Goblins! You know ‘em, you love ‘em, you’ve been fighting them at first level for as long as you’ve been slinging dice around.

Scott Baird at Film Rant ranked goblins as the weakest monster in D&D, saying,“Goblins are purposely designed to be weak and ineffective in combat so that they can fulfill their role as the tutorial battle of Dungeons & Dragons.”

Yeah, well, guess what? The goblins are mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore!

Gobsmack! is a toolkit to help you re-imagine goblins into an urban setting, right alongside your elves, your dwarfs, and your gnomes as denizens of your grand capital city. They live and work in your big fantasy city, and you can use them as random NPCs, contacts, rivals, or enemies!

Gobsmack! gives you the tables, tools, and options to create urban goblin NPCs in seconds, with goblin names, goblin jobs, goblin quirks, and goblin motivations, along with plot hooks and story ideas, background lore and information, practical advice for game masters, and suggestions for bringing player character goblins into your existing campaign setting.

Do you have any plans to release this as a PoD or stock it with Exalted Funeral?

Yes, Print on Demand is on the way. It’s got to make its way through the production process, but as soon as it’s cleared, the POD will be available right here.

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.
