If I had a nickle for every time I joined an all-kobolds mini-campaign where the ragtag misfit party was sent on a (unknowingly to them) Suicide Squad mission by superiors into a dungeon for the twofold purpose of being cannon fodder to soften up the monsters within before sending in their real A-Team and also just to straight up get rid of these troublemakers, I’d have two nickles. Which isn’t a lot, but it’s weird that it happened back-to-back in two entirely different groups of people within the same week, right?
This is Red Snapper, a socially stunted kobold that expresses herself by biting. She’s learning to communicate her thoughts through a puppy hand puppet though. And then there’s Ehzzie with their Living Gloves “companions” Nom-nom and Vivi, who are permanently bonded to Ehzzie. Nom-nom wants to fight. Vivi wants to steal. Ehzzie wants to sleep.
Also, Red Snapper drew her own character token art:
I think I’ve posted this before, but it’s a THING now.
In the game I DM, I ended up making up a recurring merchant NPC just for shits and giggles - a Kobold who calls himself Dumas and goes around selling strange magical/enchanted items which are... not as they seem. His prices are enticing, but the items have strange properties, and it’s a gamble to see if your investment is worth it.
My players love him so much they have taken to Sending him every time they want something new, and all of their party funds end up going to this little creature, who is delighted, and is now probably the richest bastard in all of Barovia. (Yes, this is in Curse of Strahd.... look, humor needs to be a part of EVERY game imo, even the Gothiest of them all.)
Every single DnD character I have designed so far...Starting with the ones I have designed for myself!:
-Swindle: Circle of dreams firbolg druid
-Cinder: Swindle but on fire. Circle of Wildfire firbolg druid. Mad about it.
- The Astronomer: Circle of Stars aasimar druid. His identity is his career, no work/life balance. Chill with it.
- Brite: Pact of the Archfey warlock human child. The rat is her dad.
-Tu: College of Glamor Winter Eladrin Bard. Loves mortal folk. Loves pretending to be mortal folk.
AH!: College of Valor kenku bard; my first ever DnD character!
Designs that I made for other people!:
Tal: Pact of the undying human warlock. Was my character for a short while but he has a new home with someone else, now :D
Cricket: Beast Master ranger gnome. Same deal as Tal!
Bobbin'stitches: Kobold artificer... @seandunkley‘s character based on an amazing sketch he did LOL
