Oh, and what do you guys think about rolling randomly to determine the scale colour of the kobolds in our clan? There's a table for this in Volo's:

d100    Scale Colour
01-05Black
06-10Blue
11-25Brown
26-30Gray
31-35Green
36-40Orange
41-55Ornage-brown
56-60Red
61-75Red-brown
76-85Tan
86-90White
90-100Patterned*

* Patterend: roll two colours and a pattern type:

d20      Scale Pattern
1-4Mottled
5-8Reticulated
9-12Shaded
13-16Spotted
17-20Striped

If we're all partial to a specific colour/pattern of course we could just choose that. I'm not at all picky, though, so interested to hear what you guys think.

For scale colour(s), what about striped green and tan (or red). Sorta like the gremlins from the Gremlins movies? As we will placing traps for the nasty adventurers to stumble into, and I would seriously laugh, if the game turns out like even half of the original Gremlins movie.

Grease down a ramp, while we go through a secret passage, anyone?

Best I can do is Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

Fair enough.

Apparently, Gremlins 3 has had it's script written, and is closer in tone to the original. I hope it's out in the next couple of years, as that would be killer.

Could be neat.
I'm actually a fan of how crazy G2 is. It's like they gave the director comple control and he vowed to make sure the studio regretted it. Which should be a genre of film.

So how do you want to choose your clan color? Vote or roll between Red and Green/Black stripe?

I think in the spirit of D&D I think it should be decided by the dice.

So I spent some time tonight making a rough draft of example traps. Most are from Xanthars, but I intend to add more options. I plan to categorize traps and tie them to a base building system I am working on, so an advanced trap will need a Blacksmith, Alchemist, or Mason of the required level to be built.

Please look it over, tell me if I made some mistakes, and suggest new traps!

Something I have been meaning to ask and this came to mind because my character has a herbalism kit. I was wondering if we would be able to aquire or make poisons and also possibly apply them to certain traps, sleep poisons or just deadly poisons though sleep ones would be cool.
Also question on the topic of the traps, how does one go about gaining level in alchemist or blacksmith?

I will allow a lot of latitude in customizing traps, so no reason you cant gather poisons and special effect poisons.

The alchemist and blacksmith will be a level that increases as you survive incursions.
