Bestial

Bestial characters most often occur when powerful Beastkin mate with other humanoid races; they sometimes occur through bestiality when one parent is closely linked to a particular animal, or if an ancestor was infected with Lycanthropy. Bestial characters are capable of living within cities and towns, but they are often distant from other humanoids. These characters often find that they have an aptitude for a skill which suits the animal related to their heritage.

  • This heritage can be taken at any time.

Costume Requirements

  • Bestial characters' garb should reflect the animal associated with their heritage.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Bestial characters are tapped into the animal within themselves and often react in an animalistic fashion. Characters who selected Rage or Burst of Strength receive the Compelled to Rage (Minor) flaw for which they receive no experience bonus.
  • Bestial characters treat armour and shields as if their hindrance was doubled; however, this does not apply to leather, hide, or fur armour.
