I have access to some neat templates in 3.5 but my party and DM wants to make some custom ones. We don't really levelup classically in our classes, but find orbs of power that enhance our "natural abilities".
One of the players wanted a wolf theme to his barbarian, so instead of a level in barbarian, he wants some sort of very light lycanthrophy. Sort of what Wolverine from X-Men is. Basically a human with wolf-like senses and instinct.
We have the freedom to choose what we like. Like this wolf barbarian wants very acute sense and some reflex bonus (he is out trap triggerer and look-out) but NOT want any combat enhances. God knows he has enough of that.
We are all civil enough to accept criticism and nerfs from each other if things get imbalanced.
We just need a set of rules for template crafting, as its not acceptable to modify pre-existing templates. Found some unofficial ideas but we would like either official ones or something really balanced.
