The Mur-zhagul (or demon trolls) are planetouched creatures descended from the cross-breeding of trolls and demons.
Mur-zhagul appear as normal trolls in posture and shape. Their skin however is red-orange and covered in fine scales.
These monsters combine the savageness of normal trolls with the cunning of demons to a deadly end for many would-be adventurers. While they have enough intelligence to wear armor and carry weapons, most forego the weapons and use their claws to rip opponents to bloody shreds.
