The Glowing Goblin
This strange creature, who has earned his name from the lurid
golden glow that emanates from his equally-golden skin, has
long been the subject of many legends throughout the
North Broadlands .
Most accounts feature the sinister goblin as a master thief
who steals valuable treasures and hoards them away in his
secret lair. He most often appears in large cities.
Others believe that the Glowing Goblin is an agent in the employ
of some greater and far more sinister figure.
The few times that either adventurers or city guardsmen have caught
up with the foul creature, have ended with the goblin escaping...often after
slaying one or more of his pursuers.
The renowned adventurer, Tallys , claims to have
defeated the Glowing Goblin in the city of Trithik more than twenty years
ago. Tallys recalls that the goblin's body vanished after it was slain
and that in its place he found three strange silver coins, each bearing
an engraving of a snarling goblin's head.
Tallys's account has led to widespread speculation that the goblin is
not a creature of this world.
