The rising of the dead has much to do with the imprisonment of the soul...

As described in the campaign book, that is why the body rises.

Do goblins and orcs have souls?

Yes,

Goblins and Orcs can rise as fell.  I believe a few adventures (or mini-encounters) in the books have examples of Orc fell.

Aye, that much I understand. That was not the question though!  Wink

Yes, they have souls. Anything sentient can rise as Fell, and therefore also has a soul (per canon, at least as far as I've understood it).

I don't know if there's any in-game philosophy on this, but purely mechanically they have souls like everyone else, that is, they rise as fell and can be targeted by things that targets the soul, like "Trap the soul".

That depends. They were bred from dwarves and highland imps, so if you believe that the fey races have souls, then orcs and goblins do too.

Or maybe it's only humans that have souls Wink

I am more to the side of those who say everything in Aryth has a soul, from the smallest ant to the largest mountain, with the addition fo the eternal and the trapped in Midnight 2nd edition I have developed this sense that folk lore and spirits are an integral part of the world, thus this.

I take the same passage you see as imprisonemnt as attachment to the world they lived in. Wink

Since it is not sentient and living... no fell. Tongue
