The Old Ones were an enigmatic race that owned the vast territories of Terra 7 until the arrival of the human warlord and king, Herman des Villeyres, in the Fourth Ea’tegra of the Expansion Campaigns. They are said to have been extremely talented in heathen sciences and biotic abilities – often described as ‘superhumans’ by the knights of the First Order. They warred with Herman’s men for many years, eventually culminating in the Battle of Lakeview Cliff, at which the forces of Herman’s army slammed into the unsuspecting armies of the Old Ones from either side, effectively ending the war and Herman’s campaign.
The Old Ones are said to have had technology that has left even the great inventors since befuddled. it is said that one such machine or device is responsible for the massive lake that lays around the capital. While in other places it is said that they had weaponry to reduce men to nothing but ashes. Scholars have dug into the many ruins at the Herfled Mountain Site which is thought to have been where the Battle of Lakeview Cliff took place. And multiple artifacts have been sequestered away in CIREN vaults hidden beneath the city, Still, people find the remnants of this elder race in every aspect of their daily lives; for the very cities they trek through are built upon the remains of what the Old Ones lost to Herman’s Knights.
