hmm, I thought that cultures were supposed to be young, not the planet itself.
Cultures = humans, elves etc

yes, that's what i suggested, those who appeared from the rooms are the
ancients and sages are remnants of them. I also suggested that all lesser
creatures were either created by them or evolved from them. It's ok for
me if this happened many 1000 (Majik/Normal) years ago. Well, it
depends if we count also other versions of Majik, there has been many
"tests" and "ancients" before Majik3d. :)
