Goebie villagers are Goebies that can be found wandering around Kanatah and Otot on Mazcab. Four can also be found in the Nardah goebie camp. They can appear with a variety of different names, with each world having a random set of named villagers. This includes the Mazcab guides by the entrances to Nemi Forest.
They occasionally converse with other villagers, and sometimes greet nearby players. Their behaviour towards the player depends on player's
reputation amongst the Goebies.
As part of the
Mod Deg trading sequence, players can use Apollo's helmet on a Goebie, prompting it to trade it for the Magic flute or give the name of the Goebie who will continue the trade.
During the Christmas events in December, goebies can be seen wearing
