12.11.3 The Kobold Village
Hidden away in the foothills of the Areish mountains is a small settlement occupied by strange creatures known as the Kobolds. Although their precise origins remain a mystery, the Kobolds believe that they are descendents of the very spirits of the hills, shaped into physical form during the Breaking. Hidden away from the civilized world for many centuries, the Kobolds have developed into a quiet community which is nevertheless prone to practical jokes and tricks - especially among the young. Understanding little of politics or civilized strife, the Kobolds tend to be friendly to other races as long as their goat herds remain undisturbed and their hills remain unsullied. However, an unwary traveler would be well-advised to walk carefully in the settlement, for they may encounter a few surprises - from the carefully hidden pranks of the local youths to the strange results of the local Shaman's experiments.
