The new Kickstarter for Bears Want to Kill You has already surpassed its funding requirement and is in to stretch goal territory. Next up a fold out illustration and, after that, a slipcase for the hardcover edition. If there is one thing that we DCC folks go crazy for, it is slipcases! Let’s try to make this happen!

In the meantime, we continue to build on our partnership with Axe Cop co-creator Ethan Nicolle in an effort to warn of the impending bearmageddon as well as bring nightmarish inspiration to your DCC table.

Bear Crab
“The bear crab has been scientifically proven to give more nightmares than any other creature.”
     – Dickinson Killdeer, Dickinson Killdeer’s Guide to Bears of the Apocalypse

These crustaceans are ocean dwelling in nature and are dependent on salt water to survive. Magically constructed, bear crabs have no organs but their brains, hearts and gills. They are incredibly hard to kill and are considered by some to be immortal.

Bear crab: Init +2; Atk bite +6 melee (1d10) or claw +4 melee (3d5); AC 22; HD 8d10; MV 20’; Act 2d20; SP regeneration, immune to crits; SV Fort +8, Ref +6, Will +3; AL C.

 Regeneration: The bear crab regenerates 5 hit points per round.



Bear crab (both art and concept) are the creation of Axe Cop co-creator Ethan Nicolle (@axecop) and is used with his kind permission. These, and a slew of other ursine horrors can be found in the pages of Bearmageddon as well as within Dickinson Killdeer’s Guide to Bears of the Apocalypse.
