Halikiv troll victories east of the Rockwoods, 1302-03?


Recommended Posts

The Second Wane map in The Glorantha Sourcebook (p. 165) depicts a troll incursion from Halikiv over (well, under, one imagines) the Rockwoods, with battles in Aggar (1302) and Skanthiland (1303), presumably both victories as the movement continues, through Talastar and to Dara-Ni.  Do we know what was going on here? Are the names and happenstances of the battles known?

Trollpak p.30: "Halikiv expanded its borders in all directions for a time, expanding over the mountains which were impassable to men and difficult even for trolls. Hunting parties regularly swept through the spruce woods south of the Mislari Mountains, harassing elves who lived there. They also raided the humans of the Aggar region so continually that it was nearly abandoned by them. Corolaland, west of Halikiv, had long been a good hunting ground for trolls, and during the years preceding 1350 was densely populated by them."

Guide p.331: "Troll warbands from Halikiv are not unknown; around 1300, a troll warlord led a great army over the impassable Rockwood Mountains and nearly depopulated Aggar."

Guide p.334: "Billiz...There is an extinguished Sun Dome Temple in these hills, a casualty of an alliance between the Halikiv trolls and Orlanthi rebels." - not explicit, but seems it could have been the first battle."

And that's about all I can find.

It’s fairly close to the battle site - not the same spot exactly, but close enough.
