KEVYN: Reverend, I need advice.
REVEREND THEO: Seek to have a spiritual experience, and then seek to understand it.
REVEREND THEO: But that probably isn't the advice you're looking for.
KEVYN: What do you think King Lota will do with a system that could be used to completely destroy Credomar?
REVEREND THEO: Hmmm...
REVEREND THEO: I don't think Lota will destroy Credomar with it. He's had that ability ever since he took the Stationwaist, and look! Credomar remains undestroyed.
REVEREND THEO: A typical battleplate has three annie plants. Credomar has eighteen. Sure, they're only half the size of a battleplate's plants, but quantity has to count for something.
Here... have an aphorism: "Know a tree by the fruit it bears."
If Lota really wanted to destroy Credomar, why hire you to build a half-baked method? Lota already sits on enough firepower to scrape the crust off of a planet.
KEVYN: That's... actually a really good point.
KEVYN: I think you may have convinced me to feel... I don't know... peace?
KEVYN: Yeah... peace. I am building a potential superweapon for somebody who can already scrape the crust off of a planet, and I am at peace.
KEVYN: Thanks, Reverend.
REVEREND THEO: *thought bubble* "... and then seek to understand it."
