Troll

Artwork of a Troll.

Troll is a monster found in the fifth Hero and Monster Collection set, Visions of Dawn. It was first found in the Second Edition Conversion Kit.

DescriptionEdit

A relative of ogres, trolls are brutish creatures possessing incredible strength and size. Unlike their cousins, however, trolls are extremely clumsy, having difficulty controlling their vast power. Even a single blow from a troll can be lethal, on the other hand, so wise adventurers are always cautious around them. The strongest trolls can take down several adventurers at a time, and often have elaborate tattoos on their arms.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Reach: This monster may attack targets up to 2 spaces away.

TriviaEdit
