So the deities all know that it's best not to do anything. The "laws" that keep deities from directly intervening are not written down or enforced by "deity police" as much as they are just the deities understanding that this is the way it is. Now and then, a deity does go against these laws and the results tend to be significant.
Were the restrictions on deities ability to intervene in the mortal world or cross borders and kill other divine beings set in place due some past event? Or were these laws put up over time and for other reasons?
By restrictions, I meant acts like Desna killing of the demon Lord Aolar. Desna supposedly broke some laws or pacts to do so.
Oh! So it's more like a cold war stand off.
Is the war that had Rovagug sealed away and that other deities died in, an example of when such an understanding breaks down?
