The Reign of Darkness
Hobgoblins are the most civilized of the goblin race, sometimes building small settlements and fortresses that rival those of human construction. Hobgoblins are more industrious than goblins and bugbears, tending to rise above and rule over their more brutish cousins unless severely outnumbered.
Hobgoblins live for war and bloodshed, killing or enslaving creatures weaker than themselves. More aggressive and organized than their goblin or bugbear cousins, they form martial societies and see all other creatures as lesser beings to be subjugated – but reserve a special loathing for all fey, especially elves and eladrin.
