    Default kobold question

    Do kobolds have kneecaps?

    I'm revamping my blog. slightly new look, very new name, hopefully some new content soon.
    It's called Diceroller Flicks Goblin on The Grid and it's centered around RPG themed films and other stuff I want to put up.

    Most likely, yes. However, it would heavily depend on what you mean by "kobold". Palladium Fantasy's Kobolds are, after all, short, viscious, elf-like creatures. Early D&D made them dog-like, only slowly morphing into the dragon-like versions you see in WD&D. However, since I consider dragons to be monotremes, I think it's still likely they have them.

    I mean the D&D ones, i figure that the reptilian bodies would have a more birdlike build, and the bend in a birds leg is it's ankle, right?

    So, I'm going with a "generally, yes".

    [Edit]: All but two of those (1st and 3rd) are D&D kobolds. Well, 5th is PF kobold, but same difference, eh?

    Both birds and most mammals have a kneecap.

    However, with birds (and dogs and cats, for that matter), what we think of as the "foot" is actually just the toes. Like humans, they have an upper leg, a knee, and what corresponds to our foot and ankle... they just walk on their toes.
