Design Note: The concept of this race race is to be playful with the different definitions of the word "troll".[1]

Despite all of the growing concerns, these guys, at least vary in color, shape and size through out their life. It is said no two trollings ever end up the same. So it seems to be true. They are born super tiny, and thus escape from the evil trolls at a really young age, some how for a few days its like an adult survival skill sets in as they rush away and into some cover to hide and eat and grow and grow some more. Eating bugs and mushrooms and such at first, barely higher than a blade of grass they grow quickly, and suffer the pains of it. This is where trollings develop their singing, to keep their mind off the pain. They continue to grow throughout their life, as the story tellers allow.

Troll Features[edit]

Troll Singing

At the start of your turn you can begin singing heartily. You must concentrate on your singing as though you were concentrating on a spell. While you are singing, you and friendly creatures within 30 feet of you have advantage on Constitution saves and Constitution checks. You can sing for 1 minute, then you must finish a long rest before you can sing again.

Troll Fishing

You can spend 10 minutes fashioning a troll fishing line from any materials on hand. The line is 60 feet long and can be trailed along land or water. If you see a tiny creature move onto the line, you can use your reaction to snare it. The creature and character engage in a dexterity contest. If the creature fails, it is snared. You can subsequently use your action to reel it in, pulling it 15 feet towards you; or you can move 15 feet further away, dragging it with you. On its turn, the creature can attempt to escape as though escaping from a grapple.

Trolling Taunt

You can incite the calmest of individuals to a state of rage. You can taunt a creature, causing a contest between your Charisma (Intimidation) check and the target's Wisdom (Insight) check. The target has disadvantage on their check if they are hostile or indifferent to you. If you win the contest, a hostile creature attacks you physically or verbally, and an indifferent creature becomes hostile.

Troll Sharing

When you spend a short rest sharing your drink with at least one other creature you can communicate with, at the end of the rest each participant gains temporary hit points equal to the number of participants (up to 10). This consumes one waterskin's worth of water or liquor.

Troll Rolling

On your turn you can spend any part of your movement rolling. While rolling, you are considered prone but can still move at your normal speed, and you can move through a hostile creature's space if you succeed in a constitution contest against that creature.

Troll Searching

Whenever you use the Intelligence (Investigation) skill to systematically search an area for a specific object, you are considered proficient in Investigation and add double your proficiency bonus to the check, instead of your normal proficiency bonus.
