The Middle Isles
The debate still continues in the hallways of Rynn as to whether or not Goblins are a civilized people. Certainly in the natural state, clothed in rags, preying in swarms on whatever is too weak to stand against them, respecting only brute force, creating no histories or plays, Goblins would appear to be beyond redemption. It was the opinion of Hegros, Philsopher-Prince of Decenios, however, that they could be brought to at least a semblance of civilization. Whether or not this is mere aping remains to be seen. These small creatures, with skins of mottled green and unkempt features, live scarce more than 20 years in the wild.
