Secrets of the Lost Empire
Most enigmatic of the Elder Races, many believe the Saurians built sophisticated civilisations when the elves were still dressed in animal furs. Obsessed with purposes only they can comprehend, the scaled legions are found wherever they are least expected, dealing bloodshed or bestowing aid with equally indecipherable motives. Do not try to understand or bargain with them, for they ruled this earth at its dawn, and they have not forgotten the true glory of the Saurian Ancients.
Described in the oldest myths as tyrants, the time of the Saurians and the Dawn Age ended when they were cast down by subjugated races, or else swallowed by the sea in some great cataclysm of that turbulent time. Ruins that remain, even in the heart of Vetia, attest that Saurians built structures greater than any seen today. Their descendants endure, and sightings have been reported from ocean, desert and jungle alike. None can know the true scope of their civilisation, but all accounts agree that their warriors act with an unnerving unity of purpose.
The Saurian Ancients army either supports its troops with magic and spells or uses these tricks to try to blast the opponent off the board. The Saurian Ancients can muster some medium sized combat troops to engage and block the opponent and then counter their opponents with monsters. A general commanding the Saurian Ancients can choose from a variety of troops and units to win the day against their opponent!
Lore of Saurian Ancients
The Saurian Ancients are believed to have used magic longer than any other race. The relationship of the Cuatl with magic is like breathing air – their pampered bodies reflecting the degree to which their mind has focused upon its use in spell craft. No longer requiring the words or gestures, they are able to act and communicate telepathically and through others. Paradoxically, they value order and structure to such an extent that some of the wilder paths of magic are beyond philosophical acceptance, maybe even beyond intellectual grasp. Yet the paths they are able to use, they employ with exceptional skill, while making use of Skink practitioners to connect with their environment and the many beasts which complement their civilisation.
