Goblins shouldn't be core. Goblins shouldn't be core. (I don't like core alchemist either, but I can far more easily accept that.)
I hope you guys are balancing PF2e with the assumption that people will be banning goblin as a playable race at their tables!
Why does it matter? It matters because PFS is a major aspect of Pathfinder gameplay, and if Goblins are in Core, it will be difficult or impossible to keep them out of PFS.Goblins have no business being regularly available as PCs, but if they're in Core GMs won't be allowed to ban them from the table.
PC Goblins are a deal-breaker for a lot of players and GMs alike. Shoving them down our throats is one of the things making people hesitant about 2e.
