Life in the Fallen Land revolves around two things; the Gourd Cities and the Yellow Lotus. The Gourd Cities are the vast trees in which the strongest tribes make their homes. The Yellow lotus flower affects every aspect of Swamp Goblin life. This potent herb is used in everything from cooking and medicinal remedies to the preparation of poisons and the potions used by the Swamp Goblin Shamen.
The Swamp Goblins are a war-like race but they do not fight for personal gain like so many of the other races. Their wars are territorial and essential to the survival of their race. The constant shifting of territory keeps knowledge of the jungle fluid, which is vital in a world where ignorance and stagnation are an invitation to death.
