Going back to the beginning post.
It is interesting that the the scroll of colours was written by elves, so I wonder how much author bias there is regarding the troll issues?
The first thing that comes to mind is the portrayl of the trolls rebellion. It seems from the flash backs in 1 and the scroll of colours that the trolls were entirly unreasonable, yet they did consider themselves slaves, so did they ever ask to be freed? and what would the high ones raction have been to that? because if they did consider the trolls as lesser being then they may not have taken them seriously, leaving the rebellion and the crash of the palace as the trolls only option... interesting :twisted:
