Happy hump-day, fellow gamers, and I hope that this week finds you all well! It’s been a quiet week for me so far, but full of cool new sourcebooks, supplements, and even novels to be read for upcoming reviews! I’ve been getting new products from a wide-range of publishers, and I’m excited to be bringing these to the attention of the gaming community at large.
I’ve been sent several novels, which while not exactly role-playing games, are very much inspired and inspiring to RPG gamers! I just recently finished one from famed RPG author and designer, Ari Marmell, who is no stranger to the D&D community. He has contributed his imagination and writing skills to many 3rd edition, OGL, and 4E books and supplements, and has also written a few novels in his day.
So today I have an EN World review of The Goblin Corps, a story written with an evil twist, taken from the perspective of a gang of goblins working for a lich! To read the full details of the review, please click the link below to head over to EN World and get the full story about this dark fantasy novel:
I wish I could give a glowing endorsement of The Goblin Corps, but I’d be stretching the truth to claim this novel was a page turner. It felt like an evil campaign turned into a novel, and I’ve noticed that evil campaigns tend to be short-lived novelties at best – and friendship-breaking angst-fests at worst! Evil main characters just can’t hold my attention for long, and I think they work best in small doses, like a short story or novella. So over 500 pages of goblins in action is more than anyone really needs…
So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
