>Trolls and giants. Trudvang is full of these creatures, which can be both small and gigantic. They hide in the forests and deep in the wombs of the mountains.
>In the family of trolls there are forest trolls, rune trolls, king trolls, grey trolls, stone trolls, ice trolls, reses, the list is almost endless. As if this wasn't enough, trolls have a tendency to do a lot of inter-breeding between races, which has lead to such a diverse number of sub-species that many scholars claim that to catalogue them all would be impossible. In some cases you can encounter what some would call a forest troll, but which is as large and fierce as a grey troll. In other cases a grey troll may have the mighty tusks of an ice troll.
>The list of giants is also quite extensive, if not as impressive as that of the trolls. Hrimturses, muspeljotuns, and forest giants are some of the more common varieties of giants, but many scholars also claim to have seen jalkrturses and lögrjotuns. Jalkrturses are supposedly animals of gigantic proportions with antlers like those of a moose, and the lögrjotuns are the mythical giants said to live in the raging oceans. To these you can add a whole mess of giant creatures that are not actually categorized as giants.
>The learned and decorated bestiarius Jorge Gronfjard insisted that both giants and trolls were originally of the same breed, the so-called bastjur, but more of this is written in Jorge's Bestiarium.
Image: from left to right, hrimturse, rune troll, muspeljotun, grey troll, king troll and what wikipedia insists should be translated as wight, but I would probably prefer to call a goblin or a gremlin, as that is the association the word has today.
