EX. First I heard the beasts throaty and guttural call. I looked ahead of me on the Throat of the World and saw a terrifying silhouette against the snow. At first, I thought it was a Yeti or am Abominable Snowman. It leaped down from the ledge it was standing on and charged me full force. I threw fireballs at the beast until it was felled. It wasn't until after I could get a good luck at its smouldering corpse that I realized it was merely a frost troll.
