Arctic goblins are feared and reviled because their appearance heralds theft, assaults, and property damage. They survive by moving from place to place, constantly driven out of their previous homes by irate neighbors.
Arctic goblins take up adventuring for many reasons. While most goblins are neutral evil, many have different beliefs and seek like-minded individuals outside the tribe. Some just want an opportunity to settle down and work to earn a better reputation than that of their fellows.
