We Be Goblins!

The goblins are on the loose! Unleash the homicidal hijinks of Golarion’s most maniacal menaces with this guide to all things goblin. Infamous for their unpredictable attacks, catchy raiding songs, and fear of horses, goblins blend mischief and murderousness like no other monsters. But there’s more to goblins than dogslicers and games of killgull. Now you can join in the quirky carnage with everything you need to know about goblins, whether you plan to do battle against their unpredictable tribes, or lead them as a goblin hero!

Goblins of Golarion presents a player-friendly overview of the favorite foes of the Pathfinder campaign setting, along with new rules and information to help players customize goblin characters in both flavor and mechanics.

    Inside this book, you'll find:
  • The secrets of goblin life, from their strange anatomy and deranged psychology to their baffling culture and hilarious quirks
  • An overview of goblin homelands across the Inner Sea Region, along with details on dozens of unique goblin tribes
  • New ways to fight like a goblin, with equipment and feats to help goblins skirmish and scavenge like only goblins can
  • Revelations on goblin religion, from their unique worship of Lamashtu, the Mother of Monsters, to their race’s infamous hero-god
  • Insights into the questionable and grotesque world of goblin arcana, with new goblin-made spells and magic items
  • Rules, traits, and advice for playing goblin characters, giving you everything you need to unleash goblin insanity all your own
  • New goblin songs, games, and tricks, and even more goblin madness!

This Pathfinder Player Companion is set in the Pathfinder campaign setting and works best with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game or the 3.5 version of the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying game, but can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

Still need more goblins? Check out We Be Goblins!, an insane Pathfinder Module designed just for goblin characters!

Written by Richard Pett

Each bimonthly 32-page Pathfinder Companion contains several player-focused articles exploring the volume’s theme as well as short articles with innovative new rules for social, magic, religious, and combat-focused characters, as well as traits to better anchor the player to the campaign.

Best Player Companion Yet

5/5

Goblins of Golarion is a wonderful collection of background, rules, and flavor. In combination with classic monsters revisited, We Be Goblins, and the various goblin encounters in APs and modules I am much better equipped to create flavorful goblin encounters and now thanks to this book make better goblin PCs and villains.
My favorite chapter of the book is the tribes; for a campaign I am running I had thrown some goblins in and I was really curious if it worked with existing tribe locations; thanks to this book I can pick a specific tribe and use that to play the encounters accordingly.
Thanks Richard, James, and Hal for writing such an amazing supplement.


Loved it!

5/5

I've been waiting for this one ever since it was announced. Since I've been playing a goblin in one of the PbPs here on the boards, it was near and dear to me. All I can say is that I loved pretty much the entire book. Paizo's take on goblins is great; I love the meaner, more evil "Gremlin"-y vibe they give off.
My only gripe is in regards to the favored class bonus for goblin rogues - it really seems like there's no reason to take it over the standard bonus. Still, if one line of text is my only complaint, that's pretty darn good.


Very Please

5/5

Was looking forward to this book ever since playing "We Be Goblins!" on Free RPG Day. Read the entire book first day, it is a very quick read. I was please with the amount of additional flavor that had been added to my favorite green race. Also it answered some of my previously unanswered questions about goblin society and how they view religion. The specialized Goblin feats and magic was a huge bonus as well. What made me happiest though was that it almost perfectly with the guesses I had made about this small green menace's way of life.


AWESOME!!

5/5

I just read it cover to cover. Lots of fun and great ideas for memorable encounters. Full of background information on what makes goblins goblins, plus equipment, class roles, and traits. Details on a plethora of goblin tribes with a focus on Isger, Mediogalti, The Shackles and Varisia. But WAIT! There's more...Goblin Feats, Gods, Spells, Magic items, and a goblin PC How to guide. Really great stuff!!

Was Limp Lash supposed to be a level 2 spell? It seems like it should be a level 6 or 7 spell.

To be safe I just double-checked the source since I just added this one to the site today and I've been in a mad frenzy of updating there was a decent chance I might have oops'ed it but apparently not... it's 2nd level in the book... and in the immortal words of George Takei... OH MY!

I came looking for this thread just to see if Limp Lash had been erratad. I'm wondering if it's supposed to be a named penalty (like an enhancement penalty) that doesn't stack? You can keep focusing it every round to try to increase the penalty by rolling higher, but not adding to it...that's my best guess anyway. Or a level typo.


Will Paizo be making a reprint of this? I'd love to have a physical copy of it. Pathfinder goblins are so interesting and fun. It would be a shame to have this missing from my collection.

We don't have any plans to reprint at this time.

Understandable. Thank you for answering. Considering the price of this pamphlet on the secondary market I think the PDF will do.

Is there another goblin supplement you would recommend that's still in print? My daughter loves loves loves Pathfinder goblins and I'd like to get her a book on them to go with the plushies.

The Pathfinder Goblins! comics, along with We Be Goblins! adventures, and an entry from Classic Monsters Revisited should help sate her appetite. :D
