Goblins are believed to be evil and are described as troublemakers. They are treated as tricksters and outlanders. Some say, "They are malevolent demons, dangerous to humans." Luckily, we live with Maple Forest Goblins. They are a little bit sweeter.
We know that Goblins are mischievous on a good day, but there are good and bad, as in any race. You will love how they help with the composting and the recycling. Faeries may wake the flowers in the Spring, but the Goblins put them to bed at Autumn's end.
Goblins are always being blamed for a pixie's prank or human's lack of personal responsibility. If you will take the time to look and get to know them, you might just make some new friends.
Anyone who brings home this book will be in big trouble. Renowned artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have conducted a thorough investigation into the goblin realm. (For the uninformed, goblins, a subspecies of faery, are those maleficent creatures that cause all manner of havoc in the human realm.) The fruit of their labor, however, turned out to be a rotten apple: the book is infected with goblins.
Now, thanks largely to Froud and Berk's continuing carelessness, the noxious, viscid, and largely nonsensical volume has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Among its pages are reproductions of the ancient, odoriferous Codex Goblinensis; a glossary of common goblins and their markings; and a gazetteer of goblin photographs taken with the arcane Goblin Camera. Those fearing an infestation can refer to the section detailing how to determine if you've "got goblins" and, if so, what you can do about it.
Combining the folkloric approach of Faeries with the utter wackiness of Lady Cottington, this is the team's most visually rich and outrageous opus yet.
The Goblin Defense Fund was an organization dedicated to defending the rights of the Goblin race. They have fallen by the wayside, but we have pledged our selves to their goals:
To achieve full social and descriptive rights for goblins. We demand an end to implications that goblins are stupid, filthy, cruel, torturers and ugly slave-takers. This bilious slander could not be further from the truth.
To achieve full game-mechanical rights for goblins (and, to a lesser extent, their ‘monstrous’ humanoid brethren.) No longer shall goblins, orcs, gnolls, and other races be saddled with -2 to Charisma scores and lousy racial bonuses.
To end the use of goblins as ‘cannon fodder’ in modules for low-level, incompetent adventurers. To the extent that goblins are used as opponents, they should be described and played as being no less ruthless or clever than the murderous thugs invading their homes.
To inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination.
Goblins - Life Through Their Eyes is a Dungeons & Dragons webcomic written and illustrated by Tarol "Thunt" Hunt. It is set in a humorously stereotypical fantasy setting, and follows the lives of a party of goblin adventurers who started as monsters and declared themselves player characters until the creator went crazy and forgot the title was GOBLINS!
Farlaine the Goblin - A tree goblin shaman from the Forest of Fin-Din, has spent years wandering the very many Oddlands of Wug(hundreds!) in search of a forest to call his own.
