The Kobold deities contend that they were once draconic deities who were
punished by Io for playing tricks upon him and his favored children. As a
result, he cursed the Kobolds to a humanoid shape and small stature to remind
them that they too small to contend with their stronger kin. Thrown to the
world in mortal form and striped of their wings, the kobolds were banished from
the skies. This angered Kurtulmak and he has been striving every since to
show the world that kobolds are still superior in magic and trickery than any
other race. Living within the earth, the kobolds are still strong in magic
due to their draconic blood and no longer desire to live in the skies again.
Due to an ancient encounter between Garl Glittergold and Kurtulmak, the kobold
deities hate the gnome pantheon above all others.
| Creation, Earth, Evil, Law, Trickery
||The father of the kobolds, Kurtulmak is the patron
of mining and warfare. He despises the gnome pantheon and his
followers try to thwart gnome interests wherever possible.
| Evil, Law, Protection, Trickery
||Gaknulak embodies the kobold's aptitude for
stealth, trickery, and traps. His followers are apt thieves and spies
who use cunning and traps to bring down prey that would normally be too much
for them to handle.
|| Charm, Evil, Knowledge, Magic
||Naksulimar is the deity whose clergy
negotiated the deal with the Gray Elves of Traykon. He is a cunning
and thoughtful deity who plans ahead and searches for ways to make future
generations of kobolds even stronger. Also the god of magic,
Naksulimar's clerics often multi-class as sorcerers.
