Hellfrost: The Long Night
Beastmen are a mix between humans and animals. Most are humanoid, but have the feet, heads, and hair/fur of animals. A few have tails. Beastmen are usually found far from civilized lands, as they are universally despised for their destructive, rapacious nature. Tribal in nature, beastmen are usually ruled by the smartest or strongest member of their tribe. It is extremely rare for beastmen of different species to join forces.
Discussions as to how beastmen came to be are popular in roadside taverns, and most folk have an opinion. Some blame wayward wizards for trying to create their own race. Others insist beastmen are victims of a divine curse. A few claim they are natural beings, in the same way as humans, elves, and the other civilized races. A small number hint that they are the unholy creation of loose women who slept with animals.
