YO FOLKS time moves differently in the plane of blood, it seems. It's like blood Narnia.

We should dodge roll into the arena and make a huge dramatic return in front of the populace, proclaim ourselves as some kind of incredible resurrected demigod figure returned from death via the power of the gods, and then denounce the corrupt, unworthy king in favor of the chosen resistence. Be sure to use our incredible gift at speech giving!

They'll probably shit themselves in wonder that we can even speak english. Provide this as proof of our divine patronage.

So fun fact.
In DF, when a person becomes a necromancer, they automatically gain a personality shift that increases their ANXIETY_PROPENSITY and decreases their TRUST.  Presumably, this makes them better at pulling off villainous subterfuge and taking over positions of power.
All kobolds naturally have high ANXIETY_PROPENSITY and low TRUST.  (Also high ACTIVITY_LEVEL and GREED.)
This means that, logically, kobolds SHOULD be the ultimate villains and should easily rise to positions of power, and the only thing that stops them from doing so is their inability to speak.
Actually according to my experiments with talking kobolds this does not happen, and I have been unable to figure out what effects, if any, these personality traits have on the behavior of necromancers in worldgen.  But it sounds like it should be true, so let's pretend it is.
Let's gain the King's trust, demonstrating our powers to him but also swearing loyalty, thereby becoming his right-hand man dwarf kobold. That will put us in the perfect position to manipulate him toward our own ends, and seems easier than convincing the entire dwarven civilization to accept a kobold as their ruler.

-1 to all of this except for taking Tributescar. I kind of don't want the cute kobold that taught Matthias about friendship to so suddenly become an evil king.

You can be "evil" and still promote friendship.
Friendship at all costs, even if they don't like it.

On the other hand, you don't need to have evil intentions to be able to conquer the world. You could do so for the greater good.

Not all kings are evil, if we have conquered the world, we can voluntarily divide all resources among everyone, us being included in the dividing, thus true communism is reached when everyone owns everything

If we become king, we can stop these gladiator fights from happening, thus stopping the unnecessary deaths

Should we become king, we could have Clara be our main advisor.
And Matthias could be the kingdom's head law enforcer. Or perhaps military advisor/general? Maybe even judge, jury & executioner.
That should probably satisfy his blood lust in the long run. What could possibly go wrong?.
