    Default Goblin-Kin Shaman & War-Giant [D&D 3.5+ Monster Classes, P.E.A.C.H.]

    Inspired by the Improved Monster Classes thread started by Oslecamo, I have unbuilt and rebuilt the War-Troll and Ogre Mage as prestige classes. My intention is to offer the '---- Mage' an 'War-----' for any Goblinoid, Monstrous Humanoid, or Giant racial class, or race and class. I have decided to call these Goblin-Kin Shaman and War-Giant.
