When Night Has Come
Night has come to half the world. Three weeks ago, the world stopped turning. Literally. At 6:21 pm (EST), August 31, 2012, the world ceased it's movement, at the exact moment of the full moon, which also stopped its movement. The tides have stopped, and storm systems have ceased rotating. The magnetic field is weakening. Gravity seems heavier these days. Temperatures are rising in North America, western South America, eastern Asia, and most of Australia but are falling in Europe, Africa, western Asia, and most of South America. Scientists are baffled.
Those familiar with the supernatural are not. The war with the Titans is in full swing, and has been for over a century. Both sides are weary and without a major victory since the end of WWII. Both sides are getting desperate, weary of the war and looking to boost the morale of their forces. With the unmoving world, it seems the Titans may have claimed a victory, though none of the gods—not Athena, not Tezcatlipoca, not Odin--can figure out what it means. For years, rumors of the Titan-based Project Autumn Sun have circulated. Chatter has increased recently, leading the gods to believe the freezing of the world's motion is tied to this mysterious Project. However, the goals of this project remain as elusive as ever, as no one is sure what the Titans plan to gain from it. Yet.
All of the World's Scions are tied up in other tasks within the war. There aren't many, with the toll the war has taken on the side of the gods, forcing the pantheons to Visit their last Scions and task them with this important mission. With the danger this poses to their untested, untried sons and daughters, their only hope is to stand together. United they will succeed, divided they will fall, and the World will follow.
"When night has come, and the land is dark, and the moon is the only light we'll see. No, I won't be afraid. No, I won't be afraid, just as long as you stand, stand by me."
