Araborian goblins

I jumped as something seemed to materialize out of mushroom. A strange human-like creature with skin, the color of mushrooms and a tail that looked like someone had stretched its flesh slowly approached me: a mushroom goblin.
-An Araborean explores account of an encounter with Araborean goblins

Araborian goblins are the goblins of Araborea. They have adapted to the world, and lived there since it was created. They have developed strange warps, and are sometimes called warped goblins. Every year on Hunger Day , the god, qwalor, eat half of them, which is a major reason why they have not spread over araborea.    
We crept through the fungal underbrush, energy rifles in hand, towards the cliff's edge. Below they could see a scattered group of squat figures. They milled around the clearing, hissing at each other, I let Henst take the first shot.

After Hunger Day, the goblins that want to be the leaders go through a two phase compitition. Each goblin chooses 65 willing goblins to be part of there team. The first phase is where the goblins go into the wilds for a week. Then they come back and have a fight.
