Gruumsh is a war god through and through; all he cares about is battle. He drives the orcs onto conquest, not for recources, territory, or even power; these are fringe benefits, but to Gruumsh war is an end unto itself. He does not tolerate weakness, and considers a lack of bloodlust to be a weakness. While most evil deities excercise direct control over their followers, few of them have as strong a grasp over a culture than Gruumsh has over the orcs (except, perhaps, for Lolth over the drow). Very few orcs who demonstrate a reluctance to fight, pillage, and kill survive into adulthood; orc culture is a strict theocracy and their god insists that such “failed” orcs be destroyed as children, before they can “pollute” the bloodline.
