Gamerguides states that the Goblin Village can also be discovered from a scripted random encounter involving goblins. I’ve personally never come across it, despite looking, but it’s described at: https://www.gamerguides.com/pathfinder-kingmaker/guide/walkthrough/chapter-2-monster-invasion/goblin-ambush.

Events & People
  1. Primal Hydra (Magical Beast 9). On Normal difficulty, they have AC 22, 113 hp, Fort +12/Ref +12/Will +7 saves, DR 10/cold iron and magic, are immune to being prone, and (as with all primal creatures) have a permanent Blur (2) effect. They each make 5 attacks at a +15 to hit for 1d8+6 damage. There are multiple encounters.
  2. Goblin Horsereaper. It offers you a quest to go feed their beastie. Your companions are pretty skeptical, as they should be since it isn't a real quest. It’ll then open the adjacent gate.
    • The goblin will run to Location B1 afterwards (and can be spoken to and attacked if you wish). You’ll get 67 exp if you talk to it and let it go, which is the same exp you’d get for killing it.
  3. Goblin. It’ll open the gate to the Primal Hydra as you approach.
  4. Primal Manticore (Magical Beast 9). On Normal difficulty, they have AC 23, 113 hp, Fort +14/Ref +11/Will +8, damage reduction 10/magic and cold iron. They make 3 attacks, a bite (+13 to hit for 1d8+13 damage) and two claws (+14 to hit for 2d4+13 damage). They can be skinned for a Manticore Skin (32 gold) with a Lore: Nature DC 24. There are multiple encounters.
  5. Trap (Perception DC 0, Trickery DC 6 - 56 exp). The traps deal 51 slashing damage if triggered.
  6. Goblin Horsereaper. It tries to taunt you to run into the traps. It runs to Location F1. If you speak to it, you can attack it or let it go (NG moral choice - 67 exp). You get the same amount of exp for letting it go as you do for killing it.
  7. Goblin Merchant. He sells the Fearsome Mace of Chwurk for 123,457 gold. It’s a masterwork mace that's not worth the cost. You get nothing special for buying it.
  8. Goblin Arch-chemist x2 (Alchemist 7, Rogue 1), Goblin Horsereaper x2 (Fighter 8). They get hostile as you approach. The Arch-chemists have Masterwork Crossbows and Rings of Protection +1. The Horsereapers have Masterwork Shortswords.
  9. Ferocious Owlbear (Magical Beast 14). It has 22 AC, 261 hp, and Fort +21/Ref +15/Will +9 saves. It makes three attacks: a bite and 2 claws at +26 to hit for 2d6+24 damage. It’s very vulnerable to will-focused control spells like Overwhelming Grief (Bard 3/Wizard 4). It can be skinned for an Owlbear Pelt (32 gold) with a Lore: Nature DC 24.
  10. Nok-Nok. You gain 600 exp for speaking to him. You have a couple of options after the conversation: you can 1) let him join, 2) leave him for now, 3) or attack him (CE moral choice). I recommend taking him, since he's the last companion and absolutely great for melee murderizing (plus comic relief).
  11. Goblins. They’ll threaten you with a curse of Lamashtu if you kill them. You can 1) attack (LN or CE moral choice) or 2) leave (NG, N, CN, NE moral choice). You get 450 exp if you spare them. This choice has additional plot consequences during this Act.

  1. 3 Goblin Horsereaper bodies. They each carry Masterwork Shortswords, Light Shields, Shortbows, and Breastplates.
  2. Token of the Dryad.
  3. Taldan Warrior’s Dog Tag.
  4. Nuts.
  5. Rocks (Perception DC 23): 500 gold, Peridot x3, Tuskwater Oysters.
  6. Exquisite Pearl x4, Jasper x4, Rations, Rice x3.
  7. Scroll of Fireball, Scroll of Scorching Ray x2, Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds x2, Giant Spider Legs.
  8. Beastrender (+2 animal bane falchion), Flour x4.
  9. Melted Shared of a Ring.
  10. Rusty Horseshoe x3, Peridot, Padded Armor, 67 gold.
  11. Hidden Bag (Perception DC 15): Belt of Incredible Dexterity +4, Soft Cheese, Trout, Fruits.
  12. Taldan Horseshoe (Perception DC 7).
  13. Goblin Horsereaper body. It carries a Masterwork Shortsword, Light Shield, Shortbow, and Breastplate.
  14. 200 gold, Potion of Cure Serious Wounds.
Advancing the Story

I recommend going to the Bridge over the Gudrin River, if you haven't returned there again. Once you complete both of the Quests: Mother of Monsters and Witch Hunt, return to the Capital.
