Runes along the length of this powerful blade spell ""death to trolls"" in multiple languages. A green gem set in the weapon's hilt glows with a pale green light. Legend tells that the famous dwarf Durlag Trollkiller used this sword in his adventuring days, but lost it during a particularly brutal fight in the Troll Hills.

Despite the item's name, it does not actually decapitate trolls. A rumor sprung up regarding its powers and despite evidence to the contrary, the sword has never shaken the nickname.
