Shops of Zobeck: Time’s Closet

Zobeck is a beacon for those hoping to strike it rich—or at least find their place in life. Many travel from all over Midgard to the Crossroads City looking to trade their wares to the right person for the right price or earn their way into the business life of Zobeck. However, not everyone pursues wealth, glory, and fame. Some, desire the pursuit of knowledge, history, truth, and story! There is a small one-story shop run by an elderly human...

Shops of Zobeck: The Kariv’s Apothecary

The Kariv’s Apothecary A small scratchy voice calls out to you, “Welcome stranger! Do you need some help traversing these busy streets? If you do, I am your guide: Black-Eye! Hop aboard, and please, allow me to show you around this magnificent city. If you are looking for anything in particular, do not hesitate to ask.” Looking at this curious kobold and then looking at his rickety cart, you wonder if it will manage on these streets. You...

Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser often find themselves pawns in the schemes of Nehwon’s conniving gods. Kobold Quarterly #21 delves into the roles played by the divine in your campaign, featuring David “Zeb” Cook on using...

Review: Dwarves of the Ironcrags

One of the biggest and best RPG bloggers, Uncle Bear, recently took a look at the Dwarves of the Ironcrags book. It seems to have hit the mark: As I was scribbling in my purple dragonskin notebook, rejecting and crossing off ideas almost as quickly as I can come up with them, Wolfgang Baur apparently read my mind. That’s the sign of a good game designer, he anticipates your needs before you’ve even identified them….I already know what...

Review of Tales of Zobeck

I wasn’t sure how the release of Tales of Zobeck to the wider public would go over. If this review is anything to judge by, though, it was the right move. Let me just say that this is one well-deserved [Silver ENnie] award, and this ebook should go to the top of your list of purchases. I haven’t written reviews in a while, and I’m still reading through the book, but I was so impressed with what I’ve read so far that I wanted to tell...

4E Kobolds and the Tome Show

Jeff Grubb wrote up a version of the Zobeck kobold for use as a 4E PC race over on his Grubb Street site. Technically, Zobeck is a setting for 3E D&D, but I’m happy to see fan material for it in any edition. This one is especially nice because he really gets the urban kobold spin, and he has first-hand knowledge of how kobolds fit into the Zobeck setting. Go take a look, and let me know what you think. Also, the Tome Show has posted...
