Troll: The Monsters That Walk Among Us

  • Racial Homeland: Innothule Swamp
  • Mythical Creator: Cazic-Thule
  • Traditional Role: Fighter

Trolls have legendary and daunting strength and stamina, which make them good fighters of any type.

Trolls have a hideous appearance that not even another troll could find appealing: faces sunken and long, extended noses and pointed ears. Nearly as tall as ogres, they are well known for strength and savagery. Internal strife in troll societies is hinted at by the number of scars on their skin. Their apparel is usually filthy, since trolls do little in the way of practicing hygiene. Spilled blood often covers armor and clothing. They craft their own armor, desiring spikes and other painful adornments that can serve great pain.

The trolls were the first race placed on Norrath by Cazic-Thule. They are nearly as tall as ogres but less bulky, with rough greenish skin and sinister features. Trolls will eat anything, cooked or uncooked, as long as it was (or still is) alive at some point. Trolls care only for satisfying their personal desires, which mostly revolved around a hunger for food and a lust for battle. While they are reviled by most other races, they would be even more dangerous if their intelligence wasn't so limited. Even so, their inherent savagery and selfishness combined with formidable strength make them deadly opponents. Built into the muck and mire of Innothule Swamp, the troll city of Grobb was a primitive, messy hovel. It was eventually conquered by their ancient rivals, the frogloks, who transformed the city into Gukta. The trolls sought refuge with their dark elf allies, falling even more under the control of the Teir'Dal.

Despite their limitations, trolls are not to be underestimated. A particularly savage clan made their home in Broken Skull Rock, filling their hearts with the doctrines of Hate. With Innoruuk as their new master, they stole an ancient artifact from Grobb, a stone etched with the prophecy of the Grozmok. Trolls continue to await the coming of the Grozmok, a mythical figure that will unite the tribes under the combined might of Fear and Hate.

Trolls traditionally practice a shamanistic form of worship dedicated to their creator, Cazic-Thule. Due to the influence of the Brokenskull Clan, a more orderly form of worship, centered on the teachings of Innoruuk, has also risen to prominence with the wisest of trolls forming a cleric caste. Though able to achieve a greater level of mental focus than most of their kin, these Priests retain all the savagery and aggressiveness common to the rest of their race.
