What Richard says makes a lot of sense to me. It remenbered me an historian that says that people around the Mediterranean Sea ar all basically the same stock and have been the same for thousands of years. That includes their fundamental cultural traits (what they eat, how they live, family ties, etc.). Empires (greeks, romans, muslins, etc.) come and go; religions (pagans, christians, muslins) come and go; yet the basic traits remain the same.

And cloth makes a good snack when you don't have nothing else to eat. A question: we humans also eat with our eyes; does the darksense perception of food contribute to the pleasure that trolls get from eating?
