Concept Art: Goblin

Concept Art: Goblin - Lord of the Rings Online -

Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online has released a new piece of concept art for our critical eyes. This time around, it's the Goblin that we've been give to look at, and he's not a pretty fellow.

The Goblins of the North Downs

"In the twilight he saw a large black Orc, probably Uglúk, standing facing Grishnákh, a short crook-legged creature, very broad and with long arms that hung almost to the ground. Round them were many smaller goblins. Pippin supposed that these were the ones from the North."

–The Two Towers, Book III, Ch. 3 The Uruk-hai

Scavenging the North Downs, like their brethren roaming as far west as the Ered Luin and as far east as their dark home in the Misty Mountains, the goblins of Middle-earth are as vile and cruel examples of Orc-kind as one may encounter. Rarely found alone, goblins traditionally hunt in groups both small and large, preferring the advantage of numbers to inflict their cruelty on the Free Peoples of Middle-earth.

In the pages of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Orc-kind may be recognized by many names. From lowly and numerous goblins, to the various tribes and breeds of Orcs, to the cruel and mighty Uruk-hai, LOTRO will feature each prominently as the foot soldiers of the dark tide sweeping across Middle-earth in the days leading up the War of the Ring.
