Northern Forest Trolls[edit]

A savage race from the cold forests of the north.


Northern forest trolls are a savage species. But surprisingly they are very long-tempered and think before doing anything. Unlike many savage species they like philosophy. They love feasting, drinking, singing, music, running, acrobatics and wild dancing. When they're feasting they play fast music with drums, flutes, horns and an instrument of their own (kind of like a mixture of a sackpipe and an accordion), sing, eat mushrooms, drink and dance really wild acrobatic dances. They love fighting too and drink their slain opponent's blood as a sign of victory.

Physical Description[edit]

Northern forest trolls stand between 6 and 7 feet tall and usually weigh from 100 to 200 pounds. Female are usually a little smaller. Their skin shades range from dark gray to light gray. Most of them have brown eyes but some have green. Their hair is black, brown or gray. They have long and strong limbs, which makes them excellent runners. The northern forest trolls look a little more like humans than the ordinary trolls look.


These trolls usually live silently in the cold forests of the north and don't much care of the other races.


Usually non-good.


The northern forest trolls live in cold northern forests.


Northern forest trolls despise good aligned deities. Most of them don't care about religion but some worship deities like Erythnul and Olidammara.


The northern forest trolls have their own language but they don't want to share it with others. In fact they have never taught it to any non-northern forest troll.

Automatic languages: Common and Giant. Bonus languages: Goblin, Orc, Dwarven, Gnoll, Gnome, Sylvan and Undercommon.


Northern forest trolls are normally given only one name when born and sometimes a second one after they've grown up.
