Clash of the Titans – APOKALYPSIS

After 63 sessions over 17 months, the Clash of the Titans campaign finished up yesterday.  I am running the Odyssey of the Dragonlords as the basic campaign ticking in the background so my PCs confronted Lutheria (renamed to Nyx) and the 8 Forgotten Gods (Sunken City Empyreans) in their palace.  PCs won but I am glad I checked this battle before running it.  I question whether this was playtested or not as 7 titans all with 2 to 3 legendary actions and a multitude of spells is unplayable from a DM’s perspective.  So I ended up modifying it to make it playable but still a worthwhile challenge, and this worked out well.

Forgotten Gods


  • The Sky Father (elder empyrean, centaur, war domain)
  • The Sun Goddess (elder empyrean, siren, sun domain)
  • The Lord of Ghosts (elder empyrean, gygan, death domain)
  • The Great Hunter (young empyrean, human, tempest domain)
  • The Moon Maiden (young empyrean, nymph, life domain)
  • The Fire King (young empyrean, cyclops, knowledge domain)
  • The Fish Queen (young empyrean, mermaid, nature domain)
  • The Vile Trickster (young empyrean, goatling, trickery domain)

Forgotten Gods Common Traits

  • AC 20
  • HP 300
  • MV 50’ land, fly and swim
  • Immune to nonmagical attacks
  • Magic Weapons/Resistance
  • +17 to hit
  • +15 to saves
  • Legendary Resistance x3

Each empyrean takes one of the following actions after each turn of combat.  Combat always starts with the Sky Father and then proceeds clockwise around the table from the DM. If there are more PCs than empyreans, remaining empyreans take their turn together at the end of the round. If a PC drops to 0 hps during this battle their soul is sucked into the baby god of annihilation and irrevocably destroyed. Tell the PCs this after the first Empyrean is annihilated.


Roll 1d4. When the timer hits 1 on the DM’s turn the Kraken will reach into the throne room and smash the PCs with its tentacles.  Each PC must make a DC 23 DEX saving throw or take 25 bludgeoning damage.

How did the battle play out?

They focused fired the Moon Maiden as she affected their spellcasting ability, then the Sky Father.  After that the empyreans started dropping like flies before turning on Lutheria and allying with the PCs to do so.  Final survivors who then swore oaths of eternal servitude to the three immortals/demigods were the Sun Goddess, The Great Hunter and The VIle Trickster.
