Torgo Lives!
When designing Legacy of the Savage Kings I wrote in a scrappy little kobold named Torgo the Eye-Gouger. Torgo is the leader of a much-maligned group of kobold miners. He doesn’t care to be the leader, but it is the best way to ensure that the other monstrous denizens of the Forge beat up on him as little as possible.

Torgo might have fallen by the wayside were it not for the classic, old school illustration by Doug Kovacs, that captures the best of the AD&D style:

Kovac’s Kobold

Thanks to the power of that illustration, Torgo has a new lease on life and will be appearing on gaming tables near you come late 2006.

He will no doubt fall to an endless rain of magic missles, the holy blades of crusading paladins, poisoned daggers striking from the shadows, and any other of the endless attacks PCs will turn against him. A dark future, to be sure, but one he never could have hoped for. And a dozen years from now you will be able to find him at the bottom of bins at garage sales, his paint chipping, dirks bent, but just as scrappy as ever.

Torgo’s a survivor. Good luck and God speed.

Maybe Noise can use a Torgo mini when he's running your module, Jeff. :)

If Goodman is selling these puppies at Gencon, can you sign Torgo's sword?
