Trollkin Genius (Troll)

In the First Age, after the defeat of Chaos, all the races of the Man Rune formed the Unity Council, which presided over an age of first peace, then of killing and eating horse-riders. Then some of the council (Elves, Dragonnewts, Stupid Humans) decided the SUN was not enough light, no, they needed to break the Great Compromise and create a GOD OF LIGHT. There were already WAY TOO MANY Gods of light. So those ignorant punks decided to create Nysalor, who was an evil scumbag. Then he smote our mother, Kygor Litor, tricking her into eating him, then burning his way out, Yelm-style. Henceforth Troll women gave birth to us, the Enlo, called 'Trollkin' by other races. Cragspider half-fixed the curse, probably because she is only half-troll (and half-spider), and now half the time you get a dark troll or a cave troll and half the time you get us, the Enlo.

We're treated like garbage, yet like all trolls, we instinctively obey our mothers, even when they're mean. Then again, every troll but us is mean. We can't be mean because it gets us killed. Enlo vary greatly in competence and you're one of the very smartest. So you get trusted with jobs most Enlo would never get, like counting bags of grain or stacking the corpses for salting and smoking for later consumption (most trollkin would try to eat them and get sick because they ate too much).

And now you've been given an incredible task - go scout out the other races and report back! Everyone underestimates a trollkin. Even ducks, who are the human equivalent of trollkin, look down on you and that's low. But you're smarter than they are, to be honest, you're pretty sure you're smarter than most trolls, so you are the man for the job.

If you encounter any Troll priestesses, you are supposed to obey them as best you can without compromising your mission, which is a *secret*, which means don't tell other people. Publically, you are, like many trolls, initiated as a lay member of the cult of Kygor Litor. But you actually have been covertly initiated into cult of Subere, who keeps the secrets of the trolls, and so you must keep them too!

You can be male or female; trollkin aren't allowed to breed, and otherwise it doesn't matter, really. Does it?

Take this playbook if you want to dig into an alien mindset and be cunning, weird, and sneaky.

Unlike normal Trolls, you have to wear armor, but HEY, you have a suit of lead armor worth 1 point of protection because your priestess boss sees you as valuable! Also, unlike normal Trolls, you don't need sunglasses, you can handle normal light, *and* thanks to your goddess, you still have normal darksense. There's a win. But you're too weak for any kind of big, tough weapons.
