Derakon is on a distinguished road
It seems to me that a half-troll mage would basically play like a ranger with faster spell gain in the early game; thus, being able to reliably cast spells wouldn't be your top priority anyway. Later on of course your INT problems can be fixed, or at least ameliorated, with the proper gear / statgain potions, and it's there that the half-troll's racial stats shine, since, once you achieve perfect casting, there's little point in better INT (so traditional caster races find themselves with a surfeit), but more CON is almost always useful (and traditional caster classes tend to be paupers here).
