A Goblin’s Life
Splug was born in the Cairngorm Peaks, the third son of the his tribe’s thane. As most goblins, he never was much of a fighter but excelled as a thief from an early age. After getting caught stealing too many times, he quickly realized conning others was as profitable as thievery and that he had a knack for it too. So his youth passed, hustling fellow goblins, orcs and other creatures who dwelled in the mountain range, ocassionaly raiding the roads, working as a scout or stripping ancient nerathian tombs of its treasures.
But, as he reached adulthood, BloodyAxe defeated Splug’s older brothers and father in combat and took control of the Bloodyfool tribe. Through his new chieftain, Splug’s fate got entangled with that of the cleric Leralak, his crazy cult and the Keep on the Shadowfell. Over three years our mischievous goblin spent digging in the keep, perhaps tricking too many goblins out of ale rations. When BloodyAxe was defeated by a band of adventurers, Fat Valor took his place and Splug could not help but break into his new boss’ secret stash. The day after that he was captured and thrown to jail, but no lock can keep this goblin imprisoned and as fast as he got in, he got out. That same night he escaped, following the King’s Road to the south. He spent a couple of months in the infamous village of Nulb. After obtaining quite a reputation for himself, he left hoping to form a gang and start a road-raiding business near Wintershard, which flourishing comerce made ventures such as that quite profitable.
But while sleeping in the open, in the northern border of the Greenmantle Forest, he was captured by Ninaran, a former lieutenant of Leralak’s. The young yet cunnning elf put a magic circlet around Splug’s neck with which she keeps finding him every time he escapes her sight. Last night Splug ran away again, deep into the forest’s heart. Morning has come and he keeps fleeing, not knowing a fantastic and perilous adventure awaits him.
Splug is a con artist. He usually portrays himself as a pathetic, helpless figure but he is also a pathological liar. He begs for freedom and behaves like a sniveling servant yet he is clever and treacherous, always plotting and thinking new ways of getting other people’s stuff into his backpack.
As most goblin warriors, he will flee battle given the chance and cares little for his companios welfare. Goblin tactics have a new meaning in Splug’s maneuvers, this goblin has his way around the battlefield, dodging attacks, performing acrobatic stunts, flanking enemies and dealing tremendous damage with his kukri.
Although he pays his respects occasionally, he is not driven by any religious thought and follows Bane because the cruel god of war favors goblins.
Mannerisms and Appearance
This small, ill-tempered goblin can have a comic appearance. Although most goblins are wicked creatures who hate adventurers, Splug is dressed like one: humancrafted leather armor for mobility, nongoblin equipment and weapons, including a kukri, several shurikens and a couple of magic potions.
Splug is very well mannered but lets out a grunt now and then, specially when displeased. Most races find goblins as gruesome and disgusting creatures but as far as goblins go, he is quite handsome and he’s even been known to take a bath, occasionally.
