d100 Kobolds for sale

In Shadelport kobolds are popular slaves, useful for hundreds of reasons. From expendable potion testers to door openers, kobolds are working hard. Do remember while cruelty to kobolds in public is not shunned like horse beating, treating them badly in kobold territory could be a problem. As kobolds treat each other often badly treating them a bit better is easy.

Kobolds are easy to store and ship. They tolerate conditions other races would die in. A well cared for kobold lives twice as long as a wild one.

Some religious leaders and a troublesome women's movement claim they have souls and can be almost civilized even deserving the same rights as goblins and orcs. Most people would look twice at a owner beating a kobold to death in the street. Kobolds work with phosphorous in match factories, mines, dye factories and other dangerous jobs. Many humans in the ghettos complain about kobold slaves and would also like to see them emancipated (and cooked in soup). Even urchins and mutants in the ghetto complain. Orcs and goblins dont care about how humans treat kobolds. Orcs rarely acknowledge they are visible. Goblins are happy humans don't treat them like kobolds even if only slightly better.

A few wizards with carpet bags of holding gave up using spells and just used kobolds.

  1. Wow, I love the idea of another race (other than humans and elves) having so many subtypes.

    I don't know how I'd feel about using slaves, but getting a few and breeding them to populate a free Kobold City (hiring miner Kobolds to carve it into a mountain) sure would be fun!

    1. There have been many forms of slavery and near slavery throughout history: serfdom, thralls,indentured servants, creditcard users. It likely isn't as evil as being chased into the waste to starve, being burned alive,or hacked to death.
      D&D campaign civilizations are not the real world and don't have to be considered a romantic ideal. Sometimes societ sucks and it takes real heroes to rise above it.
