The witches of the howling moon consists mostly of Lorelei, though there is usually a single Craft of the Wise witch within’ their ranks at any given time. There is even a couple Faerie witches within’ their ranks. Their home base is in a secret cabin located deep in the woods outside the city of Dole in the County of Burgundy.

They are devoted mostly to the principles of the Lorelei, plus with the added philosophy by moonlight.

Total Members: 6 + 1d8 Lorelei, 1d4 Faerie Witches, 1d3 Craft of the Wise

General Alignment: No restrictions to Alignment.

Requirements for Membership: Members of this coven are usually sought out by the current traveling members and brought back to their base during their annual Faunae Festival, where they are granted membership.

Sabbats and Rituals: Each full moon the Witches of the Howling Moon must sing a special song. The song resembles the wolves cry to the moon. Also, the first full moon of winter is the Faunae Festival, where the members of the coven meet, new members are recruited, and a nightlong celebration occurs.

Common Traits: Most Witches of the Hollowing Moon take the Astromancy feat at first level, providing a bonus to her spells on the full moon. Knowledge: Astronomy also is not uncommon. An NPC Witch of the Howling Moon has a 30% chance to be a lycanthrope of some kind.

Ardaynes and Principles: ·Centuries have passed, and the goddess has given us as intelligent creatures the gift of song, and this must be respected at all times. Once every full moon, she calls out to all of her creatures, and it is important that we call back, for the goddess wants to hear the songs she has granted us the ability to create·. Venerate the moon and the darkness that surrounds it.

Granted Power (not received without the greater divine dominion feat): Once per day, you can rebuke lycanthropes as an evil cleric rebukes undead. Use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
