Being Lycanthrope In Eberron

by Wimwick (Neil Ellis) on February 25, 2010

The moon is a harsh mistress. None know this more intimately than the lycanthropes of Eberron. With twelve moons, there is seldom a night when lycanthropes don’t feel the tug of their inner beast.

While 4e has changed the way lycanthropy is handled, we realized that not everyone is happy with these changes. What we wanted to consider was how would the lycanthropic transformation differ depending on which moon was full? For DMs who like handling lycanthropy as a disease that can afflict PCs and using the moon to determine the mood, we have created this resource to spice things up.

The moons of Eberron are not just satellites orbiting the planet. Each one is linked to a dragonmark and the Draconic Prophecy. Each moon in Eberron also carries a different benefit for the lycanthropes born under it. This benefit is only active while the moon in question is full. The planes in Eberron also have an effect on lycanthropes. Should a moon be full and a plane coterminous with Eberron, an added benefit is provided.
