Day 17: Favourite Beast

Funny story there actually. Remember back to Day 8? One of my favourite PCs was Wulfgar Tannerson. If you re-read his entry you’ll note that he lost an arm. That was because of a bear! That campaign also started with an encounter with a bear. We were all 0-level at the time so didn’t really want to tangle with it so we worked out a way to avoid a fight.
