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?

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
