EN World Review – The Goblin Corps by Ari Marmell

goblincorps coverHappy 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:

Review of The Goblin Corps by Ari Marmell

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!
