For anyone looking to make a theme for their army or just a quick means of creating lore for their grots and troggoths.

Army Demographics[edit]

What is the horde mostly composed of? (d20)
(1-4) Moonclan Grots: The wily, mushroom harvesting, lackeys of the Bad Moon. They travel in masses of Stabbas and Shootas and rely on their Shamans to channel the powers of fungi and their lunar god.
(5-8) Spiderfang Grots: Crawling from their temporary realmgates, the devotees of the Spider God use all forms of creepy crawlies from hulking Arachnaroks to the speedy Spider Riders.
(9-12) Squigs: Though this tribe does have a few Grots that serve as handlers, it is the bulbous, belligerent, biting balls known as Squigs that populate this tribe the most.
(13-16) Troggoths: In the deepest, dankest parts of the realms, the surly and violent Troggoths are always looking for some fresh meat, often accompanied by their drinking buddies, the Gargants.
(17-20) Hodgepodge: The warlord of this tribe was able to bring together multiple aspects of the Gloomspite Gitz under his command. Re-roll twice, and add another faction if landing on 17-20.


What is the size of the horde? (d3)
(1) Underwhelming: Maybe they splintered off from some other bigger horde or are a new horde taking form, this group is quite small and unassuming. But they say never judge others based on size.
(2) Warband: An average sized army. The leader(s) of this horde have done good enough to garner a decent following. They won’t be beating any number contests, but they’re certainly a worthy force.
(3) Superpower: Through any number of means, be it underhanded or no, this horde has risen to become a realm renowned kingdom of gitz. No one will think lightly before challenging this horde.

Location and Habitat[edit]

In what Realm does the tribe live? (d10)
(1) Azyr, Realm of Heaven
(2) Ulgu, Realm of Shadow
(3) Shyish, Realm of Death
(4) Aqshy, Realm of Fire
(5-6) Ghur, Realm of Beasts
(7) Hysh, Realm of Light
(8-9) Chamon, Realm of Metal
(10) Ghyran, Realm of Life


What is the horde’s lurklair situated in? (d10)
(1) Mountainous Tunnels: Having burrowed into the side of a craggy mountain, this horde has a good view of where their next raid will be and when the Bad Moon will rise.
(2) Swampy Dwellings: This horde has made their home amidst the mud and muck of a putrid marsh. When they’re not attacking hapless enemies, they’re mending their lairs to prevent flooding.
(3-4) Forest Caves: Hidden away in the woods is an unassuming hole, and from the hole does this horde strike. Simple and straight forward. Expect opposition from Sylvaneth.
(5) Valley of Da Moon: The eerie light of the Bad Moon fills a cavernous ravine with gloomspite energy. The hordes crawl out of the valleys like a mass of insects ready to feast.
(6) Ruined Village: The horde has conquered some other faction’s base and have since taken a liking to its placement. Sure it needs some redecorating but it will serve as perfect home base. Maybe it even has a fortress for the boss!
(7-8) Under-Home: Deep beneath the earth lies a colony built from anything and everything the horde could find. Its size can vary from a tiny hamlet to a massive metropolis.
(9-10) Moonward Bound: Following the Bad Moon is the horde’s only concern. They don’t have time to settle down and make a base when there is so much mayhem to inflict!

Behaviors[edit]

How often do they go on raids? (d4)
(1) Once in a Bad Moon: Highly superstitious, this horde will only step out of their dwellings when the Bad Moon has arrived.
(2) Preemptive Sneaks: Through various means, the horde can sense when the Bad Moon will rise and thus plan their raids just before their lunar god arrives.
(3) Twitchy Loons: When they ain’t raiding, this horde is a jittery and impatient lot. They’re always ready to go on the attack, Bad Moon or no.
(4) Constant Raiders: They never stop. Jumping from one village to the next this horde has an obsession with getting into a scrap, hoping to attract the Bad Moon with all the mindless havoc they inflict.

(1) He’s crazy, and not in da good way!
