The kobold shepherd is very similar to its kobold brethren. Smaller than a dwarf and even many halflings, it has ruddy skin and a hairless pate topped with small horns. The kobold shepherd does, however, have better habits of cleanliness and a better sense of responsibility. It spends long hours herding the roltons that provide sustenance for it and its family. When its herds are threatened, the kobold shepherd fights valiantly in their defense.
The pasture can spawn a decent number of creatures with only one hunter in the area. One should be wary not to become overwhelmed. Often times while hunting in the pasture, Hobgobins and Spotted Lynx will come into the pasture from Ocama Vale. Their attacks are much harder than the usual creatures in the pasture and caution should be taken accordingly.

Several crazy-eyed roltons suddenly stampede in and begin devouring the body of a kobold shepherd. After a few moments, they emerge from their feeding frenzy, turn around, and scamper away, leaving not a shred of the shepherd behind.
