An interesting take on goblins. Even without the addition of Vega, they would still be a fascinating race in their own right. How are they seen by large races among the goblin species like orcs or hob-goblins? I'd imagine that these would be harder to supplant than goblins. Go to Comment
This is rather nice, I say!
A good twist on the stereotypical goblin sword-fodder, with the added benefit of another colony springing up anywhere a veglin corpse is left unburnt.
What I'd add, though, is that the different tribes receive the visions in varying quality, perchance with interference from other sources, leading to peculiar offshoots of Vega's spawn, some believing rather weird stuff.
Also, low-key villains will find it tempting to impersonate Vega to gain the services of Veglins.
Very nice. Interesting new breed of goblin. This submission makes it more logical for a fantasy world to be dotted with dungeons or underground strongholds. I'm assuming that the Veglins' produce tunnels/doors/rooms with ceilings high enough for humans to stand upright. Well done. Welcome to the Citadel. Go to Comment
@Echo: Good point. The PCs could also get in on the Vega-impersonation if they were so inclined.
In my campaign, veglins were actually introduced immediately after Vega had been killed, and the whole world was celebrating. The PCs were not very involved with the killing of Vega, but even they took notice when they ran into strange goblins stealing alchemical ingredients and claiming that Vega had been commanding them to do so in their dreams. Plus, after they had unveiled the veglin threat, a lot of the common folk revered them in much the same way as Hactor, simply because they had overcome a related (if much smaller) threat.
