Once founded as the Cyclops capital, the Cyclops stronghold was attacked and partly destroyed by the Capra from the Sascilia Steppes a few decades ago. Because of that, the size of the Cyclops Stronghold shrank to a small part of the northwestern summit.
After humans started to build settlements close to the stronghold, the Cyclops king succeeded in unifying the tribes and the Cyclops area spread to its current size. To this day the Cyclops are using some of the captured human settlements southwest of the stronghold as breeding farms.— from us.runesofmagic.gameforge.com
