View Full Version : Characters vs. goblins (3.5)

2010-06-07, 04:57 AM
I would like to know what lvl characters are in your opinion appropriate for facing gnolls and goblins? Or, to put it from another perspective: To what lvl PCs are gnolls and goblins still a (minor) challenge?

I'm running a short campaign and sort of a came up with this question at some point ...

Depends on the level of optimization and how you play the monsters i.e if you use ambushes and traps. Id say between 1 and 4 give or take.

It depends entirely on how many you use and if you keep them MM standard or upgrade them, and then on how you upgrade them.

I'm running an E6 game that has the players trying to out smart a horde of goblins and orcs... they fear the goblins more then the orcs as the goblins in this setting are cunning and devious.
They are level 6. I use the stats out of the MM. (though occasionaly i send them agains an increased HD goblin or a goblin with class levels.
Lots of fun.

It can somewhat depend on how you play 'em. See also: Tucker's kobolds.
