Thief gave his little business to Black Mage, with devastating results...
- Ice Cave
- The Real Light Warriors' Boat
|Red Mage runs around the bloodstained cave, laughing...|
|Red Mage||Yee hee hee hee!|
|Red Mage||Ah ha ha ha!|
|Black Mage||(angrily) What in the damn hell are you doing?|
|Red Mage||Fighter, need to find Fighter,|
|Black Mage||He's over there, I think he's selling him his non-iced armor back.|
|Red Mage||(runs off) Yee hee hee hee!|
|Black Mage||The futility of survival has finally broken his mind.|
|Thief, Fighter, and Red Mage are carrying boxes in the background...|
|Black Mage||It comes as no surprise that I'm unaffected by the utter hopelessness that's choking the life from our frozen bones.|
|Black Mage||Only I possess the determination to face our imminent deaths with dignity.|
|Black Mage||Why, why must one as beautiful as I meet such a fate as this?|
Oh, terrible destiny! Your cold heart has swallowed us!
|Black Mage||Trapped forever in the left ventricle--the least sympathetic of the four chambers--we are without salvation!|
|Figther carries Black Mage out of the cave...|
|Black Mage||What is hell, you ask?|
It is hopeless and this is it, I say!
|Black Mage||(looking around) When did we get a boat?|
|Twenty minutes later...|
|The Real Light Warriors are out in the freezing tundra.|
|The Real Fighter||There's a doomsday cult in the arctic, you said.|
We'll slay them and save the world, you said.
Let's scout around for them, you said.
We won't have to guard the ship, you said.
It's not like there's anyone out here to steal it, you said.
Where's our boat, Barry!
