Half-goats result from matings between humans and goatfolk. The majority of these cross-breeds are moronic half-wits; player character half-goats are assumed to be within the rare 10% of goatman hybrids of near-normal intellect.

Each half-goat possesses a few goatish features – such as a goatee beard (even on goat-women), goat eyes, goats hooves in place of feet, or a rudimentary tail ending in a tuft of coarse hair. They also have small nub-horns, no longer than an inch, atop their heads. Their butt attack is thus not particularly to be feared, although their thick, bony skull can still deliver a blow of some force (1d6 damage). Those who have goat eyes (2-in-6 chance) will possess infravision which functions up to 30′ distance.

Half-goats speak Woldish (common) and Caprice.
