Lycanthropy may be a curse, but there's no denying the combat advantages it lends the afflicted. What if a character could experience just a taste of that power on a temporary basis? This month, we offer bite of the wereboar, the second of five new spells designed to lend heroes ferocious abilities when they're most needed.

Bite of the Wereboar
Level: Sor/Wiz 7, Drd 6
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: 1 round/level

You take on certain qualities of a boar, almost as though you were a wereboar in hybrid form (if wereboars had hybrid forms). You gain a +4 enhancement bonus to your Strength score and a +6 enhancement bonus to your Constitution score. Your face becomes that of a boar, and you can attack with your tusks if you choose, dealing 1d8 points of damage (or 1d6 points if you are Small) on a hit. You gain the benefits of the Blind-Fight feat as well, and a +8 natural armor bonus.

Material Component: Hair from a wereboar.
