The Realm of the Black Bear dominates all the woodland and forest areas on the continent. This is their home and playground, and to desecrate it is to summon the wrath of The Black Bear. Therefore, the members of The Black Bear must hold a certain spirituality about the land and the wilderness. The amount of spirituality found is up to the member to decide. The member can choose to live with the savage mentality of kill or be killed, by dominating the land, or learn to coexist peacefully with the wildlife by taking only what is needed to survive.
The symbol of The Black Bear, the bear claw, is closely connected with nature. It represents a bond with the bear and the environment in which it roams and rules. While it is a symbol of authority, strength, power, and aggressiveness, it is also a symbol of wisdom, respect, order, and tranquillity.
The Realm of the Black Bear was formed by a nomadic band of Rangers and Clerics. They advocated the union of wilderness survival and worship. During the period of 435-439 HE, they roamed the wilderness, sometimes staking out for themselves and occupying unclaimed territories. In the year 439 HE, they established the permanent home of The Realm of the Black Bear in the western mountains of the northern plains.
The members of the Black Bear believe everything on the land, in the water, and in the sky has a guardian spirit guiding them. In order to worship, they must find their own guardian spirit by participating in a vision session.
The Bear guild accept Dwarf, Elf, Half-Elf, Human, and Orc races, including Artificer, Cleric, Fighter, Jaochi, Mage, Ranger, and Shapeshifter classes. SK members are accepted.
