History Edit

Based on the imagery of the World Hymn, ogres where one of the different kinds of species that were enslaved by the Saurian Ancients in the First Age. [1]

The ogres once ruled a great empire in Augea, lead by Qenghet Khan, also known as the Khan of Khans. [2] [3]

The empire was split apart into five kingdoms, two of which were near obliterated when the Inferno was created. The survivors of those two kingdoms united under the hero Tsanas, who lead the ogres to a new home in the Sky Mountains. The descendants of the other three kingdoms continued to live the nomadic life of the steppes. [4]

 Ogres took part in the battle of Volsk in the Eighth Age, fighting against Sunna and her armies. [5]
