I'll see your 6s and raise you a pair of Goblins


Hey all,

So instead of another snore-worthy "I'm working all the time" post, I decided to share something most of you could actually use! So, today's post is a pair of goblins named Krivik and Nibba (both of whom were originally designed by Will Copper). These two, aside a small contingent of regular goblins, appear in the upcoming Rune of Hope adventure.

While these goblins are nasty, they are far from all that I plan to release on site. In fact, over the next few months, I plan to release more material, both for Rhune and O7, as well as a few other things I have up my sleeve, as well. Of course, if you've been following what's going on, you know I currently have a Kickstarter going - one that Ben, Brian, and I brainstormed - called Design Camp. With this Kickstarter, we're taking patrons on a tour of what we do behind the curtains. We're at 40% funding, which is pretty good for the first week. At our current rate, we'll definitely fund and, as a result, will be able to give backers a lot of cool stuff.

For now, however, it's goblins! Cheers, Jaye
