Which Goblin are you?

Goblins come in many shapes and sizes, but there are loosely defined groups among them. Some of these are characterised by different physical attributes, but more are identified by their chosen way of life.

Are you one of the Deep Dwellers who like to keep to themselves, or a Betweener who prefers to interact among others, and perhaps even venture into the human world on occasion? Every choice you make in life will impact the choices you have before you in times to come.

What role would you choose in an uncertain world where human and goblin struggle to survive? Are you the protective sort that could become one of Those Who Protect? Or an adventurer that enjoys going on raids like Those Who Provide? Perhaps you are distinctively human, possibly even a magician?

Stories of the goblin world found in Dance of the Goblins, Demoniac Dance and Power of the Dance can be found at Meat For The Storytelling.
