Sphere Lore (Beings from the Spheres)
- QL 1: Most beastingers have the shape of otters, squirrels, or birds.
- QL 2: They are playful and like to prank humans. They can cast spells, but only rarely use them. Often they behave like normal animals, to blend in.
- QL 3+: There are beastingers shaped like wolves and boars, but these large versions are warriors and guards in the fairy realm and not as harmless as their smaller cousins.
Cute: Beastingers are very cute. To attack a beastinger without reason, heroes must make a Willpower check with a penalty of 3.
Beastinger Shape: The stats given are an example for otter or squirrel beastingers. Other types of animals have different stats. Large beastingers, such as wolves and boars, have very different stats. They do not need sustenance in the human sense, though some have a liking for carrots, nuts, cookies, or other treats. Others collect favored items, which they carry around or hoard. Objects commonly gathered include soft human hair for a sleeping nest, shiny jewelry, or items of a size suitable to the beastinger’s human shape (such as an epee found in a marmot’s nest).
Fairy Rules: Beastingers use the general rules for fairies.
