Buckshank bold and Elfinstone,
And more than I can mention here,
They caused to be built so stout a ship,
And unto Iceland they would steer.

They launched the ship upon the main,
Which bellowed like a wrathful bear;
Down to the bottom the vessel sank,
A laidly Trold has dragged it there.”
-George Borrow, _Lavengro: The Scholar, the Gypsy, the Priest_. 1851.

Trolls are huge, lumbering humanoids found throughout the Dungeon, tearing apart adventurers with their savage claws. Although there are several varieties with unique features, they all boast powerful melee prowess and frustratingly rapid regeneration. Killing them may produce troll leather armour of varying shades, though all colours work identically.

Troll Types

  • T Troll.png Troll - A brute with long claws, slavering fangs, and unnatural regeneration.
  • T Deep troll.png Deep troll - Cave-dwellers that hunt in packs and are often led by their more magically-inclined brethren.
  • T Deep troll earth mage.png Deep troll earth mage - These geomancers use magic to carve tunnels through the Dungeon and their claws to carve through you.

  • T Iron troll.png Iron troll - The largest, slowest, most powerful member of the troll family. Resists fire and cold.
