Congratulations to the Demon Lord, Walter Sheppard, for sending the soul of our Future King of Zog to the Boneyard to be judged!

I do think, however, we'd prefer someone with easy access to breath of life, and be prepared to use it several times (per encounter?). Whether that's on a scroll or whatever, that doesn't matter.

How open are you to traveling with a goblin? Have you ever had to keep one alive?

This is why I keep Master Garble's fingernails trimmed.

I believe up thread it was stated that having a 7 intelligence qualified our little future King of Zog as having a "normal" intellect. I, believe in his case, a combination of 7 wisdom and 5 charisma make it very difficult for the little guy to properly convey that average intellectual prowess.

Thanks Nosig! Totally picking that one up for Garble.

Dead Garble or Confused Garble.

Not sure which is worse.

well, let's look at the possiblities...

25% "act normally" (this is Garble - please define normal)
25% "Do nothing but babble incoherently" (see note above for act normally)
25% "Deal 1d8 points of damage + Str modifier to self with item in hand" (some people would pay to see this)
25% "Attack nearest creature (for this purpose, a familiar counts as part of the subject's self)" (is this another act normally?)

I need to put in a disclaimer here and say I have not (yet) played any games with Garble - and have formed my opinion from hear-say...

Master Garble enjoys being read to as long as it involves a heavy dose of fire and blood.

25% to act normal. I believe in this case normal would be better described as "without self control."
25% chance to do nothing but babble incoherently. I'm pretty sure this is close to his normal percentage of incoherent ranting.
25% chance to deal 1d8 points of damage plus Str modifier to self with item in hand. This is going to be difficult as he usually doesn't have anything in his hands. His mouth, on the other hand is often full (and we're all thankful for that).
25% chance to attack nearest creature. Please see "act normal."

I find it interesting that while confused he can deal more damage to himself than he can to another creature. 1d8 is quite a bit for the little would-be king. He usually only deals about 1d6+8 damage per round, or about the same as a first level Valeros.

+4 untyped (Grab (Ex) special ability)

Funny. Master Garble has a poor charisma and everyone attacks him on site.

I dream of the day Master Garble wear pants.

Lord Garble is often too preoccupied with the spoils of war or the next closed door to notice he needs healing. As such, he often forgets to ask for assistance.

I would argue, however, that it's in the party's best interest to keep my little master alive.

That's because Master Garble gets a +4 from the grab special ability. That cheating little b******.

Grand Lodge

Master Garble just runs around biting things. Seems to work, mostly. If he's tried to eat it before and it didn't taste well (or excessively hurt), he'll avoid it.

He's been prone to tie up a demon in chains and leave it, only to have it teleport away the next round. If others in the party who are more knowledgeable would assist my lord and share that knowledge, instead of spewing out things about "weaknesses, vulnerabilities and special attacks," perhaps he could be more effective.

Bottom line, just ask yourself, WWGD?

Congrats John! It's been a pleasure working with you! All of your projects and ideas are fantastic and have helped PFS grow in tremendous ways. Now, if you would be so kind to go grapple a faction leader. ;-P

To be fair, Master Garble only survived that terrible place because his companions were so well prepared. I would go as far to say that they survived despite traveling with a goblin.

Does the cloak still work if any symbols of Iomedae have been overwritten (scribbled out most likely) AND is worn after being submerged in the blood of a horse? My master would like to know.

Have you considered the shield cloak from Ultimate Equipment? My bard is totally getting one.

Master Garble has been asking for snakes on his shoulders (Pauldrons of the Serpent).

I'm inclined to buy him some. Besides being the latest fashion in the River Kingdoms...er, I mean Zog, he tends to provoke excessive opportunistic attacks. And I also hear they will make it harder for his prey to escape the clutches of his jaws.

Poog think Zarongel is the best!

He help burn things and heal the rest.
So, naturally Poog agree with this plan!

AND remember... Poog also stab you with knife if

Master Garble is unimpressed with your song. He says you should join him be Grand Shaman of Zog.

You sir, need to start your own Goblin Faction...

Master Garble will start the "Zog" faction once he has collected enough followers. One day our hopes are to rival the illustrious Sczanri faction, but unfortunately, Absalom's finest lately don't seem to send us on many missions that include would-be followers (goblins).

I think it is epic to have self impossed handicaps on yourself. Honestly I think that is awesome Garble can not read.

I refuse to buy wands of cure light because they make the game too easy, and one of my friends told me he was going to do that. I told him that is the second stupidest thing I ever heard. He asked what the first was and I said me not buying them.

You play for fun and what you did proves it kyle. Thats the game right there. For fun.

To be fair, Master Garble chooses not to observe the stolen words of others.

Master Garble approves.

Master Garble insists that we should converse less and bite more.

*whispers* Surprise, I know...

Garble is correct; this adventure interacts oddly with goblin PCs.

Garble, you aren't ... writing, are you?

I beg your forgiveness, M'Lord. I was merely translating and transcribing my Lord Garble's responses to the absurd accusations that Mistress Murgmo, Chosen of Zarongel, was murdered by a bunch of hapless Pathfinders. She is indeed alive and well and sharing the close company of our very own Hero of the Licktoads.
