First Day of CRITmas

First Day of CRITmas

On the first day of CRITmas my players got from me…

…a goblin with a bag of TNT.

I dig Goblins. They are truly underutilized creatures in D&D. Most DMs leave them behind as the players around level 3 or so. Essentially goblins power out. I enjoy reskinning different monsters in the book to be goblins. It keeps those who know the books and monsters well on their toes and it’s fun to come up with new ways a DM can make a monster silly/fun/something new.

A goblin with a bag of TNT

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, changed out the type of damage in the bag or traps—for example, TNT: 1d6 fire & 1d8 bludgeoning damage instead of the flask of acid.
  • Also, I thought giving this Rudolph rider a trained or awoken mount would be wonderfully horrific!—use the Deer or Elk from the Monster Manual.

Let me know how it goes for you!
