Creatures of the Sword Bearer
When I set out to write Legend of the Sword Bearer, I really only had considered three different species; humans, elves, and gods, and maybe some dwarves if I needed them for something. But as I wrote, some other creatures appeared, so here’s a detailed description of the beings that occupy the Sword Bearer universe.
Hobgoblins usually live in small family bands. Hobgoblins have no government to speak of; each family is led by the patriarch. Most of them answer to Robin Goodfellow, though he rarely orders them to do anything they don’t already want to do. Hobgoblins are peaceful folk, preferring pranks and tricks to warfare, but they can be formidable warriors. Hobgoblins are generally friendly toward humans; if you have one in your home or garden, they will perform small tasks in exchange for food and drink. They enjoy mushrooms, root vegetables, porridge, rabbit stew, spiced cider, music, and dancing. Hobgoblins are not to be confused with boggards- feral hobgoblins.
The giants were an ancient race of huge humanoid monsters that once wandered the cosmos, spreading death and destruction wherever they went. They devastated primeval Earth, as well as several other worlds in a cosmic war with the elves. Their only aim was chaos for its own sake. They were large and brutish, but also fiendishly intelligent. The elves eventually destroyed most of them; the rest they banished to the Realm of Ice behind a barrier of powerful magic. They still dwell there, awaiting the day when they can break loose and begin spread destruction again.
