For other uses, see Trolls.

A Troll is a creature found in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. They are commonly found in the Blackwood forest in particular, but are also fairly common all along the Niben River, the Nibenay Basin, and the Nibenay Valley. Generally, they are more common the farther south along the Niben. They can also be encountered on occasion in the Heartlands and the Great Forest.
