About this mod

This lets you play as the various goblins seen throughout the game.

Permissions and credits
Included in this mod are the 6 distinct goblins types as well as the hobgoblin and bugbear.

New Installation Method (Still testing)

To install this mod, use ShadowChild's Candor Mod Manager. Just grab the manager and module, select your game, and import the .zip.

Old Installation Method

To install this mod, extract and copy the .pak file into your \Documents\Larian Studios\Baldur's Gate 3\Mods folder, then update your desired profile's modsettings.lsx file, using notepad or something similar, by adding the following node:

<node id="ModuleShortDesc">
    <attribute id="Folder" type="LSWString" value="PlayableGoblin"/>
    <attribute id="MD5" type="LSString" value=""/>
    <attribute id="Name" type="FixedString" value="PlayableGoblin"/>
    <attribute id="UUID" type="FixedString" value="d551044c-30ed-43c8-a615-453b2a099808"/>
    <attribute id="Version" type="int32" value="1"/>

If this is your first mod installed like this, please ensure the node goes after the closing tag (<node/>) of the Gustav "mod", or else it won't work. Finally, make the modsettings.lsx file readonly, or else the game will overwrite it and you'll lose all your hardwork!


PS - You'll probably want to also install IgnoreMessage as well, or else you'll get a harmless, but annoying popup when loading into the character creator.
