These Kobolds live in the Pronsh hills, about thirty miles north of Alem. They have lived there for almost a hundred years and were often persecuted by the other nearby inhabitants. Then a wizard built a tower on the opposite hillside. He was kind to the kobolds and proteced them. He, along with most of his tower disappeared. This is when the kobolds elevated him to near godhood. He is known aas the protector and is worshipped similar to a god. They await his return.
The kobolds are still protected despite the long ago disappearence of the wizard. The halflings in the nearby townships sometimes complain but to no avail. For their part, the kobolds are smart enough to know that they should refrain from raiding any of the merchant caravans that pass nearby.
