Sometimes the best solution is just to give Fighter what he wants.





FighterBut I wanna be a Light Warrior!
Black MageYou're not going to shut up about this, are you?
Black MageFine, tell you what. If you can convince two complete strangers to join us on a suicide mission to rid the world of evil, then sure, we'll apply for the Light Warrior job.
FighterGoody goody gumdrops!
Black MageBut if you can't find two other hardy souls ready to die a gruesome and painful death at the hands of insane goblins and ogres for no good reason, then we never talk about this Light Warrior crap again. Agreed?
FighterWe're gonna be Light Warriors! Weeeeeeeeee!
Black MageMeanwhile, I'll go beat the day lights out of that old man. He can't be that tough.
FighterShouldn't we meet back soon? Otherwise, the position might be taken!
Black MageYeah, we wouldn't want that to happen.

Ahem. I mean, yeah. We'll meet back here in one hour.

FighterThat oughta be just enough time to round up some brave do-gooders!
Black Mage walks away.
Black MageHeh. He actually thinks he'll find someone who wants to join us. I'm sure he'll just waste his time browsing at a weapons shop anyway. Besides, he's too stupid to get into trouble, so I've got nothing to worry about…
Fighter approaches the weapons shop.
FighterHm, where to start? Maybe at yon local weapons shop...
Thief's bush shuffles up and he pops out in front of Fighter.
