From D&D Wiki

Legend say they where once Gnomes, taken from their village by Dragons and forced to work in mines. After centuries of slavery they've become more like their dragon masters and less like their gnomish ancestors. Finding freedom, some of them came back to the little people's society, but adapting to this new lifestyle has proven to be difficult.

Kobolds are usually neutral, tending toward chaos more then law. Centuries of tyranny has taught Kobolds to look out for themselves before anyone else.


A lot of Kobolds still live in the mines and caverns of their dragon overlord, however a few have reintegrated into gnome society and have chosen lives among them. They usually prefer to stay underground, feeling at home in dark, dank tunnels.
