Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: The fluff for this races traits is confusing and is integrated poorly enough that it is difficult to distinguish mechanic from fluff. Unconditional advantage needs to be made conditional and Maul can already be done normally without a specific trait stating you can do it. In addition, there are a number of minor issues like grammar, wording and the missing of SRD references here.

"They have such small rounded ears on top of their heads..." The hunter chuckled. He has finally tracked down a rare Kumakin cub, as he pulls his bow back he hears a twig snap behind him, he doesn't have time to turn around. "Every little cub, has its mother's teeth to protect it." -Buckthorn Orchis Kumakin Historian

Physical Description[edit]

Kumakin are humanoid creatures with the features of a bear, with the dexterity to wield weapons in the rare situations that call for it. Their ears and tail can be any color from dark brown to white and in some circumstances have even been seen in gold. Kumakin have been recorded to stand 7 feet all the way up to 11 feet and can weigh in excess of 550 lbs. Their eyes carry a veracious predatory stare that can shake the nerves of even the most tranquil monk.


The kumakin's earlier in their history were more open towards other creatures, willing to trade and socialize, however as wars with between religious factions tore nations apart kumakin refused to fight for any side, stoically remaining neutral in any wars that proceeded. This let to the Kumakin race developing a disdain for any kind of religion, and their generally desire to be left alone. They have continued to migrate further and further away from any kind of civilization as generations pass, living in some of the most exotic and hard to reach places imaginable. Kumakin have been found in all kinds of environments, because of this you can never quite know when you could walk into kumakin territory. There have even been recordings of Kumakin turning up in snow, rain forest and deserts.


Kumakin are almost entirely family sustained, with only a few cases of 2 or 3 tribes working together to survive, particular harsh winters. Kumakin are a completely atheist race, choosing to celebrate feats of strength and intelligence of local heroes, rather then gods that they can't see or trust. They do however breed for life and are very loyal and protective of their significant other. Kumakin generally only socialize with local tribes and others it has grown up with, it is not unheard of for not only outsiders but also other kumakin to be completely torn to shreds when entering territory. Kumakin however can be exiled from their tribe, this is uncommon but not unheard of, in these rare situations kumakin have been known to try to socialize with other humanoid creatures particularly minotaurs, bearon and lionfolk.
