Little Things: The First Offering
Publisher: Black Goat Games
by Rafael C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/01/2014 16:21:51

This nasty little system-agnostic sourcebook features 29 pages of strangeness, including:

  • New monsters, like the dimension-hopping Krofron -- which, depending on the GM's roll, might be searching for kidneys to harvest or human flesh to eat. Fun details, well-written.

  • Random tables -- names for villages (Clawpoint), weird secrets ("The candlestick maker uses babies as one of their ingredients"), and random room details ("A young woman named Alzbeta is crying for some reason"). It's vile food for thought.

  • Cornerstone Keep, a five-page mini-setting with NPCs, info about the region, and disturbing secrets.

If you're looking for new grotesquerie to inject into a dark fantasy RPG, you might dig Little Things.

If you'd like a few dark ideas for your fantasy games, I think you might like Little Things. It's got some good ideas, but it feels a little short to me. Since half of the content is available freely online, and the other half is mostly just tables, it also feels a little like a grab bag of stuff based around a general grimdark theme.

Still for BGG's first foray into published material, it's off to a promising start. I think one should consider Little Things more of a sampler of the dark content that Black Goat Games can and will output in the future.

Thanks for the great, honest review, sir! Also, the review on your site is quite expanded and very well done, I feel. It\'s excellent feedback that helps make future products more, well, excellent. (Excellenter?) I do want to note (for those reading) that some of the the freebies on the site will be cut down and will be offered up on here, in better laid out, newly edited form, as Pay What You Want. That\'s what I\'m working on at this very moment, in fact. Aside from typing this out, I mean. Cheers! Steve

If tables are sexy (and they are), then tables with internal sub-tables are downright erotic. If I still have your attention, then it may please you to know that this little thing delivers precisely one score of tables (not counting sub-tables, of which there are seven). You will also be delighted, or perhaps repulsed, I don't know, with a few creatures, a location, and a nice blank floorplan for you to fill with your devious stuff.

The creatures and features contained in Little Things spring from the dark places and like peppercorns, cobwebs and those little bugs that roll up when you poke them, they can be as amusing or terrifying as you choose -- it is a question of scale.
