Breeds

Goblin Breeds

In the distant past, goblins had pure-bred clans, with their own distinct physical traits and culture. Since the construction of Gobopolis, however, breeds have been mixing freely for generations. It’s now almost completely random whether a new-born gob will resemble hir parents in any way.

Skin Color
Skin color is a common status symbol in Gobopolis; the trick is that the skin color which is currently a ticket to popularity may be out of fashion next month…or five minutes from now.

1-2: Dark green, grey blotches – an old classic.
3: Dark grey, green blotches – not every gob’s color, but good if you know how to use it.
4: Light green – at least you’ll be easy to find in a dark room!
5: Neutral grey – yaaaawn.
6: Brown – just what you’d expect from mixing all those colors.
Critical: Brown with green and grey blotches – well, hellOO Mr. Fancy Pants!
