Goblin in Thassilonian Resurgence

Source: PF2 Core Rulebook (pf2-cr46)

For my campaigns I have the following information available:

The Goblin has been moved to Uncommon as it is not a core race of the campaign region as they are still vermin region and have an active bounty on their heads.

An aspect of my Thassilonian Resurgence Adventure Path (TRAP) as the house rule on half-races. Unlike my D&D world where half races are not available, here they are part of the core setting, and as such I have tried to enhance the experience and make it easier to extend over time. Any race, including goblins can be the base race with the Half-Breed Heritage.
