Our story leads into a scene from Leachtric’s introduction to heartsword training.

Artemisia: The weapon inside you is stronger than anything forged by smiths, or even conjured by magical girls.

Different members of the audience see it differently.

For instance, Kale sees something like this . . .

Artemisia: That said . . .

. . . while to Thorn it looks more like this.

Gerri (flashback): . . . it’s not a substitute for actual swordfighting skills, so if you slack on those we’ll kick you out.

Glad to see some input was (implied to be) taken from actual heartsword techniques/training doctrine instead of just being made up for dramatic effect.

It’s the same with any advanced weapons system, same reason every Marine is a rifleman. Your system can be amazing, but good luck if your user sucks at the basics.

Silly thought: Perhaps “The weapon inside you is stronger than anything forged by smiths, or even conjured by magical girls. It is not a substitute for actual swordfighting skills, so if you slack on those we’ll kick you out.” is part of the Order of the Chalice’s version of the Rifleman’s Creed.
