Unless that gobwin is asleep, I think we can safely assume that it is tripping.
It may have been poisoned somehow. There are quite a large number of ways this is possible, and we need to determine which. (If the gobwin was driven mad by something it saw, then I'm afraid we we are going to lose the game horribly. My curiousity will be the end of us.)
Possibilities for the poison's source that spring to mind are one of the snails, the water, the cup we're holding (maybe all 3 of the gobwins we've seen have drunk from it), something on the rocks around us, or the air.
Does the air or water smell foul? Is there a layer of grime or fungus on the walls, floor, or ceiling?
Before we kicked it, did the first gobwin have any visible injuries?
I think our next move should be to sling a single rock at the gobwin. If it tries to attack us, it will have to go thru the water or the snail to do so.
