"The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land..."

Troll Country is the second tier zone for the Raven Host army located to the south of the Chaos Wastes, north of Kislev. The region has a cold climate, and is usually shrouded in heavy fog; its frosty bogs in the south and snow tipped mountains in the north. A large glacier runs through the center of the zone. Troll Country is under attack from those Empire forces who have come this far north to repel the invaders.
The landscape of Troll Country is dead, harsh and cold. Mountain-like giant blocks of stone that sprout up through the ground create vicious pits and valleys which an unwary traveller can easily fall into, and dark bogs and swamps dominate the cold wet landscape, to the north the land becomes even colder and in the long winters of Troll Country, many water sources freeze solid for months on end, it is only the wet, misty climate of Troll Country that saves it from becoming an Arctic tundra. The only vegetation that survives the harsh conditions is moss and lichen on the rocks that cover the ground, and in the south of Troll Country, some stunted trees and shrubs struggle for sunlight in the choking fog.
The inhabitants of these harsh lands are, as the name suggests, Trolls: aggressive creatures who live in the caves of the highland slopes and the cold arctic bogs. While the Trolls are just Trolls, in the northern parts of the lands the Chaos Trolls are lurking. These abominable creatures have been exposed to the mutating forces of the Realm of Chaos for a long time, giving the Chaos Trolls mutations and unnatural powers.
The Empire nobleman Lord Anton Jaeger who lived long ago was the man whose story tells the importance of these lands to the Age of Reckoning. Lord Jaeger proposed to Leticia Gaertner, second cousin of the Elector Count of Ostland, trying to increase his standing. She turned down his proposal in front of the entire court. Lord Jaeger's pride was totally crushed when he returned to his lands. The shame was weighing him down so much so that he decided to command his big family and their servants to pack up and leave for a long journey. Over one hundred men, women and children of the Empire left their homes and went north.
Upon reaching a point far north of the Empire's borders, Lord Jaeger halted and ordered the construction of a new town, which he named Felde. Today, Felde is not only the ruins of a long gone town, but also where the terrible plague that is haunting the Empire first surfaced.
Troll Country in the Age of ReckoningEdit
In the Age of Reckoning, the Empire's Order of the Griffon is trying to uncover the mystery of the plague, while Warlord Tchar'zanek, leader of the Raven Host, is trying to keep the Empire from revealing the secrets and the story of the plague's creation. Rumors about an ancient artifact of great power that is supposed to be hidden in these lands have reached Tchar'zanek which gives the Raven Host a more sinister purpose of their foray into Troll Country.
