A goblin tribe has an exact pecking order; each member knows who is above him and who is below him. They fight amongst themselves constantly to move up this social ladder.
We now have to prove to them we are the top of ladder so they won't try to challenge us. They kill for the fun of it and we don't want any of them getting any ideas.
Ecology: Goblins live only 50 years or so. They do not need to eat much, but will kill just for the pleasure of it. They eat any creature from rats and snakes to humans. In lean times they will eat carrion. Goblins usually spoil their habitat, driving game from it and depleting the area of all resources. They are decent miners, able to note new or unusual construction in an underground area 25% of the time, and any habitat will soon be expanded by a maze-like network of tunnels.

"For every one the want that is bad. What you will want we do not know; we shall know. Some want to follow things that move, to watch and slink and wait and spring; to kill and bite, bite deep and rich, sucking the blood. It is bad. Not to chase other Men; that is the Law. Are we not Men? Not to eat Flesh or Fish; that is the Law. Are we not Men?"
"Evil are the punishments of those who break the Law."
"Are we not men?"
In other words; we are not Goblins. We shouldn't have to stoop to their level. Are we not men, and women?
...I'm a dwarf, lady, an' them gobs there ain't nuttin' but breed'rs o' more gobs if we lets 'em live! I says we flattens 'em.
That'd be Barreel's thoughts on the matter, anyway... Of course, if the general consensus is to let the quivering masses live, he'll go along, but is liable to make a threat or two just for good measure. If I can get work to leave me alone for a minute and a half, I'll whip up a post along those lines. Somebody wanna run interferance with the users for me?
