In MoonBridge part 1, there is a possible encounter with goblin children,
Mainland map B, Hex 18 (b), page 13.  The instructions imply that a
LightRaider is allowed to attack the goblin children ( they will run and
hide once they are wounded).

(Though unofficial, I wrote female and children goblins into the rewrite
of "Sorcerer's Apprentice".)

One can assume that orcs and the rest of the Dark Creatures would
reproduce pretty much the same as other beings, possibly not as fast as
humans would, or we would have a Jurrassic Park situation with DCs behind
every tree.  Then again, wars between orcs and goblins, or goblins and
OnceBorn could provide some interesting situations.  Oh, oh, I hear
Nathan's pencil scratching again...
