DIY 30 Day 1

This 30 days of DIY RPG thing was posted, and it looked like fun, so I'm doing it.

1. What is a heretofore unknown secret of Troll ecology?(Beware, poorly thought out pseudoscience below)

It is widely known that trolls turn into stone when exposed to sunlight. What is not known is that this process is caused by a strain of strange algae that has a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with their troll host. Curiously, this algae somehow gains energy from the absence of light, and this seemingly impossible power helps fuel trolls' regenerative process.

Large amounts of UV light cause a chemical reaction in these bizarre organisms, rapidly transforming the carbon inside their cells into silicon. This process releases extreme amounts of energy, which is what kills the troll, and is why trolls' stony corpses seem to steam after the reaction takes place. Trolls were originally a relatively normal subspecies of giant, but at some point they were joined with this darkness powered algae. Some claim it was a purely process of evolution, that just happens to have occurred only in trolls, while others believe that they are the creation of a mad sorcerer.
