Hobgoblins of the Broken World

Most populous within the lands of True Maryx and Maryx, the Hobgoblins are a hardy race of guerrilla warriors and assassins, honed with centuries of warfare and the struggles of survival. The Hobgoblins were affected by the breaking mostly through the repercussions to other races. Maryx and the Hordelands were ravaged to a lesser extent than other locations, but the new political landscap allowed them to seize new lands, only to in some ways lose them again due to the rise of the Maenad's psions and thrallherders. The true free Hobgoblins have carved out a smaller land of True Maryx, a land at constant struggle against Maryx.
Physically, Hobgoblins are slightly taller than the average human, but have a stooped appearance that makes them of equivalent height. Their skin colours vary, from a dusky brown, to a sickly green, to a bluish grey, and gangrenous yellows. They have pointed ears, and slight lower tusks that can protrude from their mouths in some members of their race.
Culturally, Hobgoblins are a militaristic and focused people. The idea of idleness offends them, and toil and training are seen as virtues. Luck is also seen as weakness, and any warrior or commander that relies on it rather than careful planning and tactics is seen as a fool, no matter their successes. Success is applauded, and failure is not lamented if it was caused by external forces. To the Hobgoblins, a "failure" who toils for success is superior to a "Hero" that blindly succeeds.

Psionics was an alien concept to the Hobgoblins for so long, but recently they have begun to embrace its effectiveness and utility. Many Psychic warriors now fight in their War-bands and armies, and lately a small number of vitalists have begun to be trained by a disaffected member of the Collective.
