Yup. It's riddiculous. Goblins are the lowest tier enemies you face in DnD, tied with Kobolds probably. Yet they somehow have funds and access to magic arrows, achlemical bombs etc. This is just stupid. So what Orcs will have? Magical Axes, magical plate armors, ring of protection +1, Orc Shaman will have Staff of Magi?

There is no DnD balance here. Take a look at NWN1 beginning or BG1 beginning. You are lucky to find something else than throwing axe from enemies and a wolf can kill you. Tha is what level 1 in DnD is. And goblins have 2 coppers on them, short bows and some normal arrows, sometimes club or dagger/short sword.

This is fantasy setting, but it's not DnD.

So I'm curious; are you paying attention to the dialog from NPCs outside of "go kill x"? I have to ask, because there is Absolute-ly an explanation for how the goblins are acting given in a dialog, in the Druid's Grove. I'm at a loss to explain how, if you're actually exploring the dialog from NPCs in that zone, you're not getting that. I'm at a loss to explain how you're not getting it if you managed to get into the Blighted Village w/out combat, and listened to the ambient discussions going on with the goblins there. Because there are Absolute-ly some rather strong hints there too. There are clues all throughout the goblin camp that they Absolute-ly aren't working on their own. In fact, I'm Absolute-ly positive that there are tons of clues scattered all over the map, even in magic items that can drop that Absolute-ly explain that there's a force working behind the scenes.
