With an origin as the weakest tribe in the Floodplains, the Flooded Waters tribe flourished under the new leadership of the Goblin Rags, growing larger and more powerful through the course of the story, though not without their own calamities. Currently, they are one of the most powerful Goblin tribes on Izril.
however since their technological developments, they absorbed any tribe that they could get their hands on. Meanwhile, the Redfang Tribe summoned many tribes to the High Passes in order to unite against the Flooded Waters tribe.
While the Flooded Waters Tribe were initially few in number, under their new leader, Rags, they started overrunning the other Goblin Tribes by slaying or defeating their Chieftains and absorbing their Goblins into the tribe. Over time other Tribes started joining and letting themselves be absorbed all on their own.
Some of the known absorbed tribes are, the Jawbreaker Tribe, Sword Taker Tribe, Bloody Hand Tribe, Gold Stone Tribe, Still Grass Tribe, Fire Bite Tribe, Furgather Tribe, Rockfall Tribe and Frostfeeder Tribe.
There are two more Tribes that were only initially partially absorbed. These two tribes were the Redfang Tribe and the Mountain City Tribe. Following the Siege of Liscor, all remnants of those tribes along with those of Reiss' Army and the Cave Goblins, were absorbed into Flooded Waters.
After Goblinhome was established, Rabbiteater, under the guise of the Goblin Slayer, directed other tribes he came across to head towards Goblinhome, where other tribe members would escort them. Such tribes include the Rolling Rocks Tribe.
While it was true that Garen, the Chieftain of the Redfang Tribe, intentionally lost to Rags, by Goblin traditions the Redfang Tribe should have been absorbed, but due to Garen usurping Rags’ authority, the absorption did not happen. This led to the Redfang Tribe splitting in two with those who saw Rags as their true new Chieftain and those who did not understand what was going on and were confused by the whole order but were still loyal to Garen.
When Rags finally had enough of Garen's insubordination, she abandoned him, and took the Redfangs that acknowledged Rags as leader with her, thus absorbing them into her own tribe.
The other Redfangs that stayed with Garen ultimately saw the error of their ways when they were reunited with Garen's old adventurer team and 5 of their lost brothers. After the Redfangs heard the true events of Garen's betrayal of the Halfseekers, and listened in on how they themselves had betrayed Rags by not siding with her from the start, the Redfangs changed their mind on who would be the true chieftain. Finally, the remaining Redfangs watched the five elite warriors stand up to and fight Garen because he was not their true Chieftain. This culminated with the remaining Redfangs leaving Garen and siding with their 5 lost brothers and thus with Rags.
Mountain City Tribe
When Rags left Dwarfhalls Rest, she took with her dissatisfied members of the Mountain City Tribe, such as Poisonbite's group, Noears, and Quietstab.
When Tremborag was slain by Tyrion Veltras, Rags' speech convinced roughly half of the Mountain City Tribe to join her over Reiss or Garen. However, before they could be fully integrated into the tribe, Reiss tried to murder Rags due to their conflicting plans, in an attempt to consolidate the combined Goblin forces under him. This resulted in most of Flooded Waters' new members being absorbed into the Goblin Lord's army.
When Reiss died, all remaining Mountain City members and Reiss' army joined Flooded Waters for good.

|Erin Solstice encountered six members of the Flooded Water Tribe in the Amentus tree grove located near the First Wandering Inn. They were harvesting Amentus fruit. They drew knives and chased Erin over a stream and into her inn, where they dealt her a few cuts before she wounded and chased them off. At nighttime a day or two later, a Goblin from an ambush group-armed with the tribe's best weaponry, half-rusted shortswords-entered the Inn, while Erin was out, and attempted to leave without realizing Erin, had returned. The ambush group waiting outside received the unconscious scouting goblin, thrown through the doors by Erin, before running away.
A few days later, Erin was walking to Liscor and realized at last three Goblins were watching her. She threw a rock at one, causing them to run away. As she continued to walk and occasionally threw stones, more Goblins watched her, looking for weaknesses to exploit. As Erin returned to the Inn that night, Goblins threw rocks at her, causing her to bleed, but Relc chased them off.
The next morning, three Goblins were killed by Relc and their heads brought to the Inn. As Erin was burying the three Goblins, she was attacked by a small goblin with a knife wearing a stained loincloth and a few rags, who she slapped away and kicked in the stomach. She returned to the newly buried grave and remained there until she heard a horn and realized she was surrounded by the Flooded Waters Tribe. As Erin began to run, she dodged arrows shot by the Chieftain and the only Hobgoblin in the tribe. She passed the ragged Goblin and told her that she didn't kill them. The entire tribe, around 40 or fewer Goblins, followed Erin back to her inn, where she went aside and started boiling oil in her pot. The Chieftain broke the door down a few minutes later. After the Chieftain knocked her to the ground and attempted to assault her, Erin fought back and was stabbed through her midsection before she threw the boiling oil on the Chieftain, slowly killing him.
Four Goblins were harvesting fruit at the Amentus tree grove when Erin appeared which caused them to run away in fear. Later that day, around dinnertime, Erin invited the four Goblins to share free dinner with her, which they hesitantly accepted. That night, their stomachs stuffed, the Goblins tried to pay her three silver coins, which she refused. Later, Erin watched the Flooded Waters Tribe chase down and kill a Rock Crab, which they then ate. The ragged Goblin paused her eating when she saw Erin and thought about the coins she'd been collecting.
Later, a group of nine Goblins lead by the ragged Goblin, nicknamed 'Rags' by Erin, came to the inn with money to eat food. The group ate food and played chess, and Rags played chess with the Antinium that came with Klbkch, managing to beat two Workers back-to-back. As Rags attempted to hide a chess piece with her as she left, Erin stopped her and told her she can come back and play any time.
The group of nine goblins lead by Rags received beatings when they returned to their tribe. The next day, the group of goblins, now down to four from nine, hid near the inn. The rest of the Flooded Waters Tribe, forty in total, surrounded the inn. The four goblins, led by Rags, wanted to intervene but were too afraid. The tribe entered the inn and briefly fought Erin before Klbkch arrived and reduced their number to nine, but at that point, he was gravely injured. The four other goblins entered the inn and fought the nine remaining. Together, they managed to kill seven more, and Rags' group chased the two left that fled.
Before it absorbed the Redfang Tribe, it had twelve Hobs, which could easily be considered the equivalent of two Silver-rank team of adventurers.

- Before the Flooded Waters Tribe gained more power, Relc was well-known in the tribe. He had killed more of their kind by himself than the rest of the other guardsmen combined. He was faster than any Goblin—faster than arrows—had skin tougher than metal, and he could kill even a Hob with his bare hands.
