I dig Goblins, they are a really under utilized race of villains and funions in D&D. Most DMs leave them behind as the players round level 3 or so. The basically power out the Goblins. I instead reskin different monsters in the book to be Goblins, partly to hrow players who know the books off, partly cause I have players PLAYING goblins who level up and want to have goblins who can match them [Watch Goblins & Galleons starting January 7]. I decided after my guest spot on DMs Block 169 that I should put my skillz where my mouth is.
Thus, I give you my 12 Days of CRITmas – Goblin edition.
On the first day of CRITmas my players got from me…
…a goblin with a bag of TNT.
So this goblin is super cool and had to be shared. I’m not really sure where l found it – if you know, let me know so I can give it credit!
For this goblin l used the Kobold Inventor from Volo’s Guide to Monsters. Used the same stat block and changed out the types of damage in the bag or traps the Kobold had: TNT (fire) damage instead of the acid damage. And I think putting this guy on a mount (use the Deer from the Monster Manual – or the Elk if you want to up the CR a bit)
Let me know how it goes for you!
