SPECIAL ABILITIES

Goblin Punch (Su)

Once per day, a goblin can launch a wind blast (+7 ranged touch attack) at a single target within 30 feet. If it hits, the target takes 1d4+3 points of wind damage and must make a Reflex save (DC 13) or fall prone. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Local DC 17).
