Gobblin’: The Goblin RPG was years in the making and is now going strong on Kickstarter. Drunk and Ugly Games are asking only for a humble $1,500 to fund and, at the time of writing, have more than $1,300 in the pot. There’s still about three weeks left on the project. You can follow progress here.
The goblins have been magically expelled from their world by an alliance of good and evil races. They’ve ended up on an Earth without any humans left. This is truly post-apocalyptic. In mankind’s place are mutant animals, dangerous machines all sorts of new terrors. The goblins love it.
As the Gobblin’ Kickstarter says;
The creatures who crave violence, stupidity and chaos have just found the perfect means to obtain it.
A pledge of $15 gets you access to the playtest version of Gobblin and a digital copy of the final release. If you can find $20 then there’s access to the Alph and final digital edition of Gobblin’ as well as the ‘First Day DLC’ expansion with four extra classes. If paper is your thing then step up to $35 for a print cost and shipping option via DriveThruRPG.
If you’re super keen and based in the States then a $1,500 pledge will have all sorts of perks including the author, Greg Predmore, flying to run a game for you.
The game mechanics use a d12 and six stats (Bash, Brave, Run, Know, Laugh and Jerk). The system recognises goblins that a cowards but not especially frail and multiple character generation systems.
