Faunae

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an animal? To howl at the moon as a wolf, to roam the woods as a bear, to scale the trees as a squirrel, or even to cut through the waves as an otter? And not any ordinary animal either, but one from the beloved fables of the Grimm brothers, for example. Although you retain a normal animal appearance, you can be smart, conniving, just, ruthless, resourceful, and whatever the animals were portrayed as in these tales.

Excerpt: 

The creatures in this game are mostly like the animals of our world, but they do have some distinctive qualities. They are roughly as intelligent as humans, so they can communicate with languages, use tools etc. As a general rule, the animal's characteristic values determine his or her physical appearance. For example, the higher the animal's dexterity value, the more his hands resemble those of a human's (with thumbs situated opposite other fingers).
