Krunk One-Ear, Kobold DragonshieldKrunk One-Ear first ran into the party in the short rest between Encounter 1 and Encounter 2.
Krunk was originally standing guard in the library beyond the cave. Minnock, captured and willing to work for the party, convinced the kobold to abandon his post, bringing him unwittingly before the party. At first, he reacted with surprise and anger, before Minnock quicky quieted him. Once told of the party's power, their killing of Kethendtir, and their willingness to spare the kobolds and kill their remaining captors, Krunk begrudgingly aquiesed to the idea. He stated that this was all on the condition their leader, Nibbik, agreed in the end.
Krunk (as well as Minnock), entered the library with the party in Encounter 2. the two of the successfully kept the other kobolds from entering the battle, allowing the party to dispatch Gravash quickly without any kobold casualties. Krunk knocked out one kobold attempting to throw a rock at the party, displaying his commitment to the idea of protecting his clan through enforcing their pacifism.
Krunk followed the party through the portal in the library into Encounter 3, stating the rest should stay behind for their protection. He successfully convinced Nibbik and his kobold allies to refrain from attacking the party members.
