"Here's the detail about 'living twice'. The ancient never got old. However, they could not avoid death. That was their 'first life'. After the first death, they were able to revive, or 'awake'. And then, they lived a second life, aging slowly this time." - Alustin, famous Alchemist.
Few facts are known about the Ancients. They appear to have lived hundreds of years before and they seem both technologically and magically advanced. They created an array of defensive weapons they used to guard their relics. Such as in the Ancient Stone Chamber.
Records from 23 books from an Ancient Codex suggest that they lived two lives through the use of the Black Stone.
Ancient Stone Chamber, Forest of Seclusion, Balenos
Concealed by hordes of Tree Spirits, these ruins are hard to see from outside. Upon entering, you'll observe that the architectural methods used to construct these ruins are far different from the buildings of the contemporary era. Many archaelogists vainly tried to discover something of value in this place. However, a recent rumor suggests that Edan, the famous adventurer and archaeological expert, and his party were able to successfully translate the hieroglyphs of these ruins.
He was the peerless leader of the Kabua, unmatched by the heads of any other tribe.
