Author's Note: Kobolds to Mastiffs = Due to a comment from one of my best friends who noticed; i shall be changing the name of Kobolds to temporarily Mastiff - until i can find a perfect name for the race. Kobolds apparently somewhat was known to mean half pig people i was like WTF?! It was my friend Boey long ago, hmm uh 5 years ago or was it 6 - somewhere there, who thought of naming the race Kobolds. Usually he's good at that mythology stuff or origin stuff that's where i get most of my names. Myths, origins, or you know word manipulation - like Luminars was a word manipulation. Anyways so yea just wanted to point that change out to you and the reason why for the change.
