Special Traits

  • Massive. The hill troll can move into spaces already occupied by Large or smaller creatures. When it does so, creatures in those spaces must make a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw, taking 21 (2d20) bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
  • Monolithic. While the hill troll remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a small hillock.
  • Regeneration. The hill troll regains 30 hit points at the start of its turn. If the hill troll takes acid or fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the hill troll’s next turn. The hill troll dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.

About

A hill troll’s gargantuan size is its own unlikely camouflage – few suspect that the grassy verge they camp on or the steep slope they traverse will end up devouring them. Hidden in plain sight, a hill troll is patient, waiting for an opportunity to spring on unsuspecting travelers. Moss and grass grow on its back during its long periods of dormancy, only enhancing its camouflage.
