Ogres are an old race, one of the first in the land. Ogres in “Olhydra” are as intelligent as they are strong, with a natural inquisitive and inventive nature. Many of the technological advancements and steam powered locomotions in the land are originally of ogre design.
Ogres are known to live in the high mountains of “Mt Ordeals”, far away from most civilization. Outside of “Mt Ordeals” ogres are rarely seen, usually only occasionally travelling into towns to barter goods or sell their newest inventions.
The ogres’ ancient rivals and enemies are the gnomes. In ancient “Olhydra”, the ogres and gnomes embraced different methods of technology and slowly grew more and more distant and competitive. While the ogres embraced steam and science, the gnomes developed magic and supernatural powers. Today ogres and gnomes rarely cross paths, and when they do, they each meet with aggression and mistrust.
