Many of you may have seen them. They’re ugly, stinky, mottled green skin creatures called the wood goblin or goblin for short. Some love them, some hate them and most of you probably see them as nothing more than a pest that has to be eliminated no matter what. In the years of research and study, I have slay countless goblins and in the process observed (in secrecy) their daily life functions as well as their crude (but functional) society.
The government system of the wood goblins, or goblins as I shall call them from now on, are centered on a paternal figure. They have a tribal society, which resembles very much the tribal government of humans 10,000 years ago. In this paternal society, female goblins have no place but is delegated to menial task of providing food, foraging, caring for the young (baby goblins are called cubs or goblings), and of course reproduction. The highest position a female goblin can attain is as the tribal chief’s wife, she holds no real power over the warriors but through her husband’s channel, and she commands respect by other member goblins of the tribe. The goblin chief usually has multiple females serving him as his mistress. The tribal chief is usually the biggest, strongest, smartest (for a goblin) and meanest (not to mention the smelliest) goblin in the tribe. Contest on tribal chieftain is settled by combat to the death. The tribal chief has absolute power over everything within the domain of his tribe. A circle of goblin shamans that he consults with quite frequently then assists him. The goblin chief usually led raiding parties which can be as large as over 100 goblins, but this is quiet rare as big armies are sometimes hard to control. The tribe's warrior class backs the chief's power. Warriors commands more respect than anyone else except for the chief and his shamans.
Since I already killed the shaman from the Cracked Wood Cave goblin tribe, I should let Barthel Gernand know that it is safe to begin building the settlement at Cropsford.
Here’s a collab shade by Dance Legend and the talented Anna Gorelova. This is (the original version of) Wood Goblin:Such a gorgeous polish! Look at that color shift! Stunning. The formula is good and easy to work with. It has a sort of velvet finish. Shown here is three thin coats with no top coat:And below is with one coat of top coat:What do you think of this one? And do you prefer it with or without top coat? I love it both ways😀
