Prepare to be your tricksiest, most mischievous self in this "cozy heist" that is 100% delight. In "Goblin Heist," players sneak into a sleepy human village as... why, goblins, of course!

OBS_lysa.pngFeaturing goblin names like Stubtoe and Chunkz, the scene is set for a silly roleplaying romp, and the clock is ticking. You'll find fun mechanics and rules, such as an Adventurer Pursuit meter, as the party scrambles to steal as many cozy items as they can. Will you be the one to bring home a pillow, a blanket, or shiny new mittens? Kai Linder's adventure is pure fun to read and promises a session (and a goodie bag) filled to bursting with laughs and ridiculous antics.

My players and I had an absolute BLAST with this! We're running The Lost Mine of Phandelver, and I decided to play this out in the small town of Phandalin. While the adventurers were out on an adventure, the goblins they had befriended and two [...]

This adventurer is really really nice. I've just ran it for one of my groups and they went to town with it. Goblins are awesome anyway. But Sweet Baboo filled his diaper with well you know. And Sneako than switched a pillow with the full daiper un [...]

Ran this session over Google Hangouts, of all things, while quarantined; had originally prepped this for a cancelled con. Highly recommended, high-hijinks, heist. You do need to make sure to get buyin from the group that this is a heist as a typical mu [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
