The Battle of Plain of Mud was a major battle taking place in the 4th age between the goblin tribes.

Prelude and battle

About in the middle of 4th Age, the largest human and a few other intelligent races' settlements were able to defend themselves from attacks by hostile tribes and races. Goblins were starting to lose the competition for food resources in Gielinor due to inferior technology and skills. Due to the fact that food was unevenly distributed between different goblin tribes, goblin tribes without food started attacking tribes with food.

It culminated when almost every goblin tribe gathered into 2 factions in place of modern Fishing Guild and the Battle of Plain of Mud began which lasted several days. Both sides were about evenly strong. Due to the rainy weather, lots of goblin bodies and goblin feet trampling the ground, it turned into mud.

Hopespear's vision

One of the Narogoshuun tribe goblin soldiers named Hopespear saw a dream about Bandos ordering him to stop the battle. Although Bandos liked the battle, he was afraid that it would lead goblin race to extinction, thus losing many of his followers. Bandos promised that one day he'll send a chosen commander who will lead goblins to victory.

Aftermath

After Hopespear told about his vision to his general, all goblin generals gathered to an emergency meeting and ended the battle. Hopespear's vision was written down in a Goblin Holy Book. A temple was built in the place where Battle of Plain of Mud took place. It soon sank into mud where it is still one of the most important goblin temples.
