In Warriors of Sehanine, a mini-adventure for levels 3-5, the players are tasked with liberating a recently attacked wood elf stronghold from a black dragon. Did I mention the wood elves are all werewolves?

Evil and monstrous player characters are often sought after, and often a headache for DMs to incorporate, even when their role-played as “one of the good ones.” Ishavar’s Guide to Curses adds several new, and most importantly well-balanced, player races, subclasses, and curses which should satisfy both sides of the table.
