Fig P1.11 Black Bear

Black bears in D&D are the smallest category of bear, used to represent black bears and other small, temperate-habitat varieties.

Physical AppearanceEdit

The fur of these bears can be pitch black to light brown, and is sometimes, depending on the species, adorned with colorful yellow or orange spots, especially on the chest.


Less aggressive than the larger species of bear, and quite intelligent, black bears tend to be the most commonly domesticated breed. They live in warmer climates, but still can't tolerate the warmth of the tropics.
