Story Post: The Age of Titans

Some say that once all men were titans.

In the beginning of the world the gods who shaped creation combined the elements and divine power to create their greatest servants. They were powerful creatures that attended to the fine work of the world, beings of magic and vast size and power. Enormous, they dwarfed all other living beings both physically and in terms of magical power.  They shaped the mountain ranges, they created the seas and skies, they heated the heart of the land in molten flame, and they created all the races in the world.

They imbued the elves with magic, making them natural mages. They created the dwarves to build and craft and shape. They created the Lamaak to inspire and invent. They created many great creatures and works of power. Great beasts that dwelled beneath the seas; powerful dragons and spirits of air and earth. While the goddess and other creators of the world had shaped the world and given it life, the Titans made it the world it is. They were a force for order, creation, and power.

They were corrupted.

Records of the earliest period of history are fragmentary, even among the races that can date back to the earliest eras. It was, however, an era of peace. The titans were builders and shapers, created to form the world in a manner pleasing to its creators. By all account they were pleased to do so for uncounted eons.

When they changed, they changed suddenly.

Mountains were ripped asunder. Seas were boiled. The deep of the earth cooled and the skies ripped apart with thunder. They waged war and leveled their great cities. The races they created cowered in fear. Worse, many created their own new servants - those now considered monsters. Goblins, the undead, horrors lurking in the oceans of the deep; dragons of a new and vile kind. Creatures of living lava emerged from volcanoes and ravaged the land. The Titans aided none, devouring their former servants, creations, and each other in a massive orgy of war and consumption and corruption.

This was the first time the Overmind was spotted in the mortal world.

He was not a titan. Though taller by far than any of the servant races, by human standards he is merely very tall. The titans stood between dozens and hundreds of meters tall. He stood a mere eight and a half feet. But he was vastly powerful.

His origins were unclear, but his purpose was not. He was not a deliverance for the created races. He conquered and enslaved them, breeding a vast army of monstergirls. With incredible magical power he faced the titans, fought the titans, and slew the titans.

He was slain in turn. For though he was powerful, they were capable of rivaling gods.

He did not fight for hatred of them, but for the reason he has always fought; to conquer, to breed, to claim.

Titans cannot be claimed. In time, they died. Unlike the Overmind, they did not return.

The servant races created heroes to fight the army of Titans and Overmind, striking whenever one side was weak. The Titans devoured all, the Overmind enslaved all he could. The mortal races survived and struck blindly at all. Beasts of nightmare ruled the land.

In the single greatest instance of divine intervention in history, the goddess acted.

Over centuries of war with each other, the mortal races, and the Overmind, the Titans had weakened considerably, but still undoubtedly ruled the world. She struck them down with incredible power in a single instant. Why she did not also strike down the Overmind - why she has never struck him down - is something no scholar or priest has been able to answer. Most believe him to be a divine test or punishment for the mortal races. Why then did the titans rebel? Why did she strike them down?

It is recorded in most histories that they had died at that moment. However in the most ancient and fragmentary records of the elves and dwarves, it is recorded that something quite different happened.

The titans did not die, but were changed. Stripped of their vast power, stripped of their size, stripped of everything that made them great, they were remade into a new race. A savage race. The race of Mankind.

It is known to be true that humans first appeared shortly after the titans died. It is known to be true that for many eons mankind fought with its own nature to claw its way to civilization. Though many humans rank among some of the most powerful mages in history humans have no innate magic of their own. Though there are many powerful human mages they borrow from the goddess or beings of ancient power or are descendents of humans and non humans interbreeding. Humans also have the innate need, drive, and desire to reshape the world in their image. Modern humans are not savage cannibals, however. Indeed, they consider themselves to be the pinnacle of civilization, and have done so since the time before the era of the Chianinan empire.

Are the humans the descendants of titans, stripped of power and allowed to wallow in savagery until they beat the madness out of themselves? No one knows. Few remain who were alive in that time, and even the Overmind has lost his memory.

But there is one who could say.

The Overmind could not conquer the titans and could not claim them. But even so, one of those proud, mad beings willingly lay with him.

Once, and only once. Through poetry, romance, wit, and guile, he briefly charmed a Titaness.

The first daughter of the Overmind. A titan by birth, slightly shorter than the Overmind, but no lesser in power. Godlike power, godlike will, and the Overmind's endless, relentless desire to conquer and consume and take. She did not disappear in the divine purge with the titans. Like her father she remained untouched.

In her time she sought to become queen of the world. To slay or capture or rape all, to consume everything and become the queen of all things. The first true queen of monstergirls, rival to her father, and last titan, surviving beyond the purge.

For the first time in his existence the Overmind did not try to claim and enslave a woman through corrption, magic, strength or guile. He went to true, total war with her empire.

The Overmind is not a man. He does not choose; he is a being made of his own purpose. His purpose is his power, and his power IS his purpose. Never before or since has he deviated from his own path in this way. None know why. Perhaps it was the similarity of their nature and soul, or perhaps it was a different reason, known only to the Overmind himself. Were the actions that he took thereafter some form of lengthy guile? Were they taken out of fear? Hate? None know. Even with the titans he did not take an action such as this.

They battled in a conflict that shattered the heavens and rent the earth. No record survives of that battle, but it is clear that the Overmind emerged victorious. On that site was created a shrine, tended to by ancient monstergirls. It was not a tomb, but a prison. Its keepers would never become warriors or slaves, forever given leave from that requirement. They had only one duty; to ensure that her prison would never open by any hand. Daughters of the strongest mortal heroines in the age of titans and the Overmind at the height of his power, they are undoubtedly the most powerful monstergirls in the world - if they still exist.

No one has seen them or the shrine in thousands of years. Or, at least, seen it and escaped to talk about it. They take their duty seriously.

But one thing is true. Only she could truly say the truth; whether all men were once titans, and recall the first age of the world.

Authors Note: 
The First Daughter is not the last boss. She is not going to be a party member. You will be able to visit the shrine in the next release, but she will not factor in the game in any important way. 


  1. If she's not going to be relevant... why make her at all?

    1. Because backstory is awesome.
      Great bit of lore Cypress, before I read the authors note I was concerned that the daughter might be either Joy or the tower mistress. Look forward to visiting the shrine. :)

  2. Planning out sequels is skipping way ahead, but should I ever do one she'll be the protagonist.

    Including things just to include them is bad writing. Some of this will be quite relevant to the story of Overwhored, she just won't be a playable character in this game.

    The shrine will also be a place where you can bang some non-recruitable monstergirls after doing some short quests.

    1. The way I see it, you just building a world, some people find it hard to understand, not just accept, that other things happen around the world that have no relevance to the story. It makes it seem more real and draws the people in, you see this with all the best written novels

  3. To bad that sounds like an awesome character to have in your story.

  4. wow, now the story contain myth creature too :)

  5. "[...]Will not factor into the game in any important way."

    I smell bonus boss.

  6. Alright then, you sir are doing an awesome job.

  7. Wow that's a good writting :) i really take a lot of pleasure in reading it.

  8. you should put these in-game via books in the tower, help improve story for those who don't come to your blog

  9. Or maybe an area in the Tower that has trophies you can collect that gives the Overmind flashback's to before he was imprisoned leading up to his imprisonment.

    I don't know about you but a guy that old may have some occasion to reminisce. Like a memento from his child so he wouldn't forget her for one reason or another. Or one to remember the first time he encountered the Heroes.

  10. I like your story posts, they are clever and well written. Thanks for this small diversion.

  11. Hey this is kind of awkward but I have no idea how else to get help. I've been trying to download your game to play it but it prompts for a password before I can extract the file. I saw an in game password somewhere on your site but that doesn't seem to be it. I was hoping for some help please. Again sorry about the random 'help me' comment.

    1. There is no password to extract the file. I re-downloaded it from 4shared and tested it myself just to make sure nothing weird was going on.

      I don't know why you're getting a password prompt, but overwhored doesn't need one to extract the game itself from the .rar.

    2. Must be the program I'm using. Thanks. I'll try again. The game sounds to good to give up on. ;)

  12. hi I am having a problem with the game. When i play the down key don't work. It happens when I start the game up and on all my saves.

  13. Saying the the entire thing in a cool, deep voice aloud makes the story sound better. I guess that's why the narrator of stories like these is a deep voiced guy, a hot chick, an old person who lived the story, or some kind of bard singing the fantastic tale. Keep up the good work with the game and the backstory.
