Every once in a while in the forests surrounding my town, I find a lone goblin worker wandering aimlessly. Sometimes they have a little fire pit that they light in the night but either way, it's just them all alone. I have already completed the Goblin Combat Campagin so to still see one waddling around was a bit of a surprise. I dispatched a footman to get rid of him, and the poor goblin in a futile attempt to survive fled. He was cut down easily enough but I felt absolutely terrible about it.
I'm not sure if it's just a bug but it's like this Goblin was left behind when the rest of them packed up camp and left and now had to fend for itself. So that's when an idea popped in my head.
What if after you complete the Goblin Campaign you could recruit these lone goblins to join your town at the cost of a little food? I think it would be awesome to upgrade the new goblins and have marauders in tow with footmen or Cheiftans marching along with Knights. And maybe you could gain the ability to build the some of the goblin buildings too. I mean those barricades they look like a great and cheap way stall invaders or a nice prop for my military barracks.
I think this is a much better way to deal with the Goblin remnants rather than attacking them knowing they can't defend themselves.
