ORIGIN OF THE GOBLINOIDS: BY HISTORIAN DEMETRIOS
THE MONSTROUS GODS OF GOBLINKIND AND BEYOND:
NORMAL & ELDRITCH GOBLINS
Normal goblinoids are monstrous creatures with squat, hunched bodies that are covered in tough, leathery hides. Their faces are dominated by sharp, pointed teeth that jut out from their wide, gaping mouths. Their eyes are small and beady, flickering with savage intelligence. These goblinoids stand no more than three to four feet in height, but their diminutive size belies their ferocity in battle. They are known for their cunning and quick reflexes, darting in and out of combat with deadly efficiency.
In contrast, eldritch goblins are a far more terrifying sight to behold. These creatures have been horrendously mutated in different ways, often becoming twisted and malformed by dark, alien magic or their harsh environments. Some have extra limbs or eyes that bulge grotesquely from their misshapen heads. Others have tentacle-like appendages that writhe and lash out at their foes, or grotesque, mutated flesh that oozes pus and bile.
Eldritch goblins infused with alien magics are perhaps the most horrific of all. Their skin is twisted and contorted into strange, otherworldly shapes, as though it is no longer of this world. Their eyes glow with an eerie, sickly light, and they possess powers that are beyond mortal understanding.
THE HIGHER BLOOD: great goblins
Great Goblins are truly fearsome creatures to behold. They stand head and shoulders above the average goblin, with massive, hulking frames that are rippling with muscle. Their skin is tough and leathery, covered in patches of matted fur and rough scales. Huge tusks jut out from their massive jaws, dripping with saliva, and their eyes gleam with a fierce, wild intelligence.
Their arms are thick and powerful, ending in sharp claws that could tear through flesh and bone with ease. They move with a surprising agility for such massive creatures, able to bound and leap with a terrifying speed. Their voices are deep and rumbling, like the growl of an angry beast.
Great Goblins are often seen wielding massive weapons, such as enormous axes or hammers, that are as large as a normal man. With these weapons, they are capable of tearing through entire ranks of soldiers, cleaving through armor and flesh with ease.
But it is not just their size and strength that sets Great Goblins apart. They are called 'high bloods' for a reason - they are blessed by the gods of their race, given a special mark of favor that allows them to lead and conquer in the name of their kind. This mark is often seen as a glowing rune on their forehead or chest, a sign of their divine blessing.
Though Great Goblins are extremely rare, their presence is often enough to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. They are born only to non-eldritch goblins, but when they do arise, they are often seen as the chosen ones, destined to lead their people to glory and conquest. To face a Great Goblin in battle is to face a true monster, one that is capable of tearing normal men limb from limb.
