Kobold, 3rd Variant (5e Race Variant)
From D&D Wiki
Kobolds are reptilian humanoids, standing between 2 and 3 feet tall. Their legs are digitigrade and their fingers are long and clawed. Kobolds have a snout similar to a crocodile and have long tails. Their skin is scaly and can be a variety of colors but the most common are shades of red, brown and black. Small horns grow from the top of a kobold's head.
Dragonwrought kobolds have a more powerful connection to their dragonic ancestors so they have patches of scales that are colored to match their respective ancestor. Some of them were also born with wings, allowing them the ability to fly if they were raised in an environment where they could practice this ability.
Kobold clothing is simple and often ragged. Clothing was chosen for its functionality, not for preventing nudity.
Kobolds usual like living in dark places, tending to live in thick forests, caves and deep underground. However they are cold-blooded so they tend to stick to warmer climates. They live in large tribes, however when a tribe gets too big it splits into several smaller ones. The overcrowding in tribes means that there is no concept of privacy so kobolds don't view nudity as offensive or shameful. The same overcrowding can also breed conflict, leading kobolds to fight with each other to settle their differences.
Being in a monogamous relationship was not natural for a kobold. Mates were chosen for practical reasons rather than using emotions. Kobolds have one of the highest birth rates among humanoids, with a pregnant female able to lay an egg every two weeks. Some kobold eggs were known to contain dragonwrought kobolds, due to the eggs being speckled with the color of a draconic ancestor. Kobolds aged quickly, reaching adulthood at about 6 years old.
Kobolds do take good care of their bodies, gathering together for communal bathing, especially after shedding their skin. They would polish their claws using stones and would chew roots to help clean their teeth. Kobolds are omnivores but will eat almost anything if times get tough and they are desperate for food.
Kobolds are usually weak so when confronting enemies they tend to either face them with great numbers or utilize traps to wear down or eliminate their foe. Kobolds are quite skilled at trapmaking and is seen in their society as an art form.
Kobold names come from the draconic language and are usually connected with their physical appearance , their behaviour or a particular part of their body. Sometimes a kobold will change its name by adding to it after an important event, such as surviving a great battle or giving birth.
