Red Mage thinks he can free Fighter from his armoire-y prison.

Cast Appearing[]



Red Mage I know how we can free Fighter from his armoire-y prison! Behold!
A diagram shows the basics of Quantum Fluctuation of Space. Below that is a picture of two very familiar looking quantum physicists.
Red Mage I will simply transfer all of my stat points into my int rating, invent, and master, quantum mechanics, and then construct a device that will redescribe the armoire's weight on a quantum level so we can move it off of Fighter!
Red Mage The experience gained from such a well thought out plan would be astronomical!
Red Mage It's almost too easy.
Thief Yet another work of genius, Red Mage.
White Mage You're a true asset to our cause.
Black Belt Darn that uncertainty principle!
It always gets me lost.
Black Mage I would like to interject some constructive criticism in regards to this alleged plan of yours, RM.
Red Mage By all means!
Black Mage First, and I mean this in all sincerity, you are an idiot.
This plan, much like all your other ones, is unnecessarily complex unto impossibility.
In conclusion, your intellect is lacking and your personal hygiene is poor.
Black Mage I mean, hell, we could probably just tip the damn thing over and Fighter would be--
The cabinet door of the armoire smacks into Black Mage's head. Fighter's head appears in the cabinet.
White Mage Well that was easy.
Red Mage Alas, quantum mechanics plan alpha, the day was not ours.
Fighter Ta-da! Er, sorry 'bout that hit Black Mage.
Black Mage I didn't need all those teeth anyway.
Fighter Ya missed one.


  • Quantum Fluctuation is when the amount of energy in a certain point of space, inadvertently changes and then switches back. Needless to say, it has nothing to do with what Red Mage described.
  • There is a typo in the comic. Criticism is misspelled as Criticsim.
