Humanlike philosophers believe that Titans, Elves, Dwarves, and Humans originated from specific homelands existing before the Great Flood. There is wide consensus for this reconstruction in the West, but not complete. They are generally accepted even though the ultimate origin of the races is not universally accepted.

Titans

Titans along with gods are the key characters of the very oldest oral legends. Modern titanologers hold that titans were actual humanlikes who ruled the world over 15,000 years ago before the Flood of Aturyanda. The titanist school maintains that titans were the guardians of ancient technology of which modern titancraft is a rebirth on a minor scale.
