From the introduction:
Drifa falls, and the impact of the titan shakes loose avalanches from the distant mountains. The sight of something so massive falling is something you will never forget.
Admittedly, that is because the death throes of the great white wyrm are reducing the settlement you have warded and guarded since your arrival to ruins.
At least most of the people there had fled already, so the death toll isn't quite as bad as it could be, and this does represent an opportunity to create something better.
What can you achieve when you set out to build a city from scratch, rather than trying to guide an organically growing one?
