Chaos goats mostly worship chaos like demons because nobody else wants them once carrying the taint. Mutated goats are beyond redemption even if they seem ok.

Now when you consider goats in a pre industrial setting were as common as humans you will have to start adding goat kingdoms and territories to your setting maps.

Goats are not all just kindly, wise and good. Some bad goats are tainted by evil. Here are the most common types that menace the countryside.

Goatmen, satyrs, goat centaurs and goat spirits have good versions. Good spirits can purify food and water instead and protect good farmers who are kind to goats. Farmers who like them make corn goats from bundles of wheat. Mutants might be unhappy with lot  and not so evil but physically tainted and shunned by good goats and gods. Good cults dont let mutants enter holy ground.

Fire Goats are but one element, air goats can walk on air and carry witches to sabbats, earth goats can burrow at 3" and steal food stores, water goats can swim freely in water and can turn rear ends into fish tails, they like to drown kids. Elementals can be various alignments but the nicer ones mostly stay home and dont bother people. Good or neutral ones could be commanded to do evil. Colour hue best way to tell apart as evil ones darker or tainted by shadows. Greater elemental goats have more HD and can create elemental walls and fire elemental bolts. Quazi elements like ice, lightening, crystal, lava and fog might have goats too. All elemental goats explode on death and their effects don't harm their own kind. Elementals resist the element of their own type and dislike other elements.

Non magic satyrs are fauns, they are a bit nicer than satyrs and less likely to rape you. Fauns might just take you home for tea and want to play checkers or go on about their families. As fauns don't have powers they rely on being chatty even evil ones. Wicked fauns are sadists.
