Eschalon Book II: The Mire Troll
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Basilisk Games has released the second installment of its October creature features, showcasing one frightening denizen of the world of Eschalon: Book II. Each week the company will unveil a new creature, offering both concept artwork and a detailed description. The second creature showcased is the Mire Troll, a frightening resident of the marshlands and bogs of Eschalon. Possessed of supernatural regenerative powers the monster will challenge those adventuring in the swampy areas of the land.

The Mire Troll is a foul beast that lives in marshlands and bogs across the temperate zones of Eschalon. Little is known of the origins of the troll-kin races, but many scholars have noted prominent reptilian and Hobgoblin similarities, suggesting a common history. One of the most fascinating and dangerous aspects of the Mire Troll is its ability to regenerate lost health during combat, making it a very difficult creature to best in battle. When engaged in combat, it is necessary to destroy the beast as quickly as possible lest it will regenerate its health and never succumb to death! They have a dreaded fear of fire, a weakness that should be taken advantage of whenever possible.

Mire Trolls are also known to be very territorial, savagely protecting their claimed range from trespassers. They care little for gold or valuables, but they often collect the shiny trinkets that are scattered about after they've dismembered an adventurer who foolishly wandered into their territory.
