Trolls share the same DNA as the mighty Orcs, although they evolved in very different directions. While the Orcs value honor, strength and war, Trolls are more peaceful and very spiritual. They value harmony with nature, honesty and integrity. Mostly scattered in the far north and south, Trolls sometimes meld with other races, but tend to stay away from humans, as their rites and customs are seen as primitive and outdated(and are often seen as inferior because of it). They still integrated technology to their daily lives, but the appearance of their cities, clothes and weapons have strong ties to their ancestry.
Trolls are very close to the elemental spirits. Their tribes and cities are often lead by a chieftain and a shaman, helped by a tribal council, that insures all young Trolls succeed their rite of passage to adulthood, and take care of political and economical matter. Those rites include long meditation to connect with the spirit world, and scarification (representing scales and intricate patterns) to bring themselves closer to the Dragon Spirits.
Ice Trolls live in lands permanently coated
in snow. They rarely see the sun shine,
thus having a very pale complexion. Due
to this, they often do very poorly in other climates,
often suffering from terrible sunburns when exposed
to scorching sun. They are capable warriors and
hunters, often proving their worth by hunting the
large beasts of the north. They are the closest ties
to their Orcs ancestors, with more primal appearances
Their main economy comes from the pelts and bones of
exotic northern beasts, as well as their weapon and armor
smiting abilities. They are often at war with the Skarvalds and
Ice Dwarves, as they share territories and resources.
