The World of Illunis
Kobolds are a race of medium-sized reptilian humanoids that infest the steamy jungles of the southern lands in Illunis. They average in between a dwarf and an elf in both height and build. Kobolds are a loose society of nomadic tribes. The tribes make no claims to land; they all wander freely through the forests. Even though kobolds are mostly peaceful, relations with other races are strained at best—probably because their reptilian appearance is so different from what most other humanoids are used to.
Kobolds live very close to nature. They teach of a spiritual energy that permeates all living things. Kobolds seem to have a sensitivity to this energy. This is what allowed them to devise the art of alchemy. They brew concoctions of various plants to produce potions and ointments that provide wondrous effects on the body. Tales of miraculous healing make wandering kobold merchants welcome, if unsettling, visitors.
