Despite their widespread use amongst Nurgle’s daemonic legions, and their recent adoption by the Pusgoyle Blightlords, there is growing discontent amongst the Plague God’s followers surrounding their use of Rot Fly mounts.
“I’d much rather have a horse,” confided a Blightlord who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “The droning of these things is really hard on the ears, and they only live for a few days anyway. I spend more time replacing my mount than actually riding it!”
The Azyr Weekly can exclusively report that no cost-benefit report was completed before Nurgle mandated the use of Rot Flies, nor were there any consultation periods or feedback sessions. The choice appears to have been driven primarily through aesthetic considerations, a consistent weakness of the Ruinous Powers.
Despite the protestations however change seems to be actively resisted within the Garden. Despite this followers are looking at their situation optimistically, with one plague daemon advising “It could be worse. We could be riding snails.”
