Description[edit]

A giant troll is a crossbreed between a troll and a hill giant, and resembles an oversized troll with reddish brown skin and red-rimmed eyes. A giant troll may wield a large spiked club made from a tree trunk or a house timber, or grab a human-sized target and wield the struggling victim like a club, beating a new target with the body.
