Ahoy, mateys!

I am back again with another meta game. this time, you'll be helping a mountain troll through life! you decide what our friend will do, will he become a hunter and simply roam the mountainside gathering leather and food from the local wildlife? or will he become a warrior mercanary fighting for the highest bidder? or will he create his own mountain home, mining for unknown treasures in the mountains?
Or will he become a cunning wizard, mastering the techniques of ancient magic?

you decide. but for now, our troll is very basic, having a leather loincloth and a wooden club.
through your wise decision making, you'll turn him into something great.


Our troll has awoken from a very long slumber, and is ready to take on the world.


Ages past he raided a dwarven merchant caravan and stole whatever he could. he got this map, depicting the local area. it's pretty old and parts are fading away, exploring the countryside will help us know more of the area.


So, what to do? first you must decide an awesome name for him. then what he should do, visit the local tavern? though there might not actually be a tavern, as the map is quite old.

whoop

(I'll use hammerspace for items. don't actually need to eat or anything, won't go that deep and advanced. though he'll get a strength boost if he eats.
i'll add more, need sleep.)

He's a troll, trolls have what kind of names? That's right... sophisticated. Therefore, his name must be Thoeda'ar von Whippenton Zarda'an the Fifth, because he can. When he goes to the tavern, he should break an empty bottle, place the sharp bottom at his eye and use it like a monocle that's embedded into his face.

He should seem refined, but act psychotic.

Yes.

No.

Let's try being adventurously heroic this time, not randomly psychotic.  Think chaotic good, or unprincpled if you've ever played a Palladium game.  In fact, he looks more like a Palladium ogre more than any troll I can think of.

woke up today to find my new thread had recieved a pleasant 11 replies!

i'll set up a poll for name.

the game will be set in a kinda dwarf fortress/norse world.
The Troll is about twice the size of a normal sized man. he is quite strong, able to lift heavy boulders.
if you decide to just stay in the same cave for ever, you could want to improve it, like, make traps and hallways, catch dangerous animals and use them for pets. there are treasure hunters everywhere, looking to loot whatever we might find, like jewelry and so on.

Humans are neutral to you, dwarves are neutral and elves are neutral, but all are very cautious towards your actions.

The Troll is not very bright, possessing only basic common english, though hardly understandable. tribute to Huck's Burke adventure .__.
We could get a job as a blacksmith, if the employer is that desperate as to hire a troll.

anything could be done.

I suppose we won't go all Kogan on his arse, turning all psychotic as soon as possible.

Ok, so forget the psychotic then, in any case, he should try to get a monocle, a top hat and a cane before he starts anything big, he might as well look his best.
