Wightbred, I find your goblin ideas intriguing and wish to subscribe to your goblin newsletter.

I also would really dig drawing a lot of goblins.  Look me up (http://www.edheil.com/illustration/) and drop me a line if you're interested.

(BTW, in terms of additional inspiration and incredible art, look into the Tunnels & Trolls pocket adventure Goblin Lake, in which you play a goblin; it's illustrated by perhaps my favorite fantasy illustrator EVAR, Liz Danforth, and it's available as part of the free T&T rules at RPGNow http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=54407  -- the cover's not in the PDF, but you can see it here: http://www.gamebooks.org/show_item.php?id=2735 )

Our newsletter has many subscribers so happy to add you. But be aware most of our subscribers are goblins who just use the newsletter's high quality paper for fire starting and runs to the bushes.

Love your Troll Babe work, Ron is spot on about the shading. And thanks for the heads up on Goblin Lake.

My partner in crime, Epic Fail, is doing a bunch of art right now, but we could always use more so I'll flick you an email. A quick heads up (because we don't want to stuff anyone around) is that we are doing this for love not cash, so our ability to pay the rates someone of your ability would demand at this stage of the project is pretty limited.

I saw some of Epic Fail's goblins and I like them very much!

Because I've got a soft spot for goblins that goes all the way back to my childhood and the goblin lake solo dungeon, I'd be down with contributing art gratis to a project that its itself a labor  of love. :)  Just don't tell anybody I'm giving it away; they'll all want some!

Well, that's just awesome. Would love to see a picture or two from you on the basis that you are happy that we wait and agree payment if and when we publish them.

Will drop you that email now so we can talk offline.

Edit: I have failed in my quest to find your email address, but I did see your awesome Troll Face along the way.

These are two pieces of gold Ed.

And I was worried people wouldn't get this reference. You should submit that to KoDT comic page. You just need a funny comment...

I'm glad!  I am really out of touch with KODT.  Long story, but we had to move last November and I don't have a FLG(or C)S anymore.  So I'm like six months behind!

I figure I'll buy some collections at GenCon and try to catch up.

Not sure what to do next for the goblins -- I'd like to get some goblin babes in there, too, even if Gertrude turned out not to be one.  :)  I'd also like to get some essential Goblin interaction, some toadying and domination and stuff.  Hm.    Glad you like it!

I finally finished the first batch of the career types for Goblin World.

here they all collected together, a pack of nasty little buggers.

Goblin Sorcerer


Goblin Shaman


Goblin Skirmisher


Orc Marauder


Goblin Raider


Goblin Extortionist


Goblin Thief


Guess the next step is to update the playbooks!

Guys - this stuff is so good I've made a separate thread so we can focus on the art. Will send you an email later today about other images I'm keen to get.

Ed - I left goblin gender out of GW to allow more potential hookups between characters and give the players more space to determine goblin reproduction in their game. However, would love to see some strong female characters like your awesome troll babe work.

Epic - My favorite in your latest set is definitely the Extortionist now.
