Writing Update – warning, somewhat gruesome
Worked on one setting which lead to learning about goblins. The setting is the goblin home for this particular Hoard. While writing this I learned that Wolverines will actively hunt, even team up, and eat goblins. That could explain the nasty disposition of wolverines. <grin>
This is the description I worked up:
Medium sized cave from the outside leads to a larger cave inside. Poorly lit but the goblins can see quite well. A horrid stench of rotten meat, feces and skunk cabbage wafts up through smaller vent holes leading from the dining area and then out the cave entrance driving most creatures away. The holes are too small for goblins to use for traveling deeper into the cavern (due to the size of their heads but also the males large pot-bellies and the females overly large boobs and asses.)
On the left, going deeper in the cavern is a smaller room with a large gold throne where the goblin ruler, always called Boss, spends most of his time except when he’s spying on his gangs. Anyone coming into the main area has to pass through the throne room. From that room are two sturdy doors (both usually left open), one that leads to Boss’s private quarters (and a dozen smaller caves where his wives and children live) and the other to the dining cave which has five long tables with benches on both sides. There are two corridors off that to the caves for the rest of the goblins (a few for single families, the rest dormitories) and the dungeon area.
Wolverines feed mainly on injured or drunk goblins caught outside the cavern. But they will also slip down into one of the vent holes to the dining room and from there search out their prey. Wolverines will even sometimes work together to bring down goblins and feast. The wolverines eat only the fleshiest part of the goblin body. They leave the rest of the body where it falls. When Wolverines kill in the cavern, other goblins usually eat the remains after the wolverines have left.
