The fact that Fighter, Thief, and Red Mage suddenly vanished must obviously mean something's wrong.

Cast Appearing[]



Mrr'grt stands over the Pit of Doom (Watch your step!)
Mrr'grt Look upon our dark master from beyond the stars and know that your lives are nothing, Warriors of Light!
L'zlhe I don't think they can hear you down there. The echo is pretty bad.
Mrr'grt Really?
Mrr'grt Bet I could spit on one.
Thief Battle positions, go!
The team drew their weapons, except Black Mage, who was throwing up...
Black Mage Ah, man. I've got, ugh, y'know when you're going to throw up and your mouth gets watery. I've got that now.
Thief It's here! It's... the worst thing imaginable. I know that all my life has been a waste.
Red Mage Thief?! Thief!
Thief vanishes...
Red Mage Okay, don't panic, what is this thing?

It's taking apart my mind at a conceptual level.

There's no limit to its nothingness.

I can't... there's no stats for it.
Red Mage Fighter, don't look at it!
Red Mage (fading) So beautiful... they should have sent a bard...
Red Mage vanishes...
Fighter Don't look at what?
Fighter Oh.
Fighter vanishes...
Black Mage Okay, I think it passed.

Urgh, I swear I could taste it there for a second. Ugh!
