Owlbears are a new designer plush project that was successfully funded via Kickstarter in Spring 2017.
Each Owlbear will be approximately 12″ tall and made of cuddly soft faux fur and minky fabric.
These adorable and cuddly soft plush Owlbears will feature embroidered symbols of spells, classes, dice, and other fun gaming and gaming-culture related items.
While many of the Paunch Patch designs are designed by us, we will also be using icons (edited and unedited) from the awesome folks at Game Icons thanks to their Creative Commons license.

We have prototypes for Fireball Owlbear and Icosa Owlbear.
Fireball’s fur and face mask will actually be an orange shade that is similar to the dark orange in the fireball embroidery.
Fireball was successfully funded during the Kickstarter. Icosa, unfortunately, was not. However, we will be doing another Kickstarter campaign to fund Icosa, Painbow, and Bag of Holding (Boh) Owlbears.
Meet the Owlbears!
The Owlbears live in the village of Game-a-lot in the magical kingdom of Hyroll. Their neighbors, the Globlins, live in the nearby forest, Fireball’s Folly, in a giant tree called Gnodise Hollow.
Fireball’s Folly was once a lush and densely packed forest of trees and lush foliage. Now there is a large area of the wood that has been razed due to an unfortunate (and accidental) forest fire.
As a result of this incident the Owlbears and the Globlins are not on the best terms. It should also be noted that the Globlins are not necessarily mean or evil but they are known across Hyroll as Minions of Mischief and Mayhem.
Simply put…they are often devious troublemakers.
The Owlbears’ leader, GM, and the Globlins’ leader, LubbDubb, are very good friends and do their best to ease the tensions between their clans. Of course, just as soon as a peace has settled between them a mischievous Globlin or two finds a way to ruin everything.
