The Realm of the Ancients Half-Troll Race



An intermingling (carried out in the darker lands of the Realm) of the blood of the Troll with that of Humans, the Half-troll is as deadly as it is hideous. Though considerably smaller than full-blood Trolls, the Half-troll often stands well over eight feet in height and carries over three hundred pounds on its heavily-muscled frame. Owing in part to the black blood which courses through their heavy veins, the heavily-scaled skin of the Half-troll ranges in color from a charcoal grey to a deep, blackish green. Half-trolls revel in the fright of their appearance, often wearing their hair in battle-braids and emblazoning themselves with brands and tattoos to accentuate the effect. Though naturally of low wisdom, the race was sorcerously imbued with a wicked intelligence and the ability to see naturally in the darkness. Half-trolls usually make poor pure magic users, and suffer from an unusually low dexterity. Yet their boundless energy and high intellect create one of the most cunning physical beasts of the Realm in experienced hands. Half-trolls are immune to some poisons.
