FR: rename goblins to halflings.


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

FR: rename goblins to halflings.

Just about every living humanoid species that the player encounters many many times exists as a playable species too - orcs, deep elves, nagas, merfolk, and so on. With so many goblins on early dungeon floors, players should expect there to be such a playable race, but there isn't. This would be solved if we just took all goblins and renamed them to halflings. It fits nicely, you don't have to change anything about goblins. They tend to use slings, which is the best halfling skill. The only change will be with Elyvilon and same-species pacification, which might only matter if you want to pacify Ijyb as a halfling. No-one will cry, "bring back the goblins!"

You say that, but they could be the new Mountain Dwarves.

Physically similar to halflings, associates with orcs and ogres, lives in nasty mines and caverns... they're not halflings, they're "deep hobbits", aka gollums.

I think this one was already used in a book, so it's going to be too much copyright trouble. We should go with "Dildo Bangings" imho, it's free.

Why not rename player halflings to goblins? That way Robin and Ijyb don't need to change.

You're seriously underestimating crawl's players. People complained about removing ravens.

Yeah, they're a hoot.
Spoiler: show
Serious post: the people who talk about triggers rarely have actual triggers. My little brother was in therapy for a while, and for some time afterward he claimed that I was triggering him by telling him to help me with gardening. It's trendy on the internet to claim you're more oppressed and disabled than you actually are, even if it denigrates people who have suffered actual trauma.

Re: FR: rename goblins to halflings.

So what you're saying is that you're making fun of the idea of being triggered by something in order to defend the actual people who get triggered by things? Next time, just punch your brother instead of taking your sibling issues out on traumatized strangers.
