      the religous undertones and nature of my novel and delved a little
      bit into the personalities of two goblins who are main characters).

      Far beneath the surface of the mountains of Arnak wound a long and
      prized passageway. Those that prepared to spring a trap set by the
      treacherous goblin grr'SHaalg and his brother tyr-aPt, marveled at
      the size and sturdiness of the tunnel. It ran in a direct path
      between their current position and their original starting location.
      At first, they were amazed at the craftsmanship of it: goblins are
      usually known for their craggy and randomly carved tunnels; then the
      group noticed, with some amusement, the reason for the abnormality
      in the tunnel's quality. Several gangs of subjugated dwarven
      craftsmen, the type of ekthro you would usually find directing a
      project of this nature, had been enslaved and directed to build the
      tunnel. Most of these dwarves had been snatched from their dwellings
      in the Drindak Canyons where the Goblins had long ago connected
      their network in the deepest and darkest depths of the craggy canyon
      to a hidden tunnel. They joined where the chasm was thought to be
      bottomless.
      The group slunk through the condensation seeping slag of the rough-
      hewn tunnel at a surprising pace for beings that were unaccustomed
      to the conditions. Their shadows danced across the carved walls,
      cast long by the flickering of torches and by glassine bottles of
      luminate larvae that fed on various local lichens. The group began
      the journey less than two days ago at the tunnel's nexus, far below
      the city of Grinden. The construction of this immense underground
      trade route had been in progress for the past fifteen years, costing
      many slaves their lives. The tunnel was first completed to their
      opening in Zipha, where slaves were easily purchased.
      This massive tunnel system was not the complete product of goblin
      design. While the goblins under grr'SHaalg and tyr-aPt's control
      directed its completion, it was an anomaly. The underground tunnel
      system was found cut far below the scope of most goblin or even
      dwarven tunnels; it was in the depths where the stone was much more
      dense. The slave mining crews merely connected their access points
      to the pre-existing tunnelways. In fact, much of the pre-existing
      tunnels were still unexplored. The quality of the discovered tunnels
      surpassed any other known mines. The goblins forced dwarven slaves
      to complete the final tunnels that connected the royal goblin city
      and its highways to the network to give the illusion that the
      craftsmanship of the entire network belonged to the glory of the
      goblins.
      The humans of Grinden might have been more apprehensive of the new
      Luciferian doctrines and the acceptance of their ekthro brethren had
      they known what it was that lay beneath their very feet. Jand, and
      other countries that were key to the Luciferian reform movement,
      would use this tool to crown beh'-tsah with the title of Lucifer.
      At the heart of Grinden, far below the city's foundation, was an
      immense spherical chamber. The chamber itself was the size of a
      small village; it sprouted tunnels in every conceivable direction.
      It was a perfect counterpart to the trade routes that had their
      central hub in the city. Those who knew of the tunnel network knew
      that the cliché phrase, "every road leads to Grinden," knew that
      this expression also applied to the underground passageways as well.
      Cloaked in darkness, this subterranean group was indifferent to the
      plights of the slaves that toiled in the endless dark caves and
      tunnels, completing a glorious achievement for the goblin kingdom.
      For years the goblin tunnel system had been the primary
      responsibility of the goblin genius that had devised it: grr'SHaalg.
      With the tunnel system almost complete, a new set of operations
      would need to be developed to oversee the implementation of the
      tunnel system. Diplomatic relationships would be key; the nine other
      goblin kingdoms would want access and rights to branch off into
      their own local tunnels, which would give their kind expedient
      access to virtually any point on the surface world.
      These carefully developed plans did not include the tenth king, King
      Nvv-Fryyg. This group of hooded surface dwellers was taking this
      route under the mountains up to the foot of the goblin king's hall;
      it was the very group of assassins that would remove the obstinate
      goblin monarch who too often lapsed into paranoia and secluded
      himself for days at a time for his own perverse gratification. Nvv-
      Fryyg had too long hindered the plans for progress of grr'SHaalg,
      but no longer.
      Along with grr'SHaalg and tyr-aPt were many of grr'SHaalg's loyal
      goblin bladesmen; they used an amalgam of chalks and oils to paint
      their faces, identifying themselves as comrades to the thirteen
      cloaked surface dwellers. Six men on each side flanked the one at
      the forefront; it was Absinthium and his personal Acolytes, highly
      trained assassin-mages. The arch-mage was present to personally
      assist in the assassination and see that the treacherous goblins'
      plans truly aligned with his own; he would also keep his pact made
      on the night of Harmarty's murder.
      The goblins led the Luciferian assassins through several twisting
      craggy tunnels. After winding back and forth through the narrow and
      jutting excavations, they spilled out into a large antechamber; it
      appeared to have been freshly dug from a seam of softer, porous
      stone.
      The chamber was just large enough to hold the assassin group that
      had gathered for this mission. The goblins, the mage, and his
      acolytes all crouched in the dugout space and prepped for the battle
      that was about to ensue.
      The Acolytes checked their gear. They had been handpicked from their
      combat training by Absinthium and personally tutored in a wide array
      of disciplines. They had the privilege of the broadest training and
      the most specialized studies on select topics. Normally, it was
      considered odd to take personal apprentices from outside of your own
      discipline, but Absinthium had more freedom than any other person
      within the order and he had no accountability.
      While each of the Acolytes had started as a promising student of the
      combat disciplines, Absinthium recruited them their other studies
      under other masters and intensified their training and crossed them
      with an array of disciplines giving them the skills that their
      master desired: the talents to make them, corporately, the most
      deadly force alive. That force was the personal directed weapon of
      the arch-mage. They were talented in both physical combat and in the
      realms of directed magic; all of their specialized studies served to
      make them weapons, and nothing more. They spoke little and lived and
      died to serve their Dread Lord.
      Each Acolyte was dressed in a dark cloak and cape, their forearms
      and hands wrapped with leather tapes to form pliable greaves. They
      each had thick leather vests protecting to a minor degree against
      weapons. All of their armor let them move with stealth and with all
      of the speed that they had been trained for. Their belt had several
      quick release pouches containing various alchemical concoctions;
      they wore bandoliers running from hip to each opposite shoulder on
      which was strapped a wide array of small triangle shaped throwing
      blades. A dagger handle protruded from the boot holster of each
      Acolyte's foot. Where their bandolier met the belt at each hip was a
      holster to sheath their sharp and terrible looking kamas; their
      reflective blades were serrated: a dire hooked-blade weapon wielded
      by an expert with no compunction of the soul.
      After each one had checked their gear to satisfaction, they moved
      into their positions. Absinthium was at the front of the chamber,
      ready to initiate the massacre.
      The arch-mage stood before the wall of crumbling, malleable earth.
      He used the butt of his staff to scrape a magical sigil in the
      earthen wall, then he stood back a short distance. His Acolytes
      poised to strike, tensing their bodies as if they were runners about
      to charge out of the starting position. The mage spread his arms
      apart and shouted a word of power that triggered his spell causing a
      massive explosion that blew the wall inward, away from the throng of
      assassins. The noise of the explosion echoed through the chambers
      that had been opened up and the word of power rang through the ears
      of those on the safe side of the explosion.
      The Luciferian Assassins and the goblin bladesmen poured through the
      yawning breach that spread before them. The lavish facility that
      they entered was a lounging room; it was King Nvv-Fryyg's harem.
      This was the place where he spent the bulk of his time as he became
      increasingly consumed by the lusts of his flesh. The explosion had
      blown shrapnel and stone shards through the room wounding and
      killing many of the room's occupants: the goblin king's concubines
      and other courtesans.
      The painted goblins expertly wielded their weapons, killing
      everything that had potential to breath. The goblins were swinging
      their falchions in uppercutting motions, knowing that they had the
      element of surprise and would not need to defend themselves yet.
      Goblin concubines fell under their vicious strokes.
      The Acolytes wielded a kama in each hand; swinging with trained
      precision they severed joints and cleaved bodies. Within seconds,
      the entire room was splattered with the gore of the king's
      concubines.
      The battle groups, having been formed and trained prior to the
      attack, broke off into their own directions to fulfill their
      personal directives. They formed four sub-groups as they ran through
      the exits of the decimated lounging room. Three of the groups were
      equal in size and contained two Acolytes each, along with several of
      the painted goblin bladesmen; these three groups each had a minor
      objective in purging the kingdom of Nvv-Fryyg's reign. One group had
      the duty to seal off the entrance and prevent any goblins from
      entering and escaping into the subterranean village where the harem
      was located—a place just beyond the caverns of the royal hall. This
      group would be reinforced as the other two groups finished their
      tasks.
      The second group would break through the doors of the rookery and
      find any place where the innumerable goblin whelps were being kept
      and eliminate them. The third group was to find more rooms such as
      the one that they had entered through and do the same with them. The
      harem contained many such rooms to suit the desires of the king and
      to house and maintain Nvv-Fryyg's many goblin sows.
      The largest of the groups, the one that remained, contained the
      remaining six Acolytes, Absinthium, a large contingent of goblin
      bladesmen and their leaders grr'SHaalg and his twin brother tyr-aPt.
      The two goblin diplomats knew that their talents were in the realms
      of manipulation and not with weapons; they maintained a position in
      the center of the bodies that kept them protected. This was the
      group that sought the King who was located somewhere within the
      confines of this underground dwelling.
      Nvv-Fryyg's bodyguards and royal court would undoubtedly surround
      him; they were usually present on these frequent holidays of
      carnality. The entire chain of command in this underground kingdom
      would fall to the coup with one fell blow and the deep kingdom would
      be in full submission to the plans of the demon; beh'-tsah would
      soon have control of the Babel Heavens, the kingdom of Jand, and the
      subterranean hub of all of the goblin kingdoms. Each location was a
      foothold for progressive expansion plans, which would bring the
      entire Luciferian realm into accordance with the demonic overlord's
      wishes.
      The three sub-groups exited the bloody chamber just as the first
      group of Nvv-Fryyg's guards entered to investigate the cacophony
      that echoed through the brothel. There was no expectation of
      trouble, so the group was pitifully small, anticipating some mere
      disturbance amongst the concubines. They did not expect to die the
      moment they entered that room, but die they did as they fell to the
      edges and dagger tips of the sickle bladed kamas that chopped them
      apart without even the chance to survey the scene.
      The main battle group took their company on a straight path to the
      central chamber of this habitation. It was the most likely place for
      Nvv-Fryyg to be found. The central room was a banquet hall where the
      king resided or greeted guests that might somehow be invited to Nvv-
      Fryyg's most endeared residence.
      Beyond the main doors of the massacred chamber yawned a large pillar
      dotted expanse that created a fairway stretching to the various
      wings of the brothel, forming immense hallways. As the main group
      headed towards the central fairway they immediately encountered
      resistance.
      Three of the six Acolytes branched off, each going in different
      directions to scout for more resistance and probe the defenses that
      would protecting the king. They would be moving Nvv-Fryyg to the
      safest place of entrenchment as the dank and musty air was filled
      with the screams and shrieks of goblin sows and their brood as they
      fell to the assassin's blades.
      Goblins of both sides clashed; falchion and spear spilled each
      others blood as the arch-mage uttered curses and spells that shook
      the air around them, causing his enemies to burst into flames or
      open wounds without physical contact. The Acolytes sprang into
      action, using the support pillars that randomly and frequently
      protruded from floor to ceiling as cover to attack from. They sprang
      from behind the pillars with their kamas resembling claws, grabbing
      their unsuspecting victims as if they were trap-spiders preying on
      unsuspecting quarry.
      The immense wave of goblins continued to flow at them. Nvv-Fryyg's
      forces had larger numbers, which had now been roused to action by
      the air-splitting screams of the casualties, but they underestimated
      the power of the attackers and their master. They operated with such
      indifference to the situation, like it was mundane, that it made
      them unbelievably scary.
      The defending goblins surged upon their oppressors. It looked as if
      they had split the forces of the attacking group open. A band of Nvv-
      Fryyg's bodyguards took initiative and charged the opening, where
      Absinthium stood undefended and alone. A brief smile on his part
      warned Nvv-Fryyg's guards that they had just been lured into a trap.
      He screamed a curse and swung his staff in front of him in one
      fierce motion; the spell that he cast projected a wave of sonic
      destruction before him, which blasted flesh from bone. The entire
      band that pursued him dissipated as the rent flesh of his attackers
      fell to the floor separate from bone and sinew.
      At that moment, the Acolytes and painted goblins surged forward in
      unison, completely dominating the field of battle. Many began to
      turn and run for the shadows. Several of the cowards fell to
      attritionary damage of the throwing stars directed at their
      backsides by the ever-accurate Acolytes.
      As the oppression from that frontal defense fell before the
      assassins, their flanks prepared for another attack. It came moments
      later, though much smaller in size. More guards had been rallied to
      action by the probing scouts who were running in full retreat back
      to the main group, luring them in as planned. As the scouting
      Acolyte returned, the others had each taken a small wooden box from
      their carrier. The boxes were about a hands height in width, depth,
      and height and had metal spikes protruding from every direction; a
      long but thin chain dangled from it. The Acolytes seized three of
      these caissons and spun them over their heads finally hurling them
      into the thickest throngs of the pursuing goblins. As each caisson
      landed amidst enemies, the wielding Acolyte shouted a word of power
      and the caisson exploded in a fireball of splintering, jaded
      shrapnel, gutting the over-pursing groups of defenders.
      The three caissons exploded in rapid succession, creating discord
      among the king's forces. Each box causing casualties and chaos as
      goblins and their respective body parts were flung in the wake of
      each explosion. The assassins quickly dispatched the uninjured. The
      only remaining forces that displayed life were torch flames that
      licked the musty air and the casualties of the caissons who yipped
      in pain and frustration. The latter were silenced as their goblin
      opponents walked amongst them, casually sweeping their falchions
      back and forth severing the heads of their wounded adversaries.
      In the distance, the second and third battle groups could be
      observed moving through the flickering torchlight; they were
      verifying that the wholesale slaughter was complete. They branched
      off in various directions, checking every nook and cranny where
      goblins might be hiding. The lack of screams and squeals indicated
      the success of the sub-groups.
      Absinthium and his group approached the large central chamber;
      grr'SHaalg began to quiver with excitement. The central chamber was
      like a large stone box. The hallway system was, in essence, an
      immense fairway and the rooms were cave offshoots and boxy
      structures carved from walls, spanning from floor to ceiling of the
      brothel. The central room was a gigantic square room with large
      double doors on each wall.
      Nvv-Fryyg's chamber remained silent and grr'SHaalg could imagine
      that the cowering goblin was hiding within, fearful to even breath
      and give away his position, hoping in vain that his attackers would
      overlook the giant room in the center of the establishment and
      continue the massacre elsewhere. Absinthium gave the doors a quick
      tug and push. They were, as expected, firmly locked.
      Absinthium stepped back several paces. What remained of the main
      group broke up into sub-groups and camped at each door. There was
      one Acolyte at each immense door accompanied by a dozen goblins. At
      the main door stood only Absinthium, the remaining three Acolytes,
      and the two goblin diplomats: grr'SHaalg and tyr-aPt.
      The three Acolytes at each side door whirled a chained caisson high
      above their head; the box made ominous noises as they buzzed in dire
      circles above the heads of their masters. One by one they released
      the chains and flung a charged box at the massive doors on each
      wall. The box, with its spikes and wickedly sharp protrusions,
      stabbed firmly into the wood of the door and lodged there. The
      resounding thud of the impact echoed through the fairway like the
      footsteps of approaching doom.
      The arch-mage uttered a crescendoing incantation. There was a sickly
      cracking noise, like that of a tooth being extracted, and then the
      main doors gave away and were ripped outward into the fairway,
      splitting and flying on either side of the small group gathered
      behind the mage. The goblins within the room stood dumbfounded as to
      what had just happened. Then, as if their instincts kicked in, they
      all scattered and ran to the other three exits of the room. The
      Acolytes shouted their words of power, magically igniting the
      caissons and blowing away the remaining doors, catching the goblins
      that tried to flee in a flurry of shrapnel and alchemical flames.
      Smoldering splinters of burning wood embedded themselves into Nvv-
      Fryyg's furnishings. The remaining group of bodyguards stood in a
      circle, protecting King Nvv-Fryyg with their bodies. They were met
      with a bleak view as the opposition barred each exit.
      Knowing that their end was at hand, the remaining goblin guards
      surrendered their weapons, casting them down at their clawed feet.
      At the orders of their captors, they solemnly marched out the rear
      door of the room and were silently executed, leaving the trembling
      king to face his own end.
      King Nvv-Fryyg sat on the floor, disgraced and humiliated. He was an
      immensely obese mass of ugly tissues. Purple and blackened, his
      gnarled visage had none of the presence of power that the dread
      demon beh'-tsah had. Nvv-Fryyg's appearance was one of pathetic
      disgust and revulsion. His lifetime of gluttony in various lusts had
      left him decrepit in many ways. He could barely move without
      assistance and would constantly feed when he was not pursuing other
      carnal appetites.
      He started to blubber, begging for his life. Recognizing the
      Luciferian prophet, he began to entreat him asking why he had been
      attacked and how he could fix whatever damage he had caused the
      mage. He babbled on about his deal with the mage and how he had been
      loyal to him.
      "Deal?" Absinthium scoffed. "I made no deal with you, Nvv-Fryyg. You
      did not even deign to grace me with your presence. Get on your feet,
      worm."
      At that point, grr'SHaalg and tyr-aPt stepped into view from behind
      the arch-mage. The goblin king's face fell when he recognized the
      two of them.
      "You two," Nvv-Fryyg accused. I should have devoured you when you
      were young, always scheming and plotting."
      "Always doing what we were trained to do, to do the work of the King
      so that he might play. Now it is time that the true masters of this
      kingdom step forward," grr'SHaalg said.
      "You will pay for this. I set you up as a diplomat, I made you who
      you are, I chose you, grr'SHaalg, as my most trusted worker and
      picked you from the litter of my youngest brood. My associates will
      not stand with this. They will usurp you if you kill me."
      "Oh, spare me. Everyone who had any sort of connection to you has
      been killed," grr'SHaalg toyed with him, "just like you would do in
      my situation, that is, if you had any inkling left of how things
      work."
      grr'SHaalg and tyr-aPt walked toward the defeated Nvv-Fryyg and each
      withdrew a wavy bladed kris and a three tined claw that resembled a
      garden tool.
      A runner from the battle group at the harem's entrance reported that
      there would be no more resistance.
      "What excellent news," grr'SHaalg commented, "I always enjoy good
      reports as I feast upon my supper!" The goblin stabbed a hooked fork
      through his progenitor's carapace, the barbs catching hold of
      tissue. grr'SHaalg gleefully ripped outward, pulling with it the web-
      like mesentery sack that bound the fallen king's swollen intestines
      together; it caused the tube-like organs to spill outward and quiver.
      He and his brother fell upon the goblin ruler that had sired them,
      their weapons slashing and gouging. The bulbous portions of Nvv-
      Fryyg's body were torn open and his attempts to ward off any blows
      were for naught as ichor and entrail flowed out of his lacerations
      and puncture-burst hide.
      The shrill screams thrilled his murderers. The strike team looked on
      as a frenzy of blood and viscera blotted the King's essence away,
      pooling all of his life into a puddle on the earthen floor. The
      crunching sounds of his body being devoured signaled that Nvv-Fryyg
      was no more and that, with his body consumed by his successor, the
      ultimate goals of Absinthium and his dread master were coming to
      fruitation. Even the governments and kingdoms below the surface were
      becoming increasingly pliable to the demon's manipulations.

          in the briefly mentioned references to the goblin and dwarf wars.

                    Hello, I’m Jaq D Hawkins, a known author with an established website at http://www.jaqdhawkins.co.uk

                    I am also a new filmmaker, currently seeking funding for my first project, ‘Dance of the Goblins’ starring Kevin McNally (Mr Gibbs from POTC) and possibly other well-known stars, currently in negotiation.

                    I am sending this message out as a unique approach to film funding, with the intent to appeal to those who are tired of the current Hollywood trend towards stale sequels and inane re-makes, and want to see quality entertainment in the cinema, or even to become directly involved.

                    This is being done through a system of donations, Associate Producer credits, and personal investment. For as little as $5 or £5, less than the price of a cinema ticket, you can contribute to the future of quality entertainment. And every donation will be acknowledged in the credits of the film, saved for posterity to remember that YOU helped to make it possible.

                    Larger donations, £100 or more, will receive an Associate Producer credit. £1000 or more is investment capital, and contributors can expect to receive a return on the investment on a sliding scale of percentage profit. For more information on donations or investing in the project, see the film site at http://www.goblinfilmsltd.com/funding.php or contact goblinfilmsltd@... for details.

                    Goblin Films Ltd are focusing on quality scriptwriting and top talent acting for the best entertainment experience we can create for you.

                    We’re not just making a movie.

                    We’re making a statement.

                    Thank you
