starting with Erebus and Nyx we have the protogenoi followed by the Titans followed by the Olympians followed by the gigates followed by the demigods and the ending with the Trojan War.
there is however a whole class of stories that don't fit well into this framework.
these stories often involve Artemis and the oceanids and often have common themes (Giants hurling rocks or mountains)
I believe that these stories together form a separate mythology that predates even erebus and nyx.
sometimes the stories are similar to the regular Greek mythology stories but the names have been changed slightly. Typhon becomes typhoeus. sometimes the names are completely different. Ouranos becomes ophion. and sometimes the names aren't changed at all
