Thief That's no eclipse. That's a sub-orbital giant strike!
Everyone looks at the arrow sticking in Red Mage's hat, now on fire. Red Mage is now wearing the hat.
Thief And he's homing in on that!
Red Mage What, my lucky arrow?
Thief Yes, and if I'm right, then we've only seconds to act!
Red Mage I told you to let me master time magic, but no.
Thief runs up to Red Mage, knocking over Black Mage in the process.
Thief No one cares about your idiotic time magic scheme, Red Mage.
Just toss the arrow and pray that we merely get massive indirect damage instead of being totally obliterated.
Black Mage (falling over) G'hey!
Red Mage And lose an arrow for no reason?
What if I find a bow later and I wanted to shoot it?
I think not.
Thief lunges for the arrow and handstands over Red Mage, taking the arrow out of the hat at the same time while a giant plummets towards the ship out of the sky.
Giant (looking through binoculars) TARGET ACQUIRED
Thief lands on Fighter's head with the arrow in his hand.
Giant SQUISHING WILL BE IMMINENT.
As the giant gets closer, Thief lunges to the right with the arrow.
Giant I WOULDN'T MIND IT SO MUCH IF THE FALL WASN'T JUST LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO CONTEMPLATE THE ETHICAL IMPLICATIONS OF BEING USED AS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION.
