Rise of the Runelords
Goblin Druid of Thistletop
Gogmurt is a goblin hero of the Thistletop goblins tribe. A trusted adviser to Warchief Ripnugget and spiritual leader for the tribe for many years, Gogmurt is one of the most powerful goblins in western Varisia. He could often be found in the Nettlewood spending time with his animal companion, a fire pelt named Tangletooth. In 4707 AR, the goblin druid came into minor conflict with Ripnugget over how to handle the tribe’s aligning with the “longshanks” who united the goblin tribes to destroy Sandpoint, wishing to maintain his position as adviser which was taken by Nualia Tobyn.
During Arcane Investigation’s assault on Thistletop, Gogmurt was defeated, and surrendered mid-battle. Garfunkle continued to attack Gogmurt even after his surrender, but after Gogmurt continued to cry mercy, the entire party stopped and heard what he had to say.
Gogmurt was unhappy with the way Ripnugget was running things and told the party that “no goblin would ever attack the town of Sandpoint again.” Needless to say, the party didn’t quite trust Gogmurt enough on his own, so when they left to head back to town to rest, they tied up Gogmurt and left him in the thistle tunnels.
When Arcane Investigations returned, Gogmurt’s head was on a spike. Likely the work of Ripnugget.
