Red Mage comes up with a plan that's bound to work.
- Temple of Fiends - Dungeon
First Mention Of
- Red Mage's Stat Swapping
|Red Mage||Okay. So we know that Garland is so evil and powerful that we don't stand a chance against him in a head-on attack.|
|Red Mage||Therefore I propose the following: rather than waiting for our eventual and painful demise, we surprise attack Garland the very instant he returns!|
|Thief||That's all well and good, RM, but we haven't much time before the fiend gets back!|
|Red Mage||That's where my astounding collection of stats, feats, bonuses, and specialization come into play. I shall develop a brilliant plan of attack through a mere roll of the dice!|
|Fighter||This plan of his best involve me and swords and hitting people with the swords.|
|Black Mage||And just how do you propose to do that?|
I thought all these alleged 'stats' of yours were geared toward combat and magic, not thinking.
|Red Mage||So true, BM. So true. Thus, I must invoke the most hallowed and powerful art know to my secret cabal...|
|Thief||So far I'd have to bet it's the power of being stupid.|
|Red Mage||It is known among my kind as...|
THE RITE OF STAT SWAP!
By simply altering my other stats, I can channel their points into my intelligence score, thus making me phenomenally smart!
|Red Mage scribbles on his character sheet.|
|Black Mage||We're as good as dead.|
