While I understand this sentiment, I don't agree with it. Although the physics of the world exists because we say it does, if it isn't consistent then the players can't reasonably rely on it. After all, protagonists are plot devices, not actors. The actors are the people playing them.

I'm settled to the fact that there's no answer provided. It's readily worked out, I just wanted to know if it's ever actually been addressed.
A mathematician, a scientist, and an engineer are asked: "Say you define a tail as a leg. How many legs does a horse have?" The mathematician says, "5." The scientist, "1." The engineer, "You can't do that!"

I think a cool story would be that the colony collapse problem with honeybees was part of an advanced plan for the invasion. Now they’re on the verge of extinction and it’s up to Storm Knights to find a way to save them (maybe allied with sympathetic Edeinos or Lanala herself).
