Goblin, Hobgoblin, Bugbear, and Dakani

Goblinoids are a species of savage humanoids that share a common lineage and traits. Fecund, brutal, and selfish, the goblinoids are a plague on civilized lands. They are known to be savagely cunning, dexterous, and agile.

Goblinoid Monsters[edit | edit source]

The following creatures are considered "goblinoids":

  • Goblins, the iconic goblinoid: nasty, brutish, and short, but sneaky.
  • Hobgoblins, a militaristic goblinoid that organizes armies and fights exceptionally well.
  • Bugbears, a hulking, predatory goblinoid that delights in causing terror and fear in the beings they kill.
