Black Mage pretends to bluff....and fails.
- The forest near the Temple of Fiends
|Black Mage||Well, Sarda, you did it.|
|Black Mage||You built us up, made us into warriors of legend.|
|Black Mage||But now?|
We're demoralized, de-leveled, and defeated.
And it was all you.
|Black Mage||Yes, your victory over us is so vast, so complete that killing us would be a waste of time.|
|Black Mage||Letting us live out our natural lives in the lowly state we now find ourselves in would be the ultimate form of revenge.|
|Black Mage||Yessir. Long lives of misery.|
Now that's a revenge worth waiting billions of years to exact. Yup.
|Black Mage||Isn't that right, guys?|
|Red Mage||I dunno. Seems to me you wait that long, you want to see some blood.|
|Black Mage's eyes shrink.|
|Black Mage||(to Red Mage) Shut.|
|Black Mage||(leering menacingly at Red Mage) Ahahaha!|
Gut you myself.
He's joking, of course.
