Bel Shalor's Hungering Children
The hobgoblins of Eberron originated in Khorvaire. They are called the ghaal’dar, or “mighty people”, in their own tongue. They are a clever, strong and disciplined race with perhaps a tendency to cruelty. Their intelligence and strength, as well as their organizational skills make them the natural leaders of the goblinoid races.
The hobgoblins have a keen artistic and crafting sense and are expert stonemasons and weapon and armorsmiths, with the Dhakaani rivaling even the dwarf clans of the Mror Holds in skill. The hobgoblins are also excellent miners and their byeshk mines during the height of the Dhakaani Empire made it possible to make weapons capable of holding back the armies of Xoriat.
