Ruins & Relics of The Fallen City State of Oghug-ugolo For Your Old School Campaigns

Among the desert wastelands of the hills of Oghug-ugolo are the resting places of the ape princes of Maboalogog.The Maboalogog were White ape royalty & warriors of renowned who ruled the ape kind of Accursed Atlantis both sorcerous power & forbidden knowledge of ancient god things. This of course was thousands of years ago. They made war upon the near by human city state of Alatu. But the city state of Oghug-ugolo's big break came when a space craft's faster then light time distillation drive malfunctioned & it crashed into the local foot hills. The white apes clans sent their gorilla warriors to claim the wreck before the humans even knew what had dimensionally fazed into the landscape.

The evolved machine intelligences of the Harororotuli studied the minds, souls, & worldly aspects of the Maboalogog and found them to be pliable, wanting, and open to the weird secrets of transient cosmic technological occult knowledge. The secrets that the Harororotuli possessed must be passed on since their partner race & other worldly benefactors had been killed in the crash. Their partner's biological uniqueness was used to fuel the ship as it began to broadcast their message to their new partners.

Within a few decades only a blink of time to the evolved intelligences, the city state of Oghug-ugolo had progressed far beyond the nearby human city state of Alatu. The white ape kings, their armies of Gorilla warriors, the chimpanzee scientists, and even the orangutan philosophers & law givers all heard the song of the  Harororotuli. Finally they began to call upon the forbidden occult knowledge clouds of the Harororotuli mega intelligences. Once again they had made incredible advances in the forbidden sciences, the realms of technologies, biological applications, they did great things & terrible things.

Finally the Oghug-ugolo sorcerer kings called down demon god Arioch to claim the souls of the human city state of Alatu. The terrible god being appeared, and destroyed every human dwelling within a thousand miles but the humans of Alatu had also heard the song of Harororotuli. They knew them for what they were & fed forbidden knowledge but adapted themselves to the energies of the demon god. They tunneled far below the surface of the Earth prayed for the day of reckoning when their god king would visit a holy purifying curse of divine power upon them. It came and they were changed beyond words and now dwell under the Earth in vast weird cities, their powers of mind greatly expanded. Arioch claimed the lands of the Oghug-ugolo as well.

The wares of a million worlds are traded here and the seas are alight with the sails from ancient and decedent kingdoms in Atlantandria Port City to the stars but in the foot hills of Oghug-ugolo many settlements of gorilla warriors and others of ape kind are still ruled by clerics of the Harororotuli. They make war on the the mutated humans of Alatu who dwell under the glass sands where the skeletons of ruined cities can still be seen. Ape and human are eternally locked in the dance of the Harororotuli.As Arioch feasts upon the souls of all who come under the demon god's purview.

Meanwhile ape adventurers, human underworld mutates, and even white ape sorcerers all scour the ruins of the fallen city states, settlements, for lost world technology, scraps of the song of
Harororotuli and even the occasion weapon of the Oghug-ugolo. Often times mixed parties of mutates, apes, and human adventurers venture into the ruins. Gorilla warriors take special pride in destroying such mixed adventurer types.

Today apes and humans will guide parties into the ruins of the Oghug-ugolo for 80 gold pieces but often leave them for one of the many varieties of demonic horrors of Arioch that still stalk these places.
