Goblin Errands is a no-prep RPG for 2 to 4 goblins and one Tall Person. Together you'll go on comical (mis)adventures trying to complete seemingly mundane tasks as you struggle with a world not designed for you. 

You've just joined a new family of goblins and you are determined to prove yourself useful. Clearly, the best way to do so is by running errands for the community: Buying vegetables at the market or procuring the services of a local wizard to get your wise leader unstuck from his chamber pot. 

Unfortunately as a goblin you live in a world made for folk much bigger and stronger than you. And on top of that you have only a single Braincell to work with - and one that you have to share with your fellow goblins. Even otherwise ordinary everyday tasks turn into hilarious challenges.

Absolutely fantastic game! Perfect for one shots (90 to 120 minutes) and really plays up the dumbest parts of RPGs in a fun and weirdly relatable way.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I am happy to hear you're enjoying the game...

I just ran my first round of this, and what an absolute delight. Describing the goblin-eye view of events led to utter madness (the goblins eventually determined that a banana wasn't a fruit at all, because fruits are round and juicy, and instead it must be a kind of soft cheese), and looking for places to inject kindness and humor into the proceedings made for such a warm experience.

So happy to hear this! Sounds like a perfect session!

I would very much like to try this in my home writing experiment with my students this year. Would it be possible to get a community copy? Thanks!

If so my email is Sharyna at gmail dot com … if not, I understand! 

Hey! Can you reach out via e-mail and let me know what you're planning to do? You can use the contact form at the www.sharkbombs.com website.

In the extras, the feats are not named

I know. It's just a copy of a playbook so the feats are not the point of it. The point is to provide people with a playbook layout so they can make their own. The idea is to replace the feats with ones you come up with. It's not an extra playbook.

Okay, thanks

I haven't playtested this one yet, but the whole idea is so adorable. I fell in love with it on first sight. For me these goblins feel a bit like clowns in a good way (in their heart - like really trying to accomplish things but living in a difficult world that's not made for them).

If you were wondering about ableism: I found a note in the book about that, and the whole game isn't meant to be ableistic. It's not only but also about loving people as they are, as I see it. I hope I'll be able to play this soon!

Thank you for the kind words! 💚

Me and my friends are really excited to try this out! Plus, I love my shoddy goblin sketch, so I recommend the service.

Thank you so much for the kind words and for the support!

thanks! Happy to hear it. Let me know if you've got any feedback!
