Broo are creatures from Greg Stafford's Glorantha setting (used in tabletop RPGs, board games, books, and at least one computer game). They're filthy disease-ridden goat-headed humanoids who worship chaos.

The various chaos patrons are taken from Glorantha too, as is the concept of Chaos Features.

Great Ones are from Lovecraft's Dreamlands. Basically they're the "gods" of the Dreamlands, although as gods go they're not very powerful at all. The Great One race assumes that you're the offspring of one of these "gods" - they're known to mate with humankind.
