Default Hexenwulf Belt

The Hexenwulf Belt is not a unique item, although it is not at all clear who makes them. Jordi in particular would love to know. The belt appears as a crudely made belt fashioned from wolfskin with the hair still on. The clasp is made from the bones and teeth of the wolf from which the hide came. The belt is a Relic/1 with a version of the Celestial Song of Beasts in it which only turns the user into a wolf shape. It is also a REliquary/1, and has the Feature "Can me used by mortals" Anyone who claspe the belt around their waist while it is charged with Essence will be turned into a wolf for the normal duration of the Song. The wearer will also hsuffer the effects of Murderous/3 and Angry/3 while in this shape'; Every three uses will add 1 level of one of these discords to the user permanently until they have all 6 levels.

Personally, I'd blame the Norse ethereals for most of these items: Odin is associated with wolves, berserk rage, and shape-shifting powers. Several villains in the sagas also had wolfskin cloaks which allowed them to assume the animal's form. Their curse also tempts innocent heroes to use the cloaks, which are also Addictive in game terms (besides the Murderous/Angry side effect you mentioned). Of course, a few legendary figures have betrayed and killed their friends while in wolf form; the only way to break the Addiction (though not the other Discords) is to burn the skins to ash.

I would definitely add the addictive discord to the item too based on the source material ;-)
