  • Speculations: Goblin Contracts & Goblin Debt

    I just thought a thread speculating on these things before a future dev post on it might be an entertaining intellectual and creative exercise.

    I think Goblin Debt might be things that you can sacrifice that can get you a goblin contract without experience.

    Or maybe to get the contracts, you owe a goblin a favour, that it expects to be payed back for at some future point.

    I'm particularly interested in how the goblins go around collecting said debt.

      It might be inherent to the deal, not physical enforcers.

        I love the concept of Goblins as loan sharks

        Can they leave the Hedge, in order to collect a debt?

          oooo....That sounds really cool. It would be cool to see Goblins in the Hedge finding where you live, knocking on your door like mobsters; "Hey Paulie - You got my money?" :P

          Maybe it would be like a pact like how the Unchained make Demon Pacts?

            Now I'm thinking of things like Cinderella's wonderful dress turning to rags and such at the stroke of midnight: The stuff got repossessed. Oh, and you also owe your first born child as interest.

              Or Rumplestiltskin demanding a first born child for straw spun into gold.

                Well from what I've seen of them throughout popular fiction, they're almost constantly depicted as bankers, bureaucrats, and merchants.

                    don't want it to be too similar though

                      I would wish this fella and his coworkers would had a greater focus in the Potter movie. Imagine if they were the ones who actually control the British Wizard Society, Death Eaters included, through the economic system.

                          You mean they aren't there already? (Just kidding)

                          I'm really looking forward to the next development blog post.

                            Saw that post, and boy is that interesting as a system. The idea of goblins being something that separate from Fae is interesting to say the least

                              That's nothing new, really. I mean, goblin and fae are both pretty general terms with some degree of overlap, but Goblins (the ones you make Goblin Contracts with) and the Fae (the True Fae/Gentry) have always been distinct entities.
