Grey Halls Reskin 4: The Goblin Garden

All based on this post and the zine/map i made - will do more

I had nice feedback on this dungeon and a few pointed out it was a good beginners dungeon.  Was intended as a B1 sort of affair that with a simple village could be a basis for a campaign. Another option could be to have characters clear out the dungeon once a year with various soap opera antics in between as they grow from zero or 1st lv youths into local well off peasants.

Various reskinnings are possible given the parameters of the zine. I'm supposed to be finishing is a seaside cave companion also. A seaside village map might be good too. Have had lots of good ideas of late and my to do list has grown.

I have a bunch of early 1st ed modules and gurps sf books coming in to inspire me too.

Reskin Possibilities?
I might make up a compilation of these reskins to go with the zine/map too.

Undead, humanoids, bandits and then frog men versions. Perhaps more feral ghoul one where they feed off the zombies. Necromancy apprentices vs undead cult + undead...that one year where carrion crawlers bred out of control...

Greyhalls Reskin 4: Humanoids HavenThe goblins were peaceful and ressettled the dungeon. They ran a marked and mushroom gardens and painting. Later as extreme cults came molesting sheep and eating babies and attracting more adventurers. The other ex factions keep trying to take over and enslave the goblins so they have become alert to make up for their physical weakness. Several goblin cult spell casters are trying to sway the tribe. Chief Gragax is playing them all but favours the ancestor goblin underworld shaman cult because of the dungeon's habit of turning any intact corpses or skeletons into the undead. With the right cult those undead can be put to good uses.
