Hobgoblin is a type of monster in ADOM. They are common monsters in the early game, with similar stats to orcs. That is to say, they are physically weak but can deliver a surprisingly powerful attack to poorly armored beginner PCs. They are usually easy to kill, though the PC has to be very careful of wilderness encounters with large groups of hobgoblins around the start of the game.

Special abilities[]


Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 11, PV: 0, Hits: 5, Attacks: 1, Damage: 1-8. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

No effect besides satiation. Goblins "don't sit well" with PCs of most races, but have no adverse effects on them or their alignment.

Monster memory[]

An average sized humanoid, looking like the smaller cousin, the goblin, with the same disdaining sneer but stretched upwards a bit and given a little more muscle. Hobgoblins have a bad attitude and could cause trouble to those of lesser stature or smaller mind.
