i am trying to find out why i can place a template on an NPC but not a PC. And can this be changed so i can place a template on any one.

I can't speak for why LW might have decided not to allow templates on PCs other than in the DMG templates are described as: "modifications that can be applied to an existing monster". So, a PC isn't a monster I guess. But I guess it depends on your point of view.

That said, a trick is to hit Ctrl-K on your PC and switch it to an NPC. Apply the template and then hit Ctrl-K and change it back to a PC. *Abracadabra*, the template stays on the PC.

Some of the DMs I know that use HL won't allow a template on a PC, preferring to use adjustments and other things that can be taken away or turned off (since a template like werebear can be cured). It's a matter of preference though.

DM'ing since 1984's red box. Pretending to slay dragons for a long time before.
