A "villain"-biased KYL? About time. Awesome read. Makes you wanna roll an Amani.. Ah, well. Darkspears are trolls, and trolls are awesome.

"Villan" in quotes was certainly appropriate in this case. Trolls of all races are oppressed by everyone else. Their land stolen, their people killed, and in many cases, it's all just for the hell of it. Why'd we go into Zul'Farrak? To get something back from Sergeant Bly? Oh, let's slaughter the trolls in here for fun, too. The Drakkari, while admittedly savage (you kind of have to be in Northrend), were holding their own against the Scourge until we showed up. If you played through Grizzly Hills and DTK prior to Zul'Drak, you are directly responsible for the depths of depravity encountered in the upper tiers of the zone. You allowed the Scourge to break in because you were tricked.Honestly, the only valid incursion into troll lands was to stop the Atal'ai and Gurubashi from summoning Hakkar back into the world.

On the other hand, the Drakkari were noted for their savagery even by the Gurubashi, and the Darkspear were exiled from Stranglethorn for being too barbaric (ironic, considering that they're now the most pacifistic troll tribe). There's also the fact that the trolls have *still*, after ten thousand years, not managed to rebuild their civilizations; the Amani and Gurubashi are scattered tribes feuding with each other, living in wooden huts built within the walls of their ancient stone fortresses and temples. Meanwhile, human civilization didn't even *exist* ten thousand years ago - why don't the trolls have functioning city-states again by now?

Because A) The rest of us keep killing them, B) They keep killing eachother.

A "villain"-biased KYL?i'd say amani point of view =Pwhy don't the trolls have functioning city-states again by now?they used to in northrend, but then after fighting back the scourge the alliance and horde came.as for the gurubashi it had to do with an army of kraken assaulting strangle thorn vale, then infighting for pieces of the empire happen, as for how that can happen look to alexander's ghengis khan's and roman empiresas for amani same as above but humeans and elves instead of krakens

Amani Lawsuit Tossed OutTrolls claimed land ruined, mounts stolenBOOTY BAY - The Eastern Kingdoms 6th District Court dismissed a case brought by the Amani Trolls claiming treasure hunters from the Alliance and Horde have reduced the once-proud kingdom to a joke.Lawyers for Warlord Zul'jin argued unsuccessfully that the Alliance and Horde had spoiled their lands, allowed Elves to torture Zul'aman's citizens, killed their gods and taken their prized bear mounts, leaving the kingdom without means of transportation."How dey expects us to git outta de jungle n' outrun all dis Scourge?" lawyer Dar'ro said.Confusion erupted when the justices of the court viewed the bear mounts could have came from Northrend, citing a case where an adventurer spent four days trying to obtain the mount in Grizzly Hills after his guildmate told him he could land one there by slaughtering certain bears that had salmon in their mouth. The same individual also spent a month farming for a polar bear in Northrend as well, also coming up empty-handed after being told they were a random reward from the Argent Tournament dailies in Icecrown.Lawyers for Zul'jin said it was erroneous information and it was likely the guildie was fibbing.Outside, Darkspear Troll rogue Kanusimi mocked his tribal rivals, and brought his Amani Warbear to the proceedings, giving lawyers for Zul'jin strange gestures."Actually, I haven't brought dis ride out fo' months! I spent a fortune on me mammoth dat came wif' two slaves, and a Brewfest kodo with a baaad base system in da back!" Kanusimi said, doing a handstand on his warbear.Zul'jin, whose lawyers played a recording of him screaming "This was our land! These were our bears!" was said to be recuperating somewhere in Zul'aman. Calls to Zul'aman spokesmen were not returned.In attendance at the hearing was Troll historian and witch doctor Bag'dazarian of the Zandalar Tribe. "Amani bruddas, dey always single-minded, focused on one ting only. Now dey havta multitask dey hate to everyone. Fools should have tied dere bear mounts up bettah anyhow," Bag'dazarian said.Bag'dazarian admitted he was saddened that many great troll mounts have disappeared from the wayside, citing the upcoming closure of Zul'Gurub. "For de past two years, every def knight was overfarmin' dat place, tryin' to git a tiger or raptor," Bag'dazarian said. "Seeing da bears, da Tigers, da raptors lose big every night, depressin' me mon."When asked if Zul'jin and the Amanis may make themselves relevant in the ever-shifting, the old witch doctor laughed and gave the sign of the evil eye. "Oo ee oo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang, laytah!"
