Goblins are humanoid people that resemble a combination of Nightkin and Humans. They're also shorter and stockier than Humans, and sport larger teeth. They also often any difference in eye color, usually being a dull yellow.
Goblins are great at survival, able to make any situation into an advantage. Even though they're not very good with strategy, their survivability is outmatched by none. They're also decent builders for their generally low level of intelligence. They build forts, towns in trees, and even more complicated things like pulley systems.
In their culture, the stronger Goblins become leaders, and the weaker ones do menial jobs. The leaders are usually known as Chiefs or Chieftains, and are often adorned with bones, horns, jewelery and other high-prestige items.

There are more than one kind of Goblin. In fact, there's more variants than almost any other race.
Just the average Goblin, as described above.
Large, beastly goblinoids with even less intelligence than the common variety. When used in the settlements themselves, they're often used to carry heavy objects. In combat, they're used as meatshields or as a force to crush remaining opponents.
