Originally posted on The Second Hand Took:

Good Morning All! I hope you are all doing well and have had a chance to play a game or two coming off of the Holidays. As some of you may or may not have noticed the Hero of the Month for January is Beorn! So far there’s only been two articles posted, one going a little in depth into Beorn and his pros and cons, and another covering a deck list I came up with a few days ago. This article however, is a bit special, as we get to get some insight into everyone’s favorite skin-changer from the big bear himself. Beorn, over at the appropriately named Hall of Beorn, was very generous and took some time out of his day taking care of animals and tending to his garden to answer a few questions. Enjoy!
