Magus Sym, the Bear

Sym is an NPC created for an Ars Magica game which stopped a little while ago. The output is from Meta-Creator so is a little idiosyncratic at times, but far better than writing the entire stat blocks by hand.

Sym’s stats could be used for any Bjornaer recently out of apprenticeship, with a focus on dangerously good mundane melee combat.
