Enhanced Goblinoids, Gnolls, Kobolds & Orcs – an Eventyr Games Compendium


Enhanced Goblinoids, Gnolls, Kobolds & Orcs – an Eventyr Games Compendium

There’s classic fantasy foes, and then there’s goblins, gnolls, kobolds and orcs – these are the bread and butter of any classic Dungeons & Dragons-game. Hell, at this point you can barely call yourself an adventurer if you haven’t struck down at least a handful of these monstrous humanoids.

However, if you’re just starting up your third or fourth 5E campaign, you may be looking at the goblin’s statblock and thinking: ‘ungh, so we’re back to this then, huh?’. There just isn’t a whole lot of options when it comes to these murderous peeps, and not much in the way of tactical depth either.

In this document, we aim to solve this problem, as we take a close look at bugbears, hobgoblins, goblins, gnolls, kobolds and orcs, giving them all additional actions in combat. The point isn’t to make these monsters more powerful – although versatility is rarely a weakness – but to make them more dynamic, flavorful and tactically challenging for both the DM and the players.

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.
