Scrags (also known as marine trolls,[5] aquatic trolls,[6] sea scrags,[7] and sea trolls[7]) were an aquatic version of troll. There were two varieties: freshwater trolls and saltwater trolls.[5]

NomenclatureEdit

"Scrag," "aquatic troll," and "marine troll" could refer to any troll that lived in water.[5] However, "scrag" often referred specifically to a freshwater troll, also called a "river troll." In that case, a saltwater troll was called a "marine scrag."[4]

DescriptionEdit

A scrag is a marine troll, a gilled form of the common troll. A scrag is found in a large body of water, as it needs considerable room to hunt. The coloration of a scrag runs from blue-green to olive, and its forelimbs are shorter and weaker than ordinary trolls. The freshwater scrag is smaller than a normal troll and has heavy scales and less formidable claws, but its enlarged lower jaw bears many small, very sharp fangs. The saltwater scrag is found in seas and oceans, and is at least as large as an ordinary troll. A saltwater scrag has thick and heavily scaled skin, and some of them are intelligent enough to further protect themselves with armor made of shells and sharkskin or similar substances. A saltwater scrag's forelimbs are shorter and weaker than those of an ordinary troll, but it has developed a huge maw and numerous fangs. A scrag regenerates as a troll does, but only when in immersed in water of its natural element.[5]

AbilitiesEdit

Scrags could only regenerate when in water: Freshwater scrags had to be in freshwater, and saltwater scrags had to be in saltwater.[5]

LocationsEdit

Scrags were found in the Mortick Swamp in Luiren.[8] They could also be found in the Mere of Dead Men in the Sword Coast North[9] and in the Moonsea[10] (where known large colonies resided near Hulburg,[7][11] and the island of Maos[12]).

In the Underdark, scrags were found in the Darklake[13][14] and in the Shape of Water in the Glimmersea.[15]
