Gertrude the Gorgeous (Troll bard D&D 3.5 CR 11)

Gertrude loves to dance, well,  as well as a troll can dance, which is mainly jumping up and down a lot and screaming, but for a troll she is rather good.

As she spent more and more time polishing her jumping dance steps Gertrude began to be able to perform tricks as well as dancing. These tricks also seemed to help the battles her troll band  “Garrank’s  Claw” get involved in. Somehow giving them more courage in their attacks. She could even make her foes fall about in laughter at her dances while the other trolls ripped them apart.

Now her and the troll band have got quite dangerous attacking even heavily armed travelers. Gertrude has collected a bit of loot, a large shiny chain shirt which sparkles with shiny colors when she jumps, and some fancy boots which make her dancing even better.
