Taller than hobgoblins, the spindly, green-skinned goblins are about the height of a man or elf (though usually hunched), since they were created in mockery of the elves. Their noses and ears are extremely long and pointed, and they have sharp senses of smell and hearing to make up for their weak eyesight and sensitive eyes.
Quick and agile, goblins are masterful climbers, preferring to dwell in dark parts of the forest or in caves. Like hobgoblins, they can often be quite clever and set up elaborate traps, though they lack the hobgoblins' industrious nature and penchant for cooperation. The only time they cooperate is when hunting in packs. They prefer stealth attacks and stabbing or ranged weapons, and are master bowmakers.
