Created by the birthless, and the first of his kind, Aspel gave names to many of the concepts, feelings, and practices of mortals and birthless alike. For a time, while still new at his job he had minimal issues sharing knowledge with all who sought it, and it is because of this that a variety of creatures on Cavus have a level of intelligence higher than those of earth. It wasn't until after mortals started to use their knowledge to destroy one another that Aspel began to withhold things, later vowing to limit his interactions with mortals to a minimum.
He forced his siblings Bask and Carra to follow that same vow, which became all the more difficult when the mortals would seek them out. To facilitate this constant pursuit of the gods and their abilities, Aspel created a form of communication called prayer, a one-way form of communication between mortals and gods. In doing this, the gods could gain more information and layout paths for those who sought their help without giving away too much information right away.
Aspel created a magical book, in this book, all events past, present, and future are recorded. Aspel himself can't read all of the pages, as doing so will alter them, thus altering his future and the others around him. Mortals, on the other hand, have the ability to read the future so long as their actions were predetermined to learn their future from the book. They can do this only once, and any mortal who has ever tried has gone blind after witnessing the prophecy they were born to tell.
This one is simple, see if you can figure it out for an idea on the next lore piece.
