The Battle of Plain of Mud was a major battle in mid Fourth Age, held between the eleven Goblin tribes: Thorobshuun, Garagorshuun, Rekeshuun, Drogokishuun, Huzamogaarb, Saragorgak, Ekeleshuun, Idithuun, Narogoshuun, Horogothgar, Yurkolgokh (minus the Dorgeshuun, who had established a hidden city deep underground centuries before.) The battle was a turning point in goblin history, now remembered by goblins far and wide as the turn of the new Goblin century.

Tensions started among the goblins after the God Wars when their god Bandos was banished from Gilenor, leaving the eleven goblin tribes on their own. Without Bandos and other gods, goblins didn't have enough to eat. They first tried to fight humans, but they were not interested in fighting and built walls to defend themself against attacks. This led goblins to attack each other over food. The conflicts culminated near Hemenster, where an all-out battle was fought between the eleven tribes. The battle lasted for many days causing a large number of casualities.

Then Hopespear of the Narogoshuun tribe had a vision by Bandos who told him that goblins are very mighty fighters, but they must stop the battle, otherwise no goblin will be left to live. Bandos told that goblins must find someone to battle, but it must not be other goblins. He also told, that Bandos would soon send the goblins a Chosen Commander, who would lead them to glory.

After Hopespear told about his vision to his general, all of the remaining goblin generals gathered to an emergency meeting and ended the battle. Hopespear's vision was written down in a Goblin Book, and 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.
