The Elnean Scrolls
The Elnean scrolls have been transmitted from priest to priest down since the early early days before the migrations. They contain a body of lore and knowledge that was collected and collated during the foundation of the High Worship as a singular religion in approximately 650 CE. They are mostly the work of Jalon Renael, one of the clerics of Whitegrove who worked dilignetly to bring the High Worship to fruition. As such they are also called Renael's Scrolls or the Renael Script.
The Elnean scrolls contain the myth-cycles of Elneas since the beginning. They include such accounts as the creation fo the world by Nyxea and Saetus and the defeat of these two ancient gods by Elneas and his wife Gyneth. The Kin-gods, the children of Elneas and Gyneth, appear infrequently in the Reneal Scripts, as these ancient stories focus mostly on the King and Queen of Earth and Sky.
"Saetus, the Void, and Nyxea, the Night, were the only things then in all the world. Together they were ancient, more ancient than the Way of the Dead, or any other path in this our world. Lo, Nyxea who reared her children gave birth unto our hope and our Lord, Elneas the King; it was known that he would be a king from his very birth. And lo, for Saetus gave form to his children but ate them, yet Gyneth the Queen who was his child was too cunning for him and she pretended to be stillborn from the womb of the darkness and convinced her brother to do the same. When Saetus came to toss them into the voids, they rose up and they battered him down. Thus did Elneas the King and Gyneth the Queen come together and when they saw one another they were smitten with joy, for their matrimony was prophesyed in the stars."
