What is Titanguard?
Titanguard is, simply put, a quick celebration of the Holidays that involves your Titan(s) getting in the spirit. All it involves is a picture of your Titan(s) doing Christmas (or whichever celebration you follow) things, such as guarding the tree, protecting the presents, dressing as Santa, and so much more.

And the name?
Titanguard is a playful riff on the Secutarii, the Titan Guard, of the Legios. In the same way that they guard our beloved Titans, so too do our Titans now guard playful Christmas traditions of the past as well as the presents (pun intended) of now. The name is just a run-together of Titan Guard to show quick symbolism and the fact that Shadow isn't too good with naming events.
This is out of the blue. What started it?
The simple explanation is that a member of TOC (Jonathan F, owner of Imperio Cruentissiumus and Frigora Mordent) was having fun one day and experimenting with the idea of having playful fun and getting Christmas hats for his Titans in order to celebrate. The idea was too much fun to ignore and Shadow couldn't help but bring the idea to Drake. It snowballed from there and we now have this little festival.
Imperio Cruentissiumus and Frigora Mordent show their support for Santa.
How do I take part?
The heart of Titanguard is TOC itself. The festival will be as big as you guys want it to be. All you need to do is send us a single picture (like the two above) and you'll be part of this. Simply:
1.) Take a single picture of your Titan(s) in the holiday spirit. They can be under the tree, wrapped up in Christmas lights, next to the presents, guarding over the decorating of the tree, pestering the Elf on the Shelf, or any other such Holiday related stuff.
2.) Avoid any overt advertising or suggestive imagery, or anything that is unsafe to you or your Titan. Also, only Forge World engines should be in the image.
3.) Email ShadowWolf32387@hotmail.com your image with the subject line of "Titanguard Festival- Titan Name" While we know many of your Titans by look, we cannot always call the names up from memory and we want to make sure you get your chance in the spotlight. If you have a special caption you'd like use, place it in the body of that email.
All Titanguard Festival entries must be in by 21-12-16 in order to take part, especially since a friend is helping us make the final part of the celebration.
What's the end result?
Titanguard will show off your lovely engines and pictures. On Friday the 16th, the first round of pictures will be posted. On Friday the 23rd, we'll post the second round. All of these will be individual pictures with different captions to them. The final part, the close of Titanguard, is a collage picture of all the images that we receive, bringing our Titans together to celebrate Christmas.
Have fun, TOC.
