Hobgoblins are burly humanoids standing roughly 6 1/2 feet tall. Their hairy hides range in coloration from dark reddish-brown to dark gray, with dark or red-orange skin. Large males have blue or red noses. Their eyes are yellowish or dark brown, while their teeth are yellow. Their weaponry is generally kept polished and in good repair.

Hobgoblins are larger cousins of goblins. They are far more aggressive and organized than their smaller relatives and wage a perpetual war with other humanoids, particularly elves.

These creatures have a strong grasp of strategy and tactics and are capable of carrying out sophisicated battle plans. Under the leadership of a skilled strategist or tactician, their discipline can prove a deciding factor. They hate elves and typically attack them in preference to other opponents.

Hobgoblins are a military breed. They live for war and believe strongly in strength and martial prowess as the most desirable qualities for individuals and leaders alike. Hobgoblins are often leaders among tribes of goblins and orcs, whom they bully and treat as inferiors. Hobgoblin mercenaries sometimes enter the service of wealthy evil humanoids.

Hobgoblins are aware other races tend to think them stupid and slow brutes akin to orcs. They'll gleefully use this tactical mis-perception to their advantage.
