Your Whispering Homunculus: 100 Notable Kobolds, Part One

“Ah, slug, I want you to go into the upper east cellar and fetch Nadger for me.”
“Upper east cellar, master. I’ve never been there before, but I happily perform any task you wish however dangerous or menial. Might it be impertinent to ask—since I’ve yet to meet the gent—who Nadger is?”
“It is impertinent, but I’ll answer anyway. Nadger is my kobold ferret keeper. He often performs little tasks for me in the Undercity.”

We love kobolds. Everyone should have one, but admittedly, they are a little expendable. One blow, and they fall—usually. When the mighty dwarf hero Tallparts the Magenta wades knee deep in kobold flesh, how do you distinguish one foe from another? Who might be Nax the great kobold dwarf slayer of legend, who is clearly higher ranked by her tail ornamentation and who is the pipsqueak of the litter? How to tell them all apart…

Why by consulting our handy random kobold generator of course! Here are 100 of the little fellows and ladies spread over these two editions of YWH. Use them to add note to your kobold mages, to thrust the personality of these little fellows at your PCs during an exchange of views, or simply to add a few variations to that evening of slaughtering without dialogue.
