Whether you love them or loath them, someone at the table is trying to dunk on kobolds. They’re often used as low-level fodder, but they’re way more unique and fun than that. They’re tiny, distant relatives to dragons, and they have many of the same features and abilities as dragons, though to a far lesser extent. Their dragon-like form also grants them features even dragonborn lack.Continue reading “Kobolds Are More than Early-Game Punching Bags.

This is an excerpt from One Page Lore: Fantasy Folk. Orcs and details on 20 other fantasy folk (including halflings, gnomes, lizardfolk, and more) each have their own one-page entry. You can purchase it at rexiconjesse.itch.io/one-page-lore-fantasy-folk.
Orcs are way more interesting than just being total beefcakes. I don’t see much lore about them going into what it would mean to be so naturally strong or how they differ from other folk on a biological level. They don’t have to be warlike or tribal to stand out. Orcs can exist in a variety of ways. They have their own unique abilities and drawbacks.Continue reading “Orcs are More than Beefcakes with an Axe: One Page Lore: Orcs”
