The Kindred of the Wretched
Goblins are nasty and war-like hominids, standing several feet shorter than humans (45 to 50 inches tall), weighing anywhere from 100 to 130 pounds, and with lanky, disproportionate arms. They are mostly hairless and have sharp teeth and pronounced canines; a long, pointed nose; large yellow eyes; and tapering ears. Their skin is either forest green in color or dark-brownish red (some so dark as to appear a blackish red) in color (red and green goblins are distinct sub-races). There has been some debate as to whether or not goblins are actually hominids or an entirely separate species, as they cannot cross-breed with humans—not that anyone has ever tried.
“Dark” goblins (bearing the brownish red color) are mostly concentrated in northern Tarrona, in the Dark Kingdoms (the Grand Imperium), and in the Frozen North. Green goblins (also called forest goblins or woodland goblins) can be found in the forest lands of Tarrona and in all regions of Celaphania and Relania—especially the Azanian Jungle. Goblins are considered a nuisance and a threat to civilization in all regions of the world except the Dark Kingdoms, where they have been enslaved by the Ogrim and Scaithi. Goblins are now used as “cannon-fodder” troops to help fuel the war machine of the Grand Imperium.
