Here There Be Gerblinsedit | hide | edit source

In Klarg's first appearance, he is the chief bugbear of a gerblin cave stronghold. The adventurers pay him a visit after his underling, Yeemick, makes a deal for them to kill Klarg in exchange for Barry Bluejeans's freedom. Instead of killing Klarg, however, they decide to try negotiating with him by leveraging the news of Yeemick's scheme.

Klarg owns a wolf named Percival, who attacks Merle.

In their first meeting, Taako casts Charm Person on Klarg. Even in his charmed state, Klarg believes Yeemick to be innocent and summons him to the office in the hopes of fixing the 'misunderstanding.' After Yeemick attempts to shoot Klarg with his shortbow, Klarg kills him in one hit with a morning star.

Klarg awards the adventurers a small jade frog statuette (worth 40 gold), treasure equal to 24 gold, 2 potions of healing, and aromatic oolong tea that levels up the group to level 2. He also tells them the fate of Gundren Rockseeker, whom he admits having sold to the Black Spider. The group leaves him behind in the cave, still charmed, until the enchantment seemingly lifts after an hour.[1]

Petals To The Metaledit | hide | edit source

During their infiltration of the Hammerhead Gang, the Tres Horny Boys come across a group of gang members torturing a large chained figure whose face is completely enclosed in a metal mask.[2] The figure turns out to be Klarg, who recognizes the THB and reacts aggressively. Once freed, he escapes on a battlewagon, telling the boys it will be bad for them if he ever sees them again.[3]

Klarg reappears mid battlewagon race, where he rescues Taako from diving off the back of a wagon.[4] He is strangely polite, despite his hostility at their last encounter. He turns out to still be under the effects of Taako's charm spell, which should have worn off long ago. He assists in the race by directing one of the pylon blasts towards the Hammerhead shark tank, killing everyone inside except Maarvey.[5]

The Crystal Kingdomedit | hide | edit source

Aboard Lucas's floating laboratory, the players discover a family of bugbears (or as NO-3113 calls them, "hugbears") that serve as Lucas's caretakers and janitorial staff. They appear to be charmed much like Klarg was, due to aggression inhibitor chips implanted in their brains by Lucas. The bugbears reveal that Klarg was once one of them, serving as Lucas's personal butler under the name Daniel Butler. He escaped after his inhibitor was disabled during a fight with his sister. When Taako charmed Klarg, it interefered with the effects of the inhibitor, causing the spell to have an indefinite periodic effect.[6]

Klarg wrestles as Moonbeam in Chaos Stadium. His entrance is theatrical: first there appears a projection of two floating moons and a projection of a man transforming into a werewolf in the moonlight. His outfit is a black spandex onesie emblazoned with a crescent moon and silver trim and a luchador mask that doesn't quite hide his facial fur.[7]
