Similarily would some unexplored areas be inhabited by 'wildmen' who might join/need to be defeated before that area can be exploited/settled?
The closest side to what I can see in relative to what you are suggesting are the orcs; they are more in the raiding and pillaging fraction.
(Not totaly sure, things may change.)
There are creeps, AI camps and bandits, rouge orc hordes, an alone Ogre guarding junk it’s collected, or it may guard a few gold mines even. There will be many things to fight and kill all over the map.
We will also have probibly some quests for you to do that can be very fun while you build your massive empire.
