One of the most malevolent forces on the Twisted Earth is the Savant, a group of powerful psionicists whose lineage dates back to before the Fall. Once the prisoners and human guinea pigs of the Ancients, they now seek to build a new world order with themselves at the top and all others as their slaves.
From time to time, the Savant is known to conduct crusades into regions beyond their empire. Sometimes these crusades aim to eradicate the remnants of the Ancients; other times they are undertaken simply to expand their territorial control. Temple of the Savant is a Darwin's World adventure that takes place during one of these Savant crusades.
