Troq Bashar, Well-Meaning Beast
"Troq is big and smashes well. You seem pretty smart, though."
Troq is big and strong and likes to SMASH.
Troq has a good heart and he means well. He's not the sharpest guy though, so he gets confused sometimes. He likes having smart friends so his brawn and their brains can team up to do some smashing, which Troq really enjoys.
Troq comes from the Golden Plains, and like many regions these days, the area is in an economic slump due to Flagstone's mining and resource collection operations. This led Troq to seek his fortune elsewhere. Troq isn't exactly the most loyal beast, so wherever he can find the best deal is where he'll go. For the moment, that's as a Flagstone footsoldier but Zane will eventually lure him away with bribes of Giant Growth potions. Troq loves to be big and strong.

Q: Are Troq's blocks "normal blocks" (for purposes of Relentless Strikes)?
A: Yes. Special blocks are named, like Rook's Stone Wall, Argagarg's Bubble Shield, or Gwen's Gloria's Remedy. Troq's blocks are all normal blocks.
Q: When Gwen attacks my block, then uses Relentless Strikes to force me to discard my block card, can I still attach it to my character card?
A: No. Your block card is discarded.
Q: When Troq's K throw beats a normal attack, who "wins combat"? (Long Range, Overdose, Carrion Reach)
A: Troq wins combat. To "beat" a normal attack counts as winning combat, even if you take damage from the attack. This means that Long Range, Overdose, Carrion Reach cannot trigger in that situation.
Q: Does Lockhorn Skewer win against a normal attack that's normally slower than speed 5.0, but has been sped up to be speed 5.0 or faster through an ability? (Burst of Speed, Long Range, Meaty Attacks)
