    DESERT TROLL CHARACTERS
    Unless you go for the Despoiler PrC, your options are beatstick of some sort. Your Hit Dice and LA are too high for other stuff.
    Adventuring Race: Desert Trolls most commonly go on adventures for revenge, or because they follow prey only to find themselves in the midst of events beyond their control.
    Character Development: Initially your immunity to non-magical fire will prevent fire spells being used on you, but you'll want to develop methods to protect yourself from knowledgeable opponents.
    Character Names:

    ROLEPLAYING A DESERT TROLL
    Hunger is the ultimate motivation, and since you must endure the desert sun your hunger is worse than the average Troll.
    Personality: Desert Trolls have little in the way of personality, and few goals behind destroying water and satisfying their hunger.
    Behaviors: Desert Trolls are little more than ambush predators, but they do make a point of befouling desert oases in order to ensure they have less chance of being exposed to water.
    Language: Desert Trolls speak Giant, with a few of the more intelligent ones speaking Common as well.

    DESERT TROLL SOCIETY
    Like most Trolls, the Desert Troll is barely out of the stone age. Many of them don't even use tools.
    Alignment : Desert Trolls are almost universally Chaotic Evil. They are insane creatures dedicated to ending other forms of life.
    Lands : Desert Trolls live in lonely places in the desert, looking to waylay travelers.
    Settlements : Desert Trolls tend to keep to their own territory, lest others band together against them.
    Beliefs : Desert Trolls worship Vaprak.
    Relations: Other races are pretty much food unless they're too powerful for you to kill by yourself.

    DESERT TROLL ADVENTURES
    · A weird little faerie has been skipping merrily along through your territory creating pools of water. You need to have a word with him about that
    · A strange Giant ate Thag. You were going to eat Thag. This just pisses you right off.
    · A stranger claiming to be a God blundered into your ambush, and unfortunately, he seems uneatable. And you've tried. You've reeeeally, really tried.


    Desert Troll Racial Substitution Levels

    Ranger
    Levels 1, 6, 11: New options for Combat Mastery.
    Combat Mastery (Ex): Quicksand Style gains you the following Feats: Combat Expertise (1st), Improved Trip (6th), and Sand Snare (11th). Hurler gains you the following Feats: Power Attack (1st), Brutal Throw (6th), and Power Throw (11th).
    Level 4: Replace Animal Companion with one from Sandstorm list.
    Level 4: Replace Woodland Stride with Sandskimmer
    Sandskimmer: You gain Sandskimmer as a Bonus Feat.

    Scout
    Levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19: Replace Skirmish with Ambush
    Ambush (Ex): In any round in which the Scout makes an attack against an opponent who is Flat-Footed or unaware of his presence he does +1d6 damage. He also gets this bonus to ranged attacks performed on any round in which he does not move. This extra damage increases by 1d6 for every four levels gained above 1st (2d6 at 5th, 3d6 at 9th, 4d6 at 13th, and 5d6 at 17th level).

    The extra damage only applies against living creatures that have a discernible anatomy. Undead, constructs, oozes, plants, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are not vulnerable to this additional damage. The scout must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. Scouts can apply this extra damage to ranged attacks made while skirmishing, but only if the target is within 30 feet.

    Level 10: Replace Blindsense with Tremor Sense 15'.
    Level 20: Replace Blindsight with Tremor Sense 30'.

    DESPOILER



    "I assure you, the water may be black but it's perfectly drinkable."

    Despoilers ruin desert oases, and blight nature in general. Initially they begin wanting to get rid of water, but most end up going psycho and becoming anti-life.

    BECOMING A DESPOILER
    A sufficiently devoted Desert Troll will usually find a way.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Desert Troll
    Spellcasting: Must have 1 Level in any Divine spellcasting class.
    Skills: Knowledge (Nature) 4 ranks, Spellcraft 4 ranks
    Feats: Combat Casting, Improved Initiative


    Class Skills
    The Despoiler's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis)
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +2     +0     +0    Despoiler Magic
    2. +1    +3     +0     +0    Bonus Feat, +1 Caster Level of Divine Casting Class

    Holocaust(Sp): At 10th Level you may cast Despoil 1/Day as a Spell-Like Ability. Caster Level is equal to Hit Dice.

    PLAYING A DESPOILER
    Water is a significant weakness for you, and you intend to make sure as little as possible exists anywhere near you. Plus you kind of get your jollies by ruining nature.
    Combat: You aren't all that different from the average Troll as most of your powers aren't helpful in combat.
    Advancement: Despoilers are neither very bright or imaginative. Most of them advance along fairly predictable lines.
    Resources: Whatever you can scrounge up.

    DESPOILERS IN THE WORLD
    "Them Desert Trolls are bad news son. Kill 'em all says I."
    The world is mostly interested in killing you. Needless to say, you spend much of your time avoiding it.
    Daily Life: You pretty much spend your days like any other Troll, with the exception of wiping out oases.
    Notables:
    Organizations: There are some Evil beings who have use for your talents, but even most of them find you skeevy..

    NPC Reaction
    You're more hated than regular Trolls, if such a thing is possible.

    DESPOILERS IN THE GAME
    This is probably best for all Evil campaigns.
    Adaptation: This is probably modifiable for something less awful. Maybe.
    Encounters: Despoilers are generally found making the desert a worse place to live.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's pull up to the only oasis within miles to find a troll peeing in the water. The troll doesn't acknowledge them, which is generally a bad sign.

    Regeneration (Ex): Fire and acid deal normal damage to a troll. If a troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

    Skills: Snow Trolls gain a +4 Racial Bonus on Climb Checks.

    Combat: Snow Trolls cover the entrances to caves near passes with snow and wait for prey to come in range. Once they detect something they burst forth and begin attacking without fear of death.

    SNOW TROLL ADVENTURES
    · Someone has been Awakening the local Polar Bears, who are organizing against you. This is doubly a problem, since most of your food is, in fact, Polar Bear,
    · You overhear adventurers planning to destroy your entire species during the annual mating season. You must inform your fellows.
    · A representative of a White Dragon came by to inform you to obey him or die. You ate him in what is becoming a series of questionable life decisions.

    PLAYING A FROST WARRIOR
    There's always a need for someone to kill invaders. And unfortunately you make your living being that someone.
    Combat: You rely on Stealth to ambush opponents, particularly more dangerous ones like White Dragons..
    Advancement: Your training tends to be determined by whatever foes you face most commonly..
    Resources: Pretty much whatever you can steal or loot off the dead..

    FROST WARRIORS IN THE WORLD
    "Ferd is a worthless gober, but you can count on him when the Dragons rain down out of the sky."
    You don't interact with the world until it invades your territory..
    Daily Life: Until times of trouble you live like any other Snow Troll. When called on you take up arms as long as necessary.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Frost Warriors are a pretty loose organization. You're really only organized in times of need.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's treat you like any other monster.

    FROST WARRIORS IN THE GAME
    This assumes you are an on again off again militiaman defending your home territory. You'll want a good reason for leaving it to adventure.
    Adaptation: This is adaptable to other races given enough work..
    Encounters: Frost Warriors are only encountered during war, or if you stumble onto their home.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's are discussing how best to confront the local White Dragon, when a bunch of furry Trolls jump from nowhere and begin clubbing the hell out of it Maybe they should just back away slowly...

    Legacy Trolls are tall, spindly trolls with gills and wide mouths full of needle-like teeth. Many are deformed due to the Vermeil contaminating their environments.

    Rend (Ex): If a troll hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 2d6+9 points of damage.

    Limited Regeneration (Ex): Fire and acid deal normal damage to a troll. If a troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump. Legacy Trolls only Regenerate when at least one third of their body is immersed in water.

    Legacies: Legacy Trolls are horribly mutated by the Vermeil dust saturating their homes. The exact effect depends on which Location they are in. Region 1 trolls typically have Armor, Burn, Grow, or Senses. Region 2 can have Animal Form, Crimson Fire, Farsight, Meld, Sleep, or Spikes. Region 3 may have All-Around Vision, Ball of Fire, Separation, Shock, or Shrink. Region 4 has Acid Touch, Duplicate, Poison, Spell Shield, or Weaken. While deformed they take no penalties from the Red Curse and do not need Cinnabryl. Most Trolls have a single Legacy.

    Hold Breath (Ex): Normally Aquatic, Legacy Trolls can 'hold their breath' out of water for a number of rounds equal to ( 8 x it's Con Score) before risking suffocation.

    Combat: Legacy Trolls attack in a manner similar to regular Trolls, but they prefer to wait until opponents are in the water for obvious reasons.


    LEGACIES
    Legacies may be activated 3/day as a Full Round Action. They are Exceptional Abilities unless mentioned otherwise. A Legacy Troll may end the effects of a Legacy early voluntarily, but if damaged when activating one it must make a Concentration to activate it successfully much in the same manner as a Spellcaster casting a spell. Saving Throw DC's if any are 10 plus half Hit Dice plus Constitution Bonus. Caster Level is equal to Hit Dice if applicable.

    Acid Touch The troll drools a slightly acidic substance and it's bites does additional acid damage equal to the Troll's Hit Dice plus 1. This lasts for 1 Minute.

    All-Around Vision 4 eyes grow on the Trolls body lasting 1/round per Hit Die. He gains a +2 Bonus to Initiative and Spot Checks and cannot be Flanked.

    Animal Form The troll is permanently a fish from the waist down and loses it's land speed. It may change into any Animal the same Size Class as itself for 2 rounds/Hit Die. This is identical to the Alternate Form ability. Any equipment melds into the new form, and if the animal has a mouth the Troll can speak. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Armor The troll gains red scales for 1 round/Hit Die. It provides a +1 Natural AC Bonus per every 3 Hit Dice to a maximum increase of +5.

    Ball of Fire The trolls skin turns red briefly as it throws a ball of fire at an opponent doing 1d4 fire damage per every 3 Hit Dice to a maximum of 6d4. It is a Ranged attack with a Range Increment of 10 ft. If it hits anything combustible it automatically sets fire to it. This is a Spell-Like Ability.

    Burn The trolls skin turns red briefly as it unleashes fire as a touch attack doing 1d4 Fire damage, plus 1 point per Hit Die. At Level 5 and every 5 levels thereafter range increases +5' to a maximum of 10'. This is a Spell-Like Ability.

    Crimson Fire The trolls eyes glow bright red for 2 rounds/Hit Die. During this time it may cast Faerie Fire at will. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Duplicate The Troll grows an Illusory third arm for 2 rounds/level, and it is under the effect of a Mirror Image spell during this time. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Farsight The trolls eyes grow on stalks, and for 2 rounds/Hit Die it can alter the focus of it's vision to see clearly (even read) for up to 300' per Hit Die (to a maximum of 1 Mile).

    Grow One of the trolls limbs is twice it's normal size. For two rounds per Hit Die it's Size Category increases by 1 with all the attendant effects this brings (see Monster Manual). This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Meld Anytime the troll is at rest it's skin color slowly beings changing to that of it's surroundings. For 2 rounds per Hit Die, the Troll and up to 100 pounds of equipment can meld with any wood, earth, or stone object. This is otherwise identical to the Meld into Stone spell. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Poison The troll grows a stinging tail which does damage and has the same poison as a Monstrous Scorpion of the same Size Class for 1 round per Hit Die.

    Senses The trolls eyes, nose, tongue, ears and fingers become elongated or exaggerated. For 2 rounds per Hit Die it can increase it's senses. It gains Tremorsense 30', and can Take 20 on Search, Spot, and Listen Checks. Optionally it may instead use one of it's daily uses to remove any effect making it Blind or Deaf.

    Separation One of the trolls eyes is permanently detached painlessly, and will fall out occasionally if the Troll isn't careful. The Troll can see through this eye regardless of distance, and if it is destroyed the Troll gains a new eye in 1d6 days. The eye has hit points equal to the Trolls Hit Dice, and the Same Natural AC Bonus. It is Size Class Fine.

    Shock The troll is constantly charged with static electricity. The Troll may use Shocking Grasp whenever it activates this Legacy. This is a Spell-Like Ability.

    Shrink
    The Troll has a pinhead. For 2 rounds per Level it can cause a single other being it can see to decrease in Size Class one step if it is Large or Smaller with all the attendant effects this brings (see Monster Manual) if it fails a Willpower Save. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Sleep The troll always appears tired. It may cast Sleep on one creature with a duration of 2 rounds per Hit Die. There is no Hit Die limit on what creatures it can effect, but it must maintain Concentration to keep the victim asleep. This is a Spell-Like Ability.

    Spell Shield A glowing red disk orbits the Troll for 2 rounds per Hit Die. The Troll gains a +1 Bonus on Saving Throws per every three Hit Dice up to a maximum of +7. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    Spikes The Troll becomes covered in fleshy spikes for 2 rounds per Hit Die. Opponents attacking the Troll with Unarmed Strikes, Natural Weapons, or Grapples take 1d6 piercing damage plus their own Str Modifier. The Troll also gains a Bonus to Grapple Checks equal to it's Hit Dice, and does 1d6 +Str piercing damage with a successful Grapple Check.

    Weaken The troll appears horribly emaciated. For 1 round per Level the Troll gains a Melee Touch attack doing 1d6 Strength Damage unless it's opponent makes a Willpower Save. This is a Supernatural Ability.

    LEGACY TROLL CHARACTERS

    Adventuring Race: Legacy Trolls go on adventures.
    Character Development: Try to boost your Legacy in some way that mixes well with your chosen Class.
    Character Names:

    ROLEPLAYING A LEGACY TROLL
    Unlike normal Trolls, you have a compulsion for something other than food: Cinnabryl. While they don't need Cinnabryl to alleviate the usual problems of the Red Curse, they do use it to negate their Legacy related deformities.
    Personality: Other than a few layers of psychosis, you're pretty much the same as any troll.
    Behaviors: Given the polluted nature of your home environment, you tend to be less mentally stable than most Trolls, and are prone to odd behavior.
    Language: Legacy Trolls speak Giant.

    LEGACY TROLL SOCIETY
    Legacy Trolls are primitive stone age tribes rarely living in large groups..
    Alignment : Given the toxic pollution driving them mad, many Trolls are Chaotic Evil.
    Lands : Legacy Trolls live along the coasts, rivers and lakes of The Savage Coast.
    Settlements : A number of Trolls also live in the Bayou.
    Beliefs : When Trolls do worship a God, it's usually Hel or Loki..
    Relations: Other races are for robbing or eating.

    LEGACY TROLL ADVENTURES
    · The swamps are suddenly being invaded by Vermilion Puddings. The clan's Shaman has volunteered you to find out the source of this.
    · A Nosferatu has taken hold of a trade town that you used to raid, and now you find yourself in the odd position of trying to save the people you used to bully. So you can bully them again.
    · The Gurrash have decided to acquire your territory. Fight time!

    will have Epic Legacies done soon

    LEGACY SHAMAN



    “When life places stones in your path, be the water. A persistent drop of water will wear away even the hardest stone.”

    Legacy Shamans are the spellcasters and wise people of their species. Wise compared to some Trolls anyway.

    BECOMING A LEGACY SHAMAN
    The rare spellcasting Legacy Troll usually follows this path..

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Legacy Troll
    Spellcasting: Must be able to cast a spell with the Water Subtype.
    Skills: Knowledge (Arcana) 4 ranks, Spellcraft 4 ranks
    Feats: Any 2 Racial Feats


    Class Skills
    The Legacy Shaman's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (all skills taken individually) (Int), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 4 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +2     +0     +2    Bonus Feat, +1 Level of current casting Class
    2. +1    +3     +0     +3    Meta Legacy, +1 Level of current casting Class
    3. +1    +3     +1     +3    Eel Companion, +1 Level of current casting Class
    4. +2    +4     +1     +4    Bonus Feat, +1 Level of current casting Class
    5. +2    +4     +1     +4    Meta Legacy, +1 Level of current casting Class
    6. +3    +5     +2     +5    Water Magic, +1 Level of current casting Class
    7. +3    +5     +2     +5    Bonus Feat, +1 Level of current casting Class
    8. +4    +6     +2     +6    Meta Legacy, +1 Level of current casting Class
    9. +4    +6     +3     +6    Improved Water Magic, +1 Level of current casting Class
    10.+5    +7     +3     +7   Legacy Master, +1 Level of current casting Class
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Legacy Shaman gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Bonus Feat: At Levels 1, 4 and 7 you can choose a Bonus Feat from the following list that you qualify for: Arcane Defense, Augment Summoning, Extend Legacy, Extra Legacy, Swift Legacy, Water Focus (Dragon 314).

    Meta Legacy (Su): At Levels 2, 5 and 8 you can choose one of the following effects to apply to a single Legacy you have (only one of these may be applied to any one Legacy):

    Empower: All variable, numeric effects of an empowered Legacy are increased by one-half. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are Legaciess without random variables.

    Enlarge: This may only be taken with Legacies that have a range. That range is now doubled.

    Maximize: All variable, numeric effects of a Legacy modified by this ability are maximized. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are Legacies without random variables.

    Eel Companion (Ex): At 3rd Level you gain an Animal Companion. This is identical t the Druid ability of the same name, but you can only choose a Dire Eel as your companion. Your effective Druid Level is equal to your casting Level, and Druid and Legacy Shaman Levels stack for purposes of determining your Druid Level for this ability.

    Water Magic: The Save DC's of spells you cast increase by +1 while you are in the water.

    Improved Water Magic: The Save DC's of spells you cast while in the water increase by an additional +1.

    Legacy Master (Su): At 10th Level you may choose 1 Legacy you have. You may now use that Legacy at will.

    PLAYING A LEGACY SHAMAN
    You have ambitions to be more than just a mere raider. You want others to see you aas more than a beast.
    Combat: You prefer your natural abilities or Legacies in combat. Your spells are saved for particularly hard targets.
    Advancement: You prefer to master the use of your Legacies. Controlling them sets you apart from the others.
    Resources: You have whatever you, or the tribe, can seize by force.

    LEGACY SHAMANS IN THE WORLD
    "Jiggly Bob is...unusual for a troll."
    You don't raid as much as the other trolls, and seem reasonable for a monster. It makes you the default contact point if someone wishes to speak to the tribe.
    Daily Life: Much of your day is spent refining your abilities and seeking out new ones.
    Notables:
    Organizations: You work for yourself, and occasionally the tribe. Everyone else can sod off.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's think of you as a monster still. You're just a monster they can deal with because you can control your appetites.

    LEGACY SHAMANS IN THE GAME
    This assumes one of the PC's is a spellcasting Troll, which is awkward at best.
    Adaptation: This is meant for troll-centric campaigns, but it could be redesigned as a more general Legacy based caster.
    Encounters: Legacy Shamans are generally found in their lairs, or on raids.

    Sample Encounter
    EL x: "Hi, I'm Jiggly Bob. And this is my boon companion, Jiggly Bill."

    Shock: You may now cast Storm Touch (Magic of Eberron) as a Spell-Like Ability.

    Shrink: You may now cast Minute Form (Complete Arcane) as a Spell-Like Ability. Unlike normal, you may only cast it on opponents within close range (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels).

    Sleep: Duration is now 1 hour per hit die, and the Troll doesn't need to maintain Concentration.

    Spell Shield: You may now cast Wall of Dispel Magic (Spell Compendium) as a Spell-Like Ability.

    Spikes: Your spikes are now consiered both Epic and Adamantine for purposes of bypassing Damage Reduction.

    Weaken: You may now cast Slay Living as a Spell-Like Ability.

    A Black Troll is an unholy mishmash of troll and demon. Less a hybrid, and more of a magical creation of some sort. Standing thirteen feet tall they have gleaming black skin, bright green eyes, and a pair of red horns.

    Rend (Ex): If a troll hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 2d8+10 points of damage.

    Rock Throwing (Ex): Adult Trolls are accomplished rock throwers and receive a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls when throwing rocks. A Troll of at least Large size can hurl rocks weighing 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects) up to five range increments. A Huge Troll can hurl rocks of 60 to 80 pounds (Medium objects). The range increment is 120 feet for a Black Troll's thrown rocks.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will: Darkness, Dispel Magic, Telekinesis, Greater Teleport (self plus 50 pounds of objects only). Caster level 7th. 3/day: Chain Lightning.

    Summon (Sp): Once per day a black Troll can attempt to summon 1 Black Troll or 1d3 Dretches with a 40% chance of success. This ability is the equivalent of a 3rd-level spell.

    Regeneration (Ex): Fire and acid deal normal damage to a troll. If a troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

    Combat: Black Trolls like to blast away with Chain Lightning before moving in for the kill.

    Shouldn't the attack bonus for thrown rocks be +9 then?

    A Huge Troll can hurl rocks of 60 to 80 pounds (Medium objects).
    How do these guys get Huge if they advance by character class?

    +14. They use Str for rock attacks not Dex like all Giants do. I has fixed.

    Things went off the rails this week so here's another troll I already had done. Will return t the Black Trolll shortly.


    Phaze Troll
    Medium Giant
    Hit Dice: 5d8+35 (57 hp)
    Initiative: +3
    Speed: 30 ft. (6 squares)
    Armor Class: 18 (+3 Dex, +5 Natural), touch 13, flat-footed 15
    Base Attack/Grapple: +3/+8
    Attack: Claw +8 melee (1d6+5)
    Full Attack: 2 Claws +8 melee (1d6+5) and 1 Bite +5 melee (1d6+3)
    Space/Reach: 10 ft./10 ft.
    Special Attacks: Rend (2d6+7), Spell-Like Abilities
    Special Qualities: Darkvision 120’, Low Light Vision, Regeneration 5, Scent, Magic Blind
    Saves: Fort +11, Ref +4, Will +3
    Abilities: Str 20, Dex 16, Con 24, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 6
    Skills: Hide +9, Listen +6, Move Silently +9, Spot +6
    Feats: Iron Will, Multiattack
    Environment: Underground
    Organization: Solitary
    Challenge Rating: 5
    Treasure: Standard
    Alignment: Usually Chaotic Evil
    Advancement: By Character Class
    Level Adjustment: +6

    Phaze trolls are smaller trolls heavily mutated by exposure to radiation or dangerous magics in the underdark. They appear as smaller trolls with highly defined muscles and knobby armored hide. Skin and hair color range from deep blue to purple-black, and they appear more intelligent than most trolls.

    Rend (Ex): If a troll hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 2d6+7 points of damage.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): 4/day: Dimension Door, Mirror Image. Caster Level 6th.

    Regeneration (Ex): Fire and acid deal normal damage to a troll. If a troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

    Magic Blind: Phaze Trolls are incapable of arcane or divine spellcasting but many of them are psionically active.

    Combat: Phaze Trolls are smart enough to be tacticians but most simply activate their powers and wade into the fight.

    BLACK TROLL CHARACTERS
    Very few Black Trolls become casters, and those are usually Sorcerers. Casting Trolls are usually near Epic encounters.
    Adventuring Race: Black Trolls adventure due to ambition or necessity.
    Character Development: Use Feats to boost your Spell-Like Abilities.
    Character Names:

    ROLEPLAYING A BLACK TROLL
    You were created to be a weapon, and others see you as such. Indeed, many of your own people see themselves as such.
    Personality: You have the hunger of a Troll, with the depravity of a Demon.
    Behaviors: You like to torture those weaker than you.
    Language: Black Trolls speak Giant and Abyssal.

    BLACK TROLL SOCIETY
    Black Trolls are at the lower rungs of Demonic society.
    Alignment : Due to Demonic influence, all Black Trolls are Chaotic Evil.
    Lands : Black Trolls live in the Abyss.
    Settlements : Black Trolls outside of the Abyss are usually summoned.
    Beliefs : Black Trolls who bother with religion usually prefer Baphomet, Kostchtchie or Vaprak.
    Relations: Everything is a resource or an obstacle, even your own kind.

    BLACK TROLL ADVENTURES
    · You have been volunteered to report for duty in the Blood War. To 4 separate Demon Lords, all who claim to be your new boss.
    · A Succubus has become the power behind the throne, charming your tribes chief. You need to figure out why.
    · The Dretch have suddenly got their dander up, and decided to take over the Layer of the Abyss that is your home. Unfortunately, there are thousands of them.




    Black Troll Racial Substitution Levels

    Ranger
    Level 1: Replace Wild Empathy with Savage Rending
    Savage Rending: You do double your Str Modifier with Rending attacks.
    Level 4: Replace Animal Companion with Abyssal Guerilla
    Abyssal Guerilla (Ex): You gain a +2 Bonus on Hide, Knowledge (Geography), Move Silently and Survival Checks made in the Abyss.

    Scout
    Levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19: Replace Skirmish with Ambush
    Ambush (Ex): In any round in which the Scout makes an attack against an opponent who is Flat-Footed or unaware of his presence he does +1d6 damage. He also gets this bonus to ranged attacks performed on any round in which he does not move. This extra damage increases by 1d6 for every four levels gained above 1st (2d6 at 5th, 3d6 at 9th, 4d6 at 13th, and 5d6 at 17th level).

    The extra damage only applies against living creatures that have a discernible anatomy. Undead, constructs, oozes, plants, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are not vulnerable to this additional damage. The scout must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. Scouts can apply this extra damage to ranged attacks made while skirmishing, but only if the target is within 30 feet.

    At 3rd level, the applicable range for your Ambush attack increases by +20'. This bonus improves by and additional 20' for every four levels gained above 3rd (+40' at 7th, +60' at 11th, +80' at 15th, and +120' at 19th level).

    A scout loses this ability when wearing medium or heavy armor or when carrying a medium or heavy load. If she gains the skirmish ability from another class, the bonuses stack.
    Levels 3, 11: Replace Fast Movement with a Bonus Feat at each Level

    Sorcerer
    Levels 1+: You gain Trollcaster.
    Trollcaster: When casting Summon Monster spells, you may use them to Summon Trolls as well. Summon Monster V can summon a Troll, Phaze Troll or Scrag. Summon Monster VI can summon a Crystalline Troll, Stone Troll or Wasteland Troll. Summon Monster V!! can summon a Cave Troll or Bladerager Troll. Summon Monster VIII can summon a Mountain Troll or Mur-Zhagul.

    And I still don't know how these get to grow Huge!

    · Legacy Trolls
    This might not belong here.

    have a Primary Claw attack doing 1d8 plus Strength Bonus, and a Secondary Bite attack doing 1d8 plus 1/2 Str Modifier. They get 2 Claws, and 1 Bite with a Full Attack.
    That's kind of on the weak side for a critter of this caliber, I'd say.

    I continue to just so absolutely love these sections!

    Snow Troll Racial Substitution Levels
    Red alert! Snow trolls have invaded this entry!

    Ambush (Ex): In any round in which the Scout makes an attack against an opponent who is Flat-Footed or unaware of his presence he does +1d6 damage. He also gets this bonus to ranged attacks performed on any round in which he does not move. This extra damage increases by 1d6 for every four levels gained above 1st (2d6 at 5th, 3d6 at 9th, 4d6 at 13th, and 5d6 at 17th level).
    Does the ranged version only apply when an opponent is flat-footed/unaware of the troll's presence or just about whenever the troll doesn't move in a round? (Because if it's the former, that'd be a straight downgrade from skirmish. Or so I'd argue.)

    Sorry for the delays. Work has been crushing me with overtime due to people quitting, so I've been getting called in on no notice after only 2 hours sleep.

    BLOOD WAR SOLDIER



    "Halt strangers! Prove to us that you are not Devils that you may pass!"

    A great many Black Trolls are conscripted into the Blood War. They fill in on odd spots where there just aren't enough problems to require more Demons.

    BECOMING A BLOOD WAR SOLDIER
    Just about any Black Troll qualifies if they're willing to serve (and probably even if they aren't willing).

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Black Troll
    BAB: +8
    Skills: Intimidate 4 ranks, Spot 4 ranks
    Feats: Lightning Fist, Summon Ally


    Class Skills
    The Soldier's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Listen (Wis), Search (Int), Spot (Wis) and Survival (Wis).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +1    +2     +2     +2    Improved Lightning Fist
    2. +2    +3     +3     +3    Black Giant
    3. +3    +3     +3     +3    Improved Spell Resistance
    4. +4    +4     +4     +4    Improved Lightning Fist
    5. +5    +4     +4     +4    Black Giant
    6. +6    +5     +5     +5    Improved Spell Resistance
    7. +7    +5     +5     +5    Improved Lightning Fist
    8. +8    +6     +6     +6    Black Giant
    9. +9    +6     +6     +6   Improved Spell Resistance
    10.+10   +7     +7     +7   Blood War Veteran
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Blood War Soldier gains proficiency with Simple and Martial Weapons.

    Improved Lightning Fist (Sp): At 1st Level the Caster Level for your Chain Lightning ability becomes equal to your Hit Dice. At 4th Level you get a +2 bonus on caster level checks (1d20 + caster level) made to overcome a creature’s spell resistance with this ability. This increases to +4 at 7th Level.

    Black Giant (Ex): At 2nd Level you gain Powerful Build: Whenever you are subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), you are treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to you.

    You are also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect you. You can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, your space and reach remain those of a creature of your actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.

    At 5th Level both your Strength Score and Natural Armor Bonus to AC permanently improve by +2.

    At 8th Level your Size Category improves by one to Huge.

    Improved Spell Resistance: At Levels 3, 6 and 9 your Spell Resistance increases by +2.

    Blood War Veteran: At 10th Level the Caster Level for all your Spell-Like Abilities becomes equal to your Hit Dice. Your DR increases to DR 15/Cold Iron and Good.

    PLAYING A BLOOD WAR SOLDIER
    You're a professional soldier, or at least as professional as a carnivorous monster working for an army devoted to Chaos can be. Sure, you follow orders to the letter, but no one says you can't burn a few villages along the way.
    Combat: You rely on rock throwing, before teleporting to close the gap and use your Lightning Fist.
    Advancement: Your training is sparse and generally controlled by the Abyssal armies.
    Resources: As long as you're fighting the Blood War, you may have access to backup.

    BLOOD WAR SOLDIERS IN THE WORLD
    "Sure, he's no Demon, but he has a mean right hand."
    You pretty much stick to guarding the Abyss unless sent elsewhere.
    Daily Life: You spend a lot of time being lectured on how to recognize Devils and defeat their tactics.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Unless you get loaned out, you're strictly a Demon army only kind oof guy. Mostly because they will enforce that.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's treat you pretty much like any other Fiendish Outsider.

    BLOOD WAR SOLDIERS IN THE GAME
    This class assumes you are, or were, a participant in the Blood War. This could have ramifications for party safety.
    Adaptation: This is generally meant for all Chaotic Evil campaigns, though you could be a refugee from the Blood War.
    Encounters: You're mostly found in the AByss or on the front lines of minor flare-up's in the Blood War.

    Sample Encounter
    EL x: Your unit has captured an Erinyes, and you have been assigned to guard her. Unfortunately, after waking up from several sharp blows to the head, she has decided you are 'fine breeding stock' who will 'father many of her children'. You're contemplating how to explain this to your superiors when four heavily armed Humanoids Gate in and demand you turn her over. "Oh noes" you think. "Oh no, however will I explain the capture of my great personal liability." Needless to say the Humanoids are stunned when you let them lead her away, with her vowing to return to your side despite all the odds...

    PHAZE TROLL



    "You look edible."

    Phaze trolls are smaller trolls heavily mutated by exposure to radiation or dangerous magics in the underdark. They appear as smaller trolls with highly defined muscles and knobby armored hide. Skin and hair color range from deep blue to purple-black, and they appear more intelligent than most trolls.

    PSYCHIC TROLL



    "I am not like you..."

    Some Phaze Trolls have an inexplicable talent for psionic powers. Their tribe considers them an odd sort: too useful to kill, too dangerous to let live. After all, your psionics aren't something that they can counter well. They can let you summon or resist fire or acid, meaning you can still gain the benefits of regeneration, whereas your opponent will not.

    BECOMING A PSYCHIC TROLLS
    Most Phaze Trolls with psionics qualigy.

    Class Skills
    The Psychic Troll's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Autohypnosis (Wis), Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Dungeoneering, Nature, Psionics) (Int), Profession (Wis), and Psicraft

    PLAYING A PSYCHIC TROLL
    Be as intimidating as you can. It's the only reason the matriarch of the Troll clan lets you live. If the tribe thinks they can take you they will. Also, try to be useful to give them a non fear based reason for killing you in your sleep.
    Combat: You usually rely heavily on your psionics, using them to back up the other trolls.
    Advancement: Technically speaking you're free to develop however you'd like. In practice, you'll need powers geared toward keeping you alive.
    Resources: You have the full might of the tribe if you're fighting for them.

    PSYCHIC TROLLS IN THE WORLD
    "He's up to something."
    Everyone seems to want you dead, even the other Trolls. Granted, you do eat anything not quick enough to flee...
    Daily Life: Most of your day is consumed with finding ever more food, no matter how much you eat.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Usually only other Trolls consider you worth the trouble, and even they are leery of you.

    NPC Reaction
    People generally find you far more terrifying than the average Troll.

    PSYCHIC TROLLS IN THE GAME
    This class assumes you are an eternally hungry monster. Might be best for npc's..
    Adaptation: This is meant for all Troll Campaigns, but the class could be re-flavored..
    Encounters: Psychic Trolls are rare, and usually only found in groups with a prevalence of Phaze Trollls.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's are in an odd position. They have been asked by Trolls to assassinate one of their own, who has developed a taste for eating them. And, surprise surprise, he's got magical powers.

    Stone Trolls are massive, standing just over 11' tall. Supplementing their diet with stone has led to mineral deposits in their body, and they often resemble stone themselves, giving them an edge in ambushing people in their native environment.

    Rend (Ex): If a troll hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 4d4+12 points of damage.

    Rock Throwing (Ex): Adult Trolls are accomplished rock throwers and receive a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls when throwing rocks. A Troll of at least Large size can hurl rocks weighing 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects) up to five range increments. A Huge Troll can hurl rocks of 60 to 80 pounds (Medium objects). The range increment is 120 feet for a Stone Troll's thrown rocks.

    Regeneration (Ex): Acid deals normal damage to a troll. If a troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump. If the Stone Troll takes both Fire and Cold damage from attacks in the same round it does not regenerate that damage.

    Reinforced (Ex): There is a 50% chance that any Critical hit on a Stone Troll is converted to a regular hit instead.

    Skills: A Stone Troll gains a +8 racial bonus on Hide checks in rocky terrain.

    Combat: Stone Trolls fight pretty much like any other Troll, but occasionally they also fling rocks if opponents are at a distance.

    STONE TROLL ADVENTURES
    · Four heavily armed drifters relieved themselves on your rock pile while you were out hunting. You eat those rocks! Someone must pay!
    · A Medusa has taken up shop nearby, and you can't evict her because her spellcasting stymies you at every turn. Worse, she calls you "adorable." Your wife really doesn't appreciate that.
    · A group of Rock Trolls down by the river called you a racial slur and took off. Time to round up the boys and do some pounding.



    Stone Troll Racial Substitution Levels

    Ranger
    Level 1: Replace Wild Empathy with Savage Rending
    Savage Rending: You do double your Str Modifier with Rending attacks.
    Level 4: Replace Animal Companion with Mountain Guerilla
    Arctic Guerilla (Ex): You gain a +2 Bonus on Hide, Knowledge (Geography), Move Silently and Survival Checks made in Mountain environments.

    Scout
    Levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19: Replace Skirmish with Ambush
    Ambush (Ex): In any round in which the Scout makes an attack against an opponent who is Flat-Footed or unaware of his presence he does +1d6 damage. He also gets this bonus to ranged attacks performed on any round in which he does not move. This extra damage increases by 1d6 for every four levels gained above 1st (2d6 at 5th, 3d6 at 9th, 4d6 at 13th, and 5d6 at 17th level).

    The extra damage only applies against living creatures that have a discernible anatomy. Undead, constructs, oozes, plants, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are not vulnerable to this additional damage. The scout must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. Scouts can apply this extra damage to ranged attacks made while skirmishing, but only if the target is within 30 feet.

    At 3rd level, the applicable range for your Ambush attack increases by +20'. This bonus improves by and additional 20' for every four levels gained above 3rd (+40' at 7th, +60' at 11th, +80' at 15th, and +120' at 19th level).

    A scout loses this ability when wearing medium or heavy armor or when carrying a medium or heavy load. If she gains the skirmish ability from another class, the bonuses stack.
    Levels 3, 11: Replace Fast Movement with a Bonus Feat at each Level.
    Level 10: Replace Blindsense with Tremor Sense 15'.
    Level 20: Replace Blindsight with Tremor Sense 30'.

    Cleric
    Levels 1+: You gain additional options when choosing Domains at 1st Level. In addition to whatever Domains your Deity normally offers you can choose from among the following: Charm (see Players Guide to Faerun), Earth, Knowledge, Sun, War or Weather (see Complete Divine).

    STONE SHAMAN



    "How dare you!"

    A Stone Shaman provides for the spiritual needs of the Stone Troll tribe, advises the leader and is oddly possessed of a strong urge to protect the land as well.

    Most Stoen Troll Clerics will qualify.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

    Weapon Proficiencies: A Stone Shaman gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Woodland Stride (Ex): Starting at 1st level, a Stone Shaman may move through any sort of Difficult Terrain that is natural and not manufactured. However, terrain areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion still affect her.

    Natural Caster: At Levels 2, 5 and 8 you can choose a Druid spell to add to your Cleric spell lost. This must be a spell of a Level you could cast. For example, if you are a Cleric 6Stone Shaman 2, you can choose any Druid spell of 5th Level or lower.

    Rock Familiar: At 3rd Level you can summon a Small Earth Elemental to serve as a Familiar. Doing so takes 24 hours and uses up magical materials that cost 100 gp, and it's tats will be listed below. It's abilities improve at Levels 6 and 9.

    Trackless Step (Ex): Starting at 4th level, a Stone Shaman leaves no trail in natural surroundings and cannot be tracked. She may choose to leave a trail if so desired.

    Camouflage (Ex):
    A Stone Shamn of 7th level or higher can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.

    Wise Woman (Su): At 10th Level your Rock Familiar gains a few new abilities (see below) and as long as it remains adjacent to you, you also gain it's Earth Glide ability. Spells you cast with the Earth descriptor are cast at +1 Caster Level.

    PLAYING A STONE SHAMAN
    You are somewhere between a Cleric and a Druid. And quite frustrated, given who you usually have to deal with.
    Combat: Combat isn't your prime focus, but you don't shy away from it.
    Advancement: Your advancement usually develops along the lines of whats best for the good of your tribe.
    Resources: When acting in the tribes interests you also have access to their resources.

    STONE SHAMANS IN THE WORLD
    "Don't litter when Grizelda is watching..."!
    Unlike the Shamans of most other Troll tribes, you ensure the environment of your mountain is kept clean, and woe betide he who despoils your home.
    Daily Life: Most of your day is taken up by your religious duties.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Your focus on the tribe takes up all your time. Not to mention, you aren't much of a joiner.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's react to you the same as any other Troll.

    STONE SHAMANS IN THE GAME
    This assumes you are some sort of leader within the Stone Troll community, which bags the question why you would be going on adventures.
    Adaptation: This as probably best for Troll based Campaigns.
    Encounters: Stone Shamans are only very rarely encountered out of their mountain homes.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's sit on a boulder to rest, when it promptly wakes up and asks what the hell they think they're doing.

    The Horag are rare crossbreeds resulting from the union between an Ogre and a Hill Giant. They are somewhat more powerful than Ogres, and somewhat more tactically inclined than Hill Giants despite being on the same intellectual level.

    Combat: The Horag despise ranged combat. It's not that they aren't capable, they just like killing things up close and personal.

    Hide armour should reduce that speed.

    Level Adjustment: +
    Lemme guess. +3? (It absolutely doesn't deserve LA, though. I mean, +2 STR +2 CON and +2 natural to AC for +4 Giant HD compared to an ogre? That's just sad. Not hill giant level of sad, but sad none the less.)
