Gobwins are a non-capital sideErf-b1-p079a and are Natural Allies to Gobwin Knob. They are about half the height of Men, have green skin, and fangs. The Erfwiki mascot (look in the upper-left of the window) is a gobwin spearman.
Prior to the reign of Stanley the Tool, Gobwins broke alliance with Gobwin Knob (which is not typical behavior for Natural Allies) captured the City and croaked King Saline IV.Erf-b1-p079 Stanley, who was a Heir Designate and Chief Warlord to Saline, inherited the Side and became Overlord, then recaptured the city. Ansom believed that Stanley orchestrated this rebellion to come to powerErf-b1-p034; however, he lacked evidence for the accusation.
Hobgobwins may belong to the Gobwin side.
The Gobwin Insurrection, occuring after Wanda betrayed Faq and swore allegience to Stanley, was possibly orchestrated by Wanda alone. Where Stanley would have been controlled by Duty and disallowed from plotting against King Saline IV, Wanda had weak Loyalty and may simply have suggested Stanley take certain important Casters on a mission she had created. The Gobwins, manipulated by Wanda into believing they could hold the city by Suggestion Spells and/or more mundane methods, attacked the city and killed Saline. Stanley then returns to recapture the city with complete deniability, and no direct knowledge of Wanda's participation in the affair; thus, Loyalty, Duty, and Obedience are satisfied while Stanley takes command of Gobwin Knob.
