In MERP the Wood-Goblins are a small Orc-Tribe inside the Old Forest.The Wood-Goblins are obedient to the dark magic of the forest and in communication with the spirits of the Awakened trees.In Eriador they are also known as Wood-nackers, especially among the Hobbits.
The Goblins of the Old Fores were secretive and wood-wary . Their three small tribes were led by Sorcerers , rather than warriors , for they worshiped the evil trees of the forest—they could not survive the forest' s wrath if they did not. By and large , they avoided any conspicuous raids beyond the wood ; folk living along the borders occasionally forgot they existed.
In the LOTRRPG, the Orcs of the forest race are equated with the Orcish trackers.
In fanfiction the names Hora-Hai and Gimba Hai are sometimes applied to the races of forest Orcs and Trackers.
