I've added some goblins to the map, and NPCs now have very basic AI.
Adding the goblins was fairly easy, thanks to the way the content pipeline is designed (it's data-driven), although I was stuck for a while trying to figure out why they weren't appearing in the map editor or the client. I eventually figured out that it was because I forgot to add the textures to the build system, doh!
