The Ogor Mawtribes are the vast nomadic hosts of Ogorkind. They are living embodiments of Gorkamorka - who they refer to as the Gulping God - and his voracious hunger. When they march to war, the ground shakes beneath them, a rolling avalanche of unwashed skin. By stuffing their gaping mouths with raw meat and offal, they give thanks to their ravenous deity. [1a]

Organization

The Ogor Mawtribes are consist of two very different cultures united only by their worship of Gorkamorka and their ceaseless quest for meat. These are the Gutbusters who make up the majority of Ogors and the Beastclaw Raiders that ride upon massive beats trying to run away from a magical blizzard known as the Everwinter. When not raiding for food, these two cultures regularly clash for domination. Usually a Mawtribe is dominated by one culture but nearly every Mawtribe contains a number of Warglutts of the Gutbusters and Beastclaw Raider Alfrostuns.[1a]

Most Mawtribes are dominated by the Gutbuster way of life and are ruled by the near-mythical Overtyrants, gigantic and towering warrior-emperors. Mawtribes dominated Beastclaw Raiders are ruled by Frost Kings who are said to be vested with the icy power of the Everwinter itself.[1a]

Mawpath

A Mawpath is a migratory route of a Mawtribe guided by the magic of the Butchers who can read the eternal hunger of Gorkamorka and find the direction of the greatest quantities of fresh meat. Mawpaths are usually a circular journey consisting of leaving their lair and chewing a great bite out of the realm before returning to their homeland for a gluttonous feast and traveling further and further with each successive raid in order to find new sources of food. At the end of its migratory conquests, a Mawtribe returns to its ancient Glutthold with vast hauls of flesh and gore which is poured into immense bubbling cauldrons and ogors feast, fight and give praise to the Gulping God in a great celebration of virility that births the next generation of ogors. The sheer power of the feast allows the Mawtribe’s Butchers to channel the power to tear open the feasting pits, creating a magical portal from the piles of coagulated gore. Thus the Mawtribe embarks upon a fresh Mawpath through the portals towards fresh feeding grounds.[1a]
