Red Mages develops the idea of cold fusion, but the team thinks its stupid.
- Unnamed tundra
|Red Mage||I honestly wonder what you guys would do without me.|
|Black Mage||(thinking) Enjoy life?|
|Red Mage||Not only did I devise a method to save our lives using the meager resources available...|
But I was immediately able to adapt these plans to the temporary loss of Fighter.
|Fighter||I think the cold has slowed the liberal flow of my blood.|
|Black Mage||Yeah, it's also going to give us hypothermia unless Captain Big Mouth gets to the point.|
|Black Mage||Or do you plan to keep us alive by exposing us to your particular brand of hot air?|
|Black Mage||Oh man, that's a classic.|
I pity whomever I'm with the next time I'm freezing to death.
|Black Mage scribbles his little quip on a piece of note paper.|
|He continues to scribble.|
|Black Mage||"...of hot air." Okay, go on.|
So, based on the principle of hot air being hot, as Black Mage alluded to, I took it upon myself to investigate the source of hot air as a concept.
|Red Mage||Long, brilliant story of analytical genius short: Heat comes from energy. the greatest source of energy is fusion.|
|Red Mage||So, in a stunning leap of mental power, I constructed our own fusion generator out of what I could find.|
|Thief||There's nothing but ice for thousands and thousands of miles.|
|Red Mage||How else do you propose to create cold fusion?|
