This thread became incredibly pure and I love it. ^_^

It'd be really interesting if they became one of very few small races to not have the automatic -2 to Strength, heh. Like, if they were +Dex, +Int, -Wis, or something?

But not having either -2 Str or Con would be pretty different from pretty much everything we know about kobolds!

Goblins already have no Str penalty, suffering a Wis penalty instead. Making Kobolds too similar to Goblins is definitely a bad call.

Thanks for that, I genuinely completely forgot what goblins got in 2E and was going off their 1E stats, heh.

But yeah, I don't think they need to overcomplicate it with multiple penalties, or bonuses to two mental scores, or anything. I'd be quite happy with +Dex/+Int/-Str.

No problem. I'm always happy to be of assistance. :)

This is my favored distribution as well. Very consistent with their portrayal and a unique distribution mechanically.

I also think with ancestry feats, heritages and the floating bonus, raw stat similarities don't matter so much in causing ancestries to feel too similar.

That's true in the long term, I agree. In the short term, the small number of Ancestries and lack of many specific combinations make me still inclined to want new and different distributions, especially for thematically similar Ancestries (which Goblins and Kobolds are in many ways).

Since Kobolds can be diverse among themselves, what about two free ability boosts as Humans?

I'm all for Kobold-only feats to make them look adorable and plushie until they start to burn everything around them as sorcerers or pierce someone's eyes with their spears.

Well, the free +2 that all Ancestries get lets everyone be diverse now, and I don't see low Dex or high Str Kobolds as normal or common. I definitely don't see them as more diverse than Halflings or Elves, to pick two random examples.

Well kobold are know miners and mining is definitely str and while I do agree +2/+2 seems to not fit kobolds. But I do hope they change kobold -2 to something other than str or con...

While light, Plushies aren't that agile.

Does anybody feel that, although goblins are Paizo's brand recognition, the new Kobolds would fit the CRB (and the scenario) better?

Yes.

By "The scenario" do you mean Age of Ashes?

In that case, yes, a kobold pc would really shine in that ap.

Personally I still think that goblins are so iconic and unique in PF that they're the best choice for the CRB.

I certainly hope plushies kobolds reach those lofty heights one day, though!

Bold plushies are best plushies.

Oh, silly me. Not scenario, but setting, Golarion as a whole.

I don't know, I'm just in love with the new kobolds and have so many good ideas for them. I'll probably make an important and silly Kobold as my first villain.

I actually recall a time, back when, when kobolds WERE the humanoids that got name-dropped on Paizo's voicemail...

15 minutes with the plushy bolds should do trick and 'change'his opinion.

No, Plushies.

I mean, you’ve gotta build up to the plushies. You first stick them in the comfy chair before you bring the plushies in.

It’s more like a small pit and I just pile the plushies on them so they’re comfy.

Ah, the infamous kobold plush trap (or is it plush kobold trap), from which few can escape. {shake's fist at the fiendishly clever Tucker}

Edit: Makes mental note to stat up plush critter version of Sarlacc pit. ("In its belly, you will find a new definition of comfort and snuggling as you are slowly, blissfully digested over a thousand years.")

May the gods forgive me...but Oblivion Oath's Iruxi and this thread inspired me to do THIS.
