Besides it being completely "non-Glorantha-sounding" IMO, I am not objecting at all. I'm NOT suggesting changing it or not using it - I just wanted to know what it meant and/or where it came from. (The Thirty Years War wasn't even mentioned in pre-college classes IME in the US - to continue to flog that dead horse.)
