"Goblins are vile, nasty creatures, short in stature and almost rodent-like in their frenzy to feed. Very stupid but dangerous to the inexperienced."

Goblins are yellow colored, little and imbecile creatures who inhabit dungeons and use axes of their own stature to fight. Goblins may appear weak on the first sight, however they can also be deadly enemies to inexperienced explorers.

Goblins are one of the first enemies to appear in the game, being opponents in the Imperial Dungeons.

With the gain of experience by the Eternal Champion, Goblins stop being a dangerous creature and become insignificant.

Goblins are encountered mainly in dungeons, however they can also appear at night outside and inside cities.
