Description[edit]

Dragon-Blessed kobolds appear as other kobolds, except that thy have sightly thicker scales. Their color matches that of their draconic blessing.

According to kobold lore, dragon-blessed were just that - blessed at birth (by a dragon or their draconic ancestor). They were treated as a blessing on the tribe and therefore given special reverence, but have all the responsibilities of any other member of the tribe.

In battle, they often will wait until the most opportune moment to use their dragon breath. It can present a great surprise for unwary travelers, especially if the kobold band has more than one dragon-blessed.

Once rare, Dragon-Blessed Kobolds have been bee appearing more and more often within kobold bands. This is a rather disturbing trend.
