Free Comic Book Day! Have a Free PDF!

Happy free comic book day! Over here, you’ll see our growing collection of downloadable PDFs, each priced at 4 or 5 bucks. Today, Danielle and I are giving away free PDF copies of Goblins Book 1, which contains a bunch of little bonus thingys (including a list of “spoilers” that are no longer spoilers at all, because they’ve all happened by now). But in order to give this PDF away for free, we have to manually enter your email into the “100% discount” section over at Drivethru. So here’s what we’re going to do. In a little while, I’m going to be drawing live while Danielle hangs out in the chatroom of the live feed. Just pop into the chatroom and ask for a free copy of the Goblins Book 1 PDF. Danielle will immediately get your email address from you, enter it into the Drivethru site and you should instantly have your coupon code and link for the free download. We LOVE free comic book day, so we’re prepared to sit at our computers and do this for most of the day, so come on in and say hello!

The Goblins Alternate Realities Card Game

The Kickstarter for the new Goblins card game launches this month! Here’s the Facebook page. Keep in mind that the more ‘likes’ we get on Facebook, the more bonus material will be included in the game when it’s released. So even if you don’t have any money to help out, you can still make the game even more awesome! The full list of bonus material and various stretch goals will be detailed when the Kickstarter goes live on May 21. I think you guys will really like this game. We’ve been playing it and tweaking it a lot and I think we’ve all (Evertide Games and us) come up with something that is addictive and fun. The point of this game is to create your own story with it. Familiar characters from Goblins start to change, depending on how you play them and story elements start to form. Because your game is an alternate reality to the comic, it’s technically canon. Examples…

In one game, we saw Dies Horribly arm himself with Kore’s crossbows and armour and pump all of his XP into combat, becoming Dies KOREbly, the most evil, feared creature in the realm. The only way to kill him, was for a group of other characters to gang up on him and honestly, everyone was too chicken to try (like the comic, your characters in the game can die) so everyone mostly ran away from him. We’ve had Fumbles follow Big Ears around, annoying him (winning charm challenges against him) and earn XP by doing so. Fumbles’ player then pumped all of that XP into more charm, which meant that whether Fumbles wanted to annoy you or win your heart, he was pretty much unstoppable. In another game, a very clever player (me) decided to make an all combat party. So Kore, Minmax and Complain Of Names joined forces. It was a wall of paladin badassnes and goblin/human raging. It was awesome! I lost that game, actually. But up until I lost, I was amazing! I have yet to see anyone combine Big Ears and Kore together… with the Axe of Prissan… and the Shield of Wonder. I’m going to give myself nightmares.

Anyways, keep reading this blog, watching the Facebook page or follow me on Twitter to be kept up to date on Goblins: Alternate Realities.

As always, thanks for reading.
