Often the gods are thought of as always having been; that is a mistake.
Among the pantheons there are the ancient, the relatively new born, and those so old they are all but forgotten.
It is a time of extreme peril in the world. The Titans and their spawn have won many key battles in recent years, the pantheons allied against them pushed to the brink of defeat. Many Scions have been broken beyond repair; some lie dead.
In the last six months the effects of a new power have been felt. Its designs and allegiance unknown, but those with the gift of Prophecy can feel the coming destruction. The Gods themselves are afraid.
