I know that this isnt only limited to the game ToEE, but getting into the game for the first time made me a little nostalgic, and i was reflecting on the inspiring genius of garry gygax's creation, but then i got stuck on the monster "bug bear." I've always been a little confused by this creature, i know its some kind of insect/mammal crossbreed type thing, but isnt that what an umberhulk is too? If anyone can explain to me the inspiration for, or mythology behind the bugbear race of monsters I would be extremely greatful... I'm stuck on this one because it seems to me that almost every other creature in my monstr manual has a mythological background of some kind. Did they just pull this one out of their ass? Is it some kind of joke?
