Re: Source of power for the Cthrag Yaska
the sardion had always been hidden. worshipped by primitive karands (well even more primitive karands) and kept hidden in a grotto.
As to their power... the sheer scale of the power of the gods alone was always such that none of them (even torak) would have confronted eachother directly. The Orb and the Sardion being even more powerful therefore would hvae had to resolve issues realting to their respective destinies through Chosen Ones...
