Complete Guide to Werewolves

Watermarked PDF

One shapechanger stands above them all as the ultimate source of fear and cunning. For centuries, werewolves have been staples of folklore worldwide, spreading terror in the night while hiding amongst mankind in the day. Now the Complete Guide to Werewolves brings this historical monster into your d20 game. Grounded in folklore from multiple cultures, this thorough and imaginative sourcebook gives you everything you need to engage the world's most dangerous shapeshifter.

The Complete Guide to Werewolves takes a comprehensive view of its legendary subject. With material based on mythology, it offers new options for werewolf characters, including not just the usual assortment of feats and prestige classes, but also rules for breeds, lunar influence, and weaknesses or "thorns." Every aspect of the lycanthropic process is examined, from life stages to mindset to new lyncathropic diseases, and the book includes a selection of powerful NPCs and new monsters ready to be inserted into any campaign.

The Complete Guide to Werewolves is 100% world-neutral and stand-alone, and can be easily integrated into any campaign.


  • A believable approach to werewolves grounded in traditional folklore from many cultures
  • Rules for all aspects of a werewolf campaign, including birth moons, life stages, werewolf breeds, lunar influences, deities and domains, different kinds of transformations, and more
  • Almost three dozen new feats, allowing you to customize werewolves however you'd like (whether PC or NPC), as well as a new system of "thorns" or weaknesses that balance out feats
  • New prestige classes: the benandanto (good-aligned werewolves dedicated to slaying the forces of supernatural evil), alpha lukos (high priests of the cult of Lycaeon), alpha lucerus (priests of the wolf-god Lupercus), lupicinus (a wolf charmer), lupis venator (the werewolf's most hated enemy), Ulfhednir (werewolves dedicated to slaughter), and Varga Mor (wolf witches)
  • New monsters relating to werewolves, new spells, new cleric domains, and new magic items
  • A selection of iconic NPCs ready to be inserted into your campaign

And much more, all of it compatible with the 3.5 revision!

I'm the author, so it's difficult for me to review this book. Instead, I'll refer to an existing review: [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
