1. No more races.
2. Werewolf already approved for humans.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

Also lycantropy itself mean "lycan=wolf and trop=human. So if anything, name Theriantrophy nakes more sense (therian=animal) and I think there could be other shapeshifters for other races( vampires also count as shapeshifters) and mythology actually count werewolves as undead but that's just detail. :mrgreen:

Thanks for info makazuwr32.
Also valid points on the therianthropy, you've seen reading were-world novels I assume?

Myths and other stories of various nations — yes.

By the way, we decider werefolf to be part of humans for some reasons

1) It is a living being, not an undead

2) the base form is human

3) humans haven't unhuman subraces so they can make use of some supernatural being (I'd like a beor-like unit too for them)

4) vampires and werewolves have a feud so they can be sworn enemies being part of 2 opposite factions
