The Ironwood Kobolds lived beneath a stone out cropping, deep within the woods of Tier Ingal. For a decade or two pre-Ruination they would prey upon travelers on the Great Road passing through their territory. This tribe were devotees to She Who Can't Be Named and offered up many of their goods taken from those they preyed upon on the road.
Around 3 BR they began getting more and more brazen, taking out entire wagons and eventually caravans, by felling the ancient trees and blocking the way. Until 1 BR when this tribe was all but wiped out by a band of caravan guards. What kobolds remaining began following the teachings of Reardon and unofficially joined the ranks of The Watchdogs. This was after one of the caravan guards marked a survivor with a divine mark, exclaiming that Reardon would now be watching them, and would smite them down should they err again.
