That . . . looks . . . AWESOME! It will be hard for anyone to better this Kobold Monster Card. It's not a grunt, but it is gorgeous. I'd love to see that image fit on the back of the Kobold Trickster Spell Card.

Do all kobolds know the trickster spells or only certain ones?

Only certain ones. Big Bene came up with the concept of a Kobold with a folklore feel. It's not like the mob Kobolds, so the Kobold Trickster has his own thematically driven spell set. The Spell Cards are meant to be uniquely usable by the Trickster. Kinda like a Wizard of Morcar.

What do you all think about this picture as symbol for the Kobold?

Image


Advantage is, it is already included in Heroscribe. It's today in "Dungeons & Dragons: The Fantasy Adventure Board Game" --> Goblin (DND's)
If it's chosen, it would spawn a twin under a different name (say, "Kobold") into a folder called "HQ25".

I know how to make a new folder and put all the HQ25 symbols inside, that would be the easy part.

I don't think that picture should be on the regular kobold card. It should be on the kobold trickster card instead.

It looks more like a goblin to me.

That's a D&D boardgame goblin.
That being said, the card Anderas made shows a goblin with horns in my eyes and goblin and kobold almost have the same meaning pre-fantasy.

It looks even more like a goblin once you have extracted a Hi-Fi-Picture from the eps. I thought it had some kind of feathers around the ears! It shows once again that one has to be VERY careful with the details to show on the icon. Too much is too much in this small size.

Image

Why can I do everything with eps files, even balance them on my nose while I walk on my hands, only I cannot make Heroscribe accepting my eps files?
