  • 5/20/2022 - New Horror RPG: The Final Girl

    The Final Girl is the perfect horror RPG if you're looking for a rules-lite, quick-playing game where lots of characters will die.

    Come learn about our latest addition to the site, a game where everyone has to create multiple characters and share them ... so that no one gets too attached when all of them (except the "final girl") dies!


  • 5/20/2022 - New Pirate Resources

    This week we've got two great resources for fans of Pirate RPGs.

    First we have A General History of the Pyrates, a 1724 history of pirates.  While the language in this free e-book is somewhat dated, the wealth of real-life pirate stories it contains certainly isn't, as this book is full of great NPCs, adventure ideas, and other source material.

    We have also have D20 Pirates, a great blog full of pirate-y resources.  While some of those resources are specifically for a D20 pirate campaign, the blog also has resources for Savage Worlds, as well as plenty of great system-neutral resources, such as ship floor plans, that can be used by any pirate campaign.


  • 5/6/2022 - New Crime RPG: Streets of Bedlam

    This week we have a new recommendation for our Crime RPGs page: Streets of Bedlam.

    This supplement for Savage Worlds lets you explore a modern, violent, and neo noir-styled city ... which is to say that essentially it's a Savage Worlds version of Sin City.  Check it out!


  • 4/29/2022 - Sentinel Comics

    This week we have a new and popular Super Hero RPG, Sentinel Comics.  This game offers a lightweight, flexible system that can handle a wide variety of super heroes and super hero adventures.

    First released as a starter kit from independent publisher Greater than Games in 2017, and then as a full-fledged RPG rulebook in 2020, Sentinel Comics has quickly grown in popularity.  Come learn what this great new game has to offer for your next superhero campaign.


  • 4/22/2022 - New Pirate RPG: Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies

    This week we have a new Pirate RPG recommendation: Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies.  This narrative-focused, fantasy swashbuckling RPG could be the perfect RPG for your next pirate campaign.

    We also have a new (but as yet un-recommended) Super Hero RPG: Sentinel Comics.


  • 4/15/2022 - Wise Guys

    This week we're back to Crime RPGs, with a recommendation for Wise Guys.  This 3rd-party supplement for Savage Worlds offers a GM everything they need to run a mafia (or other organized crime) campaign. 


  • 4/8/2022 - New Crime Page

    This week we have a brand new page for crime-related RPGs.  That page includes six great games to consider, but we recommend Blades in the Dark as our top choice.

    This game of criminal gangs in a fantasy industrial era city (where the sun no longer shines and the dead have risen from their graves) was ranked #6 out of all RPGs on RPGGeek.com.  If you're looking for a game where you and your party can form a gang and commit various heists, all with a narrative-focused ruleset, look no further than Blades in the Dark.


  • 4/1/2022 - Legacy: Life Among the Ruins

    We've added another post-apocalyptic RPG this week, the multi-generational Legacy: Life Among the Ruins.

    In this narrative-focused game a player controls not just a single character, but also an entire family.  They both play as that family and as their character, and when that character dies or retires they take on a new recruit from the family as their next character.


  • 3/25/2022 - Other Dust, Super Console, and Final Girl

    This week we added two new games without recommendations: Super Console, for our Final Fantasy RPGs page, and Final Girl, for our Horror page.

    We also added one new game recommendation, to our Post-Apocalyptic RPGs page: Other Dust.  Other dust is a spin-off of the popular Space Travel game, Stars Without Number, and offers and "old school" and sandbox-focused take on the genre.

     


  • 3/18/2022 - Kids on Brooms and New Zombie Resources

    This week we've added a new School RPGKids on Brooms!  Kids on Brooms uses the core rules from the popular indie RPG Kids on Bikes, but exchanges the small town setting of the original for a wizard/witch academy.  To put it another way, it's an unofficial Harry Potter RPG.

    We've also added a trio of resources to our Zombie RPGs page

  • 3/13/2022 - Welcome to Goblin Crafted!

    Goblin Crafted has been operating for over well over a year now. With more than a hundred different game recommendations already written, and more coming all the time, we needed a way to tell our readers about the latest site additions ... but the goblins (as usual) had some "production issues".

    Thankfully those issues have all been worked out, and we now have a regular news feed! Check back here any time to learn about all of the latest additions to Goblin Crafted.
