- The Temple of Fiends' Backyard
|Now exiting the|
TEMPLE OF FIENDS.
Have a nice day!
|Thief||(out of frame) Finally. This damn vat must weigh a ton.|
|Red Mage||(out of frame) Really? I hadn't noticed thanks to a little manipulation of my stats.|
|The next frame shows Red Mage and Thief carrying the vat of Mountain Dew.|
|Thief||Well anyway, it looks like we found the Backyard of Fiends. This is as good a place as any to dump the Dew.|
|Red Mage||Are you sure that's such a good idea? I mean, what about the ecological ramifications of introducing this filth into the local habitat?|
|Thief||As it so happens, RM I have a theory on that very subject. Care to hear it?|
|Red Mage||By all means, I insist that you elucidate further on this subject.|
|Thief||Well, the way I see it, nature is a delicate balance of biological energy originally derived from the Sun.|
Introducing mechanical energy into that balance tips the scales.
|Thief||When that happens, ecological devastation soon follows.|
|Red Mage||That's bad.|
|Thief||but if we do away with the Dew, our contribution to the mechanical rape of the land on a global scale is next to nothing.|
|Red Mage||Thief. I hereby pronounce your theory to be a +5/+5 Theory of Enlightenment.|
What're we waiting for!
|Red Mage and Thief pour the contents of the vat onto the ground, which burns the surrounding area.|
|Thief||(out of frame) Ahhh. Do you smell that?|
|Red Mage||(out of frame) That horrible burning smell?|
|Thief||(out of frame) No, the smell of not having to lug that damn heavy vat of gunk around anymore.|
|Red Mage||(out of frame) Sorry, I can't get past the burning.|
|Thief||Of course, there is a small chance that even our seemingly negligible contribution would be the final straw.|
|In the distance, Black Mage throws the petrified Black Belt into the hole in the ground made by the Dew.|
|Black Mage||Rot, you miserable bastard!|
|Red Mage and Thief spot Black Mage.|
