Trolls, Darkspear

The Darkspear trolls are civilized to a degree, living in small villages. They may seem almost like wild animals in the sense that they have a simplistic way of life. They are very spiritual and superstitious. They strongly believe in keeping spirits happy.

Physical Description
On average, they stand 7 feet tall, but can be anywhere from 6 to 8.5 feet tall. Their skin is generally a shade of blue, but has been known to have green or purple tints. They have large, pointed ears resembling that of an elf and long noses. They have long and lanky, yet very muscular arms and legs. They have only two large toes on their feet, and three fingers on each hand (Two, plus an opposable thumb). Male trolls are hunched over, and have large tusks protruding outward from underneath their upper lip. Females stand upright, and their tusks come from their lower lip and point up.

They get along well with Orcs, and generally dislike Humans How they feel about other races will vary depending on the specific troll. Most trolls don't know much about other races because they almost never live in civilization, only in tribes, and small villages with their own kind. A lot of other races, look down on the trolls, as they often see them as savages.

The Darkspear trolls are nearly all a neutral race, most of them are true neutral, though some may be chaotic or lawful.

Their tribe resides in a tropical jungle island region.

They do not worship any of the common deities. However, they seem to have an affinity for reptiles. Not much else is known about their religious ways. Some have been known to practice Shamanism, as well.

They have their own language (appropriately named Troll). They speak with a Jamaican or Cuban accent.
