Marjack

In the beginning of things, there was only Chaos; From Chaos Marjack awoke himself and created Order. Marjack then created the other gods, to act as his children. After a time, the gods came together and decided to create a world; Together they planned it and crafted the world upon which we live. The gods celebrated their creation with drink and feast until all of them, even Marjack, grew weary and took to slumber.

Marjack, greatest of the Gods, awoke first and looked out upon the world. He decided it needed beings to live upon it and know its splendour; So he took a bit of the spark he'd granted each god and then mixed it with his own essence to make his chosen children, the Bugbear.

The other gods saw the Bugbear upon the world when they awoke, and each grew jealous of the feat, so they stole away each in turn and attempted to duplicate their perfection; But each god used only their own power, and could create only lesser forms. And so it came to be that other races inhabited the world, each an imperfect reflection of the Bugbear. So all the races now existed upon the face of the world, but as they had no place to call their own they began to fight and make war for what could have been many years or only many days as time is weird for gods, and though each race fought with vigour and brutality the Bugbear proved strongest and most ferocious of them all.

The other gods feared for their beloved creations and came to Marjack and pleaded that there needed to be defined homelands, if only to stop the wars, and so that every race would have a place they always belonged. So Marjack in his wisdom decided there would be a contest amongst the gods themselves: They would throw stones upon the world, and where their stone landed, their creatures would hold dominion. The gods rejoiced and the night before the contest they had another celebration to rival that of the night the world was made, but as the other gods drank and sang and ate Marjack stood outside and threw stones, to practice. He practised until he could hit EXACTLY what he aimed at, every time, and then he slept.

When the morning came the gods drew lots to determine the order in which they would go, then the competition began. The Human gods threw their stones and struck the area that allowed their children to live where they pleased, the Dwarven gods struck the mountains of stone, and the contest continued so forth until there remained only the god of Elves and Marjack himself. Only two homelands remained, the lush forests and the barren deserts. Marjack had drawn before the Eleven god, and so made his way to cast his stone with confidence.

The elven god knew their creation had been made frail, the desert would surely break them, and so they concocted a scheme to ensure their pale creations survival. In the moment before Marjack loosed his stone, the god of Elves cast a glamour over his eyes, so that he saw the Desert where the forest had once been and the Forest where the Desert should be. Having practised all that time, Marjack hit his mark expertly.

As the stone landed, the glamour broke, and Marjack saw where he had thrown his stone. So great was his rage that the heavens themselves shook, and so great was his bond with the Bugbear that they were forever touched by his fury. Marjack declared then that ever would there be a hatred of elves in the hearts of the Bugbear, and as a lesson for his treachery Marjack grabbed the Elven god and carved his ears into knives so that all might forever know the pointed hearts of elves.



God and Creator of Bugbears, God of War, Father and Creator of all other Gods.

It is rumoured that Marjack also created the Hat Trolls, though if you ask any they will deny it. Still, the Bugbear regard the Hat Trolls with an uneasy acceptance, like when dad moves away and has that other family that you don't really talk about often.
