Living in the harsh deserts of Mahlor, the Ancients are a secretive society; building cities in hard to reach places and disliking outsiders. Their core race are called the Aten; physically strong and able to survive the harsh conditions through a build-up of water in their system. Living in the same society are their demigods; half human, half animal. These demigods have been granted power from the Gods above and represent society in different skills. They aid the Aten in religious and diplomatic matters as well as being strong in war.
With the assistance of the Gods, the Ancients have strengths in Time and Resourcefulness. They are able to plan ahead and see the future, as well as view the past to learn from the mistakes.
The Ancients have always been tactful with time and resources, able to control the game with more options available.
