Where did the idols come from...?

I honestly think he just made them up on his own. I mean, I doubt there’s any kind of previous “Were-Canada” tombs of knowledge lying around. 

As for knowledge into the transformation, I remember hearing on stream how for this update they wanted to approach Woodie like the other full-moon transformations, thus the whole monster meat thing.

From this, we can determine that whatever gave the pigs their curse, probably gave Woodie his as well.

Maxwell gave him the beaver,Charlie(Bad)the Goose,Charlie(good)then the Moose .Maxwell realised what the *blep* was going on and helped him control it.

 

Makes sense. Moosegoose came around when Reign of Giants came around. The three transformations are kind of a callback to the DLC.

new buff are now given to woodie, in an attempt to calm down the forums: woodie can now tame the moosegoose, and ride it.

Make the weregoose a steed so it's a alternative boat.:wilson_ecstatic:

maybe he just suddenly thought "what will happen if i make this meat into idols, eh?"

That explains the purple gunk in the idols...

That's basically what I was hoping for in the rework video. Where did he get these powers from?

Yeah, from what the Wilson and Winona shorts explained, you need to trade something to enter the Constant.

My first thought on hearing about the idols before the update was some association with the idols used with the Celestial Portal. Doubly so since his curse reacts to the Moon.
Now...yea, beats me.

maxwell's quote on the werebeaver totem states as that "he's learning to control the curse" this means it's is own doing same with warly's quote

by using this we can deduce that woodie learned this probably with the abilities he learnt as he was surviving the constant and that the short was still in the constant not inside the real world

Headcanon: Before he was lured by Maxwell Woodie was cursed by a Native American Canadian tribe because he well was cutting all trees. In the Constant the "curse" has awaken. Woodie somehow learned to choose a specific transormation by creating vessels for an animal spirit he can consume and let them enter his body, triggering the curse.

Now if a Woodie short can find a connection between that tribe and the voxola factory, I'd appreciate that.

Too bad Klei showed a showcase for his new abilities. It was a good animation but I was expecting something else because every character rework should come with a "glimpse of their background". I got the feel they missed the point of Woodie's short. :( So we have more room for our theories.
