Earth and Fire and Darkness - Titans .. Leviathans ... Early Gods (ascended titans) all based on Earth and Fire and darkness ... dark gods .. Change/Chaos was prominent at this time .. the creatures of this time were unmakers .. destroyers .. seekend to destroy and steal the powers of their bretheren In the beginning there was Darkness, stifling Heat and Stone .. Born in the womb of the earth, the Titans, vast powerful primordial beings ruled this age, slaying each other and absorbing the power of their bretheren ... The aspect of this era was Change .. creation at its most visceral. As the numbers of Titans thinned and they grew stronger, some developed intelligence and cunning as weapons and came to dominate the age ... these were the early gods. As the powers of the elements waned and waxed ... so come the next age as Fire succumbed to Water ...

Earth, Water and Darkness ... Ice filled the caverns of the earth ... cold and still ... many of the lesser titans slept/hid through this era mostly those of a firelike nature .. some did not awaken. It is seen as a quiet time ... with many titans adopting ice and waterlike powers to survive. Slowly the Ice covered the earth ... making way for the next age .. Air, Water and Darkness ... As Ice overcame the earth .. The titans who had not succumbed or hid ... sought refuge above the ice ... they found a new element .. Air. Freedom was sought and found .. the never ending wars of the titans continued in the dark stormy skies .. around the icy spires jutting from the landscape. Another cold age .. with strong winds. and thunder .. The race of titans was destroying itself ... however as the defeated had their essence stolen, those that remained were stronger .. more intelligent .. more dangerous. it is during these times that the titans made servants .. lesser creations to aid them in their struggle. The races of Dragons and Giants came into being, regarded now as powerful and frigthening creatures, they were little more than faithful pets to their masters. With change/chaos still in the ascendant these creations were powerful. Few were prepared for the coming of the next age ... which burst forth in a blaze of glory. Air, Water and Light ... High in the sky .. a new Titan was born .. from the purposeful union of a pair of likeminded powerful Titans. This could be seen as the first birth, the light bringer, where Titans sought to change the ascendancy of darkness. Others believe It was merely the natural order manifesting itself and a larger change .. the coming of Order and fate was announcing itself. Whatever the reason .. this new Titan soon won many allies, great battles were fought against the older of their bretheren, new dragons and giants were created to help them ... other creatures also ... beings of light .. winged beings all ... in some ways less than the dragons and giants .. but given a freedom that those born in the darkness could not possess. Seeking aid from those slumbering ancient titans from the earlier ages ... the remaining titans of ice and darkness ... awoke their earthbound bretheren and ushered in a new age. Air/Earth, Water and Light ... These ancient ones .. were not enough to defeat the titans of air and light .. however they did restore some balance to the conflict. Strangely the losing forces of this era were those bound to the Ice .. who receeded from the power of the earth resurgent. This weakening ... allowed the return of the other first element .. Fire. Volcanes erupted from the earth .. lava flowed and melted the glaciers and warmed the icebound wastes. It was during this time .. races such as the elves and dwarves were created, lesser beings of power .. somehow the creative powers of the Titans were failing them ... Air/Earth, Water/Fire and Light Change and chaos were fading ... fate and order were impinging upon the cosmos. None felt this more than the Titans .. as their ability to absorb the powers of their brethern started to fade ... peace of sorts came into being as the Titans sought to right the cosmos and return to the old ways. It was during this time .. races such as the elves and dwarves were created, lesser beings of power .. somehow the creative powers of the Titans were failing them ...
