Blues are less outwardly violent than many of their comrades, but they remain reclusive, and most blues prefer to remain within their tribes, where they are usually venerated for their superior mental acuity. Blues who become adventurers have likely been exiled as "freaks" from a tribe who wasn't so accepting of the blue's mysterious powers.

Physical Description[edit]

Blues are a subrace of goblins with an innate knack for psionics. A blue is often smaller than an average goblin, standing just about 3 feet tall and weighing about 40 pounds. Blues have noticeably blue-tinged skin, and their eyes are less dull than those of a common goblin. Otherwise, they resemble their kin.

They often harbor a subconscious enmity towards plains-dwelling races who might compete with their tribes for food, such as orcs, centaurs, and wild elves; otherwise, they


Defaulting to a free-wheeling tribal lifestyle, many blues wind up chaotic. However, due in part to their increased intelligence, they are more likely than other goblinoids to bend neutral or even lawful, and have no strong inclination toward any part of the good-evil axis.


Most blues live in temperate environments, especially plains. Their lack of physical hardiness means that they're not very tolerant of extremely hot or cold environments, but they do sometimes take up residence in shallow caves and low-elevation foothills.
