The Troll King Questline kicks off the first time you collect from Thurston's Fort. The Troll Tribe Questline cannot begin until this questline is completed.

Thurston will explain that all great leaders need great weapons, and ask if you will be willing to forge Excalibam. (He explains that all great weapons need their own names, thus why it isn't called Excalibur).

This requires Forging Excalibam, but when you go to do that, it turns out that you can't. It requires Mithril. Old Thomas sends you on the Adventure: Explore Dark Caves to get some.
