Thief NOOOO!
Red Mage
Fighter
Black Mage Geez, what's wrong with you guys?
Sara I've been asking myself that same question ever since I got kidnapped.
Black Mage It's not like I did anything dangerous. All I did was take one little step forward.
Like this!
Black Mage takes a step forward.
Black Mage See? It's perfectly harmless.
Kinda like you guys will be when you're stabbed to death. Er, y'know, for example.

A random encounter is a one in a million chance.

Besides, do you seriously think that monsters can just appear out of nowhere and attack us?

A Giant appears behind Black Mage.
Giant IT'S GONNA CRUSH HIS LITTLE HEART TO LEARN THE TRUTH.
LITERALLY.
Black Mage There isn't even a thematic reason for them to fight us.
Stories are about conflict. So if you expect random battles to occur without rhyme or reason and for them to then have no impact on the story, well then they're completely pointless.
Giant SMASHes Black Mage into the ground with its club.
Black Mage (dazed) ouch...
