The Dwarven Trollslayer is an illustration of the strange personal psychology that dooms young Dwarves to short and violent lives. Dwarves who have been disgraced, crossed in love or otherwise shamed (which may well be entirely in their own imagination) will abandon conventional Dwarven society and go to seek death, hunting down the most ferocious beasts. Most of them die fairly quickly, but those few who survive become members of the strange cult of Trollslayers. Trollslayers exist only to die, and by doing so redeem whatever disgrace they suffered in the past (and into which it is neither polite nor wise to enquire). They court death by deliberately seeking uneven battles - going alone into Goblin Strongholds is one example. Trolls are considered the ideal opponents, because the Dwarf's death is almost a certainly. Trollslayers can be recognised easily by their hair, which is typically spiked and dyed orange, and the many tattoos which cover their bodies. They also favour exotic jewellery, such as earrings and nose rings. They spend a great deal of their time boasting of their exploits and showing off their many scars, and often indulge of overeating, fasting, and excessive consumption of stimulants.
