1e: Spiderbear

The vast majority of the time, I GM my home game. However, I recently joined an OSRIC game where I’m a player. It has been quite some time since I’ve played 1e or any OSR game, and I’m rather enjoying it. But it didn’t take long for me to get the bug to create something in the system. So I decided to create something simple yet rather memorable. The spiderbear is a favorite of mine so I present it to you for your home 1e game.

Be sure to let us know if you want to see more 1e compatible monsters and more.
