Trolls are massive, predatory species of giant-kin, they are considered "stupid bastards" by other species of giants except for ogres, who are treated the same way. The most distinctive feature of trolls is their ability to regenerate. If any part of a troll's body is cut off, it will grow back after a while and the felled limb has a chance to evolve into an entirely new troll. The only things that can stop this are fire and acid, both of which trolls fear greatly.

EcologyEdit

Trolls are most often found in cold, mountainous regions, but can be encountered nearly anywhere.

DescriptionEdit

The average troll stands 9 ft (2.7 m) high and weighs roughly 500 lbs (227 kg), though females tend to be a bit larger than males. The hide of trolls is rubbery, and usually either moss green, putrid gray, or mottled gray and green. Their coarse hair is typically iron gray, or greenish-black. Trolls initially seem to be somewhat shorter, due to their sagging shoulders and tendency to hunch forward. They walk with an uneven gait, and their arms dangle and drag the ground when running. Despite this apparent awkwardness, trolls are quite agile.

SocietyEdit

Trolls speak Giant or "trollspeak" (a mix of Common, Orcish, Goblin, and Giant). They usually worship Vaprak the Destroyer. Troll dens are filthy places; ruled by a matriarch called a trollop, who is often a shaman in possession of some magical power. These females have a greater appetite for sentient flesh.
