Mad Monk Albo delivers an eloquent blow! 4 sentences plus citation for 10hp of damage.
The Scholarly Em encants a crushing essay lecture with 8 (I think, right?) compound sentenses for a total of 16hp of damage. The Sumter Troll's head explodes and its now lifeless husk falls to its knees before keeling over to its side. The corpse smokes a fine orange dorito powder and oozes with Troll Slime, the manifested bile of wasted life and repressed self loathing. This can be bottled for use in Intelligent attacks on humans as a potion grenade if anyone is interested. As you all peer over your first Troll kill you see the swamp continuing to stir. Deezy congratulates you all on yr first Troll kill and explains the essence of the Trolls evil. He says....
"Since the creation of gromenia a strange evil presence has creeped over the land... the essence of this evil is manifested in Trolls. These creatures are each brought into the realm through a unique portal. Its origin, no one knows. To kill a troll merely slows that evil down, for pretty soon it will appear again. Trolls will and can manifest anywhere in gromenia.... they appear out of the rocks, through the walls and as you saw,out of the swamp. We are getting closer and closer to the realm of Ophtopic where they roam freely. The only problem is no one really has lived and come back sane enough to tell their tale. These sad adventurers may have been pleasant people to begin with but too much time around true weirdos, racists, political extremists and illiterates made them go crazy. They never recovered.... they just became angry...defeated and logged out mentally, which is how they get their name... The Logged Out. We must enter this realm and fortify our and our fellow adventurers Intelligence and Moral and uncover the root of this evil presence. "
As Deezy finishes his speech you hear more of a stir in the swamp. Slowly you see the beginnings of another mound appear. Deezy exclaims, "quickly, into the cave! It will soon reform!"
As you make your way into the cave you get a true sense of the relentless annoyance of trolls and become eager to uncover the root of this evil, and destroy it!
