But this time when the Troll got to the village and his presents there was a surprise. And not a good surprise. This time the villagers had hired seven stout men to kill the Troll and free the village. So when the Troll showed up they sprang the trap and charge him from all over.
This irritated the Troll as he believed that tradition must be respected. He grabbed his large hammer and charged the closest warrior near him.
Who promptly stabbed the Troll with his great sword. "I have killed the Troll," he shouted. And everyone rejoiced. Except for the Troll.
And he would have killed the Troll becasue he was Obviously Dead. But you see, Trolls are Hard as Nails and when you kill him the first time, well, they don't die. Instead they get back up and fight. And he did.
The warriors charged and swung their great swords pushing the Troll back.
Except the Troll swung his large hammer and when he did a warrior went squish.
Squish! Squish! And now there were three. But these three were mighty men of Reputation 5! And they attacked the Troll with vigor and drove him back again and again.
Their swords cut and stabbed but the Troll was Massive and their weapons had little Impact.
They were brave and fought well, never running. But they were not Stars. So when the Troll swung his large hammer three times... Squish! Squish! Squish!
The Troll killed all the warriors and tradition was saved.
