    History
    Spoiler
    Show
    Werewolves were great wolves bred by Sauron for his master Morgoth. He corrupted wolves and twisted them into a more human shape. He then summoned fell spirits, and merged them into the wolves, giving them an evil intelligence. The majority of these powerful canines lived in Tol-in-Gaurhoth, or “Isle of the Werewolves.” In the War of Wrath that ended the First Age, all of Beleriand was sunk under the sea, including Tol-in-Gaurhoth. Thus ended the greatest wolves to ever inhabit Middle-Earth.


    Campaign Notes (War of the Ring)
    Spoiler
    Show
    Werewolves have been extinct for over four thousand years. Many believe that the Wargs are the descendents of Werewolves. They were his failed attempt at breeding them back into existence.


    A large creature appears out of the darkness. It has the form of a wolf, but it’s shape is greater and more man-like. An evil spark of intelligence can be seen in its red eyes.

    *Werewolves from Tolkien's books are not shapechangers.

    I'm not sure if the CR is right, any help would be appreciated.

    What is the "ancient evil" subtype?

    Debby
    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Oh forgot to mention that. Ancient Evil is merely a subtype given to rare creatures bred by Morgoth during the First Age (and the SUnless Ages before that. Basically all it does is give them damage reduction except against old Beleriand-aged weapons.
