Wy u no take stuffz

First, you do not have to give the goblins stuff, since there is no timer for that and it seems that you can just ignore it forever.
But there is a bug too, if you do not have the stuff but get it after a while, you can not give it to the goblins.

I did not have the required squirrel pelts when the chief requested them.
After I had the required amount, I could not give them to the goblins.

I’m going to assume that this isn’t a bug. Thought I believe a timer would be a good addition for your response, I believe that the intention is that if you don’t have the items by the time the goblins return, you’re in “trouble” and get no second chances.
