Humans Against Monsters, abbreviated as H.A.M., is a human-supremacist cult who believe that humans are the most pure of Gielinor's creatures, and aim to rid Gielinor of all races that they perceive as monsters, which includes goblins and ogres. They are attempting to achieve this by recruiting others to their cause and lobbying the authorities of Gielinor, such as Duke Horacio and King Roald to do something about them, claiming that large-scale slaughters are necessary. Most of H.A.M.'s members do not wish to be the ones killing monsters themselves however, although some of the more extremist members of the group, such as Sigmund, have attempted to take matters into their own hands, but these efforts have always been thwarted. H.A.M. also possess a very warped view of the history of Gielinor, believing things such as the hero Arrav of Avarrocka slaughtering a tribe of goblins instead of forming a treaty with them.
Most of H.A.M.'s members consist of refugees from settlements destroyed by less civilised races, such as goblins, and they operate from the caves that monsters once inhabited, claiming to clean out and defend these caves so monsters can no longer inhabit them.
Although H.A.M. is a Saradominist organisation, the ethics of members acting in the interests of the group have been the subject of much controversy. Some of their more extremist members have been known to kidnap, steal, torture, and murder to accomplish their goals. This has led some people to accuse the organisation of being nothing more than a xenophobic cult.
Although many members consider them inferior to humans, and may even express distaste for them, H.A.M. do not officially consider human-like races such as dwarves and gnomes monsters, and as such have not made any major efforts to wipe them out.
