Level Up (A5E) The Lythari in A5e

Who here remembers the Lythari from 3e D&D? Lythari

After reading about the Garoul heritage in GPG #8, I think it might be possible to recreate the Lythari for Level Up: A5e. All it would take is taking up the Elven heritage and combining it with the Garoul Gift: Lupine Ascension. Think of an Elf/Garoul mix.


Some garoul are more in tune with the four-legged form of their ancestors.

Garoul with the gift of Lupine Ascension have the following trait:

Lupine Shift. You can use this trait as a bonus action to shapeshift into a wolf. When you transform, you maintain your own hit point total and your armor class becomes 10 + your Dexterity modifier. Features that allow you to add another attribute modifier to your AC, such as an adept’s Agile Defense, still apply if they do not require armor. Any equipment you are wearing or wielding merges into your new form and has no effect until you leave the form.

This transformation lasts for 1 hour, which you can extend by another hour by using another bonus action to expend another use of this feature. You can end the transformation early as a bonus action, and it also ends early if you fall unconscious . You can use this trait a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and you regain spent uses when you complete a long rest . At 10th level, your total uses equal twice your proficiency bonus.

If you gain the Wild Shape feature, this feature does not gain any of its benefits.

With regards to Culture, the Lythari could have a culture of their own or take up one of the two Garoul cultures- Blood Pack or Moonkeeper.
