Fighter's secretly a genius.

Cast Appearing[]



Fighter I know how we can survive!
Black Mage Don't tell me.
Black Mage You want us to flip upside-down because you think the Earth will flip with us and we'll gently touch down at the "apex" of our "fall".
Fighter No, we--
Black Mage --Mime like we're walking downstairs until we reach the ground floor?
Fighter No, all we have to--
Black Mage --Do is hold our breath and float to the ground like four balloons?
Fighter That's good, but no. Me and Thief hold on to you and Red Mage, and then you guys cast feather fall!
Thief Wait. That's not stupid.
Red Mage Brilliant, in fact.
There's a problem, but it's an easy fix.
Red Mage You'll have to double cast it on yourself, Black Mage.
I used up all my spells back there.
Black Mage Yeah, about that.
Black Mage Remember back when I had those wonderful tendrils made of evil?
And how they could do anything?
Maybe you could understand why one would dump all non-apocalyptic spells given that advantage.
Eh heh?
Red Mage Goddammit, Black Mage
