>Trolls are large hairy humanoid type beasts.  They have very long arms

>span is very long, with females living the longest.  It is not unheard of
>troll live as 300 years old, but many die in violent and bloody combat long

>Very litle is know about trolls history, mainly because they don't know the

>Some of these early trolls started to move south to the slightly warmer

>Trolls history is filled with bloody clan wars. The biggest war, which is

>Trolls in the world then there will be bloody battles.
>Troll gods are very brutal and most of them require blood to be satisfied,
>according to the preachings of the Troll shamans. There are always as many
>gods as clans, every clan having its own god. Nowadays there are three
>Troll clans in the world. The biggest, Bruknahk which has over 500 trolls
>and 7 tribes in it, worships Brah-taar, trollish god of war. The second
>biggest clan is Rekdiktaah which has about 300 trolls in it, and they
>worship Graah the god of death. Third clan is karaak, with 200 trolls to
>their name. They worship Barak the god of night.
>All Trolls are very fanatic worshippers; they do whatever their god tells
>them to do.  Because the shaman is the "Voice of the god" he holds much
>power and influence within the clan. Shaman is the only position which
>can hold in a Troll society.  Evey 50 years the old shaman chooses an
>apprentice and teaches him for ten full years. After that the old shaman is
>sacrificed to his god. This ritual is set out so that the members of his
>tribe eat the old shaman.  Each god is very bloodthirsty and requires
>vicious battles and bloodshed, so when the shaman commands it, the troll
>hunters to go down from mountains and hunt for members of other races.
>Troll society is matriarchal, because the females are much stonger than
>males. The only high position which males can hold is shaman of his clan,
>they cannot be war leaders or chieftains.  Trolls live in tribes, high up
>the mountains.  They sleep in caves, but at nights the Troll females leave
>to get food for her children; the males only get the children's leftovers.
>Usually many tribes which worship the same god live near each other and
>a clan. Clans have their leader which is selected in a ritual bloodbath
>every ten years. Three female Trolls from each tribe can participate in
>bloodbath and the new leader is the last Troll left standing.
>Leader and shaman decide all clan related questions together. Leader
>commands the armies of the clan in wartimes, which is often.
>Quick role-playing tips:
>Trolls should be played as very aggressive and bloodthirsty race. They
>take insults from anyone. If someone insults their god they attack
>immediately. Trolls don't have any kind of morals, which some so called
>"good" races may have, so it's very hard to say beforehand what a Troll
>do next. You should play trolls as a very brutal, powerful and bad-tempered
