Thar’gul commands counless boyz, but some of the smaller greenskins, collectively referred to as Grots, have a closer link to him than the rest. These are his Runtz, his personal slaves and pets, spawned from his own spores.
The Ork is constantly followed by slaves and pets, some of which may even have been spawned from the spores he sheds. The Ork has a number of Runts in his impromptu entourage equal to the number of times he has taken this talent. These may be Attack Squigs, Gretchin, or Snotlings, in any combination. Snotlings, due to their lack of size and general uselessness, count as half a Runt for the purposes of this talent. Should any of the Ork’s Runts die due to battle or simple mistreatment (more than a few Gretchin have died due to being accidentally sat on by their masters, or from injuries suffered when kicked a little too hard), a new one will take its place, at the next opportunity the GM deems appropriate (such as the next time you’re on a planet’s surface for more than a few hours). An Ork’s Runts will follow its commands, often under the threat of being kicked by the Ork, and as Greenskins are subject to the Might Makes Right rule.
