Welcome goblins and goblettes!


This forum is the place where you can ask the developers questions, give feedback and make suggestions, all while building a strong community around this great city-builder. Together, we can make it even more amazing.


As always, be courteous and respectful when posting. Constructive criticism need not be harsh. I can speak from experience that the developers are as passionate about the game as we, the players, are about playing and enjoying it.


We are One. We are Legion. We are Clan!

Game FAQ


Q How should I start a new village?

A Place your starting point near trees, berry bushes and rocks. Beware of gravestones. Follow the guided instructions provided on the right of the screen.

Q Can you control the goblins?

A Not directly, you can assign them jobs and change priorities of work. They do everything automatically.

Q Can you play as other races?

A No, although there will be some Heroes that are from other races.

Q Are there other races?

A Yes, there will be Humans, Orcs, Elves, Dwarves and potentially others, as NPCs in the world map, that you play against or trade/make alliances with.

Q How do the gods work?

A Gods are essentially your tech tree. By choosing 1-4 gods you will have access to various technology and magic (and other bonuses) from their godly domains. Select only 1 god to more easily appease it and gain favour to unlock all their advantages or select more gods to have the option of more varied bonuses.

Q Can you build more than one village?

A You can only build on the one starting tile you chose. You will be able to interact with other hexes by raiding and trading with the NPC settlements and raid dungeons.

Q What is raiding?

A You will be able to form a raiding party of goblins (that can also be lead by a hero) which you will use to attack cities and dungeons, that you have scouted, to collect much needed resources for your village. These raids will only be text based with some basic tactical options.(edited)

Q How do you protect your village?

A You need to build Watch Towers and assign Town Watch and then later you can build Guard Towers (assigning Guards) and Shaman Huts (assigning Shamans). Two Town Watch should be able to defend the village from one wraith or several skeletons. The towers have small patrol radiuses in which they will attack dangers if they are on duty. The king and the peons can also defend themselves. Peons are not very strong but the king is. Don't rely on this however.

Q Why do my goblins freeze to death?

A Goblins use stick to burn in order to keep warm. They burn these sticks in their warrens and at the camp fire. If they run out of sticks then they could freeze to death. Be sure to stock up sticks for winter, as they burn more sticks in winter.

Q How do you get more resources?

A You can prioritise a specific resource from the building controlling that job. Basic resources like sticks, berries and rocks are managed through the Trade Hall. Other resources require specialised buildings. You can further prioritise the higher tier resources by assigning a Trade Prince to the trade hall. Access the job priority menu through the goblins button or the button in the trade hall (and other crafting buildings). You can also prioritise a specific resource by clicking on the resource node (like a berry bush) and prioritising that resource if you have the appropriate job available.

Q Can you speed up the game?

A You can pause the game and increase the time with the game speed buttons in the task menu or by pressing Space, 1-3. If you play at a faster speed, more time will pass and it is likely you will not be ready for winter!(edited)

Q What can I do when a goblin get stuck?

A Click on the goblin and click the red “go to campfire” button. This will move the goblin to the campfire and hopefully will get on with his business.

Q Why are some goblins red, yellow or white?

A All goblins have a WTF stat, War, Trade and Faith. Some goblins are blessed by the gods. Red goblins have an extra point in War stats and are slightly better at fighting. Yellow goblins are better at work and white goblins will make better faith (priests and shamans) units.

Q What happens in winter?

A Undead enemies spawn in winter. They stay until defeated currently but eventually they will die in spring. In the future other creatures such as wolves will also move closer to the village in winter.

Q What do the red numbers mean in the resource inventory menu?

A The red numbers are the amount of resources needed of that resource.
