Publication history

David C. Sutherland III, the artist who painted the covers of the first edition Monster Manual and Dungeon Master's Guide, created the modern-day wemic for a game product called Monster Cards Set 3, a first edition Dungeons and Dragons supplement released in 1982.[1] The wemic then appeared in first edition in the original Monster Manual II (1983).[2]

The wemic appeared in second edition for the Forgotten Realms setting in the Monstrous Compendium Forgotten Realms Appendix (1989),[3] and reprinted in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[4] The wemic was further detailed in Dragon #157 (May 1990).[5] The wemic is presented as a player character race in The Complete Book of Humanoids (1993),[6] and is later presented as a playable character race again in Player's Option: Skills & Powers (1995).[7]

The wemic appeared in third edition for the Forgotten Realms setting in Monsters of Faerûn (2001),[8] and as a player character race in Races of Faerûn (2003).[9]

Description

Wemics are larger and stronger than humans; a wemic can leap up to 50 feet with a running start. Their front claws are sharp, and they can fight with both claws and weapons at the same time. The human part of a wemic has feline characteristics around his or her eyes and ears, and perhaps in the nose and teeth as well. Males are generally represented as having long mane-like hair.[citation needed]
