  • Troll hoards are already hard to find to me, but when I find one, there are always many useless items inside the chests. Maybe it should be more challenging. The stone rooms in Zelda mod are stunning to me. The Troll's Cave and its key are certainly canon, and it would worthy enough to add them.

    Stone doors: Since beta 27, we got gates. The door of a Troll's cave really should be a gate in order to let a troll in or out, but there were called "a big door of stone" anyway. A stone door could be crafted on Angmar or Gundabad crafting tables, and its mechanics same as gates. However it looks like a Dwarven door but it don't glow at night. Along with Keys for gates, this kinds of door could only open by a largish key. Certainly, a largish key would be dropped by a troll in a certain rate.

    Then I'd like to talk about the protection of caves. Previously I mentioned Zelda mod, the hoards are well protected in that mod, and it is different from banner protection (btw, I think trolls won't use banners of Angmar for sure.) Their mechanics is the hoard rooms would always be protected until you fit the key into the key-hole. This is a very good idea.

    Of the inside of a troll's cave. The toll's caves is a place for trolls to hide from the sun in. They don't just guard the hoards, and the caves are kinds of their bedrooms during daytime. So there should have:

    1. Barrels of ale are mentioned in The Hobbit. There should some empty barrel, but one barrel of ale which was still full.
    2. Plates with food. The company found plenty of food in the cave. Food would be bread, rabbit meats and mutton.
    3. Waste Blocks on the ground. There were bones on the floor and a nasty smell was in the air, so Waste Blocks would be a perfect choice as floor.
    4. More coins in the caves. There are pots full of gold coins standing in a corner. Since there are no pots nor gold coins in the mod, I think more silver coins in chests would be nice.
    5. Gondolinian equipment instead of High Elven equipment. They found Gondolinian equipment rather than equipment which used by Elves from Third Age. Troll's Caves would be hard to find and rare to get the key, it would be okay with Godolinian equipment.

    • A much needed addition, no doubt...

    • We may need new plates and chests to give a trollish feel, the current ones look funny in there...

    • The stone doors would probably be quite crudely shaped. Trolls aren't craftsmen.

    • Kudos, but i dont like the gondolian idea, gondolin stuff should be VERY rare and not all trolls had it, high elvish stuff would be better

      But including Glamdring, Orcrist, Glamdring, all the weapons the company found in troll's cave during The Quest of Erebor are Gondolinian Swords. High Elven stuffs are equipment used be current High Elves, they are not from Gondolin the First Age.
