WAAAGH!ism or Orkism is the socialital structure followed by the the group of fungal-based species collectivlly known as Greenskins, or more commonly just Orks from universes Warhammer 40 000 and Warhammer: Fantasy battle. Ork are a species, created solely for the purpose of waging war and their society is built around it.
At the bottom of greenskin hierarchy is a vast group of species known as as squigs. Squigs are animal-like creatures who can serve many purposes from producing food, or being used as a steed to being used as a musical instrument (Squig pipe) or even a wig (Hair squig)
Snotlings are the slaves of greenskin society, their sole purpose is to take care of squigs and produce weapons, vehicles and other accesories needed.
Gretchins are very similiar to snotlings, but are ussualy a little big bigger and smarter, why they are also being used as slaves, they can sometimes even be used as soldiers or mechanics and assistants because of their intelligence
Or "The Boyz" as reffered to in ork slang, are the most prominent species in the greenskin group, they are being bred for war and follow a very simple philosophy: Might makes right. In ork society it is the biggest, strongest, meanest and most cunning ork who is the leader. A form of "nobility" also exists among orks known as "the nobs". The position of the warboss can be challanged by any ork, and should the warboss be deafeated, the victorious challanger becomes the next boss. Orks grow smarter, bigger and more agressive as they fight and slowly become weaker when they dont.
Oddboyz are a group of orks born with certain abilities such as knowledge of mechanics (mekboyz), knowledge of ork biology (painboyz) or psychic powers (Weirdboyz).
Ork economy revolves around ork teeth, reffered to as "Teef" which is being used as currency. Orks often change their teeth and use it as a currency afterwards. Ork teeth decay fast, preventing inflation and teef hoarding and forcing orks to spend their teef as fast as they can. It also supports violent nature of the orks as it is completly acceptable to beat up another ork and take his teef directly from the source. Because teef grows on every ork, it is impossible for an ork to fall into poverty.
Should an ork warboss achieve a string of victories and crush all the challangers and opposition, a WAAAGH! is declared. Part migration, part a military operation, orks attack anyone nearby amassing strength and numbers as other ork tribes join them. WAAAGH is the ultimate expression of ork culture and religion.
Orks worship two twin gods Gork and Mork who represent two polar opposites and paths an ork can go. Gork is a god of violence, smashing and killing while Mork is the god of violence, smashing and killing when the enemy is not looking.
Blood axes are consideret the most cunning of ork klans. They preffer stealthy tactics and often serve as mercenaries.
Deathskulls are known for looting an pillaging everything on the battlefield and utilizing it.
Snakebites are the most traditionalist and primitive klan, they often use squigs instead of tanks.
Goffs are the most brutal and agressive ork klan. They are also the one most widely known.
Evil Sunz like going fast almost as much as shooting, they have more vehicles and meks then other klans.
Bad moons are the richest klan with the finest gear, because their teef grows faster.
Freelotaz are orks who operate alone instead of under a klan, they are ussualy small warbands, who prefer raiding their enemies.
WAAAGH!isms personality is that of a typical ork boy. Hes loud, violent and speaks in heavy Ork accent.
