Werewolf idea for Daggerheart (Feedback Please)

hi their folks, i know this probably isn’t the right place to be posting this but i am vary curios of what the community thinks of my idea of werewolves being in daggerheart, utilizing the beastform stat mechanics…so here it is!

Transformation Rules

Every night regardless of the moon phase, “Except for the full moon” you have the choice of transforming into a werewolf. if you refuse, you must give your GM something known as a frenzy token, GM’s can use a number of frenzy tokens to force a transformation very similar to fear tokens altering the narrative.

When you transform, regardless if it’s willing or not, you must make a two d12 instinct check, to see whether or not you maintain your sanity. As a narrative option you can expand half of your total maximum in hope to forgo this check, maintaining your sanity, but giving your GM a frenzy token.

If you have other narrative means that would justify a transformation, Converse with your GM to figure those out.

Example: my character has a massive fear of gore and blood, The stress and anxiety that it induces is strong enough that a change could take place. I must make an instinct check to see if I can maintain my composure.

Full Moon rules: during a full moon you are compelled by instinct to look at it, when your eyes gaze upon the full moon, it’s lunar rays force a transformation that automatically fails its check. If you have means of preventing said impulse to look at the moon or preventing a transformation, Example like poisoning yourself with a toxin that would then otherwise hinder the transformation, or protecting your eyes with black out goggles, forcing you to make a check to see whether or not your impulse is strong enough for you to remove them from your head.

If you ignore names you could use a dual ancestry from a mix of dwarf, giant, daemon, katari, charge from the firblog, nimble from simbia or danger sense from goblin depending on what you want.

A few suggestions, but I don’t have the full details on the transformation part
