Prehensile Tail (Ex)

All monkey goblins have long, flexible tails that they can use to carry objects. They cannot wield weapons with their tails, but the tails do allow them to retrieve small objects stowed on their persons as a swift action.


Environment warm forests
Organization solitary, raiding party (4–9), warband (10–16), or tribe (17+ plus 100% noncombatants; 1 tribal scout of 3rd level per 20 adults, 1 or 2 war chiefs of 4th or 5th level, and 1 chieftain of 6th–8th level)
Treasure NPC gear (leather armor, kukri, net, shortbow with 10 arrows, other treasure)

Monkey goblins are an offshoot of the goblin race that has eagerly adapted to life in the high, leafy canopies of tropical forests. Equipped with ratlike prehensile tails, monkey goblins are as at home in the trees as they are on the ground.

Monkey goblins lead savage lives, and many take levels in the barbarian class, though fighters and rogues are also common among the race. While spellcasting classes are almost unheard of among them, monkey goblin clerics in the service of dark gods are given a level of respect by other monkey goblins that borders on fear.
