Book Text:

The new generation of Ogres
exhibited little to no
capacity to learn all but the
most menial of tasks. The
youngsters proved to be
incapable of understanding the
written languages and they
struggled with speech, often
communicating in grunts and
barely comprehendible babble.
We were hard on the first few
children of this new
generation. We did not yet
fully understand what was
happening and placed them in
dangerous situations or left
them stranded in the marsh to
fend for their own survival.
As time passed and our colony
dubbed Oggok, a word that the
youngsters could remember
and enunciate, grew in numbers
it became apparent to us
adults that a great curse had



been laid upon our offspring.
Every child being born
exhibited the same physical
and mental characteristics of
those first few of the new
generation.
Gone were the days of the
Rallosian Empire. No longer
would there be heroic olive
skinned warriors, their
dreadlocks adorned with
bones of their enemies,
brilliant minded tactitions
and strategist to ensure our
victories, or magi to wield
fierce magic and open portals
to even the realms of the Gods
themselves. I am old now, an
elder of my people because I
am among the last of the
pre-curse generations. I leave
these words that I now ink in
the care of the most astute of
the new generation Ogres, I



pray that they will endure
after I have gone to join
Rallos in the afterlife,
perhaps The Warlord will shed
some hope on my despair and
provide some answers as to
why his glorious Empire has
fallen.

---- Elder Gromok Hergom,
former soldier of the
Rallosian Legions.
