    Default Why Not?

    Gotta justify the reason for creating a union somehow...collecting shards is as good a reason as any.

    The same reason that chickens cross a road.
    Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?

    Squirrels store nuts and kobolds are nuts about crystals, duh! Which means that kobolds are squirrels or weigh as much as a duck or something!

    They mine crystals in a futile attempt to try to forget Waterworks.

    It all comes back to Lolth (or is it Lloth?), doesn't it? Clearly, kobolds mining crystals is just another tendril in the Spider Queen's plot to take over the world, or whatever it is evil spider ladies do. It's arachnids all the way down!

    Why do the kobolds mine for crystals in Crystal Cove?

    So glad you ask! You see, kobolds mine for crystals for most important reason! Kobolds have deep and meaningful culture having to do with shinies. At least that what shaman say!

    You see, we take crystals back to home nest. Kobolds carefully lay crystals we steal...err, find...around the eggs the den mother lays. Every little kobold sees the sparkles and shinies even before they leave the egg!

    The home nest is so sparkly and pretty! When the little kobold babes are big enough and strong enough, they break through their shells to get to the sparkles.

    Trust me! Most cutest kobolds you ever see are little kobold babies. Shinies is their first word.

    So you see, kobolds mine for shinies because they remind us of of our kobold babes. Is nothing more precious than the little ones.

    Oh, and plus, den mother say that we no mine, then we not eat. Kobold like full bellies, too. That pretty important reason.

    While kobolds have a love of shiny things, none but the bravest dare keep the dragonshards they extract. A mind flayer requires green dragonshard residuum for undisclosed purposes and has "recruited" hordes of kobolds in order to get it. Since these shards are often used to make powerful items perhaps this illithid is doing something similar?

    Interestingly mining operations happen periodically rather than persistently, however the reason for this is unclear. Perhaps the dragonshards are used to fuel an arcane or psionic contraption and more fuel is sought when supplies run low? Maybe vast amounts are used in special rituals at specific times?

    Everybody knows that kobolds are related to dragons.
    They make dragonshard fragments out of the crystals they mine.

    They are looking for the Foreman's car keys. He's sure he left them down there somewhere.

    They're just trying to do the best they can, without getting any further infractions.

    Because they are programmed that way.

    Because it's the only job around for which they 1) get paid and 2) are protected by us.

    They tried to stay on their own in Waterworks and we trashed them.
    They were enslaved by Shan To Kor hobgoblins and various other tribes of giants and other goblinoids all around Xendrik and each and every time we showed up and trashed them.
    Heck, they even sided with two powerful black dragons and holed up in an active volcano just to have us stomp the dragons and raid the volcano with impunity.

    At least during Crystal Cove mining they are paid (and so if something happens to the miners their families still get to eat for a few days) and we have to defend them so their death rate is at an all time low.

    That's the reason ... and shinies!

    Kobolds mine for dragonshards because they are often found with a slight growth of phosphorescent (and psychoactive) moss upon them. Kobold drugs is big bizness.

    We, kobolds, take crystals to fill those enormous barrels we carry... but can not remember why carry those enormous barrels.
