The largest and strongest of the goblinoid races, bugbears are born for battle and mayhem. They tend to use their powerful build to enslave goblins and to bully hobgoblins into giving them gold and food in return for serving as scouts and shock troops. Bugbears make unreliable allies, but goblins and hobgoblins know the hard way how powerful a force bugbears can be.
Despite their size, bugbears move with surprising stealth, and they tend to set ambushes and flee when outmatched. They are dependable mercenaries as long as they are well paid and well fed, but they forget all allegiances when their lives are on the line.
Unlike other goblinoids, bugbears worship Hruggek, a lesser god from the plane of Acheron. They organize into loose warbands, each led by its fiercest member. Bugbears believe that when they die, they have a change to fight at Hruggek's side, and they try to show their worth by defeating as many foes as possible.
