Bearfolk are, as the name suggests, a race of humanoid bears native to the Northlands in the setting of Midgard for Pathfinder 1st edition and Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. These towering ursine humanoids are renown for their strong family bonds, which form the cornerstone of their tribal culture, and their deep connection to nature. Their culture upholds honesty, trust, hard work and community as the highest of virtues, and their elders rule with an almost sacred authority. But they are also notorious for their passionate natures, with violent tendencies in particular ever-bubbling beneath the surface, making bearfolk potentially quite unpredictably violent.
