Volume 4

  • (To Lyon) “No offense. Clarify. To Drake. Why Goblins not speak.”
  • (To Drassi) “Goblins can speak. Speak all kinds of word. And can hear. Can listen. Don’t speak because we don’t need. Understand?”

Volume 5

  • (To Erin) “Everyone in the world is hunting. So what? Nothing new.”
  • (To Comrades) “This place is too…nice.”
  • (To Comrades) “Death below. Or useless death above. Shame-worse-than-death.”
  • (To Headscratcher) “Redfang! Fight! A Goblin’s pride! A warrior’s right! Redfang! Redfang!
  • (To Erin) “Can’t let go. She will go back. Or die. A Goblin alone dies to monsters. To adventurers. It is one of the worst deaths. Slow, lonely death. Wandering death. Cruel death.”
  • (To Yvlon) “We care about artifacts. Not shiny things. They’re too shiny. Too heavy. Not useful. Good for adventurer traps, maybe.”
  • (To Yellow Splatters) “You fought Raskghar. We respect that. They killed many, many Goblins. Soldiers killed many Raskghar. Fought bravely. Respect.”
  • (To Greydath) “This is…Wandering Inn tribe. New tribe. Very new. Many Goblins come. From dungeon?
  • (To Greydath) “We know. We knew we could not stay. We knew it had to change. But why—why—”
  • (To Greydath) “Why did you have to take that from us? Why you?”
  • (To Erin) “The Human army is coming. The Goblin Lord is coming. They’ll kill a city and start a war. Will you stay? Will you run? We can protect you.”
  • (To Erin) “Not our city. Nor our people. And Humans—we don’t care what they do. But you stayed. So we stay. The Goblin Lord is ours. And he is wrong.”

Volume 6

  • (To Liscorian) “But we fought for you. We did. We fought. Why did we die? For what? For this? For stones and you? For what?”
  • (To Jelaqua) “I wasn’t mad. You’re right. Your offer is generous. I would have said yes. But I belong here.”
  • (To himself) “Goblin got gold! Goblin goes home! Goblin…this is a bad song.”
