Fighter puts salt in his eyes.


Cast Appearing[]


In a forest near the cave.
Black Mage Man, what the hell was up with that cave back there?
Thief I don't know, but I didn't con my way into this Light Warrior gig so I could spend my days running from blood rain into a pitch black cave filled with human skulls!
Fighter A cave filled with human skulls, eh?
Red Mage On the bright side, at least the blood rain stopped.
Black Mage and Thief look at Red Mage.
Red Mage Well, it did.
Fighter Now what sort of cave would have human skulls in it?
Black Mage Let's not return to this cave ever again.
Red Mage It will be known to all the world--but mostly just us--as The Cave to Which We Shall Not Ever Return!
Thoughts begin racing through Fighter's head:

...not return to this cave...

Fighters need sword-chucks

Dental plan

Never put salt in your eyes

...The Cave to Which We Shall Not Ever Return...

Armor of Invincibility
Fighter Guys! This is it! This is the Cave of No Return! We found it!
Black Mage Well, yeah. That's what we've been talking about this whole time. Welcome to the conversation. Glad you could make it.
Fighter We have to go back there!
Black Mage Yeah, we'll get right on that.

So let's get as far from this cave as humanly possible and never come back.
