The Undead Horde 2021 Organization in Game of Tomes | World Anvil

The Undead Horde 2021

  The Undead Horde is a military force of Tome Knights who have been unwillingly recruited by the Night Monarch and their minions. In 2021, they were led by the Nite Monarq AuthorGoddess.


The Undead Horde is an absolute monarchy, ruled by the Night Monarch with an iron fist. However, whenever a Night Monarch is defeated, the new Night Monarch is nominated by popular support, and confirmed by simple vote. In many ways, it is much more democratic than any of the Lesser or Greater Houses.   Defeated Night Monarchs maintain some popular influence within the Horde, however, and council the current Night Monarch on affairs of state.


When a new Undead is welcomed into the fold, they are, by tradition, given a name by the reigning Night Monarch to represent their new status. This is often wordplay on their living name. The Undead also refuse to be bound by "living-supremacist spelling conventions."   Undead revel in being villains. They exist to defeat the living, and if anything, they write harder than they did as living Tome Knights However, their villainy does not extend to each other. Their democratic structure makes them fiercely loyal, and their thralldom to the Night Monarch assures that unlike in the living Houses, there is never any betrayal.   Some Undead, however, miss their living House of origin and long to return to them. They will still act upon their sinister impulses -- to eat the brains and blood of living Tome Knights, and devour their word-magic -- but therein lies the tragedy. It is not uncommon for Undead to apologize even as they are feeding.

Public Agenda

The Undead seek to destroy the living through their Literomancy and take The Iron Tome for themselves. Nobody knows what will happen if they get their greyish hands on it. No one wants to know.


The Undead Horde first made its appearance in the First Word War of 2020, the Year of the Plague. Their first leader was the Nite Qing Erin Righ. They were ultimately defeated by the living, but not without a brutal fight. Upon their defeat, the Undead were all restored to life, and the Nite Qing joined House Chiroptera as its general.   Prior to the Second Word War, Erin Righ disappeared. He was later confirmed to have returned to the Undead Horde, and was a significant player in hierarchy.
