On the northeastern edge of the Cathru Jungle lies a kingdom built over an intricate maze of mines delving deep underground. These mines were once overseen by the mightiest of dragons, and the current people dwelling there were once servants of those same dragons. The kobolds of Idicea have struggled with their feelings of servitude for millenia, and are now making their presence known in Caerlorn. Led by their sorcerer-kings and empowered by the blood of dragons, the kobolds have tested themselves and found that they are strong. “The dragon scale toughens our skin. The dragon bone adorns our skull. The dragon heart flames our sorcery. We are the dragon, and for the dragon we live. Long live the dragon.”
The kingdom of Idicea is very new nation, having only been formed in the year 1856. The timid kobolds of the mines below Idicea had hidden from the rest of the world for so many centuries until the first sorcerer-king, Cirixar I, inspired the hearts of his people to take their place as a power in Caerlorn by stating the phrase listed above. Since then, kobolds have made their presence more readily known, and it is common to see them outside their homeland, though they are still skittish and timid when dealing with larger races (effectively everyone else).
Recent history, as formed through the Godswar, has further granted courage to the kobolds. Through the influence of their allies, the kobolds of Idicea have begun to test their strength against their neighbors, both in war and in politics. No one knows what to expect from the small dragonkin, but they expect great things.
