Goblins have always been an important part of the fantasy media. From folklores of various cultures to all manner of media including games and movies, Goblins have found one way or another to penetrate almost every facet of fantasy. Perhaps one of the most prevalent fantasy media that includes goblins in contemporary history is Labyrinth through Jim henson. Its crushing impact explains why it’s not a shock that Steamforged games, a tabletop game design company well known for its highly detailed miniature games, has created something that looks inspired by the movie.
The next to come Epic Encounters release, which will be released on September 10 of this year, is Labyrinth of the Goblin Tsar. This seems to indirectly go back to the age-old concept of a Goblin King, but of course, due to the way marks work, a Goblin King with a maze doesn’t quite work, hence potentially why the title of the Goblin- responsible had to change. Either way, these miniatures look fantastic, so let’s take a closer look at the release!
According to the Steamforged Games press release:
Descend into the black depths of the Goblin Tsar’s Maze in your next role-playing campaign! The inhabitants of the neighboring villages have disappeared, consumed by the darkness lurking in the caves. Can you brave the depths and end the terror?
Inside you’ll find everything you need to set up an RPG encounter, including 20 highly detailed miniatures, an adventure book, and enough prompts and stats to weave an epic story.
