The Third War
Squee, an energetic little goblin started working with a band of mercenaries who decided to side with the Dragonborn. Once a few alliances were formed and some missions were safely behind him squee got a high level warlock to create a burning ring of regeneration. The warlock charged him twice the price and gave him only 1hp regeneration. (Squee paid his life savings of 20,000 gp and should have gotten a stronger healing ring). He went back to his band of mercenaries and took over, even though most of the other goblins where bigger than Squee, his new ring allowed him to beat everyone. Although few goblins respected Squee before he became leader, they soon realized he was a good leader because their numbers increased threefold.
Squee met his death in the morning when a ranger broke in through his secret tunnel to the kitchen (he doesn’t like his subordinates to know he gets the best food, he likes them to feel equal, they work a little harder and run away less). The ranger discovered the ring and cut his arm off, the last thing he remembers is a burning sensation.
