Lycan

Definition

Lycan is short for Lycanthrope. Traditionally a lycanthrope is one who is able to change from human form into an animal. The most well-known thanks to countless horror movies is the werewolf. However, there are many different tales of shapeshifters from around the world, including were-leopards, bears, boars, seals, etc.

The traditional movie werewolf is allergic to silver and forced to change at the full moon, but there are countless variations on the theme.

In Hollow there are no hard-and-fast rules, but most Lycans are werewolves.

Playing Tips & Tricks

The first thing you should do is decide on the rules for your character.

  • What animal can they transform into?
  • Are they affected by the moon?
  • What forms can they take?
  • Do they have any allergies? (silver is traditional)
  • And so onโ€ฆ

Next you should decide what each form is like.

  • What does your character look like in each form?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?
  • Is changing forms painful or easy?
  • How long does it take?
