Special Abilities

Infuriate (SP): As an attack action, an internet troll can provoke an enemy within 30 feet who can see and hear them. That enemy must succeed at a DC 20 Will Save (the DC being Charisma-based) or deal half damage with attacks and offensive abilities that don't include the internet troll as a target until the troll leaves the area, is slain, or infuriates someone else.

Unexpected Recovery (SP): You have put together a great argument against the troll that it can't reasonably argue against. You think you have slain it, when it retorts with a post that defies all reason and continues fighting! Once per day, as a full-round action, the troll can write a post that causes it to regain 15 hit points and gain a +2 bonus to AC and saving throws until the start of its next turn.

Anger Feeding (SU): The Internet Troll feeds off the frustration of others. Whenever a creature misses it with an attack, it regains 1d6 hit points.


Internet trolls are wretched beasts that live in the underside of civilization. They wander alleyways at night, catching unlucky insomniacs they finds wandering the streets and harassing them before eating them up. They dislike reason, and have a special hate for lawful characters.

The only beings internet trolls truly fear are celestial creatures called moderators.

NOTES:
The internet troll is a "joke" monster, but it is meant to be fully playable and balanced. Please tell me what you think.

It needs to be healed y flame attacks, because flaming feeds the trolls.

It should have regeneration for as long as players are paying attention to it. Maybe every time someone says something about it (besides the bare minimum "I full attack the troll") it regains 5 health?

I'd probably make it that it regains 5 hp if it was a target of anything from any creature in the previous round. You could limit it to sentient creatures.

I sort of already have this with Anger Feeding.

That would be overpowered for a CR 5 monster, and would discourage awesome attack descriptions. Neat idea, though.

Yes, but that's only if they miss an attack. And it doesn't have a high AC.

The standard troll is CR 5. :smallconfused:

I upped its AC by increasing the Natural Armour* and ego bonuses.

*I spell "armour" like that because I'm Canadian.

If this is to be playable, it shouldn't reference post-writing in the rules.

Also, the DC for Infuriate should be Charisma-based, with a high racial bonus to bring it to the point you find appropriate. You also might want to have a high Charisma (instead of the racial bonus), probably with a strong racial penalty on Diplomacy; trolls, while unpopular, do have a very strong personality, and would actually be good at several notable CHA-based skills such as Bluff and Intimidate.

Good ideas. I shall implement them.

Funny, but shouldn't infuriate only work against targets that can't see the internet troll. :smalltongue:
