    You are a Highland Troll. Lurking under bridges in the mountains is your primary means of procuring a means of survival. You have recently moved out from the bridge you were born under and closer to the humans living in the foothills below.
    You are:
    -close to nine feet tall and are heavily muscled.
    -the proud owner of thick, rocky skin
    -extremely sensitive to light, you can stand about fifteen minutes of daylight before you turn into stone until nightfall.
    You are lurking under your bridge as night is falling. You are in a ravine thirty odd feet deep; your flimsy wooden bridge swings in the wind, above you.

    Wait till someone passes. Grab the bridge when they're halfway across and threaten to drop them if they don't answer your riddle. If they guess wrong, you get their food. If they guess right. They go free.

    Deciding to experiment with your ability to withstand the sunlight, you grab the top of a wrecked covered wagon laying in the bottom of the ravine.
    You snack on the body of a peasant you had lying around from when you first moved in, gnawing it down to the bones.
    You wait patiently but no-one crosses your bridge during the night.
    As sunrise approaches, you decide to cover the exposed skin in mud. Slathering on a thick layer of muck, you wait in the bottom of the ravine for day break.
    Glorious colours down through the top of the ravine and at first you are elated, it works!

    You decide to grab a branch, leaving your bridge alone. When you start climbing out of the ravine, your mud armour starts to rub off. It is fairly thin and crumbling by the time you reach the top of the chasm. You retrieve a small tree to use as a club.

    The wagon mostly contained bins of cabbage and a pair of chickens. You are currently wearing the covering for it. You smear more mud on your body before sitting in a sunny spot in the ravine next to the bridge. You nod off several times, ambushing a group of deer one of the times you are awake, clubbing a stag and a fawn.
    When you wake as the sun is setting, you notice a small tunnel at the bottom of the ravine. Parts of the wrecked wagon are missing

    Taking several branches and the floor of the wagon, you manage to rig up a crude cover for the bridge. At the same time, you reinforce the sides of the bridge, making it more stable.
    You start to dig into the side of the ravine and break through into a 7 foot tall, rough cave. It is around 15 feet wide and a similar length. You can see several 5 foot tall tunnels leading into the darkness.
    There is a massive pile of wood in this room, you recognize parts of the wagon.

    Aside from the pieces of wagon, nothing else is missing from your stash at the bottom of the ravine. You collapse the tunnels further into the soil.
    Deciding to pay back the thieves for their poor judgment, you begin the construction of rough walls on your covered bridge.

    You look at your bridge, congratulating yourself on the good work. You notice the golden light of the sunrise cresting the mountains to the west. Dawn approaches.

    You dart quickly under the bridge, you grab the fawn as you do, for something to gnaw on during the day.

    Eventually, you hear the clomping of hooves and strange, ugly noises from a group of creatures resting in the field on east side of your bridge.

    Okay, you wrap your rough cloak around yourself and grab your club. Leaping up onto the top of the ravine, you swing and send a sword wielding human in leather armour flying backwards with a wet cracking noise. A dwarf carrying a pair of axes also stands near the bridge. Back a ways are a pair of humans, one wielding a crossbow and the other wearing elaborate platemail and carrying a sword. An elf carrying a staff stands with a group of rapidly panicking horses.

    You rush forward, ignoring the dwarf as you do. The human with the crossbow raises it and fires at you, but it bounces off your rocky hide. The human in platemail moves to intercept you, chanting to himself as he does. The elf does something similar.
    You swing your club and the human attempts to parry it with his sword. He offers much more resistance than you would expect. The elf begins to glow brightly and you feel your skin begin to tingle.

    Jump off bridge into the ravine below. The fall shouldn't do much to us. We need to get out of the sun. Don't go to the cave, in case they leave and come back with more. If they stay, we will be better off fighting them under the bridge. If they leave we make for the cave and wait.
