From Phil’s dialogue here, I… gather he was having some second thoughts about Penk’s design. I mean, I don’t think the helmet is that bad, on its own!

It is true that something about it looks vaguely wrong, but that’s reflective of the difference between Penk’s true personality and the persona he’s trying to project: the troll who doubts versus the demigod who leads. Over time, they will become one, but that hasn’t happened yet, at least not as much as he wants to believe it has.

And there’s other ways in which his beliefs are colliding with reality. The good news, Penk: you live in a world where your god is provably real! The bad news: POLYTHEISM, BABY.
