Toon Tuesday: Gripbark the Furbolg Fighter (Warcraft)

I genuinely loved Furbolgs, and the questing zones which featured them in World of Warcraft, so I thought I would write one up. I was fairly upset that [Dartol’s Rod of Transformation] was Alliance only, too. I waffled over the Fighter and Healer, but finally opted for the preferred class of the race. There’s a pun hidden in here. I’m not sorry.

Game: White Wolf Publishing’s Warcraft RPG
Books Needed: Warcraft RPG Core Book First Edition, Manual of Monsters (pages 45-47), Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook 3.5.
Recommended Setting: Any climate, though they prefer forested areas and temperate regions. Northrend is home to many Furbolgs as well, and would be suitable. Most suited to a neutral campaign, perhaps which features her preferred races heavily.


Furbolgs do not typically wear much armour, preferring the toughness of their own hide for protection; what they may wear is piecemeal-type hide armour.
