Kobold Lord (5e Race Variant)
From D&D Wiki
|“||A kobold lord is a kobold that has been anointed by an ancient dragon to lead that dragon's forces and to satiate their masters desire for treasure and food.||”|
A kobold lord stands taller than the average kobold at a staggering 6 feet tall, a result of the magics cast upon them to turn them into a lord. Kobold lords generally have more dragon-like appearances than normal kobolds, with strong, sturdy bones, a long, prehensile tail, thicker brows and longer horns, harder scales, a more reptilian face, and, most notably, wings. Kobold lords are usually made from the strongest members of the kobold race, and are extremely favored by their dragonlord. Kobold lords otherwise have the same history as other kobolds, save that a magic ritual is conducted on them to change their form and mirror that of a dragon more. They are usually delineated by an address of "lord" at the end of their names.
This race variant replaces the kobold stat-block.
Kobold lords are generally stronger, more intelligent and much more resilient than their lesser kin.
