He did reveal how many (and the names of) the Greater Gods, but left many of the lesser Gods out of the roll-call. There was never a number of lesser Gods revealed, though it was hinted that it was over a hundred and there presently being less than half of that.
Not sure where you read that KiwiBird, but that's not correct. The remaining lesser and greater gods banded together to lock away the Mad God who started the war.
Like i said feist has a habit of contradicting himself. It was definitely mentioned (i think in the presence of nakor) that the current situation is no more than a grand trick by some god, that deceived everyone into believing the situation as mentioned by you. It was during one of those random supposedly grand and difficult too understand conversations where they ponder about the universe as it is.
