The Aasaurian Chronicles: Forbidden City
The Titans were the avatars of the cardinal gods during the first era; the era of creation. During this time, the gods used their creations to shape the world in their image, carelessly leaving the Titans to their own devices while they slept. As the gods slept, the Titans grew more and more arrogant, believeing that they themselves were the rightful rulers of the fledgling world which they had helped shape with their own hands. They gathered their forces, what Titans they could, and marched upon Ikathane. The ensuing battle would come to be known as the War of the Makers, and would all but decimate the Titan race. Those that remained swore fealty to the gods who forbade them to die while they rendered services to the mortal races.
