|There’s always the Pig.
Only the most skilled warriors can become Wolves. It takes a particular genius to be initiated into the Serpent, great strength to become a Bull or Boar, nobility to be a Stag and so forth. Not everyone has such qualities. For all the average thugs and marauders of Granbretan, there’s always the Pig.
The Order of the Pig are not the best soldiers or warriors but what they lack in talent they more than make up for in sheer numbers. Tens of thousands of Pig axemen march in lock-step across Europe; the guttural thunder of their massed war-cries shakes the heavens. Pigs are cannon fodder and they know it. There are few problems that cannot be solved by hurling a million ill-tempered and brutish axe-men at it and in the Order of the Pig, the Empire has unlimited manpower.
