Did Midnight Hunt Fix the Werewolf Mechanic?

Last month, I wrote an article about the history the Werewolf creature type in Magic the Gathering and the fact that I believed the original transformation mechanic was not impossible to play, but that it was chaotic and unmanageable. A few of you called me crazy and reassured me that TRANSFORMATION as it was inContinue reading “Did Midnight Hunt Fix the Werewolf Mechanic?”

Innistrad Speculation: The Tribes of Midnight Hunt

Last week we looked at the overall possibilities that might be coming over the next year. This week, let’s focus in on the next set coming for Wotc, Midnight Hunt. This set was originally called Innistrad: Werewolves in the previews telling us that we would be focusing in on the werewolf side of Innistgrad. CrimsonContinue reading “Innistrad Speculation: The Tribes of Midnight Hunt”

Why Play Weres?

By BDC My first thought in writing this article is, “Why not?”  I mean have you read the writeup in the 5E Monster Manual?  Pretty much gives most of the perks without any of the drawbacks.  You get automatic bonus’ to strength or dexterity, natural weapons, ups to AC while in hybrid or animal formContinue reading “Why Play Weres?”

Why Play the Lythari

Today, we look a different ilk of the shapeshifter type: The Lythari (in some Faerunian tomes listed as Ly-tel-quessir). Called in most sources, ‘a true lychanthrope’, the Lythari are actually a sub-race of Elves going back to before the early days of Faerun. When that world was young, they appeared on Faerun…
