He can also choose a younger age when he chooses another adventure.

Goblin Shaman Magic === Not much is known about true Goblin Shamans except that they are even more rare than true wizards. Lesser Goblin Shamans have significantly less power, but are still deadly in numbers. Goblin Shaman staffs more often then not have human skulls on top and will start flashing brightly according to the shaman's emotion.
