    Hear, hear! The more stuff we can do with them, the better. Tiny lizard people are an upgrade when compared to gnomes.

    Elves are, in fact, made from goblin souls by the moon. Two of the moons, sorry. At first glance, it's hard to believe that they are even remotely related to goblins. But upon closer examination, they're too pale, too thin, and dang, look at those ears. Because they are made from goblinstuff, they can interbreed with other goblinkin such as goblins, orcs, and kobolds. Yes, there are half-elf-half-kobolds.

    When in doubt, Hail Dread Cthulhu.

    Goblins:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Goblins are an unnatural race, as is only obvious by their wretched appearance and cowardice. Wizards in ancient times enslaved many races, most notably gnomes and halflings for their inferior fighting abilities. They were adept at fleeing and hiding however and the wizards became frustrated by them, so they began breeding programs to create a slave race that would submit meekly to their commands, would be able to live on next to nothing and would reproduce rapidly. Even their looks were designed to dehumanize them, making them ugly and distorted. The wizards maintained them as slaves for over a millennia before their empire collapse beneath the weight of their own hubris, and the goblins have been repeatedly enslaved by stronger races in need of labor or mobs to fill their ranks ever since.


    The Polymorph Principle:
    Spoiler
    Show

    This originates from a setting I worked on where the Marru and Marruspawn from 3.5 were a major part of the setting.

    The Polymorph Principle is that any two species of similar CRs can breed by being polymorphed into the same species and then coupling. Wizards now and in the old days before the Interdiction bred various monsters this way as experiments, but rarely do these new creations have the ability to procreate themselves.

    The actual breeding is simple: The male of the smaller creature is transformed into a male of the larger (the female must stay the original if the embryo is to be viable.) Then they are mind controlled or otherwise induced to breed.

    Nearly all unnatural beings originate in these experiments, for instance:
    Horse + Swan=Pegasus
    Horse + Eagle=Hippogriff
    Lion + Eagle=Gryphon
    Stinging Bat + Crocodile=Wyvern
    Wyvern + Fire Elemental=Red Dragon

    The basic combination of two creatures is the supernatural abilities, senses and movement of the smaller creature and combine it with the body of the larger. An Owlbear is perfectly nocturnal despite being a bear, and a Gryphon has the wings and eyes of an Eagle.

    Why use creatures as much overpowered as kobolds when we can instead use boxes full of animated axes?

    Because kobolds are adorable little scaly dog people and axes aren't.

    animated axes have the same result as kobolds but with less op spell flinging.
    and boxes full of animated axes can be disguised in adorable little scaly dog people.(provided the box have a similar size)
    And most kobolds are C sized so you must be really tall for finding them little.

    My eyes must be blind, because they can't see nothing good about kobolds.
    They are just as annoying as gnomes, if not more

    Is somebody around who uses them as something other than super cute things or things that automatically kills everything else?
    The combination of both doesn't count.

    They make great stand ins for slavery or child labor, they make good minions for bigger stronger things, and they are murderously cute. What more could you want from them?

    I mean they aren't one of the mysterious cool races, but there are dozens of those already.

    Oh? They look anything but cute to me O.O

    Not sure about all that, most of the time all it's found around is how silly hobgoblins tried to turn kobolds into submission and how kobolds killed every single of them because they are too cool for serve something other than dragons, who most of the time is nothing compared to it's servants, makes me wonder why the dragons are not the ones worshipping and slaved by the kobolds.

    We have a thread near the top of the sub-forum on alternate kobolds right now, you can take a look there.

    Also those kobolds don't even have candles on their heads!
