Well, that was unexpected.
- The forest near the Temple of Fiends
|Chaos||Although, technically, when I say Sarda is "here", I mean just his body, which has become a portal into this world for me.|
|Red Mage||I gotta be honest. My hope was that this whole Chaos thing was going to turn out to be like a metaphor.|
|Black Mage||Are you kidding?|
This is great for us!
|Black Mage||Or just me and not you guys.|
Which is even better, really!
|Black Mage||Loyal servant of Chaos Black Mage, reporting for duty, oh Great Lord of Evil.|
|Black Mage||May I suggest my first act be to herald your emergence in this doomed world with the slaughter of these three jerks?|
|Chaos||No, I'll just use my supergod powers to lock the souls of all living things on this plane in the eternal torment of the darkness between worlds.|
|Black Mage||Does that include me?|
|Black Mage||Pretty sure we have to kill Chaos, guys.|
|Thief||It's good to have you on the team.|
