Kobold Warrior

Kobold Warrior (CR 3)

Lawful Evil - Small - Humanoid (Kobold)
Kobolds revere dragons and tend to dwell in and around places where dragons are known to lair. They skulk in the darkness, hiding from stronger foes and swarming to overwhelm weaker ones. Kobolds are cowardly and usually flee once bloodied unless a strong leader is present. Kobolds like to set traps and ambushes. If they can't get their enemies to walk into a trap, they try to sneak up as close as they can and then attack in a sudden rush.
Kobold warriors are the best and most dangerous of kobolds in a fight. They hit harder, are tougher, and are much less likely to flee in a pinch.

Special Abilities

Sneak Attack (Ex)

If a kobold makes an attack against an unaware or flat-footed foe, he deals an extra + as precision damage on a successful attack. This damage type is the same as the weapon damage inflicting it, either slashing (physical, common) if melee, or piercing (physical, common) if ranged.

Mob Attack (Ex)

For each adjacent kobold ally, the kobold gains a +1 racial bonus to its to-hit rolls, to a maximum bonus of +3.

Shifty (Ex)

Once per round, the kobold may make a 5-foot step as a swift action. This may be done regardless of any movement or 5-foot steps the kobold may have taken during their move action. This movement does not provoke.


Combat Tactics

Kobolds prefer to lay in wait for their prey, frequently setting up some devilish trap in their ambush kill zone. They will make effective use of their ranged attack, and also shifty to surround their opponents over the course of a round or two.
They will also use Mob Attack to try to maximize their to-hit chances.
They prefer tight areas for their fights, so their victims don't have many avenues of escape. If they have enough time to prepare the ambush site, they will trap the obvious exits, either to prevent runners, or to impede pursuers, in the event the fight goes poorly.
Kobolds will sometimes flee a fight, depending on strange cultural rules that aren't well understood by outsiders. (This is best represented by a die roll with a 50% chance of running from a fight turned sour.) Other times, they will courageously fight to the death.

Out of Combat

Kobolds have a cultish zeal for any dragon that lives in the area, often erecting temples and assisting in the construction and defense of the dragon's lair. Even the lowliest dragon is vastly more powerful than any kobold, even on its worst day, but that doesn't change the fact that dragons see kobolds as useful.
It is unclear what benefit kobolds gain from their worship of dragons, though some stories suggest kobolds have access to divine spells and powers, like a cleric, and these powers are granted by their dragon.
Kobolds follow a peculiar system of honor, which follows such an elaborate pattern that it is all but unintelligible to outsiders, even those who can speak Draconic fluently.
