The Titanomachy has forever changed our planet. Perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced has been averted, but not without a heavy cost.
Kaiju that were once under human control now roam free, taking revenge against their former captors at every opportunity. The events of the Titanomachy have also awakened kaiju never before seen from their slumber beneath the planet’s crust, replacing those lost during the great conflict. Word about us spreads quickly among the kaiju…and not much of it is good. Worse yet, there are signs that the creatures we fought in the Titanomachy are still out there, and they have not given up….
The Days of Dikorus may be over, but for now…post-Cycle Earth lives
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to After The Impact
If you haven’t yet read my “Titanomachy” short story, what follows below are *SPOILERS*. If you want to catch up now, go here and start reading: gilarah93.deviantart.com/galle…
But for the rest of you, welcome again!
After The Impact (ATI for short) is the first planned expansion for the Days Of Dikorus kaijuverse. It follows post-Cycle Earth after the Titanomachy – a world war brought about by the kaiju Diaborus and his followers – comes to a close, ending with a narrow victory in humanity’s favor. But we couldn’t do it alone; the Tyloban Empire helped out but only to save themselves, for if humanity fell their tenuous claim to the planet might also be in jeopardy. Unfortunately things turned messy and, one thing leading to another, one of the Empire’s massive habitation ships was shot down, its remains littering the eastern hemisphere. The wreckage is a treasure trove of Tyloban tech and knowledge that, in the right (or wrong) hands, could drastically change the course of human history. Interested parties from all over the world are now rushing to find it….
Here are some new features we can expect for After The Impact:
— Factions as shown in kaiju bios will be modified a bit from what we’re used to. Nothing major, just a small overhaul. Most of you probably won’t even notice.
— Shorter and more concise kaiju bios. For those of you who like an expository essay, sorry. I’m really trying to cut down on the clutter and make my writing concise and easier to read. This applies to descriptions of kaiju abilities, characters, and backstories. Also, all new deviations for ATI (except the bestiary) will have “ATI:” in the title instead of “DOD:”.
— Life on post-Cycle Earth goes on. The setting will continue to develop as time progresses, with short stories and artwork making up the bulk of this new content. Some standing lore has also been updated; Sunset Blade, for instance, now has to rebuild its menagerie after losing most of it during the Titanomachy. The bestiary will continue to be posted as well.
— The return of classic kaiju! Many of DOD’s old monsters are gone while others still remain; those that survived the Titanomachy are back with designs both new and old, along with updated bios and character descriptions. For those who like spoilers, here’s a few familiar faces who are making a comeback: Iranitith, Gilarah, and Razorr.
— All-new kaiju! A whole new set of monsters are coming to post-Cycle Earth, now that I finally have the hang of designing them. I won’t divulge anything on them further, but expect great things.
I’ll gladly answer any questions you may have about ATI or Days Of Dikorus in general. Thank you for your support!
