The One Ring: Fellowship of the New Alliance
Stone-Trolls are solitary predators, living in small groups in filthy caves strewn with the remains of unwary travellers. They seem to be more intelligent than other Troll types, maybe thanks to their habit of prowling in the proximity of populated areas. Their appearance, while always frightful, is made less monstrous by their tendency to wear simple clothes, cook their food and use tools like drinking jugs and barrels. A very ancient breed, Stone- Trolls owe their name to the fact that they turn to stone if exposed to the light of the Sun.
