Bestial Creature (CR +0)

Lost Treasures pg. 17
Acquired/Inherited Template Acquired
Simple Template Yes
Usable with Summons No

Bestial is an acquired simple template that can be applied to any humanoid that doesn't possess the wild empathy class feature. Humanoids afflicted with this template gain traits of a random wild animal from the waist up, appearing much like a lycanthrope in hybrid form. Common animal forms include those of bears, boars, rats, weasels, and wolves.

Humanoids with the bestial simple template are resilient and develop rudimentary natural attacks, but the transformation dulls the mind and imparts a brutish demeanor.

Rebuild Rules: AC increase natural armor by 1; Attacks gain 2 claw attacks and 1 bite attack (all primary natural attacks), which deal damage as though the creature were one size category smaller (see Table 3–1); Ability Scores +2 Con, –2 Int, –2 Cha
