Bugbears still live in the the lonely mountains north of the elven jungle, improving their lives with agriculture and woodwork. Some joined the humans on their travel back to the winter pines to engage in war with the minotaurs. A few of the more enlightened ones went with those humans who set up monasteries in the mountains of the enchanted forest, studying philosophy or faith. Yet more work as mercenaries in Manxiga, muscle for hire, and focused mainly on health. Some have since returned to their mountain homes with weapons, and spent time perfecting different fighting styles, becoming the first kensai, known as the Rong (“Weapons”). Literacy is of use to the monastic groups of the north, while wanders tend to prefer leatherworking. If they are of a religious bent, they tend towards worshipping Carna, goddess of creation.
