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, our savage Spellbook series continues with bite of the werewolf, the third of five new spells designed to lend heroes ferocious abilities when they're most needed.
