His coming was foreseen by the Mayans who prophesied the time of his arrival but neither the place nor the form he would take. He arrived in the north-woods of Wisconsin and took the form of a bear, great and terrible, to exact judgement upon humanity.
Fortunately for mankind he was discovered by the purple garbed warrior-priestesses known as the Mid-State Sisters of Skate before his rampage began. They were able to bind him with powerful magicks to temporarily prevent mankind’s ruin. They knew that their spells would not contain him indefinitely so they sought aid from their allies, the Green Bay Smackers.
The Smackers’ seers and warlocks knew that there was only one way to avert an ursine apocalypse. They had to periodically unleash him in controlled bouts of ritualized combat to appease his thirst for violence or his rage would build and he would break his mystical bonds, an outcome that could not be allowed.
To this day brave teams of warrior-wizards from throughout the Middle West make their way to Wisconsin to do ritualized battle with the Smackers. Their efforts help delay the arrival of the end times and appease this mighty beast who has come to be known as BEARMAGEDDON.
