although why that makes them Good is beyond me. The whole thing is kind of hokey, and doesn't make much sense.

Hell, the entire concept of forcing an alignment is something I'm not really on board with.

>> No.18886429

The concept of a wild animal being purely alligned to Khorne appauls me.


>> No.18886430


It's like how vampires are inherently evil.

Werebeasts aren't naturally occuring critters, like orcs or elves, so them having an inherent alignment is okay.

They are getting a write up in the new heroes of the underdark book (not actually the name) and the article is from that book.

Eh, I don't think that having alignment shifts for diseases/death makes any sense.

>> No.18886619

But yeah the concept is RETARDED.
Animals don't have alignments.
I can't think of a lot of playable races that have alignments either.

Preach on. :p

But the article as it's read pretty much says Werebeasts are naturally occurring critters. They breed true and when they breed with humans spawn Shifters.
The various origins point towards being created by some god/goddess.

And while not every Vampire isn't evil theirs a differnce between Werebeasts and Vampires. Like being dead, having to subsist on a diet of human blood, immortality that when combined with having to feed on people (Which sometimes results in death.) Ultimately leads to predatory sociopaths.

Most werebeasts don't seem to need to feed on human flesh. And are even locked into good alignments.
Why do Werewolves automatically pull the EVIL! Alignment? Whats the justification for having Werebears locked into being Good and Werewolves evil in a way that isn't totally arbitrary?

>> No.18886624

Comedic suffocating or serious suffocating? If comedic then sure.
Why do you add a , line on your post?
And it's tragic because the beast wouldn't die for a long while and he's left alone when the one he love is gone. It would've been better if he died with her.
I do not have an ooze-like shape.

I just had a thought. Medusa is a lycan of snake? She was turned into this by unnatural means.
