Stabbing an evil wizard through the heart: a common tabletop fantasy genre cliché.

Cast Appearing[]


  • Red Mage's "A-Hole"


Black Mage You were just talking about how we need to work together!
Red Mage And now we're working together to kill you.
Black Mage Dammit, Fighter, I just tricked you into being friends again!
Fighter I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attention and then everyone was all action pose!
What's up?
Black Mage They're trying to kill me!
Fighter (going to Black Mage's side) That's a shame.
Red Mage But we have a good reason!
Fighter (back to Red Mage's side) Sorry, Black Mage, but you heard the man.
Black Mage "A good reason" isn't a good reason at all!
Red Mage We need to use your heart.
Black Mage So do I!
It moves my blood around.
Red Mage Not if we kill you!
Black Mage That's distressingly logical.
Red Mage You're a nexus of destructive force.

And that's been amplified by the hate and evil you absorbed from your doppelganger and the fiends.
At the center of it all is your heart: a mass of pure malevolence for all that lives.
Black Mage I've only been saying that for years now.
Red Mage Unleashing its power may be enough to destroy Sarda completely.
Black Mage Suddenly, living in your A-Hole forever doesn't seem so bad.
