ABOUT

Some kobolds are not stupid. A rare few are quite clever, and kobold trapsetters are among the cleverest of their lot. They know that the much larger folk want to exterminate them, so these kobolds make their traps extra deadly, using others of their clan as bait. On rare occasions, their traps manage to kill an adventurer, which makes for a good day indeed.
