Dirty bomb


"Goblins will lay waste to anything they can, given the chance. Perhaps someone should tell they are too literal." - Sir Gunnar Raknarson, Author of Buried But Not Dead: Surviving Underground, on the subject of the dirty bombs.

Full Item Description:

Though the design may change from tribe to tribe, there are two well known types of dirty bomb.  One is clay vessel designed to look like a dried pile of excrement with a fuse, though the waste inside is usually quite moist.  The other varies in size but is usually considerably larger then it's clay counterpart and is collection of bodily waste, rotting food and various other forms of goblin trash and has been seen with and without the explosive center of it's smaller cousin.

The first of these two works as you might expect.  Light the fuse, throw and wait for your poor victim to realize they've been coated in goblin doodoo, should they not be fatally wounded by the flying shards.  The larger dirty bomb though has been used as either a large bomb or simply ammunition for siege weapons such as catapults.


Like the wheel, like fire the spear, there are just some things that have been around for so long no one really knows who invented or discovered them.  While the collective memory of the goblin race may not simply be long enough compared to other races to remember who invented the dirty bomb, it is one of many things about goblin culture that others will never forget.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
