The most popular quest on the site at the moment is “The King of All Goblins” from FFG. There are two encounters, here’s a previedw of the setup for encounter 1:
“He calls himself the King of All Goblins,” says Baron Greigory. “Please stop laughing, this is actually a serious matter. This rotund rascal, Splig, has called all the goblin tribes of northern Terrinoth and the Dunwarr Mountains to pay homage and gather under his banner. Alone, each tribe is simply a nuisance. United, they could pose a genuine threat to Arhynn.”
The old baron touches one leg absently and trails off, as if in memory. After a moment he comes back to himself. “Ahem, well, the simplest way to solve a problem like this is to intercept the goblin chieftains and jolly well eliminate them. Then press on to the – hem – ‘Goblin Throne,’ which I understand is just a rock in a cave, and tear it down before Splig completes his crowning ritual.”
With his words still ringing in your ears, you press on towards the “Goblin Throne” and prepare to intercept the goblin chieftains on the banks of a nameless river descending from the Carthmounts. You wonder why the old man seemed so concerned. They are only goblins, right?
