Level 8 DiseaseWerewolf Lycanthropy

The rising moon awakens the beast within and it will stop at nothing to be free.

Stage 0: The curse is dormant.
Stage 1: While affected by stage 1, the target takes a –2 penalty to Will.
Stage 2: While affected by stage 2, whenever the target becomes bloodied, it makes a melee basic attack as a free action against an ally adjacent to it.
Stage 3: While affected by stage 3, whenever the target is hit by an attack, it makes a melee basic attack as a free action against an ally adjacent to it.
Stage 4: While affected by stage 4, the target becomes a werewolf under the DM’s control, but only on nights of the full moon. The werewolf ’s bite exposes targets to this curse, rather than werewolf moon frenzy.
Check: At the end of each extended rest, the target makes a Nature check if it is at stage 1, 2, or 3.
11 or lower: The stage of the disease increases by one.
12-15: No Change
16 or higher: The stage of the disease decreases by one.
Special: Lifting the Curse: Bestow the curse on one good creature of your level or higher. At the DM’s discretion, a Remove Affliction ritual performed on the target also lifts the curse.
