Rules of Eave: Goblins

Goblins are not like the goblins of yore.  They are about five feet tall, thin and green skinned which is impossible tough.  They are mean, vicious and bloodthirsty creatures that move in the shadows, because they have a sensitivity to light.  Singly they are sneaky but get them in a group and they are a force with which to be reckoned.

They are a very spiritual people, but they bully and cajole the spirits of Eave to do their bidding.  There are corrupted spirits, such as those in the Aragoi Wastes.  The land has not healed in the nine-hundred plus years since it was the target of nuclear attack by the ancient Tulathians.  These spirits are much sought after by the goblins as they are angry and unforgiving.  It takes a goblin much skill, cunning and provocation to cage such a spirit to use.
