goblin

Bloody Cap

Stats and description of the monster along with a short dungeon lair
Writing:
Does a good job conveying maliciousness and viciousness
Art/design:
Use of color reinforces the creature’s theme
Usability:
Some text may be difficult to read, particularly when printed in black and white

Creatures of the Dying World

“21 lavishly illustrated monsters and an emphasis on folklore over combat stats”

Cursed Goblin Hunter

Concept: “Outraged by your impending doom, you have sworn to hunt and kill goblins wherever they may be found.”
Content:
A class that accumulates goblin-related features and physical attributes; also includes a personal countdown mechanic for conversion or reversion
Writing:
Fairly straightforward with a grimly witty edge
Art/design:
Relatively conservative with a retro/OSR feel; some subtle work in the illustration visually reinforces the concept
Usability:
May become more powerful than the average character if they survive the multiple factors working against them

Demon Dogrider / Hellhound

Concept: “Your growth has been stunted by a dark pact that binds you to a canid companion and feeds its fury.”
Content:
A lance-wielding goblin class with a beastly mount
Writing:
Includes standard class profile (the mount, not rider, benefit from class features) and a stat block for the hellhound
Art/design:
Text heavy, but uses color to organize sections and highlight important information
Usability:
As a composite character, poses certain risks but also provides particular benefits

Content:
A goblin merchant who rides around inside (yes, inside) another, gargantuan goblin
Writing:
Delivers the promised misery and humor (if you’re into body humor)
Art/design:
Text arranged around some very fleshy, visceral illustrations with clever details and well-placed censor bars
Usability:
Lots of background and description of behavior is helpful for running these two as characters rather than just monsters

Goblin Grinder

Content:
A quirky, darkly comedic scenario
Writing:
Sets the tone and provides entertaining depth

Laid out according to probable narrative flow

In the Hall of the Goblin King

A race against the goblin curse and an album of your choice
Writing:
Neatly arranged in two columns (scenario rules and concise, efficient room descriptions)

Color and typography choices facilitate quick reference
Usability:
A modular dungeon; depending on rolls and album choice, could be quick and easy, long and excruciating, or fast and brutal
