The Lair of the Werewolves is where the werewolves inhabiting the Brecilian Forest make their home.

Background Edit

Hidden by the forest itself, only those regarded as friends are allowed entrance. The Lair of the Werewolves rests in the lower levels of an ancient elven ruin, known as the Brecilian Ruins. There, the werewolves live under the guidance of the Lady of the Forest, and are helped to rediscover their humanity. They learn their names, and regain enough intelligence to carry out complicated strategies as well as any human, elf, or dwarf.

Trivia Edit

  • If you chose to side with the werewolves, the 5 werewolves that remain in the chamber of the Lady of the Forest can be killed by AOE spells, though they are now non-hostile. Amounts to a little extra experience and maybe some loot. Note that this doesn't work for the 3 werewolves in the room with the circular mosaic upstairs.
  • The werewolves, once freed, magically regain intact clothing.
