Multibear

Possibly the greatest and most feared of all bears, the multibear is a gentle soul unless provoked. Multibears appear to be enormous dire bears, but they gain additional arms and heads as they age, gaining as many as six heads by the end of their lives.

Multibears can live for thousands of years, and just like dragons are usually content to spend long periods of time ‘hibernating’, leaving their lairs only when hunting for food, and even that infrequently. Like dragons, multibears are also solitary and shrewd, making powerful allies or terrible enemies for those lesser beings that catch their attention.

Despite living in caves, multibears are often fond of the pleasures of humanoid civilization, often taking interest in music and books. Those wishing to approach a multibear safely would do well to bring a bard or a gift to smooth negotiations.

Multibears possess the following traits unless otherwise noted:

  • Claws and Bites: Multibears begin with 3 claw attacks and two bite attacks (three arms and two heads). They gain an additional arm and head, with the subsequent claw and bite attacks, for every age category they advance.
  • Bear Casting: A multibear is considered a High-Caster, but can only cast the Bear sphere and have no casting tradition. They gain a spell pool as normal for a High-Caster, and use Wisdom as their casting modifier. Like all casters, a multibear begins with two magic talents, which must be chosen from the Bear sphere. A multibear is always considered to be channeling a bear spirit, but any bearacteristics with a duration that normally lasts until the end of a bear spirit instead have a duration of 1 minute per caster level.
  • Blended Training: Multibears gain the Behemoth combat tradition. They gain an additional talent for every Hit Die they possess.
