Given that time behaves oddly in the Paths of the Dead, your loan
might be due before you even took it out, and interest rates
might fluctuate into the imaginary numbers.  Oops.

Another thought:  Maybe the gods can't actually do anything about the
crisis, but Sethra wanted to warn them about Fyres' soul, just in
case he tried to sell them shares in a mustard mine. 

A few tens of thousands of years wearing a purple robe should teach
him some humility.
