I totally understand if this is a no, but would it be possible to sacrifice 5ft of move speed for an extra skill proficiency to reflect Eijits advanced age? I haven't made a sheet and chosen any skills yet, but I just feel like this would help the old man RP.

I guess it's a big ask as if you allow one customisation then more people will ask for small tweeks and then you gotta track them all. Buuuuuut, can't help to ask!

I quite like flavourful fluffing like this, so that's a yes!

Application
right-aligned image
  • Character Name: Jigfed
  • Class & Subclasses: Sorcerer (shadow magic)

Personality
What is your Kobold like? What is unique or whacky about them? Any mannerisms we should know about? Are you friendly and trusting, or snivelling and manipulative?
I spend most of my time on the outskirts of the lair, in the tunnels leading deeper into the mountain. There's all sorts of creatures crawling around out there, and it is my job to make sure they don't cause trouble for the lair. Which, I suppose, doesn't exactly make me unique- there's plenty of other kobolds who do the exact same thing. But what makes me stand out, is that I like the job. I like the animals, more than any of my colleagues do. Most are happy to just kill anything that seems like a threat- or tasty enough- but me? I like to work with the beasts, either helping them relocate to some other part of the underground, or befriending them so they can help out the lair. And can you blame me? They're just so adorable!

The other kobolds back at the lair respect what I do for the lair. Either that, or they realize I'm not a threat to them. They know I'm not trying to take over their place in the lair, because I'm happy with the one I have. Other kobolds are always on edge because they're all clumped together in a lair that's not big enough for all of them, which causes no end of grievances between them. But they know I'm not a part of that, so most of them don't mind me when I return to the lair for supplies. And I like helping out the others while I'm there- with small chores or big favors, I don't mind either way. I'm just grateful for the social interaction, you know? Sometimes the others act like I'm not smart enough for them, which I guess is true- being alone in the tunnels most of the time means missing out on things most kobolds find natural, so I usually don't know things which are common knowledge to the lair. But they seem to like me well enough not to hold it against me. Well, not before I leave on my next patrol, anyway.

As for the queen leaving... Yeah, I'm sad about that. I think she took one look at her lair, which had become an overcrowded warren for my kind, and decided there was not enough room for her. After all, the queen's huge, you know? She deserves a massive lair to herself, not a small place which she has to share with lesser creatures. Which is why I think it is silly so many of my kind spend their lives working on the lair. Polish the walls and the floors all you want, it isn't getting any bigger! I think more kobolds should come with me into the tunnels, and claim more of them in her name, you know? That means I'm doing important work! Unfortunately, the other kobolds don't seem to agree with me- they're worried the nasty Bluescales will take over the lair if they go out to claim more ground. Which, to be fair, is a valid concern. So, what I think we should do, is get rid of all the Bluescales, so we can expand further into the tunnels, with no fear of those wretches mucking things up while we're gone. That way, we get rid of the overpopulation, we make the lair bigger, and then maybe, the queen will be happy enough with us to come back home?

Appearance
What kind of small, weak individual are you? How do you dress? What sets you apart from all the others in the tribe? Are you a cute Kobold, or an ugly scary one?
I don't know why exactly, but for some reason my scales aren't red and shiny anymore. They used to be, but now, they're a dull grey. Like I said, no idea why. But it might have something to do with that one time when I got lost in this tunnel. Don't laugh, I don't usually get lost. But that one time, I was exploring an out of the way canyon, and these pesky Bluescales showed up. Long story short, they pushed me down a cliff, and I spent days trying to find my way back. Anyway, I found these black mushrooms there, and I was really hungry. So I ate some- they seemed safe enough. But I think that's when my scales began to lose their colour. At least they aren't blue, right?

Speaking of blue, my eyes are that color. Like, ice blue, and they glow in the dark a little. Not enough to be noticeable, but I've definitely had other kobolds say it is kinda like those spots you see after you've looked at a bright light. You're pretty sure there's nothing actually there, but you definitely see something.

Other than that, well, I dress in pretty average clothes. Not a lot of point in wearing heavy armour on long treks through the tunnels, or flashy garb when stalking muck-covered tunnels. I do have quite a bit of scarring- burn marks, from the oozes, you see? They're adorable little creatures, but it does kinda sting a little when they hug you! But at least the pinkish coloration of the scars breaks up the monotonous grey a bit, right?

Bluescales, yuk
What did the Bluescales do to you personally, that makes you dislike them? For bonus points, feel free to create a rough Bluescale NPC who wronged you some way, in the past.
There's this one Bluescale, Defkul, who is basically a colleague. However, where I try to tame and befriend the wild animals, he kills them. For sport. Right in front of me, sometimes! He's really nasty about it, too, and always laughs at me. Thinks he's better than me, just because he's smarter, and more reliable, and didn't bring that nest of baby Grells into the lair that one time. But isn't that just like those Bluescales, always acting like they're better than us?

Ah haha, man I had forgotten all about that game, but yes! That one was a lot less surly than this kobold though. Zetti has enough surly drunkenness to put dwarves to shame.

Name: Zatt
Race: He is not very good in a race, unless it is for food.
Class: Sorcerer (Wild Magic)
Background: Entertainer (He thinks anyway)

Personality: Due to his wild magic, Zatt is very nervous whenever he casts spells, even the small ones. He loves to be the center of attention and will do he best to make other red scales happy. He is a bit of a goofball, with high energy, talks really fast and always in third person. He may not be the smartest, and can be compulsive at times, acting without thinking.

Appearance: Zatt is on the smaller side as far as kolbolds go. That however does not stop him from being the center of attention. Wearing robes that he found, and are to big for him, Zatt often trips over his own feet. His scales are a vibrant red, leading him to believe he is the reddest of red scales.

Blue Scales Yuk! Being an entertainer, Zatt likes to "play music" his instrument of choice is a random stick he found. Zatt calls this stick Tap Tap, and it is his favoristist stick. One day he misplaced it and sadly can no longer find Tap Tap. Surely the nasty Blue Scales stoled it! They steel everything.

Backstory: Like all things Zatt does, his success with magic was purely by accident. It manifested itself at the worst opportune time. When he was young, Zatt was watching the elders of the tribe were doing a ritual and were trying to start a fire. They seemed to be having some trouble so Zatt made the same motions as those trying to ignite a small fire. A raging bonfire erupted out of nowhere and from then on, Zatt saw himself as the unofficial, official fire starter of the Red Scales.

The story of how he learned of the wild magic that flowed through him was also by accident. Being able to start fires at will made him popular with the tribe guards and scouts. Making it easy for them to get fire for torches. Zatt being the type of kolbold that enjoys showing off tried to make a bigger fire….as the spell finished, he was teleported into the Astral Plane for a few seconds. Within those few seconds, he saw a massive Astral whale swim by him. The creature turned and opened its mouth about to swallow the small lizard. After he popped back into the cave he was standing, Zatt was screaming. From then on, any time he cast a spell he would visibly shake, close his eyes and timidly cast a spell.

The hyper, constantly scared kobold found a stick and hit it against a rock. Laughing he started hitting everything in sight. Naming the stick Tap Tap, Zatt would tap on different objects to see what it sounded like. In his mind, Zatt was making others happy with his tapping. One very sad day, Tap Tap disappeared. Not knowing that he had simply set it down and could not remember where he put Tap Tap down, the obvious answer was an agent of the evil Blue Scales snuck in when he was not looking and took it out of jealousy.

@97mg Now I don't want to put more on your plate (and not sure if it would be practical for the adventure) but if there is a manageable number of applicants, would it be feasible to split us in half and have 2 separate threads for Red vs Blue? A quick find-replace can turn us from hating those dirty Bluescales to hating those dirty Redscales.

Again, not wanting to overburden you, just an idea that might be interesting
