The unforgiving northern reaches of the Freljord are home to the Ursine, a fierce and warlike race that has endured the barren tundra for thousands of years. Their leader is a furious adversary who commands the force of lightning to strike fear within his foes: Volibear. Both a warrior and a mystic, Volibear seeks to defend the ancient ways and the warrior spirit of his tribe.

弗雷尔卓德北部贫瘠的荒原是凶暴好战的熊族的家园,他们已经顽强地在这片荒芜的苔原上生活了数千年。他们的首领叫做沃利贝尔,他是一个可怕的对手,他能够操控狂怒的雷电之力来点燃对手内心的恐惧。他既是战士,也是法师,他想要捍卫他部族中古老传承的战士之魂。

 

Though history recorded their once legendary feats in battle, the Ursine now lived in tranquil seclusion. The warriors were headed by a triumvirate of leaders who maintained a long-lived isolation, avoiding the petty affairs and conflicts of others. As shaman to the three, Volibear was a respected sage known for his insight. It was an era of unprecedented peace, but Volibear felt dread stirring within him. Prosperity was turning the tribe soft and weak, and many had long forgotten the sacred art of war. In time, Volibear felt the fire of their souls would be extinguished. When he revealed his misgivings to the triumvirate, they refused to listen and warned him to know his place.

尽管他们传奇的战斗技艺曾经载入史册,现在的熊族生活在与世隔绝的平静之中。在三名执政官的领导之下,战士们在很长时间内都远离俗世,避免与人争斗。作为三名执政官的萨满,受人尊敬的熊族智者沃利贝尔因为他对未来的洞察力而广为人知。尽管生活在无与伦比的和平之中,沃利贝尔却感受到心中的恐惧在燃烧。和平繁荣的生活让熊族战士们变得软弱,他们中的许多人(熊- -)已经忘记了神圣的战斗艺术。那时,沃利贝尔感到部族的生命之火正在熄灭。但当他向三位执政官说明他的不安之时,他们却拒绝听从他的建言,还警告他少管闲事。

 

Seeking wisdom, Volibear undertook a perilous climb to the peak of the Ursine's sacred mountain, a place forever shrouded in a thundering maelstrom. The eye of the storm was said to bestow portents, and legend held that the tempest would mark the next great chieftain of the tribe. As Volibear ascended the peak, he was struck by an unnatural bolt of lightning. When the shaman awoke, he was possessed by a horrific vision of the Freljord utterly consumed by darkness. Volibear saw an unprepared and complacent Ursine force slaughtered by terrible creatures of ice. In an instant, he knew his race would perish if they did not prepare for war.

为了寻找智慧,沃利贝尔攀登了危险的熊族圣山,这座圣山常年被雷云风暴所包围。传说风暴之眼可以预示未来,并且指出熊族的下一任大酋长。当沃利贝尔爬到峰顶的时候,他被一道不同寻常的雷电所击中。而当他从眩晕中醒来,他就被预言图景中完全被黑暗所吞噬的弗雷尔卓德夺去了全副心神。在这图景中,他还看到了安于现状毫无防备的熊族被冰怪们无情地杀戮的惨状。在那瞬间,他就明白了,如果熊族不为战争作出准备,就会被历史的长河所淹没。

 

Volibear rushed down the mountainside to recount what he had seen, but found the path blocked by three Ursine - the triumvirate. Knowing he would end the lasting peace, they refused to heed Volibear's warning and demanded his silence, by his word - or his death. Resolute and adamant, Volibear swore that the Ursine's very survival depended on his message, and launched into ferocious combat against the three. A terrible clash ensued, and just as Volibear succumbed to his opponents, he called upon the power of the maelstrom. Unleashing raw lightning, he struck the trio down with a thunderous blow. Stunned and astonished, the triumvirate beheld the sign of Ursine leadership: the force of the sacred storm.

沃利贝尔急着冲下山坡向族人叙说他的发现,却被熊族三执政官挡住了路。他们无视了沃利贝尔的警告,认为这会毁掉熊族的平静生活。他们要求沃利贝尔不得提起此事,发誓,或者死。但沃利贝尔已经下定决心,他坚定地认为熊族的存亡系于这条信息,于是,他和三名执政官进行了残酷的战斗。就在沃利贝尔行将失败之时,他召唤了雷云之力,放出了狂暴的闪电,以雷霆一击打倒了三名执政官。执政官们大惊,因为他们认出了熊族族长的象征:神圣雷电之力。

 

Recognizing his foretold ascendance, the triumvirate appointed Volibear as the Ursine's new leader. His influence was swift and decisive: he roused his tribe from complacency, revived their battle-hardened traditions, and allied with Sejuani, the warrior who would fight with them against the coming evil. With time, the tribe grew lean and fierce, becoming known again as fearsome warriors of legend. Volibear and the Ursine now stand ready for the dark day that looms on the icy horizon.

三位执政官承认了沃利贝尔的族长身份与预言,并推举他成为熊族的新领袖。他迅速做出了决断:他结束了部落的和平,唤起了他们的战斗传统,并和瑟庄妮联盟以对抗即将到来的恶魔。随时间的推移,熊族变得凶狠强大,再次成为了传说中可怕的战士。现在,沃利贝尔和熊族已经为冰原地平线上隐隐迫近的黑暗之日做好了准备。

 

"The Ursine cannot know peace without war."

“不经战争,熊族怎能和平。”
