The Witchfire Trilogy
There are two distinct species of goblins found in western Immoren, and attitudes toward each are markedly different. Gobbers are the most numerous of the two species and have had great success in integrating into the communities of other races,including human cities. Their small stature-most of them are around three feet tall-makes them appear non-threatening,and they have undeniable aptitude for mechanikal devices and alchemy. Next to humanity, gobbers are the race that has most successfully adapted to urban life. Inquisitive, cunning,and entrepreneurial, some gobbers have earned their place in society as owners of small businesses, often running salvage,scrap, and repair services. Less civilized tribes of gobbers with shamans and tribal chieftains still exist in the wilds, but by and large, the race has moved into the cities.
By contrast, bogrin are a largely reviled species of goblin usually only encountered in the wilds, with only a few established communities existing in human cities, such as Five Fingers. Bogrin are larger than gobbers, are recognizable by the distinct ridge on the top of their heads, and are likely to display body piercings and tattoos. They are generally considered more violent and aggressive than gobbers, and repeated conflicts have pushed them away from most townships and cities. Accordingly they encounter considerably more prejudice than their cousin race, even in cases where an individual has demonstrated a willingness to coexist in society. They are most numerous among the Scharde Islands.
