It builds to something that it does not really deliver. First couple paragraphs were good and then it left the rails.

Have to agree with Kinslayer, though I do like the backstory about Balaak and all that Go to Comment

It seems I am the lone voice of dissension. This jerky has too much D&D flavour: namely in that a vague species-based pantheon of pc-style deities grant plentiful healing magic (and by not being on-tap, some quick-fix is then needed), and that trolls not only regenerate, but do so even after death. I'm just glad that this isn't used as a never-ending food supply as well. I suppose that maybe something could be made from this submission--it does use the Law of Alchemy--but it has too much salt for my taste. Go to Comment

The idea ain't bad at all. Problem with this post is that it is so SHORT! As I said to Moon earlier: general items like these do not necessarily need a thorough description, but in this case I feel it was a little too short. 3/5

Had you used 10-15 minutes longer on this item, I am sure it would have been a 4. Go to Comment

I wonder about that line of ingesting only small amounts of the jerky: what if one eats too much of it? Or an alchemist tries to make a more powerful version for more healing, lowering the threshold? Would this result in a troll-like chesburster?

Meanwhile, if alchemy can distill the essences of living being to emulate their characteristics, your standard fantasy ecology offers lots of (evil) possibilities: need darkvision? A potion with the distillate of some underground race Go to Comment

Now this is what alchemy should be about - the distillation and use of the inherent properties of substances, both magical and mundane - I like it a lot

I also quite like the implied difficulty in getting hold of it - you must first convince a troll to part with some of his own flesh (this is not going to be easy)

Hey - I wonder if there's a potential scenario there

Yeah, this sort of thing is something that *I* would do as a player, I never even thought of this. Next time I run into a troll as a player, you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be looking to do this. AWESOME...

About the shortness, sometimes ideas don't need a long writeup to explain them. As far as I am concerned, the short length of the writeup does not diminish the coolness of the idea.

5/5, easily. One of the best simple ideas I've seen in a long time. Go to Comment

I agree with Dragon Lord on this one, alchemy at its finest.
It would be funny to see though, convincing a troll to part with this flesh of his, then using it in battle against him to obtain more.
A society with very powerful members could even engage in "Troll farming." Go to Comment

An interesting idea would be to have troll "farms". Places where live trolls are kept, and every day, or so, an arm or two are sawed off to make these rations. Of course the arms will grow back eventually. Go to Comment

 As alchemy was very much a magic and emotional take of chemistry.  I don't know if this is alchemy, this seems more like bringing an element of Sci-fi into the fantasy setting. Which certainly is fine in some settings, but this seems to be based on a clear vanilla D&D troll.  I would be interested to hear what this community has to say about the realism, physics and chemistry versus the themes of a game.  For example clever players may use mend spells to take the natural cracks out of a material such as flint to make it super hard and and sharp.  Does this fit with the theme of the game.



At anyrate nice idea, simple, compact back story and easy to slide into a game.  You stick in some other animal if you don't like trolls, hydra rations or something.

Ran into this and it's great! The formatting of paragraphs is a little off. Short, to the point, and a very userful jerky. Go to Comment

A neat addition to any alchemists arsenal, although I do agree it could stand to be a little longer. Go to Comment
