Pyro, you been writin' letters to other dimensions?
— The Engineer
True Meaning is a comic released on December 13, 2011, to coincide with the release of Australian Christmas 2011. The original comic can be found here.
The comic begins with the Engineer reading a book called "The Story of Australian Christmas" to the Pyro. As they gaze outside of the Engineer's window, they happen to identify an object heading directly towards them. The object, which resembles a crash-landed rocket seen before in "Grordbort's Crash", collides with the Engineer's house.
The rocket contains "space guns", according to the Engineer, and among the weapons is a Phlogistinator, which the Pyro picks up. There is a note inside the rocket as well, explaining the weapons were sent by entities from another dimension.
