    Why does everyone want a race that surely has -2 to every stat.

    Though I must admit I would love to see a kobold plushie

    Actually, it would be:
    -4 Strength, +2 Dexterity, -2 Constitution
    +1 search
    +1 natural AC
    Small size

    In short: They'd be horrible as PCs in DDO.

    Not that bad of stats if you ask me.

    the probable reason we have not seen/will never see a Kobold Plushie is that, while Warner Bros. owns the rights to DDO, the Dungeons and Dragons franchise itself still remains the property of Wizards of the Coast.

    so while WB and Turbine are probably aware of the incredible earning potential of Kobold Phushies, they probably never will release one due to legal issues

    Default Prior art

    Bollocks. The concept, the name, everything has prior art dating centuries back.

    From Wikipedia: The kobold (occasionally cobold) is a sprite stemming from Germanic mythology and surviving into modern times in German folklore. Although usually invisible, a kobold can materialise in the form of an animal, fire, a human being, and a candle. The most common depictions of kobolds show them as humanlike figures the size of small children. Kobolds who live in human homes wear the clothing of peasants; those who live in mines are hunched and ugly; and kobolds who live on ships smoke pipes and wear sailor clothing.

    Not really. I think Turbine is busy enough with selling software, and they concentrate there. If you want to make business with Kobold Plushies you want to sell A LOT, not 10.000 (very optimistic)

    Yeah, it's beed discussed many times. A lot of us really want it. Especially if they're anything like the Dragonwrought Kobolds from 3.5 Edition.

    Ok, so the stats are sucky(-4 Str, +2 Dex, -2 Con), but they're just awesome. I'm totally for the Playable Kobold Race.

    Bad, they should have another +2 stat since they are losing 4 str. Like +2 wisdom.

    Oh and just to finish off:
    Ugh, another request for Kobold race, really, really?

    Plenty of races already give a wis bonus.
    Make it +2 int instead, since it seems that nearly every kobold spellcaster you encounter is throwing arcane spells, not divine! This would give a good alternative race for a wiz / arti / rogue to get a small int boost other than going drow.

    /signed....if:

    It's a p2p/store feature for pvp (ie: DDO's own version of LotRO PvM). In which case I also strongly want Beholders.

    That is all.

    I would buy one for myself, my mom, my wife, my professors... oh yes they are.

    It doesn't matter if the Kobold is -10 in every stat, people would still buy and play them just for the sheer fun of it, especially with abilities like...

    Annoying Hard to Reach
    - A Kobold has the uncanny ability to jump to ledges that seem not even to exist, making them nearly impossible to hit by melee weapons. This ability has a 10 second cool down.

    or even...

    Ring the Gong
    - A Kobolt has friends hiding everywhere. Using this ability will summon 10 Kobolds seemingly out of thin air to come and fight with you. This ability can be used once per dungeon.

    This is actually a good ability, Paragons are even hard to hit by players with semi-decent gear let alone ten scaled.
