"Oh." He says. "I read of a few that seemed shrouded in mystery, most disagreeing on whether they were true ancient civilizations, or just stories, myself believing the former, if with some added author embellishment. The only one that comes to mind right now, though I forget the name, was of a land in constant battle with a plague of sorts. I don't believe it was ever specified whether this plague was disease, magic, odd creatures, or what-have-you, though. There was also one on an island civilization that spread through an archipelago, technically one nation, though warring with itself in multiple factions. That one, though, I feel to be less true than most others, although with some grain of actuality in it."
