The common Goblin warrior is proficient in the use of a spear in melee combat. Goblins seldom have the money to afford heavy armor, and are so small that stealing it is pointless. Goblins join infantry quickly, especially if promised their freedom from the slave mines. Their cowardly nature makes the "longest-spear-available," their weapon of choice, and as such they generally get preemptive striking ability in melee combat. Like all of their race, Goblin warriors are able to move easily underground and see in the darkness. Goblins are also less resistant to magic than most creatures, but have an innate resistance to poisons.
