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meld with other races, but tend to stay away from humans, as their rites and customs are seen as primitive and outdated(and are often seen as inferior because of it).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.
Mostly living in cities built on mountainsides, the Mountain Trolls
are expert climbers. Rarely afraid of heights, they are often seen walking on precarious cliffs or seemingly unsafe bridges. While
they are not overly aggressive, the Mountain Trolls are known to be
able to defend themselves fiercely, having on their side a very high physical resilience.
Mountain Trolls are just as spiritual as their other Troll counterparts, giving a large part of their time towards their rituals for the Elemental Spirits. Scarification and body painting are common amongst their ranks, especially during rituals.
While they are not overly aggressive, the Mountain Trolls are known to
be able to defend themselves fiercely, having on their side a very high physical resilience. They are also very stable and strong on their feet, and can hardly be moved if they do not want to be.
