Goblin Slayer Synopsis
Goblins are known for their ferocity, cunning, and rapid reproduction, but their reputation as the lowest of monsters means their threat is overlooked. Raiding rural civilizations to kidnap females of other species for breeding, these vile creatures are free to continue their onslaught while adventurers turn a blind eye in favor of more rewarding tasks with greater rewards. To commemorate her first day as a Porcelain rank adventurer, the 15-year-old Priestess joins a group of young and enthusiastic fledglings to investigate a tribe of goblins responsible for the disappearance of several village women. Unprepared and inexperienced, the group soon faces their inevitable demise from an ambush while exploring a cave.
With no one else left standing, the terrified Priestess accepts her fate – until the Goblin Slayer shows up unexpectedly to not only rescue her with little effort, but to destroy the entire goblin nest. As a holder of the prestigious rank of Silver, the Goblin Slayer allows her to accompany him as she assists the Adventurers Guild in all goblin-related matters. Along with Priestess, High Elf, Dwarf, and Lizardman, the armored warrior will not rest until all goblins in the borderlands have been eradicated forever.
