Mac The Werewolf. Shortly before sunrise I made my patrol around the streets of Drachental. I never been a good sleeper, maybe it is because there always many things on my mind. My neighbor's houses where very quiet, they must have been all still asleep. When i passed our workshop i heard a noise coming from the west. It came from Miners Heaven. A friend of me lives there. Mac was a beggar that lives on donations of the kind people in Sosaria. He did not use the gold for his own but to use to rebuild this old Gothic building into a place where miners that worked the surrounding mountains could drink,eat and sleep. The rebuilding is slow because Mac want to do everything himself. I heard another growling sound and i draw my sword and ran to Miners Heaven. I saw a huge beast coming from the inside. I heard about these mythical creatures before. Lycans,better known as werewolf's! I stood there face to face with the beast. I was worried about Mac. If Mac was home and this beast found him he would not had a chance against it. "FOOD!" I was surprised that this creature could talk. "FRARC FOOD!" Did he just see me as food? And how did he know my name? "NO HURT!" The werewolf looked at my sword like it was trying to tell me he did not wanted to fight. Often i can feel the evil karma from creatures and people but this one gave me no sense of any bad intension's. I sheathed my sword to try to show i was not here to harm him. Then i asked him where Mac was. "MAC INSIDE! HURT!" Was Mac still inside the house and was injured? I had trouble understanding the Lycan. Then the sun started to rise above the mountains A new day was coming. The werewolf started to growl again and fell to the ground. I could not believe my eyes what transformation i saw. The werewolf changed back to his human form. It was Mac! Quickly i picked up Mac from the ground and carried him inside the Miners Heaven. I went behind the bar and took one of this self made bottles of liquor and gave it to him. "Good stuff!" Mac said to me. I could not believe Mac was this werewolf. "I am sorry i did not tell you about this when we met Frarc. But i wanted to hide my secret for everyone. I use to be a paladin working for a secret society that deals with strange creature. Last year around Halloween things went wrong. The society wanted that i dealt with these wolfs that where living in a cave in the forest near the Shrine of Sacrifice. I thought i could do this alone but when i arrived near the wolfs lair i was attacked from the back by a giant wolf-like creature on two legs. Before i could kill the creature it bit me in the arm! Several days later my wound was already cured. But the nights where hard on me. I kept having nightmares on the fight with the wolf-like creature. Then on a night with a full moon i could not sleep, i felt a lot of pain in my body. The only thing i remember of that night was the hunger for food. The day after i found myself naked in the forest near the Shrine of Sacrifice. I went back to the society house library and went to search in some old books. After some time i found that the bite of the wolf creature gave me Lycanthropy. I became something i been hunting for years. Man during the day, beast at night. I had to leave the society , if they knew what i became they would hunt me. The hunter became the hunted , my paladin days are over. I must learn to control this beast inside me. I left first to Empath Abbey to buy me several monk robes. I know my clothing is shredded when i change into this beast and these cheap robes can help me. I heard the news about a town called Drachental, where its peaceful and friendly people lived. There i would restart my new life , trying to help other people but hide who i really am and life like a beggar,hidden from the world. So now Frarc, you now know my secret and i beg you not to tell anyone." I told Mac i would not reveal his secret and promised him that my friends and allies will help to find a cure for his decease. He smiled to me and asked what he could do in return. I asked him if he could help us against the evil that walks the lands. But he told me that since the curse he did not do any fighting anymore. He was out of shape. He took me upstairs and opened a locked closet. Beneath a pile or robes was a red metal chest. When he opened it he took out a beautiful red bone armor and a blood red scythe. He must have been a great paladin and great detective to find and kill these strange creatures over the years. We shook hands to help each other. We would help to find a cure and he would help us to help to fight against evil. But he will stay hidden as a beggar in Miners Heaven as long the society looks for him.
