Created in aeons past, perhaps on an entirely different world, the mechanical men known as Oorgolian soldiers patrol isolated areas of the Ninth World, particularly the Plains of Kataru and Scorpion’s Reach. No one knows the origin of the word “Oorgolian", though it is thought to be a term from a tongue that is now long dead.
Oorgolian soldiers are almost always found in groups. Lanky and alien in their movements, these quasi-humanoid automatons stand almost 8 feet tall. In their three-fingered hands, they wield a variety of weapons. Originally they were almost certainly outfitted with numenera weaponry, but about half have lost their armaments and now wield Ninth World weapons, such as spears, crossbows, or axes.
