Trolls attack. large raiding party, 20 trolls but only four are warriors. If someone talks to them, you discover that the trolls are going hungry – a great disease has struck their woods and they cannot eat the vegetation. They will accept a promise to bring aid from one of the Humakti. They will attack until they suffer 50% losses.
Tuskriders usually raid farms for food for winter now. But all the food has already been taken by the troll raiders. So the riders have demanded food from the town ring.
