Description

Goblyns are small, green-skinned and vile creatures, who would sooner cut you open and watch your blood run than look at you. And even then, one might glare at you while the other slits your throat. They are chaotic, cunning, and tricksy as hell. Never trust one...unless of course you be a Grik, den yooz may trust all Goblynz. We not hurt yooz, we prah-mis. *sly grin*

Goblyns always cover their elbows and knees, and usually wear some tattered collection of clothing and shineys scavenged from their victims. They tend to gather in tribes, but will often strike out in groups comprised of representatives of many tribes called Skrylls. The first historic Skryll is the object of many stories and is called the Trim Skarim. Goblyn stories often detail them outsmarting the lesser gods and races.
