** On the other hand, first-level NetHack mages with no mana have no problem taking out GridBug?s or even the occasional KoboldCreature or goblin.
Cobalt's metal, hard and shining COBOL's wordy and confining Kobolds topple when you strike them Don't feel bad, it's hard to like them. -- from The RogueletsAbc
Does ProfessorEvans know about this?
I like Kobolts.
Their defining trait, however, seems to be that they are extremely weak, and thus:
99 kobolds with spears in the hall 99 kobolds with spears Take one down, whack it around 98 kobolds with spears in the hall. . . .
Maybe so. But they're none too kind to 1st-level AngBand mages who've run out of mana, either.
Admitedly this is true.
