Marsh Goblins[edit]


Marsh Goblins are cruel creatures. They love to torture anything smaller and weaker than themseles. They are cowardly, and soon flee when they are loosing battles. There is a strict "pecking order" within their society.

Physical Description[edit]

Marsh Goblins are about four feet in height, green and wirey. They have vicious red eyes and mottled green skin.


Marsh Goblins only get on well with other goblinoids, despising orcs (for being too strong and mean), and hate everybody else, especially dwarves. They fear elves.


Almost always chaotic evil.


Marsh goblins live only in (surprise, surprise!) marshes.


Marsh goblins have the same religion as goblins do.




Marsh Goblins aquire names in the same ways that goblins do.
