Musicus Rating[edit]

Musicus Meter
Score: 5-5.5
This race scored 5-5.5 with the Musicus Meter race guidelines (score between 4 and 6 to an absolute maximum of 8). This metric may represent this page, or not. This is a guideline, not a rule, and it's important to use your own judgment alongside this scoring.
This scoring may be the groundwork for a focused {{needsbalance}} usage. A contributor to this page may request a detailed breakdown of this page's balance. Without this information, {{needsbalance}} may then be removed. This meter cannot be used to enforce needsbalance templates.
This template should only be placed on a race's talk page. If this template is not placed on the talk page, please move it.

Alternate Subrace Trait[edit]

While this has the quality and balance to be considered the new standard for all kobolds, even above Volo's, I offer one possible tweak to the Burrows Kobold subrace, replacing the Ambusher trait:

Precision Stabbing. All simple and martial weapons that deal piercing damage count as having the Finesse property for you.

((This particularly lets you use Dex with spears and war picks, while also thematically extending to mining picks. This gives some explanation and use to the kobold's normally stated proficiency at mining and tunneling.))
