Goblinoids are a savage variety of humanoid commonly found in lawless and marginal territories. Goblinoid society has yet to progress beyond the level of hunter gatherer tribalism and, as a result, goblinoids resort to raiding other humanoid settlements to fulfill their desire for commodity goods and slaves. The constant threat of gobliniod violence is said by scholars to have been the impetus for the formation of the first human kingdoms.
Goblinoids are not a single species, but rather several different but related species of varying body mass. Goblinoid tribes can consist of either a single species or a mix of species. In mixed species tribes, the largest species invariably dominates those that are smaller.
Little is known about the origin of goblinoids, but goblinoid art universally depicts their ancestors riding to Iriel on a rock from the sky.
