Dragon trolls are neither part dragon nor part troll. Rather they just seem to be born of such a combination and rely on the mistake of opponents assuming it hates fire. These vicious monstrosities have no rhyme or reason and should be put down right away. They thrill at burning foes and will have many fire-based traps in their lairs. These beings seem to thrive on destruction and they are never seen eating. Some say they eat fire and smoke.

 
One of the powers of dragon trolls is that they thrive on fire. When they are hit with fire attacks they gain armor and hit points temporarily. If a dragon troll is burnt for 10 damage then their armor increases by one and their hit points increase by 10. This is cumulative and lasts for 8 turns. The other thing included in this ability is even more dangerous. The dragon troll's fiery breath weapon increases every time it is hit with a fire attack. The breath weapon is base 3-24 and all fire-based damage that the dragon troll has accumulated is added to the the breath weapon damage for a one time effect. They can breathe fire twice a day.



Treat their all iron axes as halberds.if heated they are treated as having the properties of flame tongues for 3 rounds but with these bonuses:



+1 vs. regenerating creatures

+2 vs. cold-using, inflammable or avian creatures

+4 vs. undead


 
One of the things about dragon trolls is that they do not like the company of trolls. They prefer orcs, ogres, and gnolls but will entertain most humanoids of any evil alignment usually catering to their crudest traditions with great zest. Creatures of the Elemental Plane of Fire hate dragon trolls and will actively avoid them if summoned. Most elementals, dragons and fire-using creatures find dragon trolls repulsive as well. Even though dragon trolls like most evil creatures they only work for temples of a neutral and evil ideology.
