Brute. A melee weapon deals on extra die of its damage when the bugbear hits with it (included in the attack).

Details

Highly trained and extremely capable, a bugbear assassin is a force to be reckoned with. While all bugbears are naturally stealthy, these individuals have honed that ability to become some of the most sought after assassins, especially among the other goblinoid races. Often found under the employment of a troop of hobgoblins, a bugbear assassin is able to dispatch even some of the most powerful foes they might encounter. This effectiveness comes at a cost, however. A bugbear assassin often asks for large payments to be made up front for it to even consider taking a job, and they are quick to betray their allies if a better offer presents itself.
