A very odd creature - and I would have to say if the head gets hot enough to melt ice quickly, than it really is a magical creature - trying to obtain enough calories to do that would be prohibitive. This also helps do away the issue with all that heated air/steam in their tunnels.
That said, its an interesting critter - I do have a thing for arctic creatures in general. Go to Comment
I like this discussion and the back and forth discussion of the trolls. The fae nature of Trolls is something I'd adopt as well. The rubbery regenerator of AD&D is so much more shallow then these folks. Go to Comment
