The Kitten Empire
The Kitten Empire, or Kitten Ruins, is a heavily Egyptian or possibly Greco-Roman-inspired zone in Epic Battle Fantasy 3. This zone is arguably the least navigable zone of them all due to the Kitten's relatively devious puzzle system. It is also the name of a long lost race of no-legged cats that inhabited the area that called themselves Kittens. It is possible that the Kitten Empire existed before Godcat took away the limbs of all cats and lasted for a time afterwards, though it has clearly been abandoned for a while.
The Kittens appeared to be more intelligent than any other race, for instance they used puzzles instead of brute force to keep themselves safe. Regardless, they definitely had advanced technological knowledge judging by the presence of the Protector.
The empire seems to have fallen and its ruins have been overrun with monsters.The empire may have split into various factions as Kittens are now weak enough to be taken as house pets and NoLegs and Meow Meow have no issues with killing their own kind, the Kitten Army. It is possible that it was members of the Kitten Empire who sealed Akron when Akron was last free. The proximity to Akron's prison, his claims that he has endured being sealed away before, and the kitten's implied superior magic (and thus potential skill at imprisoning) support this. It is likely that they made (or at least designed) much of the constructs we see today, such as the Red Orb puzzles, Golems and Monoliths.
The empire had some of the most advanced technology ever seen by the world. Lance claims that the Protector had more powerful engines than his Valkyrie Tank, which means they had access to fission-level technology. The kittens also developed the most elaborate lever and orb placement systems in existence and some of the best items in the game are uncovered in the ruins of The Kitten Empire. However despite all this they chose to carve their city of what appears to be sandstone. This may be cultural or just based on what is available in the desert. Interestingly NoLegs seems to understand much of these devices and would explain if he could. However, it is unlikely that modern cats possess the technological knowledge of their ancestors or they would rule the world. Their inability to rule may also be part of Godcat's actions, as suggested by EBF4.
The Kitten Kingdom worshiped Godcat. There are also clay/stone recreations of her, or possibly their leader or maybe just their race as a whole. The kittens buried their dead in underground tombs with some of their belongings. Edible food, staves and guns have all been found in crypts. The Kittens had their own language, both written and spoken although most of it was lost in the fall of the empire.
It was not until EBF4 that it was revealed that they worshipped Godcat.
An archaeological expedition is currently taking place, hoping to get rich and discover more about this glorious civilization. The group, however, is constantly under attack by monsters and cannot bypass the Kitten Kingdom's own defences, ranging from puzzles to the Protector. In spite of this, many relics are being unearthed from macabre idols of crying cats to runes of holy energy.
