    Kobold


    The infamous kobold, centerpiece of a number of exploits I won't bother listing all here.

    There isn't really a lot I can say here. Kobolds make good sorcerers, decent rogues and reasonable bards. They have wildly unbalanced stats, light sensitivity, some natural weapons and armor, darkvision, and a handful of skill bonuses. +0 LA, which everyone hopefully agrees with.

    Note that kobolds are much weaker (potentially enough for a -0) if not built well. A constitution penalty and lack of real racial traits will see to that.

    And before anyone asks: no, Dragonwrought is not enough reason to give kobolds a LA. Balance efforts should be directed at the feat, not the broader group that can take it.

    Have you had enough of unreasonably high LA's and unplayable monsters in 3.5? Then check out the LA-assignment thread! Don't hesitate to give feedback!
