Grizzly Bear

This large and powerful omnivore inhabits forested hills. While it typically sustains itself on nuts, berries, fish, and small mammals, it’s fiercely territorial and will chase off or kill any creature it views as competition. Grizzly bears are especially temperamental when their young are nearby. In combat, a grizzly bear often attempts to grab and maul its foe with surprising ferocity. It continues its assault until its foe seems like it is no longer a threat, though if the bear is hungry, it will not hesitate to feed.

Sidebar - Treasure and Rewards Bear Resources

A bear den can contain valuable treasures, such as the remains of less fortunate adventurers who stumbled into a hungry bear’s path. Bear furs themselves are valued as rugs, while their claws and fangs make for impressive jewelry or adornments for armor. Bear hide is an excellent resource for hide armor.
