Vermin are a humanoid species of rodent. [1]

The Vermin Swarm faction is made up mostly of vermin.

History Edit

The vermin species appeared during the Sixth Age as the result of a magic ritual [2] [3]. Some say it was the priest Quintus Augustu that brought forth the vermin by treating with the vermin gods [4].

Spread Edit

After being defeated at Avras at the conclusion of the Eighth Age, most of the vermin were forced to retreat into the earth, to live underground. [1]

However, in some parts of the world the vermin live more openly, such as in Sagarika where they are rumoured to live side by side with men [5].

There are also tales of white furred vermin living far up north. [1]
