The Slayer's Guide to Kobolds
Individually, kobolds are physically very weak, with even a first level wizard having a reasonable chance of defeating one in close combat. Because of this, they are an ideal race for Game Masters to employ against low level parties, challenging his players without slaughtering their characters, even if relatively large numbers of kobolds bring their weight to bear."
"As has been pointed out in previous Slayer's Guides, no race in any campaign world exists solely to provide cannon fodder for allegedly heroic adventurers. The purpose of this supplement is to redress this imbalance somewhat by giving Game Masters the informations they need to make kobolds a solid and coherent part of their campaign. No longer will players merely scoff and draw their swords when they meet a group of kobolds within some ancient ruin. Finally, kobolds will have the respect they always deserved."
