The trolls lost strength after the Gbaji wars which could not be replaced except through the greatest efforts. In the whole of the five centuries only one troll came close to making that effort, though hundreds of them heroquested to try for it. That one was Cragspider, a dark troll who started in the spider cult and worked her way to deity.

Well, bugger it! In my Glorantha she's a Hero. It's more glorious that way.
