does this really need a +1 to cr?

Dark Archive

No, but you'd bump it up to a higher fractional CR. In this case CR 1/4 becomes CR 1/3.

When in doubt, compare it to other monsters.

Without really looking at anything, I'd move it from the normal kobold's CR 1/4 to CR 1/3 like most "normal" races with only an NPC level. The natural armor is . . . something, but it loses Dex and size bonuses. The boosts to Str and Con coupled with the penalty to Dex put it more in line with a normal race.

Edit: Ninja'd anyway. : D

Increase it's size category one more time and it can be a "Kobolossus". :P

I thought giant kobolds were called lizardfolk?

Grand Lodge

and 3.5 had the dragonborn, which essentially ended up looking like giant kobolds half the time. I do like the idea of bigger kobolds, since kobolds are so dang useless otherwise...
