Hobgoblins, in general, are not a pleasant people. They fight, they eat, they war, and they capture. Sometimes they capture slaves for themselves. From the inevitable coupling of a hobgoblin who has earned himself enough status and his slave births the half-hobgoblin.

Physical Description[edit]

Half-humans of this sort usually stand proudly at about the same height as a tall human, and shorter than an average hobgoblin, which to their rigid society means a lot. They are bulky and low of excess fat. Their jawline is less pronounced than the purebloods of their kin, and they have much thinner fur.


Given the strict nature of hobgoblins in general, half-hobgoblins tend to be on the outskirts of their society, rejected if not simply killed outright by their kin. This may mean that they try their hardest to fit in and exemplify what they can in hobgoblin society, or that they may resent them for treating them so poorly.

Hobgoblins raised by humans are treated in the same way, usually, because they are seen as a threat, or unnatural. The effect this may have on the half-hobgoblin varies greatly, depending on the society it occurs in.


Hobgoblins that try to overcome their differences from their pureblood kin are usually Lawful Evil to best fit in, while those that rebel and flee can gravitate towards Chaotic Good to be as opposed as possible to the society they came from.

Racial Traits[edit]

  • +2 Constitution, -2 Wisdom: The human blood mixes with the hobgoblin blood in strange ways, causing them to be slow of mind, and slow of body.
