Lunamaria WP by mindflenzing Lunamaria WP by mindflenzing
This has been a prolific week for me artistically. In all likelihood you won't see me post the much new material anytime soon. This is my Urban Ranger for D&D 4E LFR. I've liked the idea since I saw it in some 3rd Ed book (possibly a Mongoose book but I can no longer recall).

I envisioned Luna as the opposite end of the Shifter spectrum from my other Longtooth Shifter character, Wolfpriest. Where Wolf worshiped the moon goddess who hates lycanthropes because her clan agreed to hunt their own kind, Luna worships the goddess of coin because her family hires themselves out as urban guides to traveling nobles and merchants. Where Wolf is a quiet, snarling beast thirsting for battle, Luna is a talkative, upbeat pup with a bit of wanderlust. Where Wolf is an animal with a human face, Luna is a person who goes through a lot of shaving razors.

I originally built her with twin bastard swords but since she's one of the two finalists for the character that I will bring in as a brand new Paragon level character in a couple of weeks I rebuilt her to wield a pair of light blades, which incidentally fits the mini I have for her already. If she does not make the cut I still have a H1 tier version of this character so I can still use what I have.

*Edit* Not only did she make it into Paragon before Pip (or I got forced into having another high level leader), but now that LFR allows non-Dark Sun themes I can make her a full blown Werewolf who gets perpetual combat advantage, does even more damage, can turn into a wolf at will and still use powers, and now moves faster than a racehorse. Sometimes I just love power creep.

Cute, I like her. I also like how you're putting out all this form fitting armor. Although the armor might get in the way of turning into the wolf form.

Anyways, maybe I will have you do some illustrations for the novel I'm working on.

Thanks. The nice thing about light armors is that they can be form fitting. As a (in her case probably less than) half-breed, her transformations are not full transformations. Shifters like her are not true lycanthropes. They can effect minor physical changes but not enough that it would change her clothing size. Think more along the lines of lesser vampires whose teeth grow and eyes change more than your traditional werewolf. Her transformation makes her do a little more damage and have a little regeneration when heavily wounded but not the full regeneration, physical enhancements, and disease spreading features of a full lycanthrope.

What are you working on?

So maybe what you were going for was a character with attributes more like Wolverine or something?

I'm working on a story that has been in my mind for years developing in secret. I said a bit about it in my journal but I can send you my notes when I get home.

Shifters may or may not be able to pass off as human depending on how many generations back the lycanthrope goes. How much of a transformation they experience also depends on that.

I saw the post after asking.

Don't all the werewolves have a humanoid form anyways?

Ah yes.

Werewolves have a human form and a beast form. Shifters are always somewhere inbetween, never becoming fully human or fully beast. Luna is always swarthy, hirsute, with long ears and teeth, and inhuman colored eyes. These features just get more distinct when she gets angry.

Hmm... That sounds like a bad deal.

They give you dhampyr as a series heritage feats then later as a race. Full vampire is a class. Longtooth and Razorclaw shifter are races but full Lycanthrope would be a class also. There are two backgrounds you can take as a shifter that state that you look like a human or elf and give you a +5 bonus to bluff checks to pass yourself off as one but otherwise people can tell that somebody peed in your gene pool.

Very pretty; love the outfit, though she screams more of an assassin to me, albeit a rather cheerful one.

Thanks. I'm curious about what elements of her design suggest assassin to you.
