Goblin Errands + PDF
Goblin Errands is a no-prep RPG for 2 to 4 goblins and one Tall Person. Together you'll struggle to complete seemingly mundane tasks for your community.
Buying vegetables at the market or procuring the services of a local wizard to get your wise leader unstuck from his chamber pot becomes tricky if you live in a world made for folk much bigger and stronger than you.
And on top of that, you have only a single Braincell to work with and one that you have to share with your fellow goblins. Even otherwise ordinary, everyday tasks turn into hilarious misadventures.
This is a zany and family-friendly role-playing game. It doesn't need a lot of lore knowledge or features complex rules. Instead, it focuses on telling fun and funny stories. This makes it perfectly suited for younger players or families.
But even experienced RPG players can enjoy it. They can make fun of the tropes and cliches of fantasy gaming and its no-prep nature makes it easy to pick up and run in-between other sessions.
This zine features:
- 8 different goblin playbooks:
The Rowdy, the Rascal, the Whiz-Wart, the Rambler, the Ratter, the High-Speaker, the Square and the Nibbler
- 6 goblin body stats: Hands, Legs, Eyes, Mouth, Frame, and Heart
- D6-based complication-friendly resolution system
- Single, shared Braincell mechanic to reward silly and funny ideas
- Errand generator to enable no-prep play
This spur-of-the-moment idea was inspired by both the wholesome TTRPG Under Hill, By Water, and the video game Untitled Goose Game.
