Thanks Patraw.I was actually inspired by African and Ancient Greek folklore,and the Were-Hyena is well known in the folklore of many African countries and they were also very popular in ancient Greek folklore as well(just as popular as the Werewolves,they also wrote about mixed packs of Were-beasts,made up of Were-Hyenas and Were-wolves).I first heard about Were-Hyenas in a book about Monsters I used to have as a kid(in the late 70's or early 80's),it had a great section on Were-wolves and they told about how in the folklore of Various places around the world they have different types of Were-Creatures besides Were-wolves(like Were-Hyenas,Were-Lions,and Were-Leopards in Africa and in Asia they have Were-Tigers,Were-Crocodiles and Were-Bears).I'm not sure but I think the Gnolls in D&D are kind of based on Were-Hyena folklore,actually now that you mention them(I read a bit about them while I was working on my Were-Hyena)and I might make a custom Gnoll in the future,I think that might be fun to do.

Looks pretty good--is this based on anything (Gnolls/Flinds from Dungeons & Dragons perhaps) or just something you came up with?
