Shouldn't it be changed to "Sand troll" and "Sandfury tribe"? It says in the Troll Compendium that there is a category called Sand trolls, and that the Sandfury tribe is one of the known tribes. This is important especially with the Dark troll getting its own page when there is only one tribe known, and the Troll Compendium saying Dark troll is seen as a fifth category by only some authorities.  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 06:33, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

At one point not terribly long ago, it was set up like that. It was changed as some lore suggested that since the sandfury tribe was the only known tribe of sand trolls, that sandfury was as good a racial designation as anything. Presumabely there are other races of dark trolls, but its a lot easier to hide in dense forest than it is in open desert.Tweak the Whacked (talk) 07:06, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Its a publishing history thing too, to start out it was the "Desert trolls", then it became "sand trolls" in the Compendium, and then Monster Guide which was published later reduced it to "Sandfury trolls" since it was the only clan. The most recent info for dark trolls is the troll compendium in constrast.Baggins (talk) 07:23, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
