Odd Gobs

Madness Heart Press

  • $5.00

Odd Gobs is a stand-alone tabletop RPG for 2+ players, fully contained on a single double-sided folding pocket map.

Taking place in a near-future cyberpunk dystopia, the Goblins (that’s you) have to make ends meet in any way they can. What better way than signing up for an app that allows you to take jobs as they come up and do what Goblins do best? (What do Goblins do best? Introduce chaos to any given situation!)

Each game will consist of one player (the GigL Master) creating gigs for the Goblins. The Goblin players will then travel through the liminal spaces of a sprawling cyberpunk metropolis to reach destinations, perform whatever tasks they need to, return to a safe space, and then negotiate their pay, all while avoiding getting burnt out by too many stressors!

Utilizing its own system that allows you to roll whatever sort of dice you have on hand, Odd Gobs is geared for quick pick-up and play. Goblins have tags called Benefits and Stressors that can improve (or hinder) how they do certain tasks. These tags can be modified through shopping, getting paid, getting hurt, or the ever-present CHAOS TABLE.

The map features:

  • A Z-Fold Design, making it easy to pack up and store!
  • Covers that are laminated and durable, making it safe to carry with you to whatever area of the city your GigL jobs take you!
  • One side with rules, random tables for creating jobs and Goblins, and the Chaos Table, which helps the GigL Master add more and more chaos to the game as things go on.
  • One side with a map of the city, which features locations for tasks and random tables that display events, threats, obstacles, and treasures.
  • Easy hackability into other Cyberpunk-themed roleplaying games!
  • The map of the city is player-facing so you can share the beauty of dystopia with all!
