Towering brutes with slavering jaws and razor-sharp claws, trolls are voracious predators. They are nigh invulnerable and single-minded in their pursuit, so they throw themselves against prey with reckless abandon. Wounds that would cripple or kill most other creatures regenerate into healthy troll flesh within seconds.

Trolls don’t mark their hunting grounds with claw marks or urine as beasts do. After gorging upon their kill, they suspend any meat, bones, or other bodily detritus that remain from tree branches to mark their domains. Unfortunately, trolls tend to treat these borders as approximations. Before a hapless traveler even spots such a grisly marker and realizes that they have wandered into troll territory, the trolls are already preparing to attack.

These pages present lesser-known varieties beyond the common troll.
