The Trollborn

The trollborn are a feared and respected people. Their blood is half human, half troll. The trollbom are noted for their strength and cunning. Some become fearsome warriors, while others excel in sorcery. Often ugly, powerful, and ill-tempered, they are easily differentiated from common human stock, and yet others consider them human-or mostly human. Although troll blood may have been in a family for generations, only those of the first generation are considered trollborn. All others are merely humans, although their troll ancestry may taint them in the eyes of others. The trollborn are easily identified: they are almost universally larger than normal men, usually much stockier and more muscular. Some may grow as tall as seven feet in height. They are seldom handsome, and are often quite ugly. Their temperaments range from bad to worse, although they do have their good moods and senses of humor. The trollborn have no definite tendencies in lifestyle, most often living as other men. Some prefer the isolated surroundings of deep woods. Others gain a reputation as kings' champions. Not a few live on rocky islands, practicing sorcerous arts. No matter where they live, the trollborn tend to be secretive and individualistic, rarely bowing to authority. The fearsome reputation of their kind causes common folk to deal with them respectfully or not at all.

Due to their blood, trollborn characters:

OPTION A: gain a +1 to Strength, Constitution, and Intelligence. However, they suffer a -1 to Wisdom and a -2 on Charisma.

OR

OPTION B: gain a +1 to Strength OR Constitution and -1 to something that isn't Strength nor Constitution (if your 9 isn't the Strength nor Constitution, then it must be what your 9 is)

OR

OPTION C: gain a +1 to Strength AND Constitution and -1 to two things that aren't Strength nor Constitution (if your 9 isn't the Strength nor Constitution, then it must be what your 9 is)

OR

OPTION D: gain a +1 to Strength AND Constitution and -2 to one thing that isn't Strength nor Constitution (if your 9 isn't in Strength nor Constitution, then it must be what your 9 is)



The trollborn can be Warriors, Wanderers, Berserkers, Runemakers, Rogues, or Sorcerers (Wizards).

The trollborn can see in the dark (60' range).

The trollborn cannot roll on the Fate table...
