Fine Young Women Who Kill People
Shifters are hairy Humans. They inhabit similar areas to Elves but they live at ground level in well-disguised burrows or huts. Both Shifters and Elves are so good at camouflage that many months may pass before either tribe learns the other is living on its doorstep.
Like Tieflings and Orcs, Shifters are nomadic hunter-gatherers, preferring fresh meat and fruits to fat farm geese. If they steal your livestock it’s probably coz they’ve run out of wild creatures (or they’re trying to piss you off.)
Shifter colonies are very rare in Dirt so rare that some people even think they’re extinct. This could partially be because they’re so good at hiding that they’re only seen when they want to be, or it could be because they look pretty much the same as Humans. The true wildness of the Shifter comes during battle, when the Shifter transforms into a monsterous, beast-like form. Unlike werewolves, Shifters can willingly transform anytime, anywhere – not just at full moon.
