Red Mage's play goes awry. Again.
- The forest near the Temple of Fiends
|Black Mage||What did you do?|
|Red Mage||I bought us some time. It just worked out to be slightly less time than I had hoped.|
|Red Mage||The idea was that we could delay the final battle until we leveled back up, when actually we'd just ignore Chaos until the heat death of the universe.|
And then, y'know, not our problem.
|Red Mage||But then he argued me down from infinity to 24 hours.|
|Black Mage||That's less than ideal.|
|Red Mage||He had a better bargaining position since he's all-powerful.|
|Black Mage||Excuses, excuses.|
|Thief||Our time would be better spent not arguing with one another for once.|
|Black Mage||Name one thing teamwork ever accomplished.|
|Black Mage||Name one good thing.|
|Thief||The banking system that empowers me with wealth beyond imaging even as it starves you.|
|Red Mage||How is that a good thing?!|
|Black Mage||Oh, fine. Let's work together.|
At the very least we'll prove it's a bad idea.
