Heartaches 23: Bugbear Voodoo

7 Comments

Checking out the term “Bugbear” came up with mostly goblin-like creatures. I prefer your design better;)


That kind of bugbear is from fantasy RPG games, especially D&D and a lot of older tabletop games. They’re ridiculously weak, though. My thief in Dragon Quest took down one a roll. X3 Kory’s critters are infinitely cooler.


I suppose I’m quite late with this, but for future reference: my googling revealed that Kory’s bugbears are based on a vague and obscure myth similar to the bogeyman. Supposedly they’re giant bears who live in the woods and sneak into town at night to eat naughty children.
