Goblinville - Rules of Play

Watermarked PDF

Issue One of the Goblinville Gazette

Goblinville is a tabletop rpg about broke goblins traveling to dangerous and fantastical places to find treasure and make rent.  The character creation process is fast and collaborative, producing unique goblins with lots of personality.  The core resolution system shares narrative pacing between players and the GM, keeping the focus on clear stakes and tough choices.  It's a character-driven dungeon crawler that works for short, punchy sessions and long campaigns.  The town itself is the key source of adventure and improving it is a core part of character advancement.

This text contains the Goblinville rules of play and a harrowing adventure site: The Pit of Mirrors.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
