I got this cute / scary little goblin from my partner and really wanted to add it to our Dungeons & Dragons campaign.
However, next to both the characters and other monster, he didn’t look that scary, so I was wondering how to make him a real threat.
In the end I decided to have him chase a boy on the other side of a chasm the party was in the process of crossing via a narrow bridge. This worked like a charm. The scared boy really bought gravity to the situation and the players stepped up to the challenge to get to the boy before the speedy goblin.
