I was an inexperienced cleric in the old times… Then I caught lycanthrophy.

Now that I'm a werewolf and humans are food to me, can I use the cantrip Purify Food and Drink to purify humans?

At least the skill "Control Shape" is based on Wisdom. Good thing for your cleric! –  LitheOhm Aug 19 '12 at 3:09
This question raises interesting questions about the effects of cannabalism on spellcasting. –  GMJoe Aug 20 '12 at 7:25

Sure, once they're dead and just another kind of meat. Note that a human casting purify food and drink on live food animals doesn't work either.

Seems like lycanthropy is kind of a temporary thing- even if you're a werewolf, aren't you just a wolf at certain times? While you're a wolf, humans are food, and I'd say the spell works. While you're a biped, they really aren't food, so it doesn't.

And if you're a hybrid there's a fifty percent chance..? What about if they lack the feat to cast spells while not in human form? Seems to just add complication to an already complicated game. –  LitheOhm Aug 18 '12 at 2:44
