As players venture deeper into the underground of Shroud of the Avatar, they’re going to run into kobolds. That’s just the reality of things. But the kobolds of the game aren’t simply bags of experience to be popped – they have their own style, their own technology, and their own way of building dwellings. The most recent developer dispatch covers the style of kobolds and the look of the race’s settlements.

Kobolds utilize a variety of technology to keep their underground living spaces functional, with hydroponics to grow various fungi underground and mine cart tracks to ship supplies hither and yon. There’s plenty of community news contained within the update as well, but if you just want a slice of the world’s style, you could do worse than getting a good look at how the kobolds lead their lives. Although you might want to turn up your monitor’s gamma a bit first (kobolds do not prioritize lighting, it seems).
