Despite a lesser measure of physical flexibility than typical goblins with whom they share an identical appearance, mobgoblins possess high density musculature and better communication skills. Although they are more gregarious and less adverse to working with others, mobgoblins usually develop those traits celebrating their frenzied feasts and destructive exploits as a culture. Being of greater average mass, mobgoblins are afforded fewer opportunities to ride the mounts preferred by their lighter kin.
