Chief of the Sootscale Kobolds
Chief Sootscale was the chief of the Sootscale Kobolds, a relatively small band of kobolds in the Greenbelt. A few months ago though a new, purple skinned kobold by the name of Tartuk came to the Sootscales and soon took over the tribe. Tartuk claimed that the god Old Sharptooth (as depicted by an ivory statuette of a demon like figure, was angry at the Sootscales and that he was demanding sacrifices to his name. As Tartuk gained power, he fanned the flames of rivalry between the Sootscales and a band of mites inhabiting a tree a few miles away. Under Tartuk’s direction, the rivalry has grown increasingly violent and turned into an all out war, recently culminating in the mites stealing the statute of Old Sharptooth from the kobolds.
When the party returned to the Sootscale Caverns, Chief Sootscale lead them to Tartuk’s quarters where Joseph smashed the statue of Old Sharptooth to the ground. This lead to Tartuk attacking the party and Tartuk’s eventual death. Following the battle, Chief Sootscale thanked the party and offered to ally with them. He even allowed the party to take some of the treasure that the kobolds had accumulated over the years as a sign of good faith.
