The Bear! can reached from waking the Sleeping Beast Inside The Cave, from waking the Sleeping Bear, from being targeted with the Bear in a Filled Pocket Ball (with a 4-5 turn delayed queued), from being the target in The Bear Is Loose! Fixed Chance Phase event (with a 2-4 turn delayed queue), from being targeted in a The Bear! subevent (with a 2-5 turn delayed queued), or from being targeted in The Addicted Bear! (with a ? turn delayed queued). It cannot simply be a random event.


In the event, you can choose to run away or use an item or skill against the Bear.


Unless an option is chosen where the Bear is killed, or an option is chosen where the player can directly choose a player to send the Bear after or a direction to send the Bear, the Bear will randomly choose a direction to go in, and if any other players are in that direction (with the space where the player in the event is as the start), a random other player in that direction is chosen for which The Bear! is queued. The same occurs in the specified direction for subevents where the player can choose the direction the Bear goes.


If the player would move backward "the standard amount of spaces" (20-30 spaces) from an option in The Bear!, they only move 25% of the spaces if they have the Bear Behavior feat. Bear Behavior can also affect usage of the Whip.


Attempting to run while Dead simply makes you leave the event.


If you are a Druid currently in Bear Form when the event would begin, unless you have Jinxed Jewel Of Impotence, the event is replaced by Bear On Bear Action, in which you have sex and receive the Skip-A-Turn status, and the event ends without any of the below options available.


All items used are lost unless specified otherwise below.
