    My kobold just got hugged.

    We were starting a new game, everyone introduced our characters, and such. Mine is a tough kobold mercenary trying to seek his fortune and become rich. Hers is an elf barbarian who, immediately upon seeing my character, went over and called him cute.

    After a short conversation, where she pretty much acted like he was a puppy and he tried to convince her that he wasn't and that he was a serious mercenary and killing machine, she grabbed him into a tight hug. The DM called for strength checks, and I failed by rather wide margin, leaving me squeezed by this elf until I was docile and stopped squirming.

    In-character, the poor kobold was shaken by the experience, extremely confused and with a serious hit in his manliness. Out of character, however, I now know that she browses /tg/: I know what you people think of your "cutebolds", and it's clear she got the attitude from you and added it to our game.

    Anyway, how do I gain revenge in a way that makes clear sense in-character, and will deal with the situation but is harmless enough to not make her butthurt OOC?

    And by "rape" I mean "noserub".

    Boast in character. Claim the she should treat the champion of the Kobolds with more respect. If you don't have any accomplishments, make some up.

    Well, it's not exactly manly to take out petty revenge. That's something like the women in an office do against each other. The only realistic way you have of proving your manliness is to find a situation where you can save her or stand up for her when she is vulnerable.

    Problem, OP?

    But seriously, challenge her to some sort of test that you'd be sure to win, she'd probably humor you because she doesn't take you seriously, so make sure to thoroughly trounce her, but don't rub it in. Earn your respect.

    Treat her like a stereotypical woodsy prancey elf until she gets angry at you, then kick her in the shin and tell her that now she knows how it feels.

    Find out where she could've gotten that kind of an attitude from in the first place. The campaign world doesn't have its own 4chan where elves and humans can squee about cutebolds, now does it? Kobolds are still ugly buggers IC.

    It is kobold like to take out revenge in a way most sinister, traps, spikes, pits, the lot. use them.

    Or just make a trap that will grab her by the foot with some rope and suspend her in the air for a bit, forget what they are called. Then threaten her with a pointy stick.

    Just grope her or grab her ass next time. It's as simple as that. If she still thinks it's cute, and wants hugs... WEll, that's what inter-species relationships are for.

    Overcompensate: Be completely misogynistic.
    Complain about her failures, e.g. hair, soft weak skin, lack of scales, egg-laying, trap-making, tunneling ability.

    The player will think its cute, and thus won't be offended.
    You'll drum up humorous party conflict, it'll be fun.

    While this actually undercuts your character's manly dangerousness, the easiest way to re-acquire it is by being evil to NPCs. The cognitive dissonance of cute-but-actually-evil will make her brain hurt.

    Also, don't forget to play up the fact that your moral code is alien.
    The weak exist to be taken advantage of by the strong, etc. etc.
    Express confusion or derision, and use argumentative fallacies when she attempts to discuss it with you:
    You: "Why do the weak exist if I am not supposed to eat them?"
    Her: "Good tree loveness."
    You: "This is why elves die so easily. They do not even make good slaves, always crying and mourning grass."

    Respect her strength (and so do not challenge her physically), but mock her weak unwillingness to use it.

    This probably doesn't help you but I just love the idea of a deadly mercenary who is constantly undercut because of him being a cute little lizard. Seriously, I'd play along with it, sounds like a hilarious character concept

    Really that sounds like an awesome story and you should totally roll with it. Just do your job. Try to be tough and independant. Help her out. Prove you're a tough kobold and in time she may come to respect you, while, in time, your little kobold may come to the realization that it's okay if one particular cute elf chick thinks he's adorable.

    Basically that whole encounter is adorable and you should totally milk it for heartwearming and plot.

    You're travelling in the wilderness when you come across a band of kobolds with a captive elf. The kobolds look lustful as they rub their muzzles against her nose and cheek, while she herself looks simply confused and slightly weirded out. Even as you watch, you can hear her starting to explain them what they really should do in this kind of a situation: every single kobold is completely shocked and horror-struck.

    This tribe's sleeping like a dwarf
    trapped inside of an pit trap.
    Magic can keep you breathing
    but what happens when you find a new war's begun?
    End the source and turn it off, you won't be able to breathe.
    So either way you're a casualty.

    I've got this burning like my veins are filled
    with nothing but lamp oil.
    And with a spark,
    it's gonna be the biggest fire they've ever seen.
    Cut me down or let me run,
    either way it's all gonna burn...
    The only way that they'll ever learn

    We've got to end this

    Slay the dragon

    Light up the caves!

    There is a spirit that these ‘heroes’ can't hide.
    There are the embers of a fire that's gone out,
    But I can still feel the heat in my soul
    This mess we're in, well you and I,
    maybe you and I,
    We can still make it right.

    Maybe we can bring back the light.

    At the heart of the dungeon there is a dragon that looks down over all there is.
    And the Lich in the tower controls it all without raising a single fist.
    It's like they gathered up our people, they sold them to Asmodeus, and now
    It's gone to hell and they wonder how.

    You're trying to understand, I told you your egg brother had been killed,
    Yet here he stands in the very shadow of the dragon you came here to destroy.
    You came here to avenge His burning, you came here to save Koboldkind...
    Can you see now, you cannot do both?

    Tell me now, is there a reptile among you here,
    Is there no one who will stand up and try to fight?
    Tell me lizards, is there not one in all your tribes,
    Is there no one who values ‘boldness over life?

    They looked to me once, now they turn to you
    Do you understand now, do you see that the truth is
    They don't want to change this, they don't want a hero
    They just want a martyr, a tale to raise

    I've given everything I can, there are no heroes left in Snb’venden.

    So it begins, no matter which one of us wins
    The tunnels we're standing on will break and cave away.
    You will slay, and when you slay you slay alone,
    And in the end you'll see there was no other way.

    I've been here before, I've stood where you stand,
    They've come for the hero, the hero of Snb’venden,
    But why should we save them, when they stand for nothing;
    If they do survive let them stand for themselves.

    We've given everything we can, there are no heroes left in Snb’venden.
    They'll watch you die to save their lives,
    They will not stand here by your side.

    We've given everything we can, there are no heroes left in Snb’venden.
    Surround and watch as we decide,
    The very fate, of all our kind.

    I just had a strange image. Four deities are gathered around a table; Dorf god of blacksmithing and love; Elf god of archery and poetry; human god of war and merchants; kobold's only deity.
    Human deity:
    >My people can be inspired by a blast of lightning or an enchanted sword, which will guide them to forge new worlds out of respect. Their strengths are versatility and stamina. When I meet them in the afterlife, I judge them by their deeds and the worthy may live in my kingdom.
    Dorf god:
    >My people can be inspired by a voice from the depths or a large jewel, which will guide them to create a lasting culture of wisdom. Their strengths are tradition and prowess. In the afterlife, I judge them by their thoughts, and allow the purest to join my mines into eternity.
    Elf god:
    >My people can be inspired by a beautiful waterfall or a strong-yet-flexible metal. Their strengths are artistic talent and all things longbow. When they die, I judge them by their contribution to their people and allow the most pleasing to forever roam my forest.
    The kobold goddess, she smiles softly and says:
    >My people can be inspired by a tragedy or mishap. Their strengths are fast breeding and skills with ambushes. When they die, I do not judge them and give each one but a single hug before I let them choose how to spend their afterlife.
    Each deity looks to the kobold goddess and says:
    >But, why only a hug for each one?
    She smiles broadly, proud as she replies..
    >Because I have so many children and I can not be bothered with judging them, nor so selective with whom is allowed to join me.

    To be a kobold is to be unloved in this life ... but in the afterlife, it is to be hugged by your creator and told it was all worth it.

    And you wondered why they were so motivated.

    Dragon Wily: Tonight, the tunnels are red
    The torches are hot and blinding
    No sign of the good trap chief
    But the banshees wail and whine and
    Tell us who you've found

    I can almost hear the weasels

    What kind of kobold
    Builds a machine to kill a dragon-child?
    No, he did not use his paws
    Like a true kobold, he used a tool
    But just the same
    Can you question who's to blame?
    Choir: What was her name?

    The Good Trapper has to pay!

    When I say he was a monster
    When I set fire to his name
    It doesn't matter where you hear it from
    He will know the dragons flame.

    Whatever's in the horde pays!

    There is a flame that I've been breathing
    There is a fire waiting to catch
    There's a battle that has been building
    From the moment we first met
    If there ever was a time
    If there ever was a chance
    To undo the things I've done
    And wash these bloodstains from my claws
    It is past and long forgotten
    These are the paths that we must take
    'Cuz you and I, Tom, we are reptiles
    And we can bend, and we can break
    But if you think that you can run
    If you think that you can stand
    Well, you forget who turned this tribe on
    You forget who fed this tribe

    No one was left who could remember how it had happened, how the dungeon had fallen under darkness.
    At least no one who would do anything.
    No one who would oppose the undead.
    No one who would challenge their power, or so Dracolich Wily believed...

    Twenty Floors above the dark streets of the city, Trap master. Light lived in a run-down tenement.
    An eccentric and brilliant ‘bold. Light was a loner, a thinker, a kobold of ideas.
    Ideas forbidden in Wiley's dungeon.
    The dungeon for which he worked.
    The dungeon in which he lived.
    The dungeon that he would set free.
    And so Light worked, far into the night, when the watchful eyes of Wiley's creatures weren't upon him.
    He'd set his skillful hands to the task of creating a device to bring about a change, to create a machine to bring freedom, to create a kobold to save the world.
    Twelve years Light worked and on a cold night in the year 200X, Protokobold was born.
    A perfect clockwork kobold, an unbeatable machine, hell-bent on destroying every evil standing between the tribes and freedom, built for one purpose, to destroy Wiley's army of evil heroes and drakes.
    Ready, willing, prepared to fight

    And as the smoke cleared. Wiley rose above the countless robots remaining. Protobold was wounded, low on tricks and traps, struggling to remain standing as Wiley ordered the final attack.

    The death of Protobold.

    The crowd had gathered there to watch him fall, to watch their hopes destroyed. They watched them beat him, they watched them break him, they watched his last traps deployed.
    There was not a kobold among them who could let himself be heard.
    But from the crowd, from the collective fear, arose these broken words:
    We are the dead
    We are the dead

    Kobold Choir: What have we done?
    Narrator: We are the dead
    Kobold Choir: What will we do?
    Narrator: We are the dead
    Kobold Choir: Where will we turn?
    Narrator: We are the dead
    Kobold Choir: Is there nothing we can do?
    Narrator: We are the dead
    Kobold Choir: How did it come to this?
    Narrator: We are the dead
    Kobold Choir: How did we go so wrong?

    >I now know that she browses /tg/
    All the people I have played with thought that cobolds (and often goblins) were cute, to the point of using them as mascots and dressing them up and having cohorts of cobolds only. And I assure you they didn't know about cutebolds nor 4chan.
    They just look cute in the monster manual and a little thing acting tough is always cute.

    Well, kobolds are "usually lawful evil", so you might just slit her throat when she sleeps.

    Then again, you could do the very kobold thing of getting even. Eat bad kebab and shit in her bedroll when she isn't looking.

    Kobolds are strong enough to be useful, small enough to be harder to hit and fast enough to breed in those who qualify for the first two aspects.

    Beyond that, they live under your child's bed and talk to them at night.

    I'm not sure if going full evil in response to being called cute is the best way to handle this situation. She might be annoying, but she is an allied party member after all.

    The next chance OP gets he should clear a path for an infiltrating party by brutally murdering a whole roomful of people in their sleep. “Cute” really doesn’t fly too well when you come back to the party 15 minutes later covered in blood with a string of ears. Or you could come back and give the all clear totally clean, only to lead them through a room become an abattoir of unspeakable carnage.

    I'm a little disappointed that 95% of the suggestions on how to be tough amount to "be vicious and needlessly cruel". The only ways /tg/ can think up to be manly are to kill people in their sleep, murder innocent NPCs, etc.?
    I understand the guy's a kobold so he'd have a slightly different set of ethics but come on, there are better ways to prove you're serious than to kill someone. That's what a fucking pedantic Hollywood villain would do to prove that he's serious. Strength is more than that, and I think it's necessary to realize that especially when the other party is a Barbarian.

    She's a barbarian right? Ask her what's the biggest thing she has hunted, slay something bigger, make it a competition in your downtime until the only thing left to slay is the Tarrasque. She should respect you after you one up her once or twice, then it's just a game.

    Use your sly Kobold ways to lead her into a mostly harmless trap that marginalizes her abilities.

    In a somewhat related sense, I've also got a kobold predicament I'd love to get a quick bit of advice on. I'm playing in a 3.5 game where the party all decided to be Dwarves and have an awesome time Dwarfin it up, a recent addition to the game decided to play a kobold. Our Dwarves fortress state is currently fending off a rather large kobold combined assault. How do I make sure this man isn't slaughtered by the rest of the party, or any NPC's in our area?

    Best way to deal with it would be to not give a fuck.
    You're a soldier, your job is to kill shit, she might not realize that yet, but you are a professional.
    As long as they pay you well and you're in a job; who cares what you have to do for the money? Parade; body guard duty; killing, sometimes it's going to be slightly embaressing when you have to look after a spoilt princess or whatever; but as long as the gold keeps flowing in, why let it bother you?
    Just take that one as part of the job, you know you're a damn good fighter and eventually, she's going to click to that too.

    I'll help with a little story of mine: We're playing an all Dwarf campaign and in it there's an oncoming war with the Elves. Now we'd usually not even consider trying to get the Kobolds on our side, but our other efforts... brought less than fortunate fruit.

    Now we hear word of an underground (my DM made a witty pun out of that, can't remember it) bard who was rumoured to be fairly high up in Kobold society but left it to go around playing music. Now he was in trouble, so we resolve his isssues with the Dwarf mafia.

    Now our DM makes this Kobold Bard, Kobold Elvis. Long story short, he inspires the Kobolds to join us through rock and roll. It was pretty cool.

    Alright I'll jus- waaaaait a second.

    But seriously now, on to kobolds.

    So who's ever run a campaign where Kobolds are one of, if not the, top powers of the setting? I was thinking of doing something along those lines although I'm not sure quite how they'd do that.

    I'm thinking two factors: Kobolds are fairly handy when it comes to technology, and there's a fuckload of them. Lots of quite well equipped kobolds, maybe not top of the line equipment or the best trained but any faults that leads to is covered by numbers.
    >> Anonymous 11/09/10(Tue)11:45 No.12736931
    The thing is, about half of kobold appeal comes from the underdog thing. If they're a leading power, they're no longer underdogs. Goodbye half their appeal.

    If you want to go through with this, you need to make it secret. Make everybody think kobolds are weak and pathetic, but secretly they're one of the world's leading powers. Kinda like Illuminati or whatever.

    Depends on how long they've had to live there - if they've gone thorugh a couple of breeding cycles, the 'bolds will just drown the fucking thing. A minor setback at best. If they only just moved in (the forges attract it once fired or something), they're gonna be running in a hurry.

    So it really depends on the nature of the calamity. Could be a plague, which is the best case scenario - it's not gonna come back to eat them. Or it could be a pit fiend, shadow dragon, or any number of other extremely nasty things in the worst case.

    True! I was just pulling out monsters that might easily beat down a moderate sized dwarf stronghold by themselves, but you could totally used the Shadow Dragon as a kind of backing for the Kobold world power thing. They conquer the world in its name, it gets food, treasure, and security of its own while protecting them from things they can't beat themselves.

    This... is actually shaping into a decent idea...

    There's a solution to that, though - kill the dragon. Maybe another dragon challenges it, or it heads up to the surface for some good old fashioned pillaging of its own. Whatever excuse you use to get it to the surface, or at least out of its lair and into the outlying areas of the underdark, it finds a battle it thinks it can win but doesn't.

    When the dragon doesn't come back, the Kobolds carry on. Their numbers are great, they're well stocked and fortified, and now the only chains that bound them are broken.

    Kobold mating rituals are unique, to say the least. The ritual begins when the kobolds rub noses together. This act releases hormones in the kobolds' brains, which creates warm, happy feelings in the kobold and prepares the body for mating. When the kobold's reproductive system is engaged, their faces turn red.
    Kobolds lost their external genitalia long ago, and inseminate externally by pressing their abdomens together in an act that, to an outsider, resembles a hug.
    Different kobold cultures treat non-noserubbing hugs differently. Some tribes only hug lovers, while other tribes will hug as a greeting between friends.

    this is how kobolds now work in my setting

    Here. Not the best writer but thought I could sketch out some more ideas...

    Thinking about the Kobold World Power thing a little more, I someone suggested stealing shit from gnomes. So lets go ahead and steal that idea....

    Kobolds find an abandoned dwarven citadel, make it their new home. Whatever killed the dwarves who used to occupy the place comes back after the Kobolds have shored up their numbers - so they kill it, though it's a difficult battle and almost 75% of the fighting population dies as a result.. Years pass as they replenish their losses and make new weapons and armor from all the metal they can melt down in their stolen forges. They also make armor for the best scouts from the skin of... whatever it was that killed the dwarves. Dragon, demon, whatever.

    Once they've got a fighting army again, they find a Deep Gnome city within reach of their army. It's pretty far away, but they can make it there without stretching supplies too thin (and hey, if supplies thin out anyway there's plenty of shit to eat in the underdark). No longer content to merely scavenge what they find, they sack the city and make off with as much Gnome tech as possible.

    Years pass again as the Kobolds figure out as much of the clockwork as they can. Occasionally they send more raiding parties to the city, to snatch more gnome tech and keep them from recovering their losses. The raids also train their commanders in more sophisticated arts of war, and give them elite veterans to work with. After the gnomes abandon the city, The kobolds move to take it for their own - adding a second city to their holdings and alleviating the population pressures beginning to take their toll on the dwarven headquarters...

    The kobolds gain a greater understanding of the gnomish war engines, which they'd been unable to take away from the city until the gnomes abandoned them. Using sheer numbers, the extensive resources left behind in the city itself (they don't have much use for many of the buildings), and a lot of trial and error, they build many of their own to complement their numbers...

    Unfortunately, population pressures are straining the food. The military commanders send squads out to find a cave or city in which they can find food and more shelter. One of the scouts finds a huge set of caverns with water and plenty of open space for farming, but the complex is occupied by thousands of goblins. The commanders know there's no way to clear the caverns with a bunch of half-trained kobolds...

    But they have an army. A trained, equipped army backed up with gnomish war machines and kobold wizards and sorcerers. And they have gnomish alchemy recipes for alchemists fire, and damn it they can take on a bunch of stinking goblins even if the number advantage isn't working for them now. (I assume goblins and kobolds have roughly the same breeding speed)
    >> Anonymous 11/09/10(Tue)15:49 No.12738923

    The kobolds figure that driving the goblins towards the surface is the best option - the surface races can deal with them then, and the kobolds can knock down the tunnels behind the goblins to keep them from coming back.

    The battle takes over a week, moving from cavern to cavern with the war engines. During the battle, a kobold wizard riding in one of the machines realized it was a lot easier for him to shoot fireballs through one of the gaps in the armor than it was standing out where everyone could see him. The combination of magic and clockwork heavy weapons is too much for the goblins, who finally begin their retreat through the only tunnels the kobolds haven't yet taken - the ones that go up.

    Half a century later, the kobolds clear out the tunnels and make their own way up. Their corner of the Underdark is running out of space to hold them - destiny awaits on the surface.

    This; could actually turn out vaguely and weirdly romantic. Imagine it, the little kobold carrying the wounded elf bruiser chick up from the underground ruins with all the strength he's got, over-the-threshhold style, and she's fading in and out of consciousness, and only realizes her rescuer was him later on. He doesn't talk about it, but she's totally blown away.

    They find great plains above.

    When they first emerge, they work quickly to determine the surroundings. Shockingly, the goblins aren't dead - but their numbers are greatly reduced. Dozens of farming villages are burned to their foundations - the goblins killed all the opposition, but it took time and they suffered for it. The kobolds bring out as many soldiers as they can and crush the goblins once and for all. Then, they build. The structures are crude, made from rough stone hauled up by thousands of laboring kobolds, but they work fast, and soon they have their own town - a town based on a mix of dwarf and gnomish architecture made with kobold aesthetics. Two more towns spring up before the nearest human nation notices - but when they do, they come in force, and with the intent to drive the kobolds from the surface and claim the lands as their own.

    The first town fell quickly, half-built and poorly defended as it was. The second stalled the human army for weeks, until the commander pulled back to avoid winter. The human king asked his neighbors for support, but the threat was considered too minor and too far to deal with by the larger nations.

    When the army came again, better equipped and better prepared, they found the first city rebuild and heavily fortified with seige engines rivaling anything they had. After a series of major defeats, other nations took notice and sent aid. The combined coalition drove the kobolds from their towns back to the Underdark.

    And they should have stopped there. In the caves, the kobolds pulled on all the experience they'd gained fighting enemies above and below ground and utterly decimated the combined human forces. They rose up again after the next winter, and had years to build up before the humans could amass another coalition - they couldn't make it nearly as far, this time, but they were also smart enough to quit before they all died.

    As the kobolds fill up the spaces between nations, the humans stop attacking and start fortifying. The kobolds stop short of the human borders and began to fortify their new country as well. After a series of minor wars, both sides realize that no one is going anywhere - and humans, being humans, adapt and start trade and diplomacy. And the first kobold world power is born.

    Well, that took longer than expected.

    Damn, the second I posted I had another idea.

    The kobold's science advances too far, too fast. The wizards, slowly becoming obsolete in the face of mass produced gunpowder and fearing the worst with all the industrial blasting, flee their homeland in search of better prospects.

    Some time after, one of the master-craftbolds, working with the remaining wizards, figures out how to combine magic and machine to create the first flying clockwork war machine. Unlike gnomish flying contraptions, this is a true ship of the sky - the landlocked kobolds know little of shipbuilding but have done a fearsome job none-the-less. Production is limited because of the sheer physical resources required to make them, and the shortage of wizards, but outlying nations fear for their future and begin fortifying the borders once again, this time with an eye to the air.

    Powered by magical fires and armed with cannons that fire steel balls filled with alchemists fire, the first ship created is used to put down a rebellion led by polymorphed mercenaries hired by a disgruntled neighbor to cause trouble. The ship does its job only to well, singlehandedly obliterating the entire rebellion in less than an hour.

    War seems inevitable once again - the forges beneath the earth are refired, and kobold scouts and messengers are sent forth to call back the wayward wizards.

    You make her keep her promise.

    In kobold warrior society, if a female hugs you, it is a proposal for marriage. You politely declined, but she proved her strength to you by taking you by force, so you now belong to her.

    Now, as her betrothed, you must bring her gifts to demonstrate your ability to add to her clan's wealth. In the dark of night, murder seven men and leave them near her horse.
    To inform her of your plan, or to tell her you are doing it would be an act of cowardice for your people, a puling beg for approval. She knows it is you, because she is a warrior and has claimed you.

    Continue leaving corpses near her horse until she accepts your gifts, and formalizes the marriage as you have proven your value to her.

    This will make for some neat roleplay, fuck with her (especially if you take the GM aside and explain that this is to be a surprise), and if you are lucky it will nail her with a murder beef from the local magistrates. :D

    In the meanwhile, always call her "mistress", and arrange duels for her as a way to provide her greater opportunities to demonstrate her strength to the world. This is all with the attitude that you truly ARE doing her a favor, as you are increasing her reputation, which is all a warrior has, amirite?

    If you are going the stand-offish or SUPER KOBOLD MANLINESS NO HUG ZONE route, exploit her thinking your kobold is cute by asking to ride on her shoulder or in her backpack. Play it off as cutesy koboldry for a while. Then, insist on reigns with a bridle and bit. Order her around as a lackey and flaunt your manly kobold prowess for taming the wild beast and making it saddle-worthy.

    Basically, let her buy into the whole "he's so adorable and snuggly" deal and then completely reverse it on her. Hilarity is sure to follow, especially if you build up to it by casually inquiring or gauging her measurements(related to the saddling, of course), confusing merchants with innocent questions about how they'd rig a proper riding harness on a biped about her size, etc.

    I know this thread is autosaging and my two cents doesn't count for much at this point, but one thing that came to my mind as I read of all the macho things people are suggesting is this: the elf is a barbarian. It might very well be that she finds the kobold cute because the kobold is a deadly killer who is also puny. If he challenged her, or came back covered in the blood of his slain enemies, she'd be like "Aaawwww! He is so vicious! That is so cute! Squeeee!"

    So, she probably knows he is a serious mercenary - and that is adorable.

    Hey, whoever posted all those useless bumps, and Protomen arguments one way or the other, any chance you could remove those? (No need to remove Protomen songs and the other cool stuff.) Removing a shitload of pointless posts would add some extra life to the thread.

    Well, I guess not then. Page 15 is here, thread death within minutes.
