New update.

Thatch has "lived" through six of these cycles already? That is interesting. Maybe the order Maynard wants to create isn't very stable.
Additionally there is the fact that Aly clearly did get some form of power from her "dead" goddess. How does that work? And what caused the war that led to a third of the alignments being unrepresented by divine forces?

Does the cycle serve to keep the world going? Does it prevent the return of the deities of chaos? Either way breaking it should lead to interesting times.
