MUME BeorningsIn MUME, all player-controlled Beornings can shapeshift to bear form. When they find themselves in the Halls of Mandos, Beornings can choose to be transported to their village of Ingrove, in the Anduin Vale.
Bears cannot cast spells, and they have severe restrictions on what equipment they can use. On the other hand, they are definitely stronger than Men, and have greater endurance and agility; their bare paws can cause vicious damage, and they can bash their opponents with their own bulk.
Due to their fearsome appearance, bears appear as
-a Bear- to
Hobbits and non-Beorning Men (unless
they're members of the same group). For the same reason,
certain mobiles might be friendly to a Beorning in human
shape and hostile to the same Beorning in bear shape.
In order to change to bear form, use the
metamorph command (no arguments). The
outcome is not guaranteed: the chance of a successful change depends on several
factors, such as:
return to human form automatically after some time (which depends on the same factors as above). A bear can try to
returnto human form before the time limit expires; failed attempts can cause fatigue.
Beornings fight with little regard to their own life, and they're not used to wearing shields (they would prevent shapechanging). Therefore, their ability to parry enemy blows is slightly reduced (compared to other races).
Bears have access to the
forage command. When
a bear forages, they will search the surrounding area for
anything edible or drinkable water. Foraging is only possible when a Beorning
Beornings start the game with a bonus in the Wilderness skill. This bonus does not make practicing wilderness less effective.
Beornings are empowered by the presence of powerful, friendly bears.
