Physical Qualities[edit]

Goblin are small humanoid monsters. They vary in height from about 3 to 4 ½ feet and weigh 60 to 90 pounds. They walk upright even though their arms nearly reach their knees. Their eyes vary from red to yellow and are usually dull and glazed. They have a broad nose that sits on a flat face with pointed ears and a wide mouth. Their mouth contains small, but sharp fangs. Their skin pigment ranges from a deep red through nearly any shade of orange to yellow. Members of the same tribe tend to have the same skin color.

Playing a Goblin[edit]

Goblins never make commitments. They are selfish and do what ever they can to please themselves. Goblins form tribes, each ruled by a chieftain. The chieftain is usually the strongest member of the tribe, though some chieftains rely on guile more than martial strength. Hobgoblins rule the most civilized goblin tribes, sometimes building small settlements and fortresses that rival those of human construction.
