“"Listen to me, you innocent little priest. Sometimes there has to be a war. Things go too far for words. There’s… other forces. Now… go back to your people." …
What the gods said was heard by each combatant in his own language, according to his own understanding. It boiled down to:
I. This is Not a Game.
II. Here and Now, You are Alive.”
Small Gods, Terry Pratchett
