Let's say for a moment that rather than the Hollywood standard issue "cursed to run under the full moon" or the folkloric "wears a magical belt granted by the devil", werewolves are simply a "race" of humans who happen to possess the ability to turn into wolves (normal ones, not gorillas with wolf heads). They've always had it, and presumably their culture and society have evolved to accommodate it. Such a race would likely not behave or live like humans. Assuming their existence on modern day Earth as a "nation" of their own (they were always known to the rest of mankind and are accepted, not living in the shadows or something), how would they live? How would their buildings look? How would their entertainment look? How would they educate their children? What kind of vehicles and computers would they use?
>>33181192>Such a race would likely not behave or live like humans.Why not? If they turn into normal wolves at will, most of the time they'd choose not to because there's no point.
Pretty much this >>33181231Can you imagine how ridiculously boring it would be to have a body that has neither thumbs nor manipulating digits of any kind, doesn't see in colour, and lacks the ability to communicate in a complex language like ours?Maybe it would be a form half of them would just revert into to sleep because it feels 'more natural' or something. But honestly why would you run around as a wolf when you could instead be running around as a person.At least running around as a wolf-headed gorilla has the benefit of being stronger than man.
>>33181192Humans would probably have picked a fight with them towards the start of them branching off of us. They'd either by incredibly victimized and xenophobic towards us, stuck in hiding, or either us or they would've been wiped out.
>>33181192If they live near humans then I think they would form isolated communities (maybe nomadic) and pretend to be normal humans whenever anyone bothers them, and use their wolf form to hunt and to travel without attracting suspicion. If they don't live near any humans then I suspect they would live like a wolf pack does only turning into humans to make tools when needed.
>>33181354Why would they live as a wolf pack in modern day earth?
>>33181192Scientists would want to know how they do it. Do you know how much dissecting would go on? Let's talk politics.>Every human but us cannot do this. Congratulations, you now have the following:Rights groups, pornography(Don't think it won't exist it fucking will.) scientific papers out the wazoo about it, folklore, religious issues, political issues. Have you ever even cracked open the WoD books? There's a reason they call it a World of 'Darkness'. They hide in the shadows to not be seen by the rest of the world, or else the march of humanity would probably fuck them over. It's why whenever you see a show about monsters, they tend to HIDE from the rest of humanity. Pitchforks and fire didn't get less useful, they were just traded for firearms and more firearms.
>>33181354Wolf packs are an artificial construct created only because we corral wolves. In the wild, a 'pack' is more akin to an immediate relation family. And a wolf will leave a pack to find another wolf to hump and make a new pack. You see roughly 5-6 wolves, as that's probably a mother, father, and some kids.
Yeah, that seems like a pretty inconsequential superpower to have, especially if it's common enough that people assume every wolf is a spy.It's like a subspecies of humans who can dislocate any bone effortlessly; okay it's technically superhuman and might get you out of grapples sometimes, but you kind of need your bones in their proper place to do anything useful, so it tells me nothing about what you're like mentally and culturally.Even Twilight werewolves are better.If this is for a setting, try to imagine instead a subspecies of humans where everyone is born with a wolf companion that shares their thoughts.
>>33181417>packs are a social constructUnderstand that SJW werweolves WILL be a thing
>>33181446You mean like Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy, but with wolves instead of shape-shifter animals?
>>33181467Yes, exactly.I knew it was done before, but everything is, even sentient shades of blue, so I don't care.
>>33181192Why do you autistic piece of shit post that picture if you specifically want to talk about shit tier normal wolves
>>33181192Read Discworld, there's some daily problems werewolves have. Like Angua and her shampoo.
>>33181192>How would their buildings look? How would their entertainment look? How would they educate their children? What kind of vehicles and computers would they useExactly the same as normal people's, because they can and likely will choose to be normal people 99% of the time. There'd be little reason to ever use their wolf shape as it'd only make most things harder
Okay, what if with being a wolf came a rush of happiness, of purpose, and general feeling of elation at being one?
>>33183171Now it just sounds like a furry fantasy
>>33181192You could justify the potential animosity between the races (human/werewolf) as farmers blame them whenever a cow or sheep goes missing/gets mauled they blame the werewolf community.
>>33183515Agreed, I think you should have the wolves stick to a compulsive transformation over the rush of happiness/purpose/elation. Otherwise it can get too magical realmy for many people.e.g. they can only hold Human form for 16 hours a day or they get sick. Kind of like Odo from DS9 needing to be in a liquid state.
>>33184320 Unwilling transformation is my fetish
>>33184320>>33183515It was more akin to feeling giddy after running a four-hour trail or something, but okay...
>>33181192>werewolves are just a race that can turn into wolvesSo, you mean the werewolves from Twilight? That's a stupid idea.
>>33184677Feeling giddy doesn't make you give up indoor plumbing and opposable thumbs, anon. They'd live like humans 24/7.
>>33184421Leave your fetishes out of serious worldbuilding. This is supposed to be one of the big tenets of building a world.
>>33184816>hurr Twilight>hurrr stupidOh, come on. Twilight also used the English language, you're not going to start speaking in German now, are you?>>33184871Well, it makes me get up out of my very comfortable chair and go run for hours in the sun, so uh, I don't actually understand what you're trying to say. We're talking about a temporary transformation. I'd be a cat for a day, no problem.
>>33184677Alright, I guess I can see that. That is a decent way to avoid the wolves from constantly complaining about "this terrible curse". Another way to consider the transformations would be: like relaxing a belt after a big meal, or urinating after having to hold it for a few hours, doing a deep stretch, etc.
>>33184915Yeah, that's pretty cool. When you're a bit fed-up with your 9-to-5 job, just go run and hunt inna woods forgetting yourself for a bit.
>>33184948And then get arrested for hunting without a license.
>>33184897>We're talking about a temporary transformation. I'd be a cat for a day, no problem.Exactly my point. That's how the werewolves would live, just like you except being a wolf instead of taking a jog. Perfectly normal humans otherwise.
>>33184977And that's a problem?
>>33184977>just like you except able to transform into a large animal at any time for a long period of timeI'm sure that would have an effect on their culture and disposition.
>>33184977Given how being a trailhound already implies a few things on the way you live your life and your activities/culture (like going to races, or pushing yourself physically), adapting that to a culture of werewolves who can transform voluntarily without the whole curse thing might be easy.Plus the fact that even if they're not compelled to do it, they might still be persecuted and shit like that. After all, no Christian was compelled either to have to be Christian, and there were STILL martyrs.Your arguments are pretty weak, man.
>>33183171I can just jerk off to get the same effect.
>>33185071Why are you assuming that there would be an unified werewolf culture? Just like not every jogger is a trailhound or Christian a martyr, there would be different views on werewolviness among them. Some of them would prefer living innawoods, others would be couch potatoes, just like humans.
>>33185169WELL, I GUESS THAT'S THE END OF HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT THEN.LET'S JUST JERK OFF, WHO CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE RIGHT?
>>33185215Turning into a wolf is something purely for personal pleasure. I can have sex or jerk off or even just take some drugs to have the same effect, minus becoming an animal in the middle of a public place.
Well, rather than discussing why it would be interesting with people than try hard to convince you hard thant it wouldn't, can't you guys interested in this discuss the details of a werewolf "clan" fairly integrated into human society who doesn't necessarily go into BERSERKER mode every time the mood is a little bit more illuminated?
>>33181293canine can see colorthey see blue and yellow, but not red and green.
>>33185287What is there to discuss, anon? They're humans, but their hobbies are bit different from ours.
>>33185310I guess this is the wrong hour/day/week/season for worldbuilding.
>>33185310Right. Instead of hunting animals with guns, they transform into wolves and bite animals to death. Instead of going jogging and hiking, they transform into wolves and get shot by farmers and park rangers. Instead of sitting at home and playing video games, they transform into wolves and have nightmarish human dog-man hybrid puppies with the neighbor's dog.
>>33185328Look, I'm not trying to be contrarian, but if I had werewolf powers I would not use them. See, I am a pretty lazy guy. I wouldn't go on a four hour jog for fun, and just having four legs wouldn't make excercising any more fun for me. At most I would use the wolf shape so I could lick my own dick, but I wouldn't most definitely *not* take part in any "werewolf culture" and run around shitting in the woods. I prefer vidya to hunting, is all.>>33185321We're worldbuilding, just not in the way you approve. There's a difference you know?
>>33185373You're not worldbuilding, you're just saying that you wouldn't enjoy doing that stuff. That's...fine, I guess? But you don't think being able to fly and not doing it would make a liiiiittle bit of difference? At all?
>>33185396In a world much like this one, flying wouldn't have much use beyond recreation, considering the speed of automobiles and aeroplanes and the paranoia of every government in regards to flying objects.
>>33184988Hell, I know people who live like that right now.
>>33185221The wolves from WR don't actually transform, they create a telepathic illusion of being human.
>>33184966 I like that as a potential conflict/avenue of oppression for the werewolves.
>>33185431>it's oppression if you make sure to keep humans from killing wild animals and potentially fucking up the ecosystem
>Sharon, I want you to be honest with me, have you been sleeping with the neighbor? >God, Bill, why would you ever say such awful things?>Well, last night the baby turned into a fucking pup. I don't ever remember my niece turning into a fucking pup in the middle of the night
>>33185396No, I'm pointing out that a werewolf monoculture is unrealistic. You cannot expect even two American werewolves to share similar values. They are individuals, not MMORPG mobs after all.
>>33185446this is AMURICA!those those hippie wusses love those prey animals so much then they can join them out in the wild so we can hunt them too.it's our god given right to express our inner beast, if you don't like it then you can GIT OUT!
>>33181192If these werewolves: lived side by side with modern humans, were accepted, and obeyed societies laws. Could they even be considered wolves anymore?Wouldn't they just be domesticated dogs?
>>33185581Back off, you green party hippy! Hunting licenses are what keeps hippies from surviving out in the woods and keeps stupid little liberal kids from hunting out entire deer populations.
>>33185583>domesticated dogsUGH. DO YOU KNOW HOW OFFENSIVE THAT IS?That's almost as bad as calling them mongrels or mutts.check your un-cursed privilege you wantabe monkey
How would look the werewolf version of tumblr?
>>33185697or worse, the werewolf world version of /pol/.
>>33185667All I am saying is that you need to reconnect with your wolf roots, or else you just become a lapdog for the man.
>>33185762Pfft, how come wolf pride is progressive but white pride is hate speech? Typical SJW double standards.
>>33185732>/werepol/oh god that would be the best kind of /pol/
If these crossbreed expect to use my tax dollars like the were-fare(get it? wellfare) queens they are then they need to get a fucking job( ohhh I'm too cursed to be a productive member of society, BULL SHIT).They spend all their time craving for their next transformation just so they can go wack off by killing some poor animal and fuck each other under the moon.in their "human" phase they are so worthless and lazy and their mutt phase they are too busy killing or taking part in debauchery.
>>33185792>The Jewish conspiracy is behind the vampire conspiracy
>>33185792/x/ would go fucking nutsthey would become like all the tards who scream "sauce?", but for secret to become a werewolf.>I liked being a werewolf before it was cool
>>33185785When we have more than only 8 werewolf congressmen and senators then you can start talking about how werewolf pride isn't progressive. Until then spare us your anti-werewolf hate speech. It is attitudes like yours that caused the Russian timber-werewolf genocide!
>>33185965Timber-werewolves were a splinter sect bent on terrorism, they had it coming.
>>33185904Jewish Zionist Vampires vs. The Fascist /pol/ Werewolf Brotherhood.Actually, just seeing a big werewolf vs. vampires setting would be pretty entertaining.
>>33184871For someone on /tg/, you sure lack imagination. Ignoring fetishbait nonsense entirely: -ability to chase down and eat live prey that tastes better than anything you've ever had as a human-the best back-cracking/pseudo-chiropractor session ever as your bones shift back and forth-ability to laze around on all fours, what looks more comfortable than a dog passed out on its side? I'm not even trying here, anon. Stop being so imaginationless.
>>33186012Sounds like you'd just like to pretend to be a dog.
>>33185965Till I see a Mutt Politain worth supporting; them and their kind can just stick to the bogs, thickets, and back alleys like the monsters scum they are.
>>33185985They weren't terrorists in the beginning. The werewolves were only using peaceful demonstrations until the farmers turned to violence. A few werewolves would organize a protest then the farmer backed Russian government would send in a helicopter to kill off the protesters. When the purges started what other option were the timber wolves supposed to do?If the U.S. gov didn't offer amnesty THERE WOULDN'T BE ANY TIMBER WOLVES LEFT!
>>33181192>werewolves are simply a "race" of humans who happen to possess the ability to turn into wolvesthis is the premise of pic relatedthey were all gang/mafia members.
>>33185732Don't those guys exist in WoD?
>>33181354What the fuck? Are they Amish?
>>33186012None of those are reasons for me to change my lifestyle, they're perks at best. You can't build a culture around the ability to lick your balls, anon.
>>33186084I think you're barking at the wrong tree here. Or do you have any logs to prove that?
>>33186252They exist here.
>>33186330>this picture will never not be funny for me
>>33186291Didn't say anything about changing your whole lifestyle. I was arguing against the guy who said werewolves would just stay in human form 24/7.
>>33186740I'm the guy who said 'werewolves stay human 24/7', but that wasn't really the crux of my point. (my point was that werewolf culture wouldn't exist)
Alright. I don't want to be labelled "No imagination", but imagine if you suddenly gainef the ability to turn into a wolf. Not a "Gorilla with a Wolf head", but an ordinary wolf. Pretty much a dog. Can you go to the store as a dog? Can you use a phone? Could you walk around in public without someone calling animal control on you? What's the point?I mean, sure, you could go out and kill your own food, but you'd either wimp out before you got the kill, or become revolted after you bite a large hole in your prey's neck and the blood starts gushing out. Maybe you could go outside for a run, but there'd literally be no point.
>>33187172Wolves are pack hunters. Unless you knew what you were doing you probably wouldn't even manage to kill anything.
>>33187245There are a couple wolf species that are solitary. Even the pack ones have individuals that go it alone. They usually just go after small prey like rabbits
>>33187172There has to be something else that they'd get access to, otherwise they are just bleh.Like, give them spider-man like abilities. Retard strength, regeneration, but an inability to not wolf out when they get angry/hurt.Then they become a force to be reckoned with, and it's no small wonder they have their own country. Make them like Israel-they are nasty motherfuckers to mess with because they'll straight up assassinate you if you fuck with them. And then they'll play the victim card.
>>33187340Wolves have a great sense of hearing and smell. They could use that ability has police, detectives, rescuers, guards, park rangers, etc.
>>33187392Oh yeah, but that's more a matter of finding some convenient use for their powers in modern society, You might have a partner who rolls around as a wolf for a few hours instead of a canine unit in the police force, but when it comes to society changing things they have nothing. Since being human is by far the better form to be in.
>>33187392Make them all lean and muscley with lots of endurance and surprising strength, too. Not because wolves have that, but because they literally run. EVERY DAY. And use all their muscles to do so.If the fitness transfers between forms, werewolves would be ottermode as fuck
>>33187457He meant they get those abilities in human form, too.
>>33187457If you were in a cold environment, wolf form would be better.
>>33186330Aryan Werewolf reporting in
>>33187485oh, but do they get the drawbacks as well then? An anon mentioned earlier that wolves can't see red and green.Does this mean in human form they can't see those colours?
>>33187585Sure. Have them be red/green colorblind. Shit, there are regular people with that problem.
>>33187598Well, I think that'd help form an aspect of their society, aesthetics and user interface wise. An entire nation/race of people who are red/green colour blind would definitely have differences to our society.
>>33187631Terrorists have no problem with having green/red wires in their bombs."Werewolf Jack Bauer, in order to save the world, you must cut the green wire, not the red one.""DAMMIT CHLOE!"
>>33187684Nah they could probably tell the difference in a situation like that (although there would be room for error)I was thinking more traffic lights, street signs, computers and media. Seeing things quickly and not having a chance to 'work out' what colour it is would be where I would make changes.
>>33187714Not much of a problem anymore.http://enchroma.com/
>>33187980yeah but their society would have developed without those.
>>33188117>Not attempting to rectify a flaw.Society developed with cancer killing us. I don't see us developing cancer acceptance.
>>33188169Hey, what I mean is they'd already have an infrastructure in place that is designed for people who are colourblind. They might later fix this using science.But for the purposes of modern society we're only just getting to the point where we might possibly be able to fix it by injecting stuff into people's eyes.I mean you're hardly going to go "Well we fixed colourblindedness, let's just completely re-build the country to account for this" You'd have your weird coloured traffic lights and shit like that left over.
>>33188255Or you could look at this link.http://enchroma.com/
>>33188255Why would you have to inject anything into people's eyes if they can just wear glasses?
>>33188353because that's where medical research is going to cure being colourblind.The Enchroma glasses are all well and good, but they're like wearing glasses compared to laser eye surgery. A way of dealing with something, not a way of permanently fixing it.
>>33187585>>33187598>human form>colorblindIt's a lack of cone/rod receptors in the eyes because carnivore/scavengers didn't have a need to evolve more than 2. Monkeys and other omnivores developed 3 because we deal with plants which have more colors. We have additional cells in the eyes dedicated to sensing another frequency band. We also have things like thumbs, bipedal posture, different bone structure etc which (Most, depending on type) werewolves keep most of these humanoid traits when in mutant form. A werewolf that's colorblind while human would also have no thumbs, etc. It just doesn't make any sense. Only makes sense if it's the classic dire-wolf 100% non-humanoid type when transformed, and then it wouldn't necessarily be colorblind while human either unless it's going to lose thumbs and bipedalism when "human" as well.huehuehue buzzkill
so what are some interesting origins of the lycanthropy curse?I've heard of the one where the woman drank lion piss and became a werelion. That's a funny one.
>>33188469I wear glasses. I'm going to go ahead and say, whatever bro, some people can't afford laser surgery.If werewolves existed, rich ones would get surgery, everyone else would splurge on glasses/run red lights.
>>33188486>Werewolves constantly smell like musk. Even as humans.Can you imagine a fa/tg/uy werewolf? Ew.
>>33188550Shit, I broke my glasses. Didn't stop me from driving. Can't make money to afford them without going to work, so it's whatever.
>>33188550From what I read a couple of years ago the Enchroma glasses weren't great, they helped but it wasn't like >oh shit I can see exactly like a normal person now. They just helped make the different colours slightly more distinct.Of course that could have changed in 2 years, but I doubt it.
>>33188499There's dozens.Curse of the gods.Cursed item.Family heritage curse.Good old fashion mutants.Corrupting/addictive magic transformations ieMagic belt/item of wolf materialPagan ritual ie drinking water out of pawprint at the full moon etc.Then there's shit that's not even "curses" like plain old magic transformation spells.Lots of unique names referring to each too IE Loup Garrou or whatever was specifically the family heritage curse and type.Fun fact, I never directly looked any of these up. It just crops up in fantasy fiction FUCKING EVERYWHERE.
>>33181417If you don't know shit about something, don't open your mouth on it. Canine social hierarchy is actually quite complex and doesn't exist because we 'corral' them - it existed before us retard.
>>33188612It lets them see red and green lights. Good enough.
>>33188568>Werewolves constantly smell like musk. Even as humans.THIS is actually probable, as opposed to colorblindness. Thanks for reading my post correctly.Probably not LOSE traits (IE lose third color receptor), but rather gain ones the other form didn't have.As a human>Has a partially formed tail>Fur type body hair mixed in with regular>Shedding with seasons>Musk smell etc>Anal glands / spray. Oh god why.>Third eyelid that humans lost (Nictitating membrane)>Additional lens filter in eye, altered red-eye effect in pictures to be greener>Minor compromises in basic bone proportions between the two formsYeah human form werewolves would be ugly motherfuckers. But the Nictitating membrane would be a kickass party trick.
>>33184977>>33185408ackchually I think their ability to turn into a wolf would be a big part of their cultural and metaphysical identity. Just like Humans born in different climes and cultures will develop different aphorisms, outlooks and religious themesfor instance if people could fly the concept of state or centralized 'air space' would by necessity have developed very differently, as well as the necessity of airships when you have cheap alternative
>>33188841I think the tail thing is unnecessary from a aesthetic standpoint, mostly because I don't want them to be furry fetish objects.
>>33187340Sounds a lot like the Dog-Faces from the Ariadnaa faction in infinity; mechanically and behavior wise. Dog-Faces will typically wolf out whenever they get angry or scared etc. While they have a slightly different than normal human form (i.e. slight muzzle, Robin Williams levels of body hair, yellow eyes, etc.) everything else is practically the same as average joe blow Ariadnan until they wolf out.Although not with the same, turn into a wolf for fun, styled mechanics that OP was referencing. I think the way the societies of Ariadna adapted to Dog faces, and treat them as either second class or equal citizens depending entirely on which community the Dog-faces live in is something for OP to consider.
>>33188945Tails on humans is an IRL thing. NOT aesthetic, they look like rat or pig tails. Easily broken, PITA that's usually surgically removed. Embarrassing birth/genetic defect, and they'd have to keep coming up with excuses why they don't just have it surgically removed (because it just grows back).
>>33186012>-ability to chase down and eat live prey that tastes better than anything you've ever had as a humanCarnivores typically only possess 1/25th to 1/40th the sense of taste that a human does - it's what allows them to eat all the gristly unpleasant bits that don't taste right. Herbivores however typically possess senses of taste 400x more acute than humans - so they can recognize what foods might not be good to eat because of small things like fungal spores etc.
>>33187340>There has to be something else that they'd get access to, otherwise they are just bleh.Berserker stereotype is overused.Make them schizo unwilling-druids, and still fragile/skittish as real animals. They've had another lesser mind forcibly inserted into theirs, but it doubles as a constant radio receiver for nature magic 24/7.They now have natural access and inherent use of nature magic not normally accessible, at cost of some sanity and control.>>33189214>Humans have better sense of taste>>33188841>Werewolf would retain better sense of taste rather than lose itAnd now it's a man-wolf that's a picky eater, constantly rambling about how the earth sprites are putting magic in the human's water supply why don't you believe me
>>33188499I kind of like infinity's origin of the "werewolf" curse.Weird semisenitent almost-wolf natives of an alien planet (antipodes) bite a pregnant human woman; or pregnant woman gets one of the viruses (like bird-flu and swine flu) transmittable between antipodes and humans (because space magic alien biology). Then her kid is going to be born a Dog-Face (i.e. werewolf, but with sci-fi space magic as an excuse) The virus is not communicable from dog faces to humans. Just antipodes to pregnant women, so the Dog-Faces can be rather rare or very common depending on the antipode population around a community of Ariadnan settlers.For the most part Dog-Faces are pariahs, social outcasts, or second class citizens. But over the hundred or so years of living in Ariadnan society their lots in life are slowly improving, and they are being accepted more and more.
>>33189284>fragile/skittish as real animals>granted nature magic not normally accessible at cost of some sanity and control>man-wolf that's a picky eater>constantly rambling about how the earth sprites are putting magic in the human's water supplyHa I need to use this.PC's hired to track down and kill werewolf terrorizing local populace. When they corner it, it fits none of the wild man barbarian stereotypes and instead reveals a broader conspiracy where the werewolf is caught up in this as a loose end, which "THEY" are trying to dispose of as a stool pigeon before the werewolf, the only local capable of spying on nature magic who's aligned with the humans, can ruin the whole plan.The werewolf character himself is a comical schizophrenic, who is a pickier eater than even the PC's, is absolutely abhorred by violence, and an unreliable coward who would rather tend to his gardens than be caught in the middle of all this. AKA ironic mountain hermit.Cue PC's now caught in this conspiracy where they can't let powers that be know they know what they know while still having to stop it.Sadly, I've yet to GM for players smart enough not to blow the whole thing five minutes in.
>>33189620Yeah, if you have just one EXP hungry murderhobo PC that decides to kill the guy, because werewolf, that entire plot gets torpedo'd.
>>33181192>Hollywood standard issue "cursed to run under the full moon"that's not a hollywood standard only, it's one of the folkloric versions, probably even more popular than magic belt or skin/somersaulting over a stump with a knife stuck in it/etc>>33181231wolves run faster than men and can hunt their food/protect themselves without any weaponalso they can pasture cattleit's not bad as an utility formalso it's possible that to take that form is more pleasant than to be a man, as it's often said in shapeshifting stories
>>33189768They'll loot his hut. Murderhobos are always hoarders too. I can leave rambling journals there, enough to give the plot thread and make them feel like the assholes that they are.They also might catch on if it doesn't really give a fight and we're only twenty minutes into the campaign.Fuck it I might even have a PC forcibly were-wolfed by the fairies when they realize the fairies need another scapegoat to kill. Obviously the PC that killed him they will infect because it's easy to claim to the villagers that the PC was bitten in the fight and tried to hide it. Then the PC's realize what's going on, and the asshole PC will pay for his sins in will-checks.Hopefully the PC won't complain too much about a gimped character if he's getting sweet druid magic out of the deal. God knows shitty players love snowflake characters.
>>33189978>Hopefully the PC won't complain too much about a gimped character if he's getting sweet druid magic out of the deal. God knows shitty players love snowflake characters.I'm going to laugh my ass off when I see this in a "Shitty DM Stories" thread a month from now.
>>33190585Only people that have never DM'ed see everything as railroading.
>>33190683I am the DM. I don't force curses on my players. Asshat.
>>33190778So you've got an elaborate conspiracy that you've designed to throw the players into. Once they're actually caught in the damned thing you don't need to railroad shit.And twenty minutes in one guy intentionally torpedoes the whole thing.OK smartass, what do YOU do?
>>33190938MoVe on and not "punish" my players.
>>33189454How many pregnant women did they HAVE?
>>33181192Discworld. Just use Discworld Uberwald werewolves.
>>33194661Dunno, lots.Ariadna's population is in the millions, and the colonies/nation has existed for more than a century. They haven't managed to exterminate the nativ-ermm, I mean, antipode race. So quite a few pregnant women are infected I'd assume.
>>33197032You wouldn't think there'd be a problem after the first few? Like "oh shit, my wife has a mutant fucking baby, into the trash it goes."Or, lets not let our women get infected and have them in special non-furry wards.
>>33181192http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_LakeYour thread reminded me of this show. Interesting concept, I thought, but it flopped.
>>33189944Wolves would be faster, but they'd have poor endurance compared to a human. So you could argue that humans are better suited to hunting prey by exhaustion.And considering the size of animals humans tended to actively hunt. (Not like rabbit traps/snares etc) you wouldn't really need that extra speed anyway.
>>33197116Plenty of babies did go into the trash, it was pretty dire for the first few ariadnans.....Also there are entire colonies on Ariadna that pretty much devote themselves to just antipode extermination (Much like 4chan, the 'Murican colonies fight a constant war of attrition against the dread furry menace). Problem is antipdoes breed like rats, and humans are effectively outnumbered on Ariadna 100:1. If you live in the outskirts (like in the British and 'Murican colonies) your wife has about a 1 in 10 (sometimes more) chance of having a dog-faced baby. The Russians and french colonies have it much better off though. So Dog faces are like a 1 in 100 kind of thing for them.
As has been stated in a previous thread, the only true werewolves are Humpwolves.
>>33188955Christ, no offense, but how can infinity make Space werewolves so bland?
>>33189944Then again almost no-one in developed nations hunts their food, so I don't see werewolves doing it either.
>>33198680Simple. They started with crunch first, then wrote fluff afterwards. Out of curiosity though, how would you spice it up? I have been kicking around the idea of making an infinity tabletop campaign, and any input on the setting would be nice to hear.
>>33181192Jeremy Varner's "Shard's of Glass" covers the whole notion of what it would be like to live in the modern world as a supernatural creature, pick it up on Amazon for a back
>>33198954>Hey Larry, let's go hunting! >Naw man, Mickey D's sounds...you know, faster.Amerifat werewolves don't hunt.
>>33199181There's tons of Strong Woman in a Supernatural World novels. They usually aren't that good.Hell the Dresden Novels aren't GREAT fiction.
>>33199220Choosing between hunter-gathering in the woods or driving to the 7-11 isn't much of a choice really.
>>33199237Shards of Glass isn't a 'strong woman' book, it's about a pretty /tg/ Cop
Werewolves get special hunting permit so they can be used to keep the deer/rabbit/etc population in check.
>>33188667Canine social hierarchy:Father is known as 'Alpha Male'Mother is known as 'Alpha Female'children are 'Beta'not that complex
>>33199271Overweight werewolves. Ugh, the swampass. Plus, if they have to get naked to shapeshift...They all wear oversized shirts and shorts to shapeshift because they're embarassed. Except fucking Jimmy, who likes flashing his gunt.
>>33199308That's racist. It's like saying that all black people are good at basketball and love fried chicken and watermelon.
>>33199384Except they do.
>>33199379>hairy unwashed swamp ass>with clumps of 'matter' stuck to the pelt>"it's muh werwolf musk!"
>>33199399Of course they do, everybody loves fried chicken and watermelon, black, white, whatever, but that's beside the point.
>>33199384>>33199399I'm kind of curious where the watermelon and fried chicken=black people stereotype came from. I don't think I've ever met a person who dislikes either regardless of race/gender.
>>33199460Both used to be considered "Trash" foods and were associated with poverty. Frying was a simple, communal cooking method that made the less desirable cuts of chicken more appetizing. Watermelon was literally transported here from it's native soil in west Africa to provide water and nutrition to slaves working in the field. It's extremely high moisture content made it an economic replacement to giving out cups or water breaks to the well to workers in the hot southern climate.
I've read a series in which the werewolves were landed nobility who lived in an oogly boogly haunted forest filled with fae.They were otherwise pretty much just humans who turn into wolves. The alpha female was a toff and a lingerie model. I thought it was pretty cool.
>>33199508Other things that used to be considered 'trash food' - Lobster, Barbecue, many forms of fish
>>33199407MUH SIDES>Werewolf fighting for dominance is like watching hairy sausages push at eachother, their own weight preventing them from any actual martial ability. They call these fights "tusslin". They both claim themselves the winner.
>>33188331But what about the time before it was invented? Yes, it would have been invented faster if it was a larger problem but there would still be a time before.
>>33199631>two hairy mounds of fat flesh puffing and wheezing>dominance is established when the other goes into cardiac arrest
>>33199646Yes, but because we're changing history, these medical advancements would have taken priority, and thus would have been developed sooner. The "olden days" would have been filled with blue/white/yellow signs.
>>33199673>Despite their claims that fights are "TO THE DEATH!" No one ever actually dies. The worst fight was when Marcus chipped a tooth on the pavement when he tripped on a curve waddling towards Mike.>Werewolves utilize WalMart Scooters, even modify them in Wolf form, and race eachother. It isn't actually that exciting, but they find it extremely funny. No one else does, honestly.>They ALWAYS want to be werewolves in LARPs because "We're actually werewolves". The few non-werewolf LARPERS who are "werewolves" are actually faster than them, in any form.
>>33199760>Get forced to be on the Werewolf team.>Annoyingly spergalicious Werewolf teammembers attempt to bellybump you and welcome you to "THE REAL MAN'S TEAM">MFW
>>33199760>The wolf form is actually so fat that the stomach drags on the floor, preventing them from running. Or walking. Or even crawling, really.
>>33199798They're like smelly, disgusting corgis that wash their ass with more ass.
>>33199795>bellybumps soon turn into 'yiff'
>>33199833>ALL their interactions are homoerotic, not disgusting because they are gay, but because the Werewolves are disgusting. However, if anyone points this out to them, they call them faggots.>Guys, why the fuck are you all over eachother? Why is your hand brushing his moobs everytime you interact?>HURR HURR FAGGOT WANNA TUSSLE?!
Full moon causes a strong impulse to be in wolf form. You can resist, but you won't be able to do anything else since you'll be focused on not turning. There is no advantage or benefit to not turning. Some just use it has bragging right/betting. I bet I can stay in human form longer than anyone else, losers have buy pizza etc.Grooming/hair saloons would see a lot more business. Some may even only specialize for werewolves. If you're human and you don't give bellyrubs/ear scratches, you're not considered a true friend. human friends are pretty much forced to act has speaker and person with thumbs when they're in wolf form. The cone of shame is illegal punishment in a few states. They use horrible wolf/canine puns has pick up lines>Ever do it doggystyle?>Wanna help me bury a bone?>I have some lipstick for you.>I'll let you sniff my ass if you let me sniff yours.>Wanna know your fortune? You'll have to eat the fortune cookie I got you first.>I'm in heat, so let's fuck.>Feeling knotty >etc
>>33199937And the gayest post this evening happens. Not even the guys who admitted being into morbidly obese werewolf sex are gayer than this post."Scritches" Jesus Christ
>>33199833>Skinny human guy trapped between two obese werewolves. Attempts to escape their sweaty grasp, and succeeds. Realizing that, actually, he can just WALK AWAY faster than they can run, he just stays 8 feet away.>BUT HE HAS BEEN MARKED
>>33199957I'm not saying those are good things, but it would probably happen. Being constantly hounded because human hands are best at scratching etc. Really I just wanted an excuses to post horrible puns. Have to order pizza and all the fatwolves are in wolf form. The pizza guy just hears barking and howling in the background has someone orders pizza.
>>33200015(it's just Dorito dust, though)
>>33200038THEY CAN TRACK THAT SCENT EVERYWHERE. They can't track anything else though. Smoking kills the scent organs.
All the asshats that would dye their fur and finally become real life sparkledogs.
>>33200063>they mark their territory with ranch dressing>accidentally, no in purpose though
>>33199937The horrifying thing is this actually happens at Furry Cons.You may now kill yourself.
>>33200093>FAT RAINBOWS...well, tubes. RAINTUBES
>>33200101Thread is now archived. Please vote. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html
>>33200247If the thread is worth staying on the archive then people will vote when they see it on the archive.There's no reason to beg for votes unless you think it's too shitty to stay on its own, which in that case it's no worth keeping
>>33200300The last bit is really the only bit worth keeping, honestly.
>>33200101>Female werewolves are massive hambeasts that not even the fatwolves deem touchable. Black guys like them though.
>>33197756honestly.... theoretically prehistoric humans used to hunt by exhausting their prey, but for modern ones, have you ever took a hike with a dog? that thing will run twice as much as you exploring everything and will be more fresh looking at you tired face with a smile. and not like it had any secret training>>33198954in medieval times a werewolf nation living by itself will probably be a (rather small) nation of hunters/shepherds
>>33200703We aren't discussing medieval werewolves, though. We're discussing modern day ones.
>>33200809It's obvious he wants werewolves to live as Amish hermits in the Ozarks. Or can't you tell which posts are his in this thread?
>>33201155What would werewolf rumspringa look like?
>>33201279A Furry Convention
>>33201279>Oh my god, this shirt is REAL polyester! It's plastic that looks like cloth!>This brick is vibrating and flashing colors and there's a bunch of numbers on the screen. Wait, why are you talking to it?>You people keep goats and domesticated wolves as PETS?!>BEGONE FROM THIS HOUSEHOLD SPIRIT- Wait, what? It's a door? Why is it made out of glass? Doors don't open by themselves!>They're called cappa-what?>Get your hands off me! I refuse to be detained simply because I could not stand to wear that itchy, claustrophobic plastic shirt one more second! It's summer, why you people torture yourselves with clothes in this heat is beyond me!
>>33199151Maybe we could add in a sort of double personality to them. When thet become wolves, they take on a more survivalist and naturalist mind frame. Perhaps also have some sort of pack tendencies, such as, if they are in a squad, they may select one them to be the alpha. Or maybe we could go into the actual virus more. Its effects on the creatures of the planet or, what happens when its tampered ith
>>33199937>The cone of shame is illegal punishment in a few states.HAHAHAHAHAHA
>>33199937I would totally give a werewolf musclegirl bellyrubs if she was in wolf form. It would probably be her biggest guilty secret pleasure.
>>33200703Have you seen how many breaks the dog takes during it though? And how often it pants... imagine what happens when you deprive it of water and repeat the same stuff for over a day.
>>33206304the average human breaks and pants even more. painted dogs and wolves both would chase down prey for miles. Canines hunt in the same way we do. It wasn't random chance that man chose dogs as our companions. We only have the advantage over them because we can carry water with us and have pointy sticks to make the kill with faster
