No doubt I’m missing something obvious so apologies if this is a stupid question.

On the last terminal in Fatum Iustum Stultorum, Durandal says “The Pfhor down on the planet are not defeated yet.”

I always assumed this level took place on the planet (Lh’owon), but this suggests not. If not, where does this level take place?


Thanks..

There's nothing special about it as far as I know.

He is talking about the planet you are still on.

I always assumed he only brought up “down on the planet” because he’d just mentioned carving the title of the level on Lh’owon’s moon. It’s definitely on Lh’owon – that’s Lh’owon’s landscape at the top of the level.

“The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold; we can no longer describe happy man, nor make any celebration of joy.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”

Ah yes, it does make a lot more sense when read in the context of the preceding parts of the terminal around Tycho’s ship on Lh’owon’s inne moon. Never mind me...

Thank you both.
