Quoth the Bugbear:

“Is that the best you can do? Come on, my Grandma can do better than that and she’s been dead for 25 years. Now let’s go, you little booger, pick yourself up and try again. You can do it…”

Kith Excerpt:

Like their Goblinoid cousins, the Hobs, Nockers, Gremlins, and even the Thallain Goblins, the Bugbears are a Kith with a mission. It is their sword duty to protect a certain person, place, or thing that has great importance to the Dreaming. These wards vary from Bugbear to Bugbear. It could be a hidden Freehold or Glade deep in the still yet wild places. It might be a treasure waiting for the right hero to claim it. Maybe it is a childing that Dan or Destiny concludes has a great destiny ahead of her. Whatever said ward is, the Bugbears guard it with a zealous and surly nature that alienates others and even warrants the Bugbears a nasty race as a whole.

The Bugbears don’t care. They are proud of their reputation, and even prouder of their abilities. They are the biggest and tallest of the goblin-folk. For some Bugbears perhaps, this even a point of pride. Others have argued that their size gives them a considerable advantage in many areas concerning physical feats. Perhaps, then, this is all the more reason for the Bugbears to pride themselves on their talents – to prove their worth more than happenstance, but honed skill.

Perhaps then too, this is why many seek to master other areas of skill beside strength alone But is the end, less important is the pride and more the ability to perform their duty – a duty that comes before all else. Mean? Absolutely. Cocky? Sure. Eager to prove themselves superior to themselves and all others? You bet. They are also the best that the Dreaming has to offer.



“You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.”
– Marie Curie

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”
– Ernest Hemingway
