Origin Theories

The origin of the Bad Moon remains a mystery but there are several major origin myths among the grots.

  • The Moonclan Grots have a myth that says once Gorkamorka was on a rampage throughout the Mortal Realms gobbling mountains and oceans. One night he saw the biggest moon and climbed on the sky to eat. But the moon was too tough and the greenskin god broke their tusks on it. These teeth fell on the realms and became mountains which the Moonclan would come to inhabit while leaving some his power in the moon. Since then the greenskins have known it has the Bad Moon and forbidden from eating it.[1][2]
  • The Spiderfang Grots believe its the egg of the Spider God and believe that one day the egg will crack and cover all the realms in spiders.[2]
  • Shamans believe the moon is a result of the spirits of every grot wizard ever lived being bashed together in the sky.[2]
