LOTRO: Cave Troll



A cave troll of Moria.

This is the only description in the book about them:

"There was a blow on the door that made it quiver; and then it began to grind slowly open, driving back the wedges. A huge arm and shoulder, with a dark skin of greenish scales, was thrust through the widening gap. Then a great, flat, toeless foot was forced through below. There was a dead silence outside."

Round, toeless feet are better at bearing the weight of a giant than human feet are. I wonder if tolkien looked at the anatomy of rhinos, hippos and elephants to understand why a troll would need different feet to us.
