Rise of the Runelords (Burnt Offerings)
The most powerful tribe in western Varisia, the Thistletop goblins take their name from the ruins they call home, and which allow them to maintain their powerful position. Led by Chief Ripnugget, the tribe has long held the island fortress of Thistletop and the nearby forest of Nettlewood. In 4707 AR, an aasimar cleric of Lamashtu named Nualia Tobyn united the four other local goblin tribes under the Thistletop tribe and plotted to invade and destroy the nearby town of Sandpoint. Unfortunately for the tribe and its leadership, their plans were foiled and their stronghold was raided by local adventurers.
