Trolls

Trolls can be described as tall, short, thin, fat, hairy, ugly, good looking (Okay that one might be a stretch), hairless, dumb, smart, big thugs, smart thinkers.  . . Yeah so pretty much it depends on which myth you are going by.  Different cultures believe different things about different trolls.  If you've seen Harry Potter, you might think all trolls are big, ugly and stupid.  If you have played Skylanders: Spyros Adventures, (Yes I finally played a video game!)  than trolls can appear a little more smart and they have chosen a side!

Trolls are so different between different cultures that seriously no one would know if you created an entire new species of Troll.  There are so many already!

  1. I know it’s not May 7th yet, but in line with my “T” post today I just wanted to take a moment now, before we reach the end of The Challenge, to thank you for co-hosting it all. While exhausting it has been yet exhilarating, and in some ways life-changing for me, as well. Much of that was due to the help, hope and incredible encouragement you offered along the way. Simply put, I’m grateful, and wanted to say thanks!

  3. SO, I could create an attractive community of trolls who do amazing miraculous work based on spiritual powers? I think I love this T.

  4. And if you've seen the movie Troll Hunter then you know there's a government conspiracy to keep trolls hidden!

  6. Almost went with Troll too! So many varieties: Common Trolls, Chaos Trolls, River Trolls (under the bridge variety!) and Stone Trolls. And there is the iconic Troll Slayer (but I did his cousin the Daemon Slayer for 'D'). Rent Troll Hunter (Netflix) for a great Blairwitch-esque mockumentary.

    1. Before doing all this research, I didn't know there were so many different trolls. It was tons of fun writing and learning about!

  7. There's also the fast trolls from the Elder Chronicles (my husband and son are currently playing Oblivion), and the Myth Adventures series of books have Trolls and Trollops. :)

  8. Interesting how we have so many point-of-views on something like trolls!!! I have read various books that depict them differently. Sometimes it confuses your mental images if you read one book followed by another with differing views!

    1. I agree. Funny how Trolls come in so many different ways. I would have thought they would be one that kinda had set specifications.
