They have so many names, these things that come from across the half worlds.  The Vormusri Horde are demonic horrors and fragments of beings from Old Earth, mutated survivors and warriors from the Outer Darkness that come to the edges of Hyperborea and Accursed Terra to claim their victims and vanish back into the starless night. They are monsters of depravity and horrid darkness who live on worlds under a damned and hellish skies.

The strange mutated horrors of the Vomusri Horde are semi demonic creatures of the damned and have many of the same weaknesses common to minor daemons and their kin. ( see the AS&SH Refree's Book pages 25 - 31 for Daemons and their kin). These horrors are often brought to the edges of reality by strange other dimensional ill winds from the Outer Darkness and vanish with them as quickly back to the Outer Darkness . They wield a wide variety of minor enchanted weapons capable of slaying and harming other magical  creatures. There are hundreds of tribes of these horrors and all capable of violence, bloodshed, and depravity of the worst kind. Legends of their origins abound.

The Vormusri Horde are vulnerable  to many of the high tech or semi mystical devices of Atlantian manufacture. They will attack those wielding these weapons with a particular zeal and marked violence. There is speculation among certain scholars that the horde may have actually originated as a strain of a demonic cult in ancient Atlantis on Old Earth and during the destruction of Atlantis ; the worshipers gave themselves over to the powers of the Outer Darkness. Through the eons the survivors of other realms and worlds have given themselves to this twisted horrid existence and the cult continues down through the ages.

The Vormusri Horde often sack and raid communities claiming the souls and minds of their victims. These are bargained with other demonic and Hellish powers in exchange for favors, magical and semi sorcery weapons, and even the locations of hidden caches of magical knowledge. The horde serves no particular master and often act as mercenaries for Lovecraftian demonic lords and rival gods. They are unpredictable and very dangerous in the extreme.
