Tuskgor Chariot

Tuskgor Chariots are ramshackle contraptions utilised by the Brayherds. They are built from heavy pieces of lumber and iron scrounged from the ruins of despoiled cities, and bound with tattered leather straps or the sinews of slain monstrosities, and held together with crudely shorn crossbeams. Each chariot is latched to a Tuskgor, being seen as somewhat odd amongst the Beastherds but also being respected. [1a]

Creation

Creating a Tuskgor Chariot requires a degree of discipline that is unnatural to most Beastmen. A Bestigor may see the devastation wrought by the war engines of their enemies, and be inspired by visions of barbaric grandeur, setting off to develop their own chariot. [1a]

The Bestigor sets off to hunt the tuskgors, spending long days chasing the creatures until they are caught. Many a Bestigor is killed by their would be quarry being devouredt. The strongest and most indomitable manage to corner and subdue a pair of tuskgors to serve their ambitions. [1a]

The fabrication of the chariot itself is achieved through a series of threats, coercion, and bullying. The Ungors undertake the back-breaking labor of assembling the contraption, whilst the Gors condition the Tuskgor to respond to violent stimuli. The surviving Gors are allowed to drive the chariot, whilst the Ungor s are simply haunted for sport. [1a]

Wargear

The Gor driver uses a whip and spear, lashing and prodding the tuskgors onwards whilst the Bestigor at the chariot’s rear holds aloft a great axe. [1a]
