Physical Description[edit]


If you are making your character a bear and don't know what they look like, you probably shouldn't be making a bear character.


They're bears. They tend to live in the woods and sleep in caves. Oh yeah, and occasionally eat people.


They tend to live alone, only staying together when they mate for a short duration. After the cubs are born, the male is forced to leave as to protect the cubs.

Bear Names[edit]

Uhhh, Teddy? Pooh? I don't know, I've never been either brave or dumb enough to go up and ask one.

Bear Traits[edit]

Literally just a bear.
Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 2 and your Strength score increases by 2 as well.
Age. Like, 20 years or something like that.
Alignment. Probably bear.
Size. Well, you're about the size of... well... a bear... which I guess is... Medium?
Speed. Your base walking speed is 25 feet. When on all 4 feet however, your base walking speed is 35.
Charge. As an action, you charge at your prey. When you take this action, you move up to 50 feet in one direction. When you hit a creature of medium size or smaller in this path, they are knocked prone, and you can proceed to make their insides their outsides, as detailed under "Bear Attack".
Bear Attack. Oh no, you've managed to make yourself a mobile meal for a bear. When someone is prone and within 5 feet of you, you can as an action, literally rip apart the victim. This kills them instantly, and literally leads to them being just a big pile of mauled guts n' stuff. Oh yeah, and you have three natural weapons you can use against your prey. Your claws, which deal 2d6 + your Strength modifier slashing damage, your teeth, which deal 2d4 + your Strength modifier piercing damage, and slamming with your weight, which deals 2d6 + your Constitution modifier bludgeoning damage. Cause you know, you're a bear.
Guts n' Stuff.. When you've managed to tear someone apart, you can consume them, and make them a meal. Tasty.
Because you're a Bear. Well, you're a bear. Congratulations. You've given up being able to use anything remotely human, meaning you can't use your hands... paws... to use weapons, or anything really other than your claws, teeth, and overall size. Oh yeah, and you can't cast magic that requires anything somatic, verbal, or component casting.
Languages. You're a bear. You can't speak anything... except maybe... bear?
