Please, don't tempt me to provide you with 4K of the one, and 10K of the other. ;-)

I was going to suggest perhaps that one could carry about a more-or-less - -theistic quest relating to Vith's Young Turk aspects (I dunno if they'd have the explicit Age construction familiar from classic theism?), but that if you want to 'reach' his latter-day aspect, you get in a boat, climb up his island to his house, and have a cup of tea and chat philosophy -- i.e., he acts (as it were) more like a sage than a god.

Th'art kind.

Greg's stated that their 'mysticism' is why they weren't reachable by theistic means. But you could poke several holes in that, I know. (Left as an exercise for the reader.)
