A land on the edge of war. An adventure waiting to happen. It has come to the priesthoods attention that we as humans are a blessed race. It is us that the angels have appeared before. Us that the mountains move and earth quivers in the path of our conquest. How much greater would our Great country be if we removed that which tarnished us. It is time to take out that which the Gods disdain. Once the Land is purified Our blessings shall flow fourth in bounty. Great rains and Fertile soil for the farmers, Great wealth for the adventurer, bounty for the fisherman. Everything that we want the Gods hand will give us.
I write this letter as a call to arms. I will gather the solders and we shall march forward through the mountains and dark forest, through fields of wolves and towers of magic, and in our path shall lay a better future for man.
Head Master of the Priest hood.

Vampires are quick, deadly predators of the night. They are allergic to the sun and only come out once it has gone down.

First another trigger might set the wolf off like any strong emotion, then later the wolf can come and go as it wants. When a werewolf gets older something called The Rage happens to him. It is named that because the person could go off at any moment. The werewolf becomes a wolf more and more often until he can no longer change back into a man again. Werewolves look like large versions of wolves when they change, and act just like wolves.
There are two clans of werewolves the fang and and The changed. The Changed live in a small village by themselves and try to live human lives. They see this as a curse. Their forbidden from ever leaving the village for the safety of the world around them. Anyone who comes into their village is either chased out very quickly or killed. When The rage hits these werewolves the leader kills them.
