"Wolfen" image from Heavy Metal magazine

“Wolfen” image from Heavy Metal magazine

I’ve loved the image of the wolfen from the classic old school Palladium Fantasy RPG. In said game they were also way too powerful, being Large size as well as having better stats than humans for just about everything, all supposedly balanced out by their roleplaying restrictions (in that everyone hates the wolfen except other wolfen).

Step them down to regular size and stats and suddenly we have a character I can get behind (I’ve seen way too many wolfen wielding longbows for that 3d6 damage per arrow…)

Something like that image above, from a 1979 issue of Heavy Metal magazine
