There once was a story told by Jacob about the town that deserved Asaral's wrath. This was not a good town. The people were incredibly selfish and constantly harmed each other and the neighboring lands. Eventually, they created a weapon that could obliterate the other towns so that they could take what they wanted. The Prayer weapon allowed the town, in unison, to contact one of the Elder Demons and channel his power to their weapon. Upon praying, the weapon failed in a catastrophic explosion and the entire town was wiped out.
When Death came to them and saw how they were, he sent Asaral to mete out punishment. What answered their prayers was not what they wanted but what they deserved.
