    Cool D&D character idea: an unarmed, unarmored, Kobold wizard named Jimmy the Dismemberer, who has an intelligence score so low that he cannot cast spells.

    The most fun I ever had as a DM with kobolds (not as PCs) was to make them wights. The party sees a group of kobolds and thinks they're just regular kobolds and wades right into the fight. Surprise! These kobolds had been turned into wights. And this was in older editions of D&D, where they drained levels from their foes.

    Jimmy is better. He's a wizard who can't cast spells, who is a kobold (the weakest species), and does not wear armor. Deceptively powerful, due to his immense luck.

    Cool ideas, but maybe if he was so unintelligent he can't cast spells, shouldn't he be a fighter or a ranger instead?

    NEVER! He's supposed to be useless, silly! He can't learn FIGHTING SKILLS.

    But what if he just grabbed an axe and hit any enemies with it? He could still kill them then, and he wouldn't need to learn anything.

    That defeats the point of the whole character. He's supposed to dismember people, but have such incredibly low health and damage output that he's useless. I guess you don't understand kobold humor.

    He's useless because it is funny.

    As mentioned in another thread. I once ran a Kobold fighter named Gn'vek. He wore mummy wrapping for clothes and a jester's cap without the bells to freak people out and he never bathed unless he was forced to swim or "accidentally" knocked into a lake/stream. He rode a midget cow named TAST (A sounds like O). As we faced off against an ogre-led group of orcs menacing the countryside, his cow got tossed (yes... Tast got tossed) and Gn'vek was so angry he went after the Ogre and killed it almost single-handedly (there were a couple ranged attacks against it from other party members)

    It would have been even funnier if he wasn't a fighter, but had to fight like one because he wasn't smart enough to use magic or stealth.

    Jimmy also shouts "ABRACADABRA!" whenever he punches people, because he thinks he casting spells with "punch magic"
