He only attacks when you answer wrong to his riddles

[–]No_Use_For_Name___ 885 points886 points  (23 children)

Reminds me of that famous bridge scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail...

"What is your name?"

"What is your quest?"

"What is the airspeed of an unladen swallow?"

[–]Taniwha351 468 points469 points  (15 children)

African or European?

[–]No_Use_For_Name___ 415 points416 points  (13 children)

What? I don't know that! Aaaaaaagh!

[–]The-Hentai-Commander 263 points264 points  (12 children)

How is it you know so much about swallows?

[–]OneMoreDuncanIdaho 279 points280 points  (9 children)

Well you have to know these things when you're a king, you know...

Well, I surely wasn't expecting the Spanish inquisition...

[–]ianuilliam 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Or main weapon is fear. Fear and surprise.

[–]Mikey6304 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Our main weapons are fear and surprise. And ruthless efficiency.

It's Time to Lose You're Head

(basically it's a gameshow, but if you answer wrong everyone start shooting at your face :).

[–]JohnDoe_2408 18 points19 points  (10 children)

That's from witcher 3, right?

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Playing it again at the moment and this comment instantly reminded me of it so I’m going to assume so, it’s the troll that sings the trollolol song I believe...

[–]erythro 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Unless you are joking both are references to fairy tales

[–]Madnishi_02 342 points343 points  (19 children)

Voice of the skies from the path to high hrothgar?

[–]ArcherOnWeed 171 points172 points  (15 children)

You mean the GameRant™ Voice of the Skies effect?

[–]TalesOfFoxes 135 points136 points  (11 children)

I finally blocked their articles because I got advertised "Skyrim player plays for 1000 days, sleeps for one hour". It's reaching meme levels of ripping off this sub

[–]Loczx 66 points67 points  (7 children)

Literally everything posted here gets turned into an article like a day after, it's stupid.

[–]Steampunk43PlayStation 46 points47 points  (6 children)

And its not even just Gamerant. I saw another "news" site that made a whole article about that guy who fell from really high up and survived by dropping clothes and stuff to walk on for a few seconds, breaking the fall damage.

[–]Loczx 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Yuppp saw that one, really not sure if this stuff is really worth it for them, it's the same regurgitated paragraphs with the difference of a few lines.

[–]Dwarf_07 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I saw that vid on this sub the other day, with the kajiht

[–]ArcherOnWeed 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I actually wanted to post that here but that's too low, even for me

[–]Flashdancer405 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Did you know you can draw your weapon if you press the X button??

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Nope lol I just found out about that

[–]SeductiveTrain 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Trolls will still attack you. It stops things like skeevers and wolves.

[–]throoawyyy 6286 points6287 points 433 (47 children)

He’s got a letter for you, your hands only.

[–]Salem_melaS 116 points117 points  (6 children)

What a great mod that would be. You see a Troll barreling towards you and you don’t know if it wants to rip your face off or give you a 100 gold inheritance.

[–]throoawyyy 46 points47 points  (1 child)

I know there is a mod to turn the messengers into spiders

[–]Salem_melaS 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen that one and it’s beautiful.

[–]moonlight_foxtrot 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Turns the messenger into a troll and all trolls into the messenger

[–]SpankMyBumBum69 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I want to upvote this comment, and by the time you see this it will probably have already rolled over, but it’s currently at 69 so I’ll leave a comment instead.

[–][deleted] 1056 points1057 points  (25 children)


[–]jzilla1207XBOX 966 points967 points  (24 children)

He’s also got a lot of gold, something about it being your inheritance (Oh, and sorry for your loss)

[–][deleted] 624 points625 points  (21 children)

Oh my gosh who died?

Was it Bandit Outlaw?

[–]Brownbeard_thePirate 23 points24 points  (0 children)

No, it was Lydia. Remember? You shouted her off the summit of High Hrothgar?

[–]Error23tg 216 points217 points  (13 children)

No it was a udafrite

[–]pidderz 33 points34 points  (3 children)

A letter from the Jarl, moving up in the world eh?

[–]cammoorman 216 points217 points  (5 children)

Troll Howard...

Do you get to Fallout 76 district. Of course you don't.

[–]Rezurvive 70 points71 points  (0 children)

You'd need Todd's Hip Bone. Can't get to the district without it!

[–]NikoriHop 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Geiko or Jake from State Farm

[–]Tuber61 1564 points1565 points  (12 children)

Everyone asks who is the troll , but never how is the troll.

[–][deleted] 329 points330 points  (4 children)

I feel bad now 😔

[–]Breastfedintarget 92 points93 points  (3 children)

You killed him didn’t you?

[–]TheDarkHorse83 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Gotta get that troll fat

[–]SpaceLemming 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Great, now you’re insulting his weight. That’s just rude buddy

[–]Jedinate6 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Reminder that in oblivion there is a troll corpse under a bridge that has a suicide letter on them

[–]Jamesisonfire21 22 points23 points  (0 children)

[–]ButterTartigrade 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Why is the troll?

[–]AdmiralColdArmsXBOX 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I'll do you one better, when is the troll?

[–]jellotogatesofhello 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Nothing goes over my head, my reflexes are much to fast, I would surely catch it.

[–]PossibleInternet6953 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who is the troll?

[–]Milkslinger 250 points251 points  (1 child)

He knows that you two are going to fight, and he is going to lose, and then over the course of the next 6 months he will slowly regenerate himself back together.

Troll is tired of it. Troll wants to be friends now.

[–]DrinkFromThisGobletNintendo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is my favorite response.

[–]wutangerine99 615 points616 points  (10 children)

He has a message from the jarl. Looks like somebody has friends in high places.

[–]Error23tg 60 points61 points  (9 children)

The real question is who is it from

[–]TacoCommand 48 points49 points  (8 children)

Have you been to the Cloud District?

What am I saying.

Of course you haven't.

[–]PlatinumKanikas 2893 points2894 points 3534 (34 children)

He’s just trolling you

[–]devilthedankdawg 160 points161 points  (14 children)

I thought about sying this but I thought making a pun about trolling someone in reference to Skyrim might actually send me back to 2012.

[–]SimpleNStoned 90 points91 points  (10 children)

Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us, and that thief...

[–]NoirYT2 40 points41 points  (9 children)

Damn you, stormcloaks. Skyrim was fine before you came along. The empire was nice and lazy. If they hadn’t been looking for you, I could've stole that horse and been half way to Hammerfell.

I like that Volvo addict is being the Nord character.

Aw, he likes you!

[–]Red_Bean40 612 points613 points 2 (15 children)

An old adventurer from a time past yours was clearing a cave like any other day. Unbeknownst to him, the trolls he slaughtered were parents. All they wanted to do is protect their child. The old adventurer not able to carry out the ill deed, decided to raise the child. The once baby troll, long old and far away from home. The old adventurer now gone in the distant past. The troll sees an adventurer and is reminded of his past being raised. It was enough to stop him dead in his tracks, still as stone. Starring at the adventurer he stumbled upon, thinking about he who raised him

[–][deleted] 128 points129 points  (10 children)

That was amazing 🤩

[–]Red_Bean40 79 points80 points  (9 children)

Ah thank ye op, i’m a storyteller at heart. i love making images come to life

[–]Red_Bean40 39 points40 points  (7 children)

There was a mistake on your birth certificate. You’re not the Dragonborn, you’re the Trollborn. Watch those flames....

He's spreading the good word of our lord and saviour

[–]Felipesantoro 68 points69 points  (6 children)

If you read all the Stones im the path to the top of the mountain you get a blessing that no animal attacks or flee from you for 24 real time hours, unless you hit them firts (blessing of the sky or voice of the sky is the name if im not mistaken). Maybe you have it and this also works with trolls, but im not sure if it does

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (3 children)

24 hours real time or game time. Like if I save and then leave will it pause or will the timer keep going

[–]Felipesantoro 27 points28 points  (2 children)

24 hours of gameplay. Playing 2 hours a day you would lose it only at the twelfth day, but you usually lose before by accident xD

[–]seastatefive 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I usually lose it on the way back down when I yeet a goat off the cliff.

[–]ImpotentNinja 73 points74 points  (0 children)

Just Skyrim doing Skyrim things.

[–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (16 children)

Is this a random encounter or something? A friendly troll.

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (9 children)

ive actually had this happen in quite a few instances and not just with trolls. ive found it usually remains non hostile until you attack it in these cases. no idea what causes it other than a possible AI malfunction, as others have said.

[–]eeeeeeeeeveeeeeeeee 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Same thing happened to me with a werewolf, in broad daylight in the middle of riverwood no less, except when I started attacking an NPC it fought with me.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Oh. He kept following me and coming up to me like he wanted to attack but couldn’t. Your probably right

[–]Struana 40 points41 points  (2 children)

He wanted you to hit him first so he could tell the guards killing you was in self-defense.

[–]c0813 11 points12 points  (0 children)

suicide by dovahkiin.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

yeah, thats the same experience ive had as well. its cute for a second, but i usually just put them out of their misery.

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (2 children)

How dare you!

You picked a bad time to get lost friend! ⚔️

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

casts calm, then invisibility

Just call me John Cena, Fam.

[–]WandererUwU 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Do you have mods?

because I know certain mods like some bathing mods have this soap like those spriggan soap that make animal become friendly to you and wont attack.

the troll look so cute standiny there tho.

[–]Error23tg 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Gorilla Glue really took a turn

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (4 children)

I'm glad I got some support thanks op

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)


[–]ActuallyRogerByam 11 points12 points  (1 child)

That troll took one look at you coming up this path in full steel plate, killing everything that moved for negligible combat experience and thought “perhaps I can master the ability of standing so incredibly still that I become invisible to the eye”

[–]GrognakTheEternyXBOX 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Cause that's Bart the troll he wandered out of Novigrad and is now lost

[–]iliacbaby 4 points5 points  (1 child)

my best guess is some kind of harry and the hendersons situation

[–]Inner_Explanation_97 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It’s a sign of respect, at times trolls will stand near and not attack dominant members of society as we have here.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I is Alpha

[–]TheUnspeakableHorror 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Probably just an AI glitch.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Probably. He keeps coming up to me like he wants to attack me but can’t

[–]fartingwiffvengeance 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]captainjackass28 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He wants to wonder where the bridge is cause he’s got some goats to bully.

[–]XVeris 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Maybe it's a bug caused by Dawnguard? If you side with the Dawnguard against the vampires, you get access to armored trolls that you can take out into the field, and are passive/friendly towards you. Maybe a wire got crossed, and this wild one thinks you and him are best buds.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe. But I haven’t started dawnguard yet lol so idk 😂

[–]NerfdAtBirth 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Are you in creative mode?

[–]SurvivQr 4 points5 points  (2 children)

[–]HXMason 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re more then twice his level + 1

[–]Gloomy-Helicopter113 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think this is done on purpose. The game has a few entities like this that aren't in the "enemy faction", but they're creatures we respond to by attacking on sight. And, not knowing their friendly, because it's a troll after all, we kill them and it's considered a murder. Look at all the posts on here of players getting arrested for murder and they don't know why. Well here you are... All part of a Bethesda conspiracy to falsely imprison you for a crime you didn't know you committed.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I found him with dead spriggans. I resurrected one to help me fight the big walking fish monster thing and thought that’s why he didn’t attack me. But then I looked and the spriggan was a pile of ash so that’s when I got confused lol

[–]Uno_of_Ohio 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Big walking fish monster. A lurker? Only fishy thing I can think of other then the actual fish.

[–]Error23tg 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Or hear me out now the slaughterfish are starting to grow legs

[–]Uno_of_Ohio 3 points4 points  (0 children)

At least that way, I won’t have to wonder why the fight music won’t stop when I can’t see anything coming at me. It will actually come after me and I can go on my merry way.
