Haha, That's no ordinary Teddy bear for it is the Teddy bear of DOOM! (It can be thrown ??" or used in melee, 2D10 damage due to massive bite attack and if hit, not killed but hit then the target becomes undead). It also returns to it's owner. Or something like that.
Crabs?.. hmm, or, syphilis!?. That's why they're mad.
@IVHorseman: You can make and break alliances any which way you want but the alliances you start out with you must keep. It's a scenario thing more than a game mechanic.
