Hobgoblins are goblins who have been forced to wear shoes. This contains their wickedness and they grow to be larger than a man. Some particularly wicked goblins will continue growing until they are quite corpulent. Hobgoblins are not capable of removing their shoes.

Hobgoblins who serve evil wizards or witches may be found to have black ooze inside them if they are killed.

Hobgoblins are not often found in the Land of the Dead, to encounter them there is a sinister auspice.
