Grobbems are small creatures which are annoying and hostile. They are pack like since they are easy to kill individually. They hunt humans for food and a handful can take a human down without losses.
They blend in with the natural surrounds and have been seen in gray, brown, white, and green to camouflage with the surroundings.
They can hurl arrow sized spears and fight using knife sized swords. However, most prefer to use their claws and teeth.
Packs are from 3 – 10 of these creatures, but if sufficient food is found, packs of fifty plus have been found.
Their is a rumor of a full city of these in the Montburn Mountains. This however is not viewed as credible.
The Grobbems are attacking refugees in the following manner. If the refugees heading to Awcon are in a small group. The Grobbems make and all out attack and risk injury. They try to kill the weakest person and retreat. When the refugees go to bury the body, they attack again and try to make the survivors run and they then take the dead body back to the lair. this is a rare tactic since grobbems look for a 2 – 1 advantage.
Typical grobbems cannot tell the difference in human clothing and armament or weapons but they can pick up on body language. Their are leader grobbems and exceptional grobbems.
If there is a large group of refugees, they attack in slightly coordinated waves. These waves do tend ot go after the same people. It is unknown if they all sense the weakest people or if they are truly coordinated.
Tiny green blobs of claws and teeth are all people see when these creatures are standing still. they see less than that in battle.
