Physical Description[edit]

Titans resembled huge, muscular humans, and were typically some of the most intelligent of giants. They have hair and skin colors that are the same as human's skin tones and hair colors, but their eyes are generally solid gem or metal colors, the most common of these being quicksilver, gold and bronze.


The titan race began with an individual by the name of Lanaxis, one of the mortal children of Annam All-Father and Othea. Around −31,500 DR, a titan thane named Omo was engaged in combat with Zhoukoudien, leader of the Batrachi. Omo ended up slaying him and inciting war between their people. The titans would come to dominate the batrachi in this war and, according to Abeiran scholars, it would lead the latter to perform a powerful summoning ritual that culminated in the Tearfall. When Annam founded the kingdom of Ostoria he ceded control of the plains to Lanaxis, who would found the dynasty of the titans, east of the Great Rift in the land of Eastern Shaar. The titans and storm giants would create some of Ostoria's greatest cities, featuring mechanical conveyances and galleries that would house artistic tributes to all giantkind. The eventual disappearance of titans on Abeir-Toril was a matter of speculation. According to one myth popularized by the book, History of the Last March of the Giants, the titans grew so arrogant that they challenged the gods. They in turn cursed their monarch with fascination and his subjects with absolute devotion to him. They then sent a star crashing down to the planet and through their nation, causing widespread catastrophes and leaving a huge valley that became the Sea of Fallen Stars. Being cursed with curiosity, the then-king of the titans chased after the star and his dutiful subjects followed suit. They chased it all the way to the Great Sea and then dove in after it, never to be seen again. Another myth claimed that after Lanaxis had poisoned his mother Othea and was cursed by her, his progeny fled to the plane of Arborea.


The Titans were a proud and accomplished race, the predecessors and superiors to the giants that the world knows today. in the time before the reign of the dragons, the titans ruled over the material plane, much like humanity today, with thriving societies, full of culture. Following the fall of Ostoria however, titans were primarily found on planes other than the Prime Material, such as Arborea and Warrior's Rest, never to make contact with the multiverse again... Until you.
