The Seric Kingdom was not always the dominant kingdom on the small continent island of Seria. In fact, the human population that makes up the majority of the kingdom’s population was not always free. Deep in their past the humans of Seria were slaves in a great orc empire that spanned the entire continent island, with only small groups of elves and dwarves barely keeping their freedom by hiding. During this time a human slave, Gilramore the First of the Free Men, rose to lead the humans in overthrowing their orcish masters. Over the course of his life Gilramore founded the Seric Kingdom and with the help of the elves and dwarves, pushed the orcs back until they became the ones in hiding. Of course even these basic principles are glossed over by succeeding generations of humans who add their own embellishments to avoid the ugly truth that the orc empire at its downfall had more power than the Seric Kingdom that followed, even in the current era. Only the elves and dwarves, with their long lives and even longer memories, can truly comprehend what the orcs, though diminished, are capable of when they unite.
