Kobold Shaman are a sort of Cleric added to groups of Kobold creatures found in various area in the game, and occasionally as part of random encounters.

Two Kobold Shaman appear together with other Kobold and Kobold Witch Doctor creatures in the Crystal Cavern within the Spellhold Bodhi's Hunt Level 2 exploration. These two shamans have dialogue text displays.


If a party member is observed by the kobold group by being in visual range, the Kobold Shaman will begin spell casting to target the nearest enemy. This is typically an Entangle Spell or a Hold Person.

If the shaman is wounded, it will attempt to cast Cure Light Wounds (spell) on self.

The shaman can try and hit an enemy with its carried mace in melee combat. It probably won't hit anything due to poor THAC0 before being defeated.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod adds a new spell casting script for the PPALTK01 and PPALTK02 Kobold Shamans. They can cast Cure Light Wounds (spell), Chant, Draw Upon Holy Might (spell) and Cure Serious Wounds. They are scripted to buff and heal their kobold allies.
