Rise of the Runelords
As goblins venture out further into the world, they often have a need for new words to convey things they don’t exist natively in their culture.
DM’s Note: Goblinoid is based off German. It is NOT German so spellings and grammar may vary. Goblinoid, especially as spoken by goblins is meant to sound clipped and rushed and a tad nasal. Bugbears and hobgoblins speak more evenly and rounded by comparison, though bugbears have a raspier, throaty way of speaking.
