Deneir believes that the metatext contains all information, but that doesn't have to be true and even if it is, Deneir is only studying it so he could only provide information through his song if he allready aquired it by himself.
But even then its very hard for mortals to comprehend the information given by the song of deneir and many of his priest died while diving to deep into it, so Cadderly could die too if he tries to hard.

As said before its very hard to believe that a lesser deity can give his follower far more power then major ones can.



We have canon to support the idea that the chosen of Lesser deities can be just as powerful as the chosen of Greater deities. Consider Paul Kemp's books. Mask was never a Greater deity, but he had 5 Chosen, and the most powerful of them (Erevis Cale) proved equal in power to Rivalen (Chosen of Shar and 2,000 year old archmage).

Also, Matron Yvonnel Baenre was as powerful as any cleric we've seen, and Lolth was only an Intermediate deity while Yvonnel was alive. Obould (Chosen of Gruumsh), on the other hand, wasn't very powerful considering Gruumsh's status as a Greater deity. Pretty much every Chosen we've seen would defeat Obould.

We've even seen examples (like with Mask and Mystra) where gods have several Chosen, who vary considerably in power level. And herein lies the answer to our question. Mask made his first Chosen (Kesson Rel) a demigod. But since Kesson went insane and became a giant headache, Mask never gave another Chosen that much power.

So I think it depends on the deity. Some deities are more trusting than others, so they might be willing to give more power. Or if deities have particularly urgent designs in the mortal realm, they might give their followers more power to carry out their plans.
