In prehistoric times, long before man discovered he could pull metal from earth, there were The Tribes. Five species of hominids that are early precursors to recognizable species of other fragments. They were created in Torar's prehistory by the mi-go that established colonies on the planet, each for a specific purpose. In this time magic is unknown and while gods exist they are not the familiar forces of modern times, but rather ancient and strange beings. However, there is power in the world around you, and the primitive spirits that inhabit it.
