Jungle Goblins Edit
If monkeys were evil and could speak, they'd be a lot like jungle goblins.
Jungle goblins are territorial, tree-dwelling savages with a sadistic streak a mile wide. Their skills at climbing and moving from tree to tree, combined with their cunning and vicious nature, cause even other goblinoids to respect them.
Jungle goblins generally take up adventuring to gain personal power and serve their ambitions within their clans, or because they somehow lack the evil nature of the rest of their kind.

If it chooses an accelerated climb, it moves at double its climb speed and makes a single Climb check at a −5 penalty. It cannot run while climbing. It retains its Dexterity modifier to Climb checks instead of their Strength modifier.
