This commission is part of a series for a D&D 5th edition game set entitled Fading Embers: A Frozen Age created by Valiant Fox Gaming. Click the button below to learn more about the project and all the artists working to bring Nyth to life.

Not all breeds are equal, and among the ursine animals that survived The Great Frost, the dire bear reigns supreme.  Over 20 feet tall when standing upright, the dire bear is an animal juggernaut, every bit as strong as it appears, and much faster than humanoids would think.  Its curved foreclaws are over 8 inches longs, and equal capable of digging through frozen ground or slicing apart chainmail.
