Few races have endured as much as the lizard-like kobolds. A brutal and violent race, kobolds are often seen by others as bestial and of low intelligence. Frequently this is true, but those kobolds who have overcome their bestial sides can be quite ruthless and cunning. Small but making up for their size with ferocity, kobolds are often used as mercenaries by those looking for cheap labor and cannon fodder. This isnt seen as exactly honorable by kobolds, but most grit their teeth and work quietly, deciding that some work is better than none. Mercenary kobolds who are successful in their campaigns are given some respect, but the wild kobold packs running naked through the woods and preying on livestock tend to bring the races reputation down. A few older, wearier kobolds have resorted to capturing and training their feral brothers as beasts of burden or attack dogs, if for no other reason than to feel as though they have some control over how their people behave.
