d20 Future: CODEX GALACTICA
“Those who came before all us.”
That race or group of races that were in the galaxy before the First Galactic War and the Elohim Wars. Rumored to have control of the Galaxy ten of thousands of years ago. Poorly preserved ruins of The Ancients are found all around the galaxy and are considered very valuable. Also known as Founders, Preservers and the Old Ones.
The Ancients: The Precursor Species
“Precursor” is a term used to describe the beings that came before the species that now inhabit the galaxy. These long dead beings are a constant source of debate, study, and in some sectors, worry. Some have left detailed records of who they were and what they hoped to accomplish, while others have left few clues that they existed beyond ruins and cryptic writings. In some cases, technology has been left behind with strange and wondrous power, which has set off a gold-rush to discover ancient technologies for both power gain and profit.
Below is a smattering of some of the known Precursor species and some details to their origins and the dangers left behind.
