Steve's reward…of nothing useful.


Cast Appearing[]


King Steve Well done, boys. Princess Sara tells me that you, more or less, rescued her. I'll have to take her word on that...
Then again I have to take her word that I have a daughter named Sara and that she is her.
Sara Oh dad.
King Steve Nevertheless, I'm sure you boys are really looking forward to your ridiculously extravagant reward, am I right?
Thief Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes!
Red Mage
Black Mage
King Steve Well have I got a reward for you!
It's going to take all the money in the treasury to do it, but you guys deserve it!
Cut to the Cornerian Channel, with a bridge across it.
King Steve I'll build a bridge!
we've been meaning to do it for ages, but now we've got a good excuse!
Black Mage What.
King Steve A bridge to Prontera. it's about time, really, we've been neighbors with them for 500 years now and I've never dropped by to say hello.
Sara Dad, you haven't been to Prontera because 500 years ago king Joe exiled everyone whose name started with the letter "P", or "P-ans." With nowhere to go, they swam the Cornernian Channel, where many of them died, and then formed the Kingdom of Pronterra. A bridge has never been built because they hate us and they'd take it as an insult to those who died in that exodus.
King Steve Ohhhh, so that's where we get the famous Cornerian curse. Ahem: "I hope you drown where you're a P-an."
Sara No, Dad. I'm afraid that the curse you're thinking of has a much more literal and much less metaphorical history attached to it.
Fighter I don't get it. Where would I be European? I was born here.
Black Mage Okay, but seriously, that whole bridge thing was just a joke... right?
