Goblins have hairless, mottled green skin pulled tightly over short, skinny frames with stringy muscles, little fat, and a bulbous belly. Their faces are similarly gaunt, with skin pulled tight enough to give them eternal, toothy grins. Their eyes are black, with small glittering pinpricks at their centers. Goblins are highly adaptable, cropping up in various regions around the world, though they’re predominantly seen in the Darklands of Drohm. Everywhere they appear they hunt and raid, gaining a taste for the blood, meat, and bone of the beasts and people in the region.

There are rumors of goblins that trade with communities peacefully, asking for their dead to eat, and in exchange the living are left alone, or even protected by the goblins.

Forest Goblins. Their mottled green skin and thin, lanky limbs allow forest goblins to blend in among saplings and ground cover in forests with worrying ease. The forest goblins are a growing population in the O’koth forests but live in almost any wooded region of Azoth. Forest goblins prefer to lay traps for unsuspecting travelers, attacking them all at once with spears and swords, hoping to immediately weaken their victims and make the following fight all the easier.
