Foolishly Consistent Hobgoblins appear much like slightly-smaller Hobgoblins except for their unremittingly gray skin color and attire.
Although nominally as intelligent in cognitive functions as the more common sort of hobgoblin, their pathological small-mindedness frequently undermines their stratagems. Thus if a party finds away around pitfalls and a response strategy in one of their lairs, it is 90 percent likely on each return to the lair that these hobgoblins will be falling back on the same plan.
Foolishly Consistent Hobgoblins found in lair will be ruled by an autarch (sometimes styled as a “lifecoach”), a 5 HD member of the species known for mapping cradle-to-grave “career plans” and exacting economic accounts for his followers. There is a 80 percent chance that the autarch will be attended by 1-2 barristers, 3 HD tribal witch doctors that can cast Hypnotism once a day.
Because of their bull-minded predictability they are much loved by city officials, sages, and clergy as bodyguards.
