Glint laughs. "Exceptionally so. They stumbled across me eventually, before I was a goddess. In fact, I was at the time petitioning the god I worshipped - Sheogorath, Daedric Prince of Madness - to ask that he take up arms to defend our universe from an existential threat. That threat was Alduin - the final part of the tripartite god Akatosh who rules over time, and who becomes, eventually, the end of time. Alduin, like Akatosh, took the form of an enormous dragon, and he had swayed the dragons of my world - who were Akatosh's creations, originally - to his side as he tried to gain power in our time. He'd come a bit early, you see, and that was making things difficult..."
"Anyways! Difficult it may have been, but Akatosh wasn't being a very big help fighting off his future self, and our gods are terrible at agreeing to do anything. At least two others were trying to use the chaos to cause their own apocalypses, and a third was only refraining 'cause he was still licking his wounds from trying four centuries ago. So - I was going around arguing for an alliance. At least a temporary one."
"Lord Sheogorath, though, was nothing if not mad, and he asked me to complete a challenge, first. He framed it as protecting his realm from an invader, and to do this I'd need to run around merrily reactivating the realm's many decayed defense systems. Easy enough... But apparently madness in the old style makes you a terrible communicator, because what he hadn't revealed - "
"He was not originally Lord Sheogorath. He was, in fact, a different god - Jyggalag, the god of perfect order. He kept trying to force everyone's creative chaos to behave, so several of the other gods stripped his sanity from him, trapping him as a 'weak fool' - Sheogorath, too insane to use his immense powers to any end. Jyggalag didn't like this one bit, and he still lurked at the heart of Sheogorath's madness... And so, every time the destiny of the world grew thing - every time an apocalypse drew close - he tried to break his chains, invading his own realm with the intent of purging all madness from it - and therefore from him."
"Which, well, left our rather ragtag group trying to fight off a god. We won - but something strange happened, you could say."
"I took Sheogorath's divinity - his role, for there must always be a god of madness. Jyggalag became himself again, though a bit more restrained in ambitions this time, and I found myself with a divine realm and a tantalizing amount of power."
"We joined forces with Jyggalag and one other god - Meridia, goddess of infinite energies, which I'm pretty sure is her being poetic about the word 'science.' Meridia had a plan to beat back Alduin, even though we lacked the full force of the pantheon. She believed she could craft a weapon of immense power, which would force Alduin outside of the bounds of reality. Incidentally, it would set whatever plane she launched it from on quite a bit of fire, and it took some time to be set up - only where she'd be firing it from, she couldn't teleport in with it ready to go. So we fought a delaying action, got Meridia lined up... And then got all our squishy members out. It worked rather well! Only tore a very small hole in the fabric of space-time."
