So, need some advice on kobolds.
Now, I tend to keep a small group, and I know each of them individually. One of mine has taken to worshiping our gods, begging them to be made a dragon himself. He started taking some kind of rare earth salt they've started concentrating for their divination spells pretty heavily, trying to commune with them. I thought he was crazy, that all of them were, getting stoned out of their minds and hallucinating things. It was funny for a while, even, watching them stagger around, but he's started changing.
I caught him eating my sloughed scales and bits of casting metals - the pieces too small to be worked individually, you know - a few days ago, he had a stockpile of them, and I barely recognized him. His scales looked heavier, rougher, his claws more like talons, his horns were larger, and, well everyone knows that kobolds are barely taller than a human's knee and scrawny like a wet cat? He was almost as big as a human child of ten summers, muscled like a small dwarf, and walked hunched-over, hand to foot. I even think I saw spurs forming on his upper back, like a pair of wings trying to form.
I don't want to kill him, but this is unnerving. I know they're descended from us, but seeing that bloodline connection manifest...
