Playing an Red Goblin
The red goblin tribes are rarely seen outside of their hidden villages mainly because other races immediately attack them due to their more common kin wreaking havoc all the time and giving goblin kind a bad reputation as thieves and bandits. They value family highly and view their entire tribe as family, not just their parents and siblings as other races do. They have a tradition deeply rooted in shamanic beliefs of balance and honor. Heritage is important as they will never forget their past but have tried to turn away from the cutthroat tendencies associated with their kind by becoming passive towards most races. Young ones are raised to be respectful to others, and are raised around beasts so as to better understand them. They try to maintain a balanced existence with nature, never hunting or taking more than they need to survive and are taught to disable traps and mechanisms in case they fall victim to a trap. Adults male and female share the various roles within the tribe no task is gender specific. Males learn to cook, sew and other jobs generally done by females while females learn to fight, hunt and other jobs generally done by males. And due to their longer arms and shamanic past they are all trained to use the long spear which many prefer as their weapon of choice. Red goblins seek to make peace with the other races, when a red goblin becomes an adventurer they travel abroad seeking fame, glory, and most of all acceptance from, the other races that despise them.
