Added DiffLines:

* VerbalTic: Crangolev, one of the Keepers of Trogdor, is described with "She probably ends sentences by going 'yesss?' a lot."


Each of the Keepers has a special power they can use once per turn, and a powerful magic artifact that can be recharged and reused when a specific condition is met. It'll take luck, skill, and teamwork to outwit the meddling peasants who can undo your hard work, and the mighty knights and archers trying to drive off Trogdor, and successfully burninate the countryside, the peasants, and the three thatched-roofed cottages on the board.

Players take on the roles of the Keepers of Trogdor, who guide the infamous wing-a-ling dragon as he rampages through the land of Peasantry. The play field takes the form of 25 land tiles, arranged in a 5x5 square, and players command Trogdor to move, burninate things, devour peasants, and more.

Each of the Keepers has a special power they can use once per turn, and a powerful magic artifact that can be recharged and reused when a specific condition is met. It'll take luck, skill, and teamwork to outwit the meddling peasants who can undo your hard work, and the mighty knights and archers trying to drive off Trogdor, and successfully burninate the countryside, the peasants, and the three thatched-roofed cottages on the board.

!!Tropes:
* DesperationAttack: If Trogdor takes damage when his Trog-meter is empty, this triggers "Trogdor's Firey Rage". Trogdor moves around the board based on five movement cards, burninating everything in his path, and players can win if they manage to complete the game's win conditions by the time Trogdor's Firey Rage ends.
* EliteMook: The Troghammer is a more powerful knight that comes into play when Trogdor first takes damage.
* MythologyGag: There's a lot of references to the other parts of the Homestar Runner franchise in the game:
** One of the artifacts is [[VideoGame/ThyDungeonman "Ye Flask of Dennis"]].
** There are also several references to ''VideoGame/PeasantsQuest'', like the Shield of Cumberdale (named for Ron Cumberdale, whom Rather Dashing might be [[BalefulPolymorph turned into]] if he [[YetAnotherStupidDeath fails the trials of the Trogkeepers]]) and the Super Trinket.
* RespawningEnemies: Peasants can come back under the right conditions.
