The Half-troll warlord is an NPC that leads strong and fearless forces of Half-trolls to serve the Lord of Mordor. Players can hire Half-trolls, warriors, rhino riders, or banner bearers from him for a suitable amount of coins and alignment. The warlord spawns in a warlord house standing over the fire-pit. You may also buy a warhorn from him.

Like all other captains, the warlord is usually peaceful to the player even if you have negative alignment to the Half-trolls. However, if you attack him he will fight back.


The Half-Troll Warlord spawns inside of the warlord house on the center block of cobblestone above the fire under the floor in the center of the hut.


They will wander outside of their house, occasionally wandering back inside; like all unit hiring NPC's, they will not attack you unless provoked, even if the player had negative Half-trolls alignment.


Troll bones, rotten flesh, worn equipment, silver coins, and armour.


Upon hiring a unit from a warlord, the player earns the achievement "Brutal Hordes".
