Mini-Six: Goblin Slayer


Although it is not definite, I may be running a Goblin Slayer One shot for Mini-Six in a few weeks for my daughter, her girlfriend, and a few people from her weekly Adventurer's League group. 

 I'm stoked, to be honest,  outside of P.I.E. I rarely get to play in Mini-Six and especially not in a dark fantasy setting.  So what is, Goblin Slayer?

Goblin Slayer is a Japanese Light Novel series (Think YA but not really) that has been adapted into several Manga and Anime series.  IMDb describes it as:

"In a fantasy world, a lone hero makes his living by exterminating all goblins he encounters. But one day he meets a friend, and his life begins to become more intense.

A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress. It's the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue--a man who's dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there's no telling who might come calling next.

Humanity has been at war with different kinds of monsters for so long that people are used to it now. For those who want to take part in this, there is a guild of adventurers, where everyone can accept a quest and fight monsters for a reward. Among all those monsters, goblins are believed to be the weakest creatures to fight, which makes rewards for killing them quite minimal. Being alone, goblins are easy to kill, since they are not smart and lack any strategy whatsoever. However, among these stupid creatures, there are goblins that are much more powerful, smarter and deadlier than their small and foolish brothers. Together, they form a power that is able to trouble even experienced adventurers. The problem is that only a few understand it. Goblin Slayer, Orcbolg, or Beard-cutter is underappreciated silver-ranked adventurer, who, for some reason, only accepts goblin-killing quests. What is his story?"

I won't go over my Mini-Six house-rules in this post ... I'm working on something separate for that, instead, I'll just be posting my workup of the main two Goblin Slayer characters:



As the week goes by and time allows I will be working up Dwarf Shaman and High-Elf Archer.
