Cast Appearing[]


  • Bikke's Pirate ship


Bikke How could this have happened to me crew? Yar.
Garland I told you they were tricky. But did you listen? No.
"Nine vs. four? That's three to one in our favor. Yar."
Let me tell you, I find your math to be highly suspect.
Fighter and Black Mage climb up onto the deck.
Fighter C'mon, BM!
Black Mage Touch me and die.
Bikke But how! Yar, how could these Light Warriors have defeated a full nine fierce pirates?
Fighter Oh, technically, Mr. Pirate Sir, we didn't really--

(out of frame) YAAAAAAA-Dangit, gotta make a climb check to get up there... blast it all! I failed! Must wait until next turn to retry with a frustration penalty!

Fighter So anyway, like I was sayin'...
What really defeated your band of pirates was, in fact-
Red Mage (out of frame) Ah-ha! Made it! Ahem. YAAAAAAAR! ... man, this ship is big...


Red Mage charges from the left and smacks into Fighter, who falls into the ocean with a SPLOOSH!
Red Mage Er, what he was going to say is that we did, indeed, beat your stupid pirates and that we, therefore, deserve all the experience.
Black Mage Heh. Looks like it's hard to swim with armor.
Black Mage looks at Fighter at the bottom of the ocean.
Black Mage Give my regards to the bottom of the ocean, sinky!
Fighter Burble!
Cut to Thief.
Thief Meanwhile, I grow more rich on the tragedy of "nutinally" induced scurvy! They are... suckers!
