The Goblin Empire

This table can be used for random encounters inside the Goblin Empire. Roll d100 for encounters outside the cities. For encounters inside Gaxen Kane and other goblin cities, roll d4 for the first digit and d10 for the second digit.
On this table "goblin" indicates an ordinary goblin or goblin warrior, depending on context.

All references to Fiend Folio monsters refer to the redone versions of these--(Bloodhawks as exploding chemical weapons, etc.)

*Indicates the creature is used as a mount if rolled as a member of a goblin cohort or in a city.

  1. I'm in the middle of jotting down notes for my own goblin empire. I get the feeling your goblins are very different to mine, but I still think I'll steal that "sacred maggot procession".

  2. I agree about the maggot procession. That one line of text sure does fire up the imagination.

  3. I love goblins. My favourite humanoid 'baddy'.

  4. I think I'm going to mess around with this for a haunted forest. I'm thinking lots of encounter checks, 6 on a d6 will be (mostly) this sheet and a 5 will be a natural obstacle (climb checks, hunting traps, air-born spores from hallucinogenic mushrooms) then have a few (4-5) important things they have to do, all while not getting lost (won't happen).

  5. Until I looked at the first picture and read
    "crow-headed man" I hadn't been picturing the interior of a Goblin city as something out of Hieronymous Bosch. Now I am. That's awesome.
