"Grrrr... who dares disturb my SLUMBER!?" - Quote from wild Bearfolk man

Physical Description[edit]

Bearfolk appear at first as normal black bears, scavenging for food. But, when examined closer, you notice the flair of intelligence in their large, black eyes. They usually have black or brown fur, but rarely they can have cinnamon, dusky tan or even white. They can walk on all fours like their animal cousins, but they consider it too low for their abilities.


 Nobody really knows how the Bearfolk came into being.  Some say that a group of bears bathed in a magical spring that gave them intelligence and they populated, some say they simply came into being, appearing out of nothing, others say that they were victims of a cruel experiment that turned them into blood-thirsting monsters designed to kill all living things.


Bearfolk Names[edit]

Bearfolk use names punctuated by growls and grunts inaudible by humanoids, so they use Common words to describe their habits or mannerisms. They have no difference between Male and Female names.

Names: Graruuk (Tree-breaker), Hrekor (Honey-seeker), Reerok (Meat-killer)
