Van Richten's Treatise on Lycanthropy (Fantasy Grounds)

MOD (Virtual Tabletop)



Werebeasts beware! Van Richten's Treatise on Lycanthropy revolutionizes the werebeast's curse like never before! This massive supplement contains the following additions to gothic horror's greatest beast:

Van Richten's Notes. The supplement includes an in-game guide to lycanthropy written by the esteemed monster hunter Rudolph van Richten himself. This guide can be given directly to your players (and found by their characters) without the worry of metagaming or spoilers. Beware, however, for Van Richten is only human, and though his expertise is unparalleled, the scholar is still fallible!

New Lycanthropy Rules. Gone are the messy rules of lycanthropy. With clear instructions on how the affliction is spread and cured, and how it affects its victims, you can run the disease for both PCs and NPCs alike.

New Player Options. Was your character infected with lycanthropy or born with the affliction? With a new ancestry option, and five racial feats, you can kit out your own true lycanthrope PC.

New Werebeast Phenotypes. Face the ravenous werecrocodile or battle the dreaded werewalrus! This supplement features six new lycanthrope phenotypes, in addition to the werebat and wereraven of other official sources. Van Richten's adds werecats (lions, cheetahs, and jaguars, oh my), werecrocodiles, werefoxes, werehyenas, wereserpents, weresharks, and, of course, werewalruses.

New Werebeast Statistics. Bored of a mere werewolf? With over thirty variant statbolcks, you can hurl werewolf alphas, wererat masterminds, and more at your players. However, no werebeast is as fearsome as the apex—a lycanthrope of legendary strength and resilience, born out of dark and unnatural means. Of these terrifying beasts, the CR 15 Werewolf Apex reigns supreme.

New Items. Five new magic items and a litany of other tools that no lycanthrope hunter should leave home without!

Does this add an effect to an existing character, or does it only apply to new characters?

The adjustments needed to be made to player characters based on a lycanthropic curse/infection need to be applied manually to the character.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
