Goblin history is rich with folklore and tall tales, starting from hobgoblin invasions of old to the story of a young goblin once rode a chicken into an orc camp. However, it’s also riddled with tales of subjugation and powerlessness as, thanks to their small size, they’re frequently bullied into the service of other malevolent creatures. This history of groveling makes goblins dream of gaining power and strength of their own, which sometimes draws them to adventure.

Goblin names aren’t given at birth because the average goblin anticipation is extremely short and that they believe giving a reputation to be a waste. Instead, they assign them numbers until, if the goblin is lucky or resourceful enough, they reach the age of maturity (usually after 4 years). These names are given by the Mob Boss and named goblins gain great respect among their comrades. If a goblin does something incredibly daring (or stupid) and gains renown, he can also tend a title describing the deed.

Some goblins believe reincarnation, which makes them even more dangerous than normal Goblins, as, without the fear of death, they need no qualms dying or sacrificing other goblins for the greater (their own) good.

Goblins board loose clans ruled by a frontrunner they ask as a Mob Boss. Evil goblin societies frequently war against their neighbors, if not plan to annoy them. More peaceable goblins, who are fewer and much between, like better to play practical jokes on neighbors, which sometimes are often even as bad as if that they had declared war.
