Goblin Race [Pathfinder]
"Crazy pyromaniacs with a tendency to commit unspeakable violence,
goblins are the smallest of the goblinoid races.
While they are a fun-loving race,
their humor is often cruel and hurtful.
Adventuring goblins constantly wrestle with their darkly mischievous side in order to get along with others.
Few are truly successful."
Goblins are a race of childlike creatures with a destructive and voracious nature that makes them almost universally despised. Weak and cowardly, goblins are frequently manipulated or enslaved by stronger creatures that need destructive, disposable foot soldiers. Those goblins that rely on their own wits to survive live on the fringes of society and feed on refuse and the weaker members of more civilized races. Most other races view them as virulent parasites that have proved impossible to exterminate.
Goblins can eat nearly anything, but prefer a diet of meat and consider the flesh of humans and gnomes a rare and difficult-to-obtain delicacy. While they fear the bigger races, goblins' short memories and bottomless appetites mean they frequently go to war or execute raids against other races to sate their pernicious urges and fill their vast larders.
Goblins chew and goblins bite .
Goblins cut and goblins fight
Stab the dog and cut the horse,
Goblins eat and take by force!
Goblins race and goblins jump.
Goblins slash and goblins bump.
Burn the skin and mash the head,
Goblins here and you be dead!
Chase the baby, catch the pup.
Bonk the head to shut it up.
Bones be cracked, flesh be stewed,
We be goblins! You be food!
—Traditional Goblin Warchant
Goblins are short, ugly humanoids that stand just over 3 feet tall. Their
scrawny bodies are topped with over-sized and usually hairless heads with massive ears and beady red or occasionally yellow eyes. Goblins' skin tone varies based on the surrounding environment; common skin tones include green, gray, and blue, though black and even pale white goblins have been sighted.
Their voracious appetites are served well by their huge mouths filled with jagged teeth.
