Slayer's Guide to Goblins

Watermarked PDF

Throughout history, creatures of all types have underestimated the goblin's cunning and sheer will to survive. Often they have paid for this misconception with their lives. Deep in the warren of a goblin tribe there is no room for error. This harsh and unforgiving environment shapes the goblin and thwarts the invader.

Full of a hatred for all life, driven by their dark god to unspeakable depravity and far more cunning than Game Masters and players have given them credit for, goblins are truly worthy of our respect. They breed faster than most races and given time can outlast and overwhelm most enemies. They are masters of stealth, traps and ambushes and goblins are rarely spotted until it is too late.

This book will introduce you to the customs, legends and culture of one of the smallest but most formidable races in the land. The information herein will equip you, if you let it and bring you safely home when you next cross the path of the ‘mere’ goblin.

Each Slayer's Guide features a single race, in this case the goblin. In the following pages is a wealth of information on the physiology of the goblin species as well as an overview of their typical habitat. You will learn the fundamentals of their violent society and the bloody religion driving them. Game Masters will be provided with a number of scenario hooks to bring goblins into their existing games, as well as information designed to help them portray these creatures with more personality than ever, injecting renewed challenge into old encounters with faceless enemies. Also provided herein is important information on how goblins wage war, stage raids and their view of combat in general.

Game Masters will find a ready-made warren, complete with background, occupants and tactics at the end of the book, and statistics for standard goblin archetypes for use in their encounters. The Game Master can insert the adventure into a campaign as a straightforward dungeon crawl. More likely however, once the strengths and tactics of the goblin race are better understood, this challenge will stretch over a number of exciting gaming sessions.

With the information provided herein, Game Masters should be able to ensure their players never again encounter these cunning and malicious creatures without giving them a healthy dose of respect. In sufficient numbers, goblins are a match for any challenge. They surely understand this maxim and should be making the most of it in every campaign.

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.
