Please don't say the word goblin or other creatures that are obsessed with money, they're antisemitic (i know u didn't know don't worry)
I’m not an expert on folklore or Judaica, but I am a Jew who has taken some classes in European folklore, so I have a couple thoughts on this. “Goblin” is a generic term to refer to a lot of different mythical creatures, some of them mischievous, some of them friendly, some of them evil. Some goblins do share traits with antisemitic stereotypes (lookin’ at you, JKR ... and also a lot of modern RPGs), and sometimes that is intentional antisemitism on the part of the people telling the stories.
But the term is still very, very broad, and there are so many different types of creatures that are called “goblins” that they can’t all be said to represent an antisemitic stereotype.
Shakespeare’s Puck is a hobgoblin, for example, and this was a book I read as a kid and enjoyed:

I would agree that we shouldn’t call other human beings “goblins” (because at the very least it seems pretty rude, if not potentially antisemitic?) but calling my mom’s dog a goblin because she reminds me of a funny little creature doesn’t strike me as problematic. I could be wrong here, but as someone who has read a lot of folklore, the term “goblin” could apply to almost as diverse an array of different creatures as the term “dragon,” and I would rather focus on critiquing goblin characters that use antisemitic tropes than removing the word “goblin” from the lexicon.

more bats! i don't think i mentioned it last time, but bats were suggested by Kona Goodhart and Sabrina Gross over on patreon.
here we have some bat goblins! a fresh citrus bride, a small flashy groom, and a kindly priest all ready for a fancy treetop ceremony. everyone in town is invited, be there or be square.
