All D&D trolls are male?

Just struck me: all D&D trolls are male?

I can't remember a single female troll image at this moment...

Who needs sexual procreation if it can reproduce by budding?

Given the trollish regeneration capabilities, it would sort of fit that they just bud off new baby trolls.

Cheers, LT.

Trolls don't have obvious sexual characteristics, but they do have gender. In fact, according to 2nd edition lore, she-trolls are the leaders of troll groups. Heck, back in 2e, I had a female troll evoker as a BBEG (part of a BBE party, actually!).

Yeah, I have always run D&D trolls as matriarchal with one uber-strong female ruling a tribe of males. So, while you most often encounter males, the females are the ones to be REALLY scared of.

Good to know, troll mamas on the way on my games...

BTW, about troll boobs: World of Warcraft's female trolls are lovely ;)

Thanks for making me spend a small part of my workday trying recall if there were illustrations of troll weenie in any edition of the Monster Manual.
