Still embedded in the surrounding stone, this fossilised skull has been separated from the goblin’s torso. Damage from a smashing weapon (club, mace) is evident.
This unique image of a fossilised goblin head, with remnant soft tissue still intact, was discovered by Dren Fusil, an amateur xenopalaeontologist on Gerran IX before the mass firestorms on that planet as a consequence of the Stral War in CE 2312.
Dren Fusil, formerly of Scout/Exploratory, returned to the site of the discovery a decade after the catastrophic firestorms but was unable to discover any trace of the find.
Due to the poor quality of the scant evidence, a large segment of the xenopalaeontologist community believe the image to be a clever forgery.
Despite this, the original image resides in the highly respected Cluster Institutional Museum of Xenocontacts in Centauri A. See https://www.voice.com/creation/100000000009339
