9 – Goblins and Beer

Goblins and beer, what a winning combination.

And now, in a continuing service, an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia.


Goblins are crafty, vicious little runts (that seem to speak with a variety of British accents for some reason) that like to think that they are the movers and shakers of the world below. Sometimes they’re right, most of the time they’re not. Goblins have non-prehensile tails, pointed ears and fins that run from their foreheads down the back of their heads. The fins serve no purpose whatsoever, as far as anyone can tell. They don’t use any sort of recognizable magic, leaning instead on a practice called T’knawl’g, that yields unpredictable results. For all their nastiness, they have stable home lives (well, most of ’em) and are pretty decent ballroom dancers. Don’t ask how we know. We just do.

Also, for everyone coming on over here from Grimmwold, thanks a bunch! I’ve read the comments left on the forums there and I really appreciate ’em. You guys rock.:)

See you on Wednesday!
