Long ago, the continent of Atlantis was the jewel of the world, and playground for the Greek Gods. It was a land of progress, where legends were born and where people carried the blood of the gods. Their gift-- that blood was revered.
However, as time passed the humans grew prideful-- they thought themselves better than the gods.
In fact, they thought that they could control forces even the gods feared.
Atlantis…it did not sink. It was completely torn apart.
The humans released forces of nature that the Gods had imprisoned. These were the Titans, whom had been imprisoned in Tartarus during the war for Olympus. Now freed, they sought to destroy everything.
Atlantis and it's people fought back the invasion valiantly, but were annihilated.
Pain and misery spread throughout the rest of the world. Before they could erase the humans from existance, however, the Gods met them in battle.
The humanity would be saved, a second gift. In a battle for the fate of the world, the Titans were once again sealed. However, the Gods performed the ultimate sacrifice: nearly all were wiped out.
However, there was hope, as the Gift from the Gods was not lost and those that remained knew that one day, their fallen would be born again…
But only when the world needed them
Thousands of years later, humanity has not forgotten the gods that sacrificed themselves for them. Their lives are still linked to the gifts given to them. Though the survivors do not live among them, they occasionally visit, doing their part to keep the balance in a world where some duties are left unfulfilled.
Without all the gods alive to take care of the planet, human societies have reached the breaking point. Those with resources horde them, forcing those without to fend for themselves in any way they can. As crime rises, so do tensions, and all know it's only a matter of time before the ultimate war breaks out.
For this reason, some have once again turned to the Titans, believing that they hold the power to lift the world from it's current state. Many of those that now look to the Titans look to them as the only hope humanity has left, even at the risk of destroying everything they know. Many believe that what will rise from the ashes on the other side is better than the rot that currently exists.
Little do they know, the Titans have mysteriously found a way out again, now with new plans for the Earth...
