Hobgoblins are taller and broader than goblins, similar in size to humans. They often have a red or brownish hue to their skin.

Hobgoblins are also more intelligent and are capable of crafting and manufacturing goods, including the smithing of weapons and armour.

It is rumoured that they once had an empire that rivaled any human, elf, or dwarf nation – but that it fell to infighting and bickering.

It is not unusual for a hobgoblin or group of hobgoblins to rule over their goblin and bugbear kin.
