Eve's Titan

"Even in the thick of the jungle, you know when you pass under her shadow. You know she can see you, even if you can't see her."
— A local describing the Titan's omniscient presence

Eve's Titan is the tallest known grounded monolith across the two continents. It soars a dizzying 22,000 feet from the ground, its shadow reaching a dark arm across miles of thick jungle. It has the cross section of an obtuse triangle. The longest side is just over 450 feet long, and faces southward.

The Titan has a solar Luminosity. It is so huge that it never loses its charge of Aura. Its veins throb an ember-like red throughout the night, pulsing like a heartbeat.

Despite the monolith's glass-like coating, stubborn plant-life still manages to find purchase. Thick vines, mosses, and even small trees crawl up the Titan's surface. The plants are eager to take advantage of the free sunlight above the jungle canopy, and so the battle for space on the monolith is constant. The highest a tree has managed to hold on is about 200 to 300 feet off the ground--hardly a speck on the monolith's surface when viewed from afar. The mosses and vines climb higher, but nothing reaches above 1,000 feet.

History

The Titan has been the object of admiration and worship for centuries. It can be seen from almost anywhere at any time--if it weren't for the curve of the planet, it would be visible from the shattered peaks. This makes it the perfect landmark for many nations in the east. It works as a giant sundial. Supposedly it can even measure temperature by counting the pulses of its veins.

I love plants just being stubborn and still clinging to the Titan.

Plants invented stubbornness

It's a dizzying sight, for sure! It's easier to take in from a distance, when its true size is less overwhelming
