False Appearance. While the troll remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a pile of rocks.
Regeneration. The rock troll regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn. If the troll takes psychic or poison damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the troll’s next turn. The troll dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.
Multiattack. The troll makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) piercing damage.
Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) slashing damage.
Rock. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 60/240 ft., one target. Hit: 21 (3d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage.
With a stone-like hide and jagged rocks for teeth and claws, rock trolls have the appearance of the minerals that are their primary diet. Although they are typically less violent than their carnivorous cousins, rock trolls take offense easily and have long memories. An angry rock troll will wait centuries to take revenge on a perceived enemy.
Despite their appearance, rock trolls are not earth elementals. However, they share a mysterious connection to the elemental plane. Rock trolls speak Terran, often befriend earth elementals, and have a tendency to build intricate stacked rock spirals and symbols. Their remarkable building skills have been utilized by other races on a few occasions, but this seldom turns out well due to the rock trolls’ temperament.
