||Anaxial's Annex. Oralans are female slorifings, and mate with all of the male varieties. They are among the most humanoid of all the goblins, but possess a mottled greenish-yellow skin and bedraggled fern-like hair. They are shy of outsiders, and will always hide when any approach. Any slorifings living nearby will also try to distract the intruders away from an oralan's lair, for they are a rare race essential to the survival of all goblin-kind. Oralans also maintain most of the ancient lore and myths of the slorifing people, and many are full-fledged shamans.
When a male slorifing reaches the age where it must mate, it seeks out the nearest oralan, and conducts a special mating ritual. Once the ritual is completed, the male travels to a secluded spot, digs a hole in the ground and crawls within to die. Soon after, a fernlike plant grows on the ground above the hole and sprouts pods from which a litter of miniature imps will eventually be released. Almost all of these imps will resemble the male parent, but around one in twenty will be a miniature oralan. Oralan imps seek out the adults to teach them, but eventually each will travel away to make its own solitary lair.
