The Gob Squad
Slinking in the dark, eating all your food, and serving the mysterious desires of the darker being of the Feywild
Kraf was born on the edges of the known world; some would say it was a little past those edges. His clan lives close to the boundaries of a weak spot in the reality of the world: a portal to the Feywild. Whenever a goblin child is born in the village, the parents await with fear for the arrival of a large, white raven. If the raven perches on the hut during the birth of the goblin child, that child is taken into the woods the next day and left there. No goblin that has not been taken knows what happens, other than the goblin child left behind is taken into the Feywild to be used by the darker beings that reside there. Some of the goblin children return, but many do not. When Kraf was born, not a single white raven perched above the entry to his parents hut – thirteen white ravens perched all over the roof of the hut. Immediately after his birth, Kraf was taken and left in the woods. He has recently returned to his clan, 15 years later, trained in the dark arts of stealth and assassination by the dark denizens of the Feywild, whom he now serves. He took what he needed from his clan without a single word to the other goblins there. He has now set off for more civilized lands in order to infiltrate the forces of the Black Dragon in order to gather information for his masters. Why the information is needed and what the rest of his mission will entail is a mystery, even to him.
