  • The forest near the Temple of Fiends


Thief Oh please. I've had enough of Red Mage's blathering about levels and classes and spell-like abilities and stats.
Thief We're the same gang of amoral jerks we've always been.
Thief Observe as I do a fancy ninja flip and evade this whole Chaos business.
Thief trips over.
Black Mage Did you just trip over your own elf booties?
Thief No! I couldn't have.
It um, there was a rock! A vine. A prehensile double-entangler vine.
Red Mage Let's just do what we always do: Stand behind Fighter while he makes things die.
Black Mage Yeah, you can't de-level swordsmanship out of him.
He's way too dumb to forget it.
Cut to Fighter with sword stuck to head.
Fighter Why I hurt?
Red Mage Maybe there's a side to this we haven't considered yet.
Red Mage Maybe eternal torment is fun
Black Mage That's your alternative?
Red Mage That's all we have left.
