Tales of the Prime
With so many gods and spirits from a former world, there are equally many stories of life in the Prime. Most are fanciful and impossible, describing a place where man could cross nations in a day upon sorcerous devices, and wars where even the lowliest soldier struck at foes with divine lightning. Most such stories, unfortunately, are severely lacking in specifics. No nations are named, nor any places or people, save those that escaped to Deutero. If the gods themselves remember, they have told no-one.
Spirits have expressed distress and confusion at the haze over their memories of mortal life in the Prime, and opinions differ over the reason for this loss. Oft stated is that when the Prime dissolved into the Maelstrom, so too did its history and knowledge. Only by the will of the gods did mere fragments survive. The subject is of particular interest to servants of Ganne, Silai and Lyriasha. This is a point of conflict between the Silai and Lyriasha's faithful; Silai's sharing of knowledge against Lyriasha's covetous secrecy.
A separatist cult of Ganne called the Preservers aims to work in concert with a group of spirits of wisdom and memory to best recreate the works of the Prime in Deutero. They disdain innovation and creativity, seeing these as dangerous and destructive traits - perhaps the very same that led to the end of the Prime. Their goal is to restore only what was, and to create any more than that is heresy. With how fractured and vague stories of the Prime are, most of their work goes into gathering and cross-referencing them to extract what solid facts they can.
