Gramarye was founded by the Romantic Emigres, a group of colonists who left Earth sometime before the PEST takeover. They were led by twelve rich men who spend their fortunes to buy a cruiser to carry themselves and the select few to find a new planet and live lives in a medaevil era. Unbeknownst to the Romatics many of the selected were gene carriers for telepathy and telekinesis, thus generations after its founding inhabitants began to features traits of "magic."
Because the Romantic's cruiser was self-owned the planet they set course for was never logged and they were lost from the known universe. Upon founding Gramarye the twelve individuals responsible for the journey took new names and became the first of the lords still present in Gramrye. By not teaching their children of technology all knowledge of advanced civilization was lost to the Gramarians. The only remnants of such knowledge is the Order of Saint Vidicon who preserved such knowledge within the confinds of their monestary.
