In Zandora Legends the Horde is a term used as a war agreement between the goblinoid races, orcs, tauren, ogres and sometimes trolls. There are three major hordes known to kwondora. The most powerful of these is Horde Zahsok located to the lands south of the Dragonspine Mountains. Second largest is the Iron Horde located in Durtara which brings goblins, orcs and ogres under its banner. Third is the Fell Horde located in The Badlands and recruits trolls and goblinoids from Marshlin. The hordes form factions unto themselves, but are prone to internal wars. The hordes war agreement prevents each other from taking sides during internal conflicts and stopping such conflicts when the need arises to war against the proud people.
