Uzuz - The Mistress Trolls

A cultural keyword for HeroQuest and Hero Wars.

The Mistress trolls are the revered mothers of the uz. They are an ancient breed, pre-dating history. Uzuz are usually large creatures (2.5 - 2.7m tall) and very intelligent. They are rare creatures with very poor eyesight - they can generally tell when there is light or dark - but advanced darksense.

Innate Abilities: Acute darksense 12w, Bite and Claw, Digest anything 5w, [local Uz land] Geography, Endure cold 12w2, Hungry 17w, Know ancestry 15w, Knowledge of Uz-home, Large 5w, Move silently 12, Resist poison, Strong 5w, Uz customs, Uz myths

UzUz are very rare in historical times and tend to have large followings - whether they want one or not. Bodyguards assigned by the clan or tribe and apprentices, priests and other hanger-ons are drawn to their majesty.
