Playing a Twilight Goblin
Because Twilight Goblins usually worship evil deities they are often disliked by members of other races. They only worship these deities because they represent things that come from nature like, death, and venom. They love simple pleasures such as dancing, playing, and music. They also are a bit like hobbits in that they all love food, and pipes.

Twilight Goblin Adventurers
Three sample Twilight Goblin adventurers are described below.
Todesser is a sorcerer, he was raised by goblins, always wondering why he had a different color skin, but when he learned that this tribe of goblins killed his parents, he went on a rampage and killed them all. He is not proud of what he did and exiled himself to a small hut in the middle of the woods.
Lachen is a bard. She is one of the few Twilight Goblins who doesn't worship evil deities, she actually worships no deity.
Überbringer der Liebe is a ranger. Even as a child, he felt an incredible wanderlust. Eventually, he left home, fighting for himself, battling deadly monsters of the wilderness. He has fallen in with a group of adventurers, and he has sworn to defend them until the end. The group was distrustful of him at first, but they now recognize him as a devoted ally and deadly adversary.
