Your Whispering Homunculus, Now In The Kobold Store

Your Whispering HomunculusCurse that Whispering Homunculus! Yesterday he took over Kobold World Headquarters and wreaked all sorts of havoc online. We finally got control back, only to find out today that while the Homunculus was in charge, he used the Kobold presses to publish his own book.

Yes, you can now buy Your Whispering Homunculus in the Kobold Store. This wretched tome inflicts more than 160 pages of the vile, whimsical, disgusting, bizarre, horrific, odd, skin-crawling, and mildly disturbed side of fantasy gaming upon the world.

A Message From Wolfgang

Ignore that homunculus behind the curtain!

Greetings, my army of Kobold fans! It is I, Wolfgang Baur.

As you know, I am a normal human like you and not under magical control of any kind. Therefore you will not be suspicious when I tell you my glorious news about upcoming improvements to Kobold Quarterly and Open Design.

Twelve NPC Moods

Occasionally, it’s interesting to spice up some checks with the odd unusual modifier due to peculiar circumstances. The way an NPC feels is one option for you to consider using occasionally. The number in brackets indicated is the optional modifier to attempts made to use a Diplomacy check on that NPC. You might also consider that moods are a changeable thing to have, which might be changed by appealing to an NPC’s interest in music, giving a simple gift, or perhaps by even things such as weather.
