The Licktoads, once the great and fierce goblin tribe in Brinestump Marsh, were defeated by human adventurers! All that remains of the tribe are its four goblin "heroes"—Reta Bigbad the fighter, Chuffy Lickwound the rogue, Poog the cleric of Zarongel, and Mogmurch the alchemist. Homeless and bored, they left their swampy homeland to join the neighboring goblin tribe, the Birdcrunchers.

The good news is that the Birdcrunchers are willing to let the goblin heroes join their tribe.

The better news is that the Birdcrunchers have heard of these four, and want one of them to become their new chieftain.

The bad news is that before the goblins can join, they'll need to endure a series of dangerous and humiliating tests. Very dangerous. Very humiliating.

The worse news is that lately Birdcruncher chieftains have had really short lifespans—they're being killed by the pet fire-breathing boar of a local ogre who wants the Birdcruncher land as his own.

Can the four heroes of the now-dead Licktoad tribe save the Birdcrunchers and, in so doing, become their new leaders?

"We Be Goblins Too!" is an adventure for four 3rd-level goblin characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest roleplaying game. The adventure takes place near the coastal town of Sandpoint in the Pathfinder campaign setting, and serves as a sequel to "We Be Goblins," Paizo's popular 2011 Free RPG Day adventure!

Written by Richard Pett.

Lovely goblins too

*****

Pretty similar to We be Goblins, but even better than the part 1.

The first part is goblins' tasks, the four cute little fluffy again :)

The second part is fighting against an ogre druid and his animals, not simply combats but also many ways to use the map, hit and run again! And I think the TPK potential is lesser than part 1, the BBEG has some annoying abilities but not killing little guys such easily.

Altough it's part 2 of the goblin line, but play them seperately, or you would think them too similar and lose some charm.


*****

A worthy follow-up to "We be Goblins". We all had a great laugh playing this module.

My suggestions to players:
- don't play the two modules back to back. The second one has a similar structure (but with the sessions I played being weeks apart, that was no problem)
- only play with people who love a bit of mayhem, funny voices and setting fire to almost everything. The roleplay this module provides is just too funny for words.

We be Goblins, you be food! *tries to set fire to her own review*


A tale of (three and one) exploding goblins

*****

We played We Be Goblins a while back, and because there were 7 of us, we figured out how to make level 1 goblins.

Now we continued with those characters and after examining the pregens they seemed to have about 3k gold, which we used to update our We Be Goblins goblins.

As with the previous one we had a load of fun.

tests:

The first test was won by a large margin by my gun scavenger who took a lead in the first round by using her pistol with the scatter property. Some hilarity ensued as I accidently shot one of the other player goblins, one of the player goblins shot the goblin dog of yet another player, who then attacked the player who shot him.
The second test was another bout of hilarity, with my gunscavenger getting 2 stirges on her, getting 5 con damage, one of the player goblins running off with a stirge with the words: "If one survives no-one wins test!"
Then the third test. This ended very very badly. My gunslinger had her black powder safely in powder horns. Her 20 cartridges however were not. After initiative was rolled, my gunslinger was first up. Fail fort save (rolled a 1), so take fire damage. Then all my cartridges took fire damage and started going off. Working with the GM we went with giving them a save, however I rolled really bad, starting a chain reaction. End result: 40 damage with a reflex save for half which caused three goblins to die (my gunslinger was one of them) and the pie to be blown up. One of the items the others got in the loot was a scroll of reincarnate, so one of the dead goblins got reincarnated into a half-orc and the other two picked new characters.

Then we finally went on the real adventure.
adventure:

Things went fairly smoothly, killing the charging boar before it did too much damage, then finding the farmstead and burning the words.
One of us snuck into the overturned barge, and used coup de grace to kill the boar sleeping there, however that woke up Squeely Nord who started to make a lot of noise waking up the house.
Now to the second exploding goblin (again, mine). As the pregen alchemist I claimed the necklace of fireballs and the bead of force. After Poog failed to damage the ogre (but set fire to the house) I tossed the bead of force at the ogre, injuring him, but he managed to save against the resilient sphere effect. Next up he tosses a flaming sphere at me. Once again failing my reflex save, I have now a fully charged necklace of fireballs also needing a save, which ofcourse also failed. 31 damage from the fireballs and 14 damage from the flaming sphere later, another exploded goblind. This time however only 1 other goblin was in range and that one barely survived (0 hp left) who then got healed back up to continu the fight, which we eventually won.

All in all a very enjoyable afternoon


Fun

****( )

This module is a whole ton of fun and short to boot. I think the only reason this one gets a four is the comparison to We Be Goblins which is just amazing.


An excellent second installment

*****

My perspective on this scenario is as a player and a GM. Be warned, spoilers may follow!

Story
The story is the continuation of the first We Be Goblins! The characters have become heroes of their village, but its dire fate put them out of a home and a tribe - time to get a new one! The trials are indeed reminiscent of the ones from the first installment, but with interesting new settings. I actually preferred the ones from WBG2 to those of the first one (except maybe riding Squealy Nord). The rest of the story would straightforward... if the characters weren't goblins! Honestly, I don't expect two run-throughs of this module to be alike, since the 'goblin factor' comes in and makes the story become unpredictable! It's what I love about these modules, along with roleplay of course.
Story score: 5/5

Roleplay
Roleplay opportunities are amazing here, and as for the first one, the best opportunities lie with the relationships among the characters themselves. This is a huge boon to the module. NPCs (especially a certain pig) are exceptionally fun too!
Roleplay score: 5/5

Encounters
The fights in this module will force the goblins to cooperate, but still allow them to do crazy actions and still succeed (which is the point of playing a goblin... except for the success part). I loved the last encounter because it's set in different phases that the GM can alter, making the environment really react to the little green terrors' actions. What will make them truly unforgettable are the tools the goblins will have at their disposal.
Encounters score: 4/5

Mechanics
The mechanics of the trials are alright and keep the game light on rules while preserving fun. That's what we want when we play goblins!
Mechanics score: 4/5

This module is simply one every Pathfinder player should experience, along with the first installment. Get them and let your inner goblin out!
Total: 5/5

I'm sure there's a good reason we can't preorder free RPG day titles. Could someone explain it to me?

Our arrangement with Free RPG Day precludes us from selling it until July 1. We don't want presales to undermine customer participation in Free RPG Day itself.

I believe the reason is that the contractual obligations with the Free RPG Day organizers preclude offering the item for sale until a certain date.

EDIT: Ninja'ed definitively by Vic!

Roasty Nord.

Not to be confused with Roasted Nord.

Will it ... will it ... will it be PFS friendly??

I am hoping this will follow the tradition of the last several years where the RPG Day module can be run for PFS credit.

Of course, if it isn't, it won't stop the folks at the local lodge from running/playing it ... repeatedly ... ;)

EDIT: And I am so psyched that Richard Pett is doing the sequel to his original. Expecting much zaniness and goblin goodness ... evilness ... mayhem ... you know what I mean. ;)

Shadow Lodge

They survived?
I've ran the first one several times, so I know of a few people who'd happily join in a sequel.

If it's PFS-friendly, so much the better!


Oh this will be another fantastic one-shot to run! No mention of The Towering Gruk though... my player will be sad his Goblin Barbarian didn't survive the aftermath of the first module.

As the only group (to my knowledge) not to completely blow themselves to bits, at the end of the previous chapter, I do hope my Mogmurch is allowed to still possess a big box of fireworks.

I'm sure we won't have needed all of them, to send the chief's hut into orbit.

When I played it, I (as Poog) fell in battle, but everyone else made it back.

When I ran it, one player decided to step away from the BBEG and see what was behind Door #2.

It was:
Cuddles, of course. ;)

TPK shortly thereafter, but without any "blowing to bits".

Yup. My wife will need this one as well. Next thing you'll put up are more plush Goblins, since we have the others. :)

Any chance we might see a small Pawns set for the two modules? ;)

Given that the first We Be Goblins is down to the last few copies, and the economics of reprinting a Free RPG Day adventure are not good, I wouldn't hold my breath. But have you seen the We Be Goblins plastic minis?

I made not one but two mistakes with the link. Fixed in my post and yours.

SQUEALY NORD OR ELSE!!!!

Hahahaha :D

Y'know, we were told there was something in store involving Squealy Nord....it looks like he took several levels in Badass, looking at that cover.

So much freakin' yes! Mogmurch and the tooth of Nord shall rise again!

I am so happy about this. In our Jade Regent campaign we continued to run the goblins as a side adventure beyond what was in the first We Be Goblins. The goblin PC's all survived with the exception of Chuffy and escaped into the Bleaklow Moor after they were hunted down by Shalelu (who killed off all the other Licktoads that survived the events of Jade Regent in our campaign). This module sounds like it will be the perfect follow-up.

Not to be a big downer or anything, but I thought it said in Jade Regent that the hero goblins were killed by the undead who invaded the village? Not that I am complaining, because We Be Goblins was all kinds of awesome. XD

Nord has a crucial role to play, you could say pivotal, or pigotal...ah, maybe not.

Pigotal, ha!

Huzzah!


I'm new to all this! Our Local Friendly Game Store (LFGS) is participating in FreeRPG day. Does that mean they can order this exclusively for FreeRPG day? What is the lead time for them to get it into the hands of GMs to produce this for FreeRPG day? I don't care if I have to sign an NDA so I can *only* do this for that specific day, but I do care a great deal about a) can I get it at all, b) what is the lead time so I can prepare a good game?

I cheerfully welcome a link that points the way. I want to know as much as I can before I walk into the LFGS babbling like a total clueless idiot. If I can show I know what I'm talking about, and that I've already been GM'ing for PFS, I'm pretty sure the LFGS that is already participating will be happy to work with me so I can produce the game on that date.

Thanks for pointing the way. I already have our PFS group excited about a run of We Be Goblins. :)


A long-time PFS guy confirmed the game is only released 'day of', and that he is planning with the LFGS to have both "Goblins" games on that day. I plan to coordinate with him to see what we can do to have great games that attract people to PFS.

Cheers!
