    Aye, at least for such creatures that have free will and are not intrinsically evil.

    And that page is hilarious -- and so sadly true. I've had my fair share of players who go around killing goblin noncombatants for **** and giggles. Some of the players, to their credit looked a damn sight uncomfortable while their peers were at it.

    I like Goblins, and Orcs. If they're going to be an evil race, they should at least have some level of dignity. And be able to kill some Elves and Dwarves.

    If you really need things to be evil, those particular green skinned people are jerks, but other tribes might drop the weapons if the adventurers attempt diplomacy (being so used to getting attacked by the pinkies).

    They missed these goblins.

    Anyway, at this point, I don't think we need a Goblin defense fund as much as we need an Azurian defense fund.

    Impressive, I must applaud the creator's of that site.

    Personally I don't mind the filth and the smell, the texture of the soft flesh and the crunchy bones more than makes up for that. If they had been a tad more colourful they would make a perfect meal.

    I love the comparison of combat tactics...

    "The concept of a fair fight is meaningless in their society. They favor ambushes, overwhelming odds, dirty tricks, and any other edge they can devise . . . goblins have a poor grasp of strategy and are cowardly by nature, tending to flee the field if a battle turns against them.”



    “Elves are cautious warriors . . . maximizing their advantage by using ambushes, snipers, and camouflage. They prefer to fire from cover and retreat before they are found, repeating this maneuver until all of their enemies are dead.”


    Its amazing, now that you look at it, how one can basicly take the exact same tactic, write it two different ways, and make one sound like cowardly swine, and the other to be graceful, tactical warriors...

    But in the early versions of D&D, Goblins were never green. They were dull yellow or red. So, it was probably more of a "It's not a playable race! Kill it!" mentality.

    They are still yellow and red (though the stickverse gobbos are green).

    Goblins would be a better player race than tieflings. Less inclination for evil. Maybe they'll make it into the 4th edition PHB.

    Well, your efforts while noble are futile I'm afraid, unless you also petition to give goblins black skin and white hair. Or otherwise shiny/angsty characteristics.

    How much gold would it take to treat a few million goblins to a dye job? I fear you may be right, but we'll see.

    confused Re: The Goblin Defense Fund

    But goblins have green skin and fangs. And they're listed as evil. Doesn't this mean that the gods in their infinite wisdom created goblins purely for young adventurers to kill for experience so that they can become sufficiently skilled to fight the true enemies of all that is lawful and good, such as demons?

    Well, but of course if goblins became too rare or were considered too weak, said adventurers would not get sufficient experience and we'd have to hold off the legions of hell with +1 BAB and one daily casting of Cure Light Wounds or Magic Missile. We need goblins around to keep us strong. *signs*
