Fantasy games are filled with the magnificent exploits of mighty wizards, powerful warriors and god-fearing knights in armor. Ours isn’t…
Dark Hold Goblin Adventures is dedicated to the small groveling races which scratch out an existence in the dark catacombs through which other heroes stride like unto gods. Can you survive as one of a lost culture of Goblins living in the abandoned tombs of a long forgotten empire?
Dark Hold Goblin Adventures is a Savage Worlds compatible sourcebook (You will need a copy of the Savage Worlds core Rulebook) allowing players and game masters to run a campaign revolving around low level goblin characters.
Inside you will find a detailed history of the Dark Hold campaign setting as well as new character classes and templates to use Goblins as player characters. There is also a short adventure to whet your whistle for the challenge of playing low level goblins in a world of high level dangers.

Jacob Wood has been playing tabletop games since he was about 12 years old, and — together with his two best friends — designed his first RPG when he was 14. Simply titled “The Arena Game,” it was rudimentary at best, but It was a sign of great things to come. Today Jacob lives in Oregon and designs games with an eye on accessibility. He’s legally blind and knows many of the challenges involved in playing tabletop games with a disability, but has decided to adapt rather than to give up his hobby and his dream.
Ruben Smith-Zempel is a freelance game, graphic, and print designer. He’s been working in the RPG industry for well over a decade now, helping companies big and small wrangle raw text and napkin drawings into finished projects. In his spare time, he enjoys your average nerdy pursuits in addition to hiking, bicycling, and pretending that he’s still a fine artist (poorly thrown pots a specialty). He lives in Portland, OR with his lovely wife (and fellow gamer), and their two keyboard crossing cats.
Lizard has been an RPG gamer since 1978, and started writing professionally for the industry around 2000, working on Dying Earth, more D20 products than he can recall (but is especially proud of Iron Lords Of Jupiter and his work on the B5 RPG), GURPS, Hillfolk, Savage Worlds, and probably some other things he's forgotten, his age being what it is. He is often helped in his writing by a black cat who likes to florp on his keyboard, an orange cat who likes to chew on wires, and a wife who is that rare type of spouse that is willing to put up with being married to a writer. He recently completed an epic walkthrough/analysis of the Arduin trilogy.
John Dotegowski is an artist/illustrator who has lived in the western New York area most of his life. Like most of his kind he has been drawing and painting since he was a wee child. He started out normal enough but at some point became fascinated with the fantasy, science fiction and horror genres. This would prompt helpful critiques from his mother when he would show her his paintings like " It's nice...for what it is. But, couldn't you maybe paint something like flowers." He's a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and works in both digital and traditional media. He's done mostly game related art for companies ranging from trading card games to rule book covers as well as novel covers and illustrations plus numerous private commissions.

Risks and challenges
Our Risks and Challenges are very low for this project. We are working with professional writers, artists, sculptors and casters that we have worked with for a long time. We have been producing miniatures and games for over 12 years and have a lot of experience in castings and publishing. Unforeseen problems may occur, but we believe we have the skill, customer communication and experience to handle themLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
