Red Mage doesn't explain what the thumping sound is...
- Bikke's Pirate Ship, Aldi Sea
|Red Mage||I wouldn't worry about it. Fanged death from the sea is quite routine.|
|Black Mage||Routine. I see. Pretend for a moment that I'm your typical conjurer of dark arts.|
|Black Mage||And, as a result, have about as much business on a sea going vessel as a pretty unicorn princess.|
|Black Mage||Thank you, now-- Wait!

|Red Mage||Well, the resemlence is remarkable, actually.|
|Black Mage||Just get on with it!|
|Black Mage||Explain, in simple terms, how "fanged death from the depths" could ever be routine.|
|Red Mage||Well, first, it's a bit misleading to refer to the Aldi Sea as "the depths" since it is an extremely shallow body of water.|

|Black Mage||SHUT UP!|

|Red Mage||Tsk. There's no need to yell.|
