Craftsman (Ex)

Hobgoblins are very gifted with their hands when creating machines and other things and gain a +2 racial bonus on all Craft or Profession checks to create objects from metal, wood, cloth or stone.

Engulfing Winds (Su)

Three times per day, a hobgoblin can launch a gust of wind that engulfs their enemy within 30 feet for 4d4 points of wind damage and is inflicted with the Squalled status for 1d4 rounds. The target of this ability must make a Fortitude save (DC 12) to reduce the damage by half and negate the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Local DC 17).

Goblin’s Unique Handle on Things (Ex)

Hobgoblins are proficient with both short swords and hand axes.

Master Tinker (Ex)

Whatever you survive makes you a better tinkerer right? Hobgoblins gain a +1 bonus on Disable Device and Knowledge (engineering) checks. Hobgoblins are also treated as proficient with any weapon they have personally crafted.

Silver Tongued (Ex)

Unlike moblins or other races, hobgoblins are very talkative and eager to sell wares and set up trades with everyone and gain a +2 bonus on Diplomacy and Bluff checks. In addition, when they use Diplomacy to shift a creature’s attitude, they can do so up to three steps up rather than just two.
