The mechanics of the
hobgoblin language are fairly simple. There are no articles and most
verbs follow a basic pattern of conjugation which shows plurality.
There is only one gender in Hobgoblin, as everything is considered
masculine. The hobgoblin language does have a very large vocabulary,
though. There are over 50,000 documented hobgoblin words; with 23 words
alone meaning "honor".
Double consonants and
hard consonant sounds are characteristic of the hobgoblin language.
Written Hobgoblin is not difficult to learn, and most hobgoblins are
taught to read and write a simplified Hobgoblin during their mandatory
service in the military. Hobgoblin is written right to left and their
text bears similarities to Dwarven. Most non-hobgoblin scholars agree
that hobgoblins adopted Dwarven at some point in the distant past.

When originally published, there were separate versions for Macintosh
and Windows. The "Macintosh" version was Type 1 Postscript and
reflected our background and experience on the legacy version of
software for that platform (i.e. MacOS 9 or "classic"). Since that
time, "OS X" has almost completed replaced that user base.
Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening
years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become
the preferred font format. To address these changes, an
OpenType version of the font has been created and the multi-platform
version has been consolidated.
This file now contains OpenType, TrueType and Type 1 Postscript
versions encapsulated within a single .zip file (the Mac version
previously used a StuffIt file that today is no longer universally
We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
