I congratulate you. At last
peace reigns in the heart of man. At last war is but a word whose
meaning fades from our understanding. At last, we are whole. Librians,

| Gun Kata Speech
The Gun Katas. through analysis of thousands of recorded
gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of
antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element.
The Gun Kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid
position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on
the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the
statistically traditional trajectories of return fire.
