Hruggek (pronounced: /ˈhrʌgɛkHRUG-ek[13]) was the chief deity of bugbears, and was the god of ambush, violence, and combat.[2][8][10][12] At one time he was an exarch of the greater god Bane.[3] Other gods worshiped by the bugbears included Grankhul, the god of hunting, senses, and surprise; and Skiggaret, the god of fear.

Prior to relocating to Banehold, Hruggek lived in a large cave in Pandemonium called Hruggekolohk. His home was adorned with the severed heads of his defeated opponents.[12]

DescriptionEdit

Hruggek appeared as a massive, powerful bugbear, 12 ft (3.7 m) tall. He had great fangs and clawed hands and feet, and wielded a 10-foot long morningstar.[12]

WorshipersEdit

Clergy and templesEdit

Hruggek's priests dressed in black and wore skulls on their heads. He was worshiped on the full moon in bugbear cave halls. Bugbears sacrificed the blood of their enemies to Hruggek every month.[12]

Shamans of Hruggek could achieve the ability to cast up to 5th level divine spells.[12]

NotesEdit

  1. The Complete Divine sourcebook lists Hruggek's domains as Knowledge, Law, and Magic, which is surely a misprint for a Chaotic Evil deity, but it was not corrected in the errata. The domains listed here are from the Monster Manual 3.5 errata.

Creative OriginsEdit

Hruggek was created by James M. Ward for the Deities and Demigods Cyclopedia (1980).
