Welcome to the Fungal Kingdom!

Welcome to 8-Bit Adventures! Do you yearn for a simpler time, when video games scrolled right and you only had to deal with 2 buttons at a time? An era where blocky, colorful, vaguely recognizable shapes made up heroes that battled odd and often confusing villains with little to no context? Then Fat Goblin Games has you covered!
Not only do you get an amazing 8-bit bestiary with over 15 iconic 8-bit monsters, you get 11 mini-adventures in classic 8-bit worlds where these creatures play major roles! Take on the role of your favorite 8-bit hero and jump, hop, and climb your way through the various levels to do what else... rescue the Princess of course!
This product line is designed to take a nostalgic look at the iconic video games of the past and bring those adventures to life in your campaigns in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game with all new options. Each volume will include monsters, magic items and maybe more! The names have been changed, but the flavor remains the same to ensure that the references are easy to see. Each volume will describe a different game world, each inspired by a classic game sure to inspire nostalgia in even the most hardened of veterans.
This volume covers the incursion of the Turtle Legions into the peaceful Fungal Kingdoms. The Turtle Legions have a variety of lethal troops at their disposal, ranging from the lowliest CR 1/2 wrenchy raccoons all the way up to the imposing Turtle King himself, weighing in at a whopping CR 15. Most of the monsters included present optional variants to help encompass the vast array of foes found across the many incarnations of the Fungal Kingdom. These foes provide a wealth of options to challenge parties of any level.

Shadows over Vathak: Player's Guide to Vathak (NOW IN PRINT)

A Stricken World

Shadows over Vathak blends the Otherworldly, Cosmic Horror themes of New England's Lovecraft, the Macabre Mysteries of Poe, and the sensibilities of Victorian, Gothic Horror Adventure into an original fantasy setting for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

As players, your characters fight to survive in a land threatened with destruction by the rise of the ancient and evil Old Ones and their spawn. 
Your characters may represent points of light in the darkness or give in to dark temptations. 
Most will fall somewhere in between — survivors struggling to eke out another day. 
Though the followers of the One True God speak of divine providence while battling the Old Ones, the sins of the Church often rival those of their enemies. 
In the world of Vathak, your character’s perceptions of heroes and villains is a thin line drawn by their own personal morality and, of course, determined by the victor.
Included in the Shadows over Vathak: Player's Guide you will find:
  • A thorough introduction to the world of Vathak, a land and people struggling against ancient evils.
  • Suggestions and setting-specific mechanics to help you create and play characters in a horror game.
  • Rules and options for the 9 playable races of Vathak, from the tribal bhriota, to twisted cambions, ghostly hauntlings, and much more!
  • Complete write-ups for 4 new classes of Vathak, with at least 2 archetypes for each of the 36 core and base classes, including the occult classes.
  • Detailed rules for crafting firearms and 50 feats to help you make your characters unique and suited for the horrors of Vathak.
  • A rich selection of weapons and armor, new and old, with options for tools, alchemy, vehicles, and other gear needed to survive Vathak.
  • An entire chapter expanding on both early and advanced firearms for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the only thing keeping the horrors at bay!
  • A rich discussion of each of the major religions of Vathak, from the Church of the One True God, to the romni Court of Signs, and the cults and secret societies of the Old Ones!
  • Topped off with a discussion of magic in Vathak, with new options for divine casters, and a vast set of spells perfect for Vathak.

The softcover print version comes with the same style cover as show on the product page. The hardcover version comes with a white leather cover with ornate metal clasps and corners, and a large stylized Judgement (the holy symbol of the Church of the One True God) across the cover. The hardcover version is exclusive to this store!

The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle on DriveThruRPG till Nov 13th, and the Moon Men are Coming!

The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle on DriveThruRPG till Nov 13th, and the Moon Men are Coming!

Hello All,

THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle is available NOW on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.com until 11:59:59 pm on November 13th, and then gone forever!

You can read all about The Hoarde's Hoard Bundle here, where we talked about it as representing Our Past, and how we consider it a "Thank You" to our current fans, as well as preparation for Our Future via the Goblin Army Patreon.

The Bundle is SO BIG OBS (One BookShelf, the parent company of DriveThru/RPGNow) can't even render the full list of all of the books on their listing for it! (YOU can see the full listing here on our website).

And when this Bundle goes away, it will NOT be coming back. So much so, that a number of books included in it wont be available ever again -- so pick them up now!

The Bundle price is set at $30, but if you log-in and notice a discount, its because OBS reduces the price of the Bundle for each book you already own -- so if you have copies of many of these books, you might be able to pick up this Bundle today for a real steal!

I've talked about the Bundle and our Patreon in the past, so rather than rehashing that, I'll show you to the following links where I discuss:

Our Present

So, enough talking about Our Past and pitching Our Future, how about we talk about the HERE & NOW!

Shadows over Vathak

Last week we released our long-awaited Shadows over Vathak: Player's Guide!

 Shadows over Vathak blends the Otherworldly, Cosmic Horror themes of New England's Lovecraft, the Macabre Mysteries of Poe, and the sensibilities of Victorian, Gothic Horror Adventure into an original fantasy setting for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

The Player's Guide provides you with all the options you would need to play in our dark world on the brink, or to play any number of the extensive listing of Shadows over Vathak adventures and supplements! We have a backlog of new and compiled releases planned for Shadows over Vathak, so expect to see much more support for that forthcoming between now and even the release of Shadows over Vathak: GameMaster's Guide!

vs. M Engine Games!

Our vs. Ghosts was available, free of charge, to those that participated in OBS's Trick-or-Treat event, and over 1,250+ copies of the vs. Ghosts game was downloaded! 

So if you're one of those people that picked up vs. Ghosts, be sure to check out the three adventures we've written for it (two specific for the game only, and one that crosses over with vs. Stranger Stuff) -- AND keep an eye out for our next venture into the world of the supernatural -- vs. Præternatural!

[[Hear a Podcast of vs. Ghosts Game Play HERE!]]

But we're also exploring some "other things" with the vs. M Engine, specifically --

THE MOON MEN ARE COMING!

vs. Moon Men by Jason Owen Black was announced back in early October, and is mid-layout as we speak for a release sometime in the next week or two. vs. Moon Men throws you into an alternate 1970, where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's landing on the Moon is taken as an act of aggression by Moon Men whom then fly down to Earth and dominate our planet. You will take on the role of a resistance fighter, and if you're really lucky, can turn the Moon Men's death rays and flying saucer's against them!

Here are a few interior shots of what's to come!

 

 

 

And we have so much more planned -- things like new CLASSified books and Call to Arms: Horses & Mules, and so many more!

So keep a weather-eye on the Facebook page for updates on all these great projects!

Past, Present & Future -- The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle & Our Goblin Army Patreon

Past, Present & Future -- The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle & Our Goblin Army Patreon

AVAILABLE NOW ON DriveThruRPG and RPGNow

till November 13th, then Gone Forever!

Life will kick you when you’re down.

Two years ago Fat Goblin Games was dying. A series of bad choices, bad partners, and bad business practices were crippling our company. I was burnt out doing freelance, felt stupid for not seeing what was going on with the company, and then my family started to fall apart.

We lost our home and needed to move in with relatives, my marriage was strained, and my kids were sacrificing. I had to make choices and they needed to be smart ones. I needed to rebuild a business that would be successful, needed to work with people I trusted, and needed to grow the business in new directions.

And that’s what we did. With the help of people like Troy Daniels and Lucus Palosaari, we put together teams of amazing freelancers and game designers. We increased the quality of our books, relaunched entire product lines, and pushed in new directions. We revitalized Fat Goblin Games into what I had always hoped it would be.

Last month, my family moved into a new house. Fat Goblin Games has had a competitive release schedule and strong reviews for our products (thank you in particular to Endzeitgeist for recognizing our “shift” in his reviews of our products). We push boundaries and tried new things and we are grateful for that success. It has been a blessing, one we owe to our fans and customers.

Our Past — The Goblin Hoarde’s Hoard Bundle

We like crazy sales at Fat Goblin Games, and have done some unique promotions. But it was Owen KC Stephens of Rogue Genius Games who attempted the “mega bundle” before we even had the guts (his OwenGeniusBundle of course!). But the more we talked about it, and the more we discussed, we realized a bundle of all our past products at an incredible price could be the real “thank you” to our fans they deserve, and a way to make some new friends.

So, here we are: The Hoarde’s Hoard Bundle!

This bundle includes EVERY PDF we have released before 2016. Every one of them that are still available, including a ton from our partners at Abandoned Arts and Tricky Owlbear Publishing. We are going to give you “Our Past” that you made possible: 293 books with over 3,000 pages of content for just $30. (see the full list of titles by checking out this link!)

We hope you like it, tell your friends about it, and then come back to check out all our current and future stuff.

Our Present & Our Future — The Goblin Army Patreon

But we don’t want to just celebrate our Past and our Present, we want to welcome you to our Future.

It’s a reality of the tabletop RPG “industry” that it is hard to make money. There’s a reason we have endless Kickstarters and always ongoing discussions of what a fair wage for freelance writers is or what it should cost for RPG art. We not only want to make a living, for ourselves and for our freelancers, “doing this” -- we NEED to.

There is also the idea of the 1,000 True Fans. You can find many think-pieces about it, but the simple idea is that if you can convince an small but dedicated army of fans to be willing to invest in you and your creative endeavors, you can be remarkably successful. For our industry, we don’t need even 1,000 (though that would be amazing!), even 100 True Fans would make a world of difference to the products we can and do produce. And so, this along with so many other things, have lead us to try something a little different: Our Goblin Army Fan Club Patreon!

 Welcome to the Fat Goblin Games'Goblin Army Fan Club!

This patreon is for die-hard Fat Goblin Games fans who want to see — and get involved with —the madness of creating awesome roleplaying games. We want this to be something that completely absorbs you in all things Fat Goblin Games.
By becoming a member of our Goblin Army (as a patron to Fat Goblin Games), you allow us to be able to dedicate to our Goblin Hoarde (the writers, editors, artists, and developers of FGG) the resources needed to:
  • Support existing product lines, speed up the up production, and offer the Hoarde better rates.
  • Tempt new and well known talent to join the Hoarde.
  • New projects and product lines.
Alongside this we will be bringing you into our "inner circle" of design and development. Ever wondered how many crazy ideas the Fattest Goblin pitches a day? Our process on creating art? How we make each book from start to finish?

There are other perks to being in the Goblin Army as well: regular Q&A chats (which can be about anything), sharing of in-house resources (style guides for Pathfinder & 5e development, templates for book styles, etc.), drawing your likeness (or that of your loved ones) into products, and a whole lot more!

So, if you are a fan of Fat Goblin Games and ready to join the Goblin Army— WE WANT YOU!

So please, pick up our Bundle. Check out our most recent books. And consider joining our Goblin Army.

You can read more about the Goblin Army and the Freelance Bootcamp HERE!
