Despite not being the sharpest tools in the shed, Red Mage is adding Stake Summoner to his list of feats while Fighter plays Harvest Moon. I won't even go into what's happening to Black Mage.

Cast AppearingEdit



Thief and Red Mage are still arguing in front of Vilbert's house.
ThiefLet's reassess the situation. Black Mage, our heavy artillery, is out.
Shift to Black Mage, standing in front of the darkness waving his hands around.
Black MageYeah, sword-chucks. Yeah!
It'd be just like having two swords, but you could wield them both with one hand.
And there's the added benefit of having no control over either of them!
Of course it's a great idea, it all makes sense to me now.
I was a fool to ever doubt it. A bumbling fool, I tell you!
ThiefFighter, our meatshield, is otherwise occupied.
Shift to Fighter now, standing in front of a cattle field, trying to attract the cows to approach the fence.
FighterI just need two cows to be impaled and set on fire.
C'mon, just step forward to volunteer.
Okay, just mill around aimlessly to volunteer. Thanks!
ThiefAnd your idiotic gambit failed miserably.
Red MageIt's not my fault he failed to recognize my genius.
Red MageI find that often happens when you work on as many levels as I do.
Beat panel. Thief looks down in silence.
ThiefYeah.... I'm sure that's something like a problem for you...
Red MageIndeed. Unfortunately for Vilbert, I'm going to have to get significantly more blunt.
ThiefBut we're really more of a sword and knife group.
Red Mage(Zoom up) That we are, Thief. But that won't be a problem. We're fighting a vampire, so we need to drive a stake through its heart.
Red Mage(Raising arms) We need only call upon the mightiest stake in all the land!
