Goblonia - Core Rulebook


This is a game about goblins…

Goblonia is a story-focused role-playing game about the hijinks of modern-day goblins pushing back against the rotten, evil Faetriarchy. Set in a ramshackle city, against the backdrop of an absurd war, this is a game of secret rebellion, chaotic missions, underhanded exploits, risky ventures, and random explosions.

Nobody actually expects you to save the day…

Your stories are destined to jump off the rails, burst into flames, and crash face first into the gutter. So buckle up and embrace the mayhem! Plot your plots, scheme your schemes, bribe your friends, thwart your enemies, skulk past spriggans, tangle with trolls, hound the hobgoblins, and stick it to Titania every chance you get!

This stand-alone game contains:
•    Complete rules for playing and running the game
•    Seven goblin playbooks (plus two optional ones)
•    Step-by-step guidelines for creating goblin characters
•    A unique, card-based resolution system (each player needs 1 poker deck)
•    Full details about the city of Goblonia and its inhabitants
•    Loads of NPCs, plenty of monsters, and two starting missions

This PDF package includes files for:

  • The full game book in both page by page format and 2-page spreads
  • All Calling sheets & a player cheat sheet
  • Printable (B&W) 11x17 map of the city.
  • Clubhouse Sheet & City Influence Sheet

(You can also check out the PWYW "Quick & Dirty" edition of Goblonia for a larger preview, which includes character creation and the basic rules.)

We are planning to release this as a print-on-demand softback later this spring. It is available now, however, in hardback from your local gaming store. If they don't have it on the shelves, they can order it from the same place they get other RPGs.

Cool. I can't even find this on Amazon at present, so I will wait for PoD. Looks like it will be a lot of fun!

Like the premise, but it needs a larger preview version so I can actually see some of the contents.

Sorry about that. The entire preview was messed up and only showing the character sheet packet (which is included in the download.) We have fixed it now to give you the first section of the book.

For a full preview, I suggest checking out the PWYW "Quick and Dirty" edition of the game, here on DriveThu at That will give you character creation, the basic rules, and a starting adventure.

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.
