Advancement by character class;

Improbable Command (Su): Allies with the chaotic subtype, gain full control over any rage effects upon them and may ignore any penalties they impose, while they are able to see and hear the gaunt troll within 120 feet.
Last Stand (Ex): While a gaunt troll's hit point total is less than 5 times its Hit Dice, it gains a +8 morale bonus to Strength and an immunity to involuntary mind-affecting effects, removing those in effect upon the gaunt troll itself.
Gangly Arms (Ex): The natural reach of a gaunt troll in its true form, equals that of a creature one size larger than its actual size. A colossal gaunt troll has a natural reach of 40 ft. The natural reach of its bite attack however, remains unaffected.
Pounce (Ex): A gaunt troll can make a full attack at the end of a charge, but only the first attack made gains the benefits associated with charging.
Rend (Ex): If a gaunt troll hits the same creature with both claw attacks, it latches on and tears the flesh, This automatically deals the base damage of both claws, plus 1-1/2 times its Str bonus. A given creature can only suffer this damage once per round.
Regeneration (Ex): In addition to fire, lawful weapons and effects deal normal damage to a gaunt troll. If a gaunt troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 5d6 rounds. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.
Reaving Strikes (Ex): A gaunt troll's natural weapons and unarmed strikes overcome all forms of damage reduction based on a metallic material.
Magic Chaos Strike (Su): A gaunt troll's natural weapons and unarmed strikes are considered epic and chaotic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Frightful Presence (Ex): A gaunt troll can unsettle foes with its mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever the gaunt troll attacks or charges. Enemies that can see the gaunt troll within 80 feet are subject to the effect if they have fewer HD than the gaunt troll. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 44) remains immune to that troll’s frightful presence for 24 hours. On a failure, creatures with 4 or less HD become frightened for 5d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 5d6 rounds.
Improved Grab (Ex): If a gaunt troll hits with a claw or bite attack, it deals normal damage and may attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. No initial touch attack is required.
    This works only against opponents at least one size category smaller than the gaunt troll. The gaunt troll has the option to conduct the grapple normally, or simply use the part of its body it used in the improved grab to hold the opponent. If it chooses to do the latter, it takes a no penalty on grapple checks (due to feats) , but is not considered grappled itself; the gaunt troll does not lose its Dexterity bonus to AC, still threatens an area, and can use its remaining attacks against other opponents.
    Each successful grapple check it makes during successive rounds automatically deals the damage indicated for the attack that established the hold. When the gaunt troll gets a hold after an improved grab attack, it pulls the opponent into its space. This act does not provoke attacks of opportunity. It can even move (possibly carrying away the opponent), provided it can drag the opponent’s weight.
Swallow Whole (Ex): If a gaunt troll begins its turn with an opponent held in its mouth (see Improved Grab), it can attempt a new grapple check (as though attempting to pin the opponent). If it succeeds, it swallows its prey, and the opponent takes bite damage. The opponent must be at least two size categories smaller than the gaunt troll.
    Once inside, the opponent takes 3d6+25 points of crushing damage plus 25 points of acid damage per round from the gaunt troll’s gizzard. It must also hold its breath while inside or suffocate. A swallowed creature is considered to be grappled, while the gaunt troll is not. A swallowed creature can try to cut its way free with any light slashing or piercing weapon by dealing 150 damage to the gizzard (AC 10 + 1/2 the gaunt troll's natural armor bonus) against which the gaunt troll's damage reduction applies, or it can just try to escape the grapple. If a swallowed creature cuts its way out, muscular action closes the hole, and another swallowed creature must cut its own way out. If a swallowed creature escapes the grapple, success puts it back in the gaunt troll’s mouth, where it may be bitten or swallowed again. A gaunt troll's interior can hold 2 Huge, 8 Large, 32 Medium, 128 Small, 512 Tiny or 2,048 Diminutive or smaller creatures.
Trample (Ex): As a full-round action, a gaunt troll can move up to twice its speed and literally run over any opponents at least one size category smaller than itself. It merely has to move over the opponents in its path; any creature whose space is completely covered by the gaunt troll's space is subject to the trample attack. If a target’s space is larger than 5 feet, it is only considered trampled if the gaunt troll moves over all the squares it occupies. If the gaunt troll moves over only some of a target’s space, the target can make an attack of opportunity against it at a -4 penalty. A gaunt troll that accidentally ends this movement in an illegal space returns to the last legal position it occupied, or the closest legal position, if there’s a legal position that’s closer.
    This attack deals bludgeoning damage to each trampled target, equal to 3d6 + 1-1/2 times the gaunt troll's strength modifier. Trampled opponents can attempt attacks of opportunity, but these take a -4 penalty. If they do not make attacks of opportunity, trampled opponents can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage.
    The save DC against a gaunt troll’s trample attack is strength-based (DC 60 half). A gaunt troll can only deal trampling damage to a given creature once per round, no matter how many times its movement takes it over that creature.

Note A constant spell-like ability has no use limit; unless otherwise stated, a creature can only use a constant spell-like ability on itself. Dismissing or reactivating a constant spell-like ability is a swift action
Note In some cases where this creature would have been entitled to an epic feat, two non-epic feats were chosen to replace it.
