The Light Warriors plan to kill the Giant off.
|Black Mage and Thief are still out of it.|
|Red Mage||(to Fighter) Okay, now let me make sure I've got this straight.|
We're up against a giant who has managed to take out 50% of our team with little effort.
And now you and I have to brainstorm an ingenious plan of attack.
|Sara||(Zoom-up) Ahem. I am here too, y'know. I could help with your little attack plan.|
Seems like you need the help, really...
|Red Mage||Please, Princess Sara. The Light Warriors are talking now.|
|Sara||(Zoom-up, facing away with an annoyed look) You'd better hope to whatever God you follow that this giant kills you before I have the chance to do it more painfully.|
|Fighter||Did you say something, Princess Sara?|
|Sara||(Smiling to Fighter) Oh heavens no.|
What could I possibly contribute to your man-talk.
|Dark clouds are gathering behind Princess Sara.|
|Sara||(Zoom-up, aside again) Other than logic, reason, and a clear and decisive path to certain victory, but I'm sure you nimrods have enough testosterone to headbutt your way through to something not entirely unlike success.|
|Red Mage||So. Any thoughts, Fighter?|
|Fighter thinks for a while.|
|Fighter||That's a trick question, right?|
|Sara looks annoyed. Again.|
|Red Mage||A trick question?|
|Red Mage||That's brilliant! Somethimes I think your massive intelligence penalties are so immense that they fold in upon themselves and transform into stat bonuses!|
|Fighter||Well, I don't like to brag...|
|Red Mage||I hope this giant has the name of a good doctor. A giant one. 'Cause I'm about to put the hurt on.|
|Sara||We are so doomed.|
|Red Mage||No, wait. Change my taunt to, "I hope this giant's insurance is all paid up, 'cause it's thwacky time!"|
|Sara||"Thwacky time"? Do you listen to yourself?|
|Giant||I DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP IN THIS ONE, AND THEY'RE GOING TO KILL ME OFF ALREADY? LAAAAME.|
