Red Mage makes a simple question much more difficult than it is...
- The Real Light Warriors' Boat
|Black Mage||Okay, escaping from an alternate reality without knowing how, I can take. But someone's really got to explain this boat.|
|Red Mage||Oh, I can explain how we bent the laws of a dead universe to safely expel us from it!|
|Black Mage||No, I don't care. I accept we're here now. I wish only to know how here got to involve a boat.|
|Red Mage||Although, for the sake of accuracy, I should have said "How I bent the laws of a dead universe."|
|Black Mage||Seriously, I'm over it.|
|Red Mage||It began, as so many things do, with my incredible intellect collecting data without me knowing it.|
|Black Mage||No one cares!|
|Red Mage||The cultists kept prattling about swallowing the world in darkness.|
|Black Mage||Stop talking!|
|Red Mage||Then they shoved us into their own personal realm of an endless darkness.|
|Red Mage||Clearly it was their plan to shove that dimension onto our own.|
|Black Mage||You've been warned thrice.|
|Red Mage||(behind the infinite nothingness) So it was a simple matter of aligning our various chrono-spatially displaced selves so the future-most versions of us pre-empted our past-most selves to create a paradox at the exact moment the cultists were going to summon doom for our world so they got us instead while their dimension swallowed itself and all our previous versions into a logical quandry of nonexistence!|
|Black Mage stabs him on the head with a THUNK!|
|Red Mage||(falling over) Oh dear,|
|Black Mage||How did we get this boat?|
|Thief||We found it parked outside. No one was on board, so it's ours.|
|Black Mage||Thank you.|
|Thief||Also, we took everything the cultists left behind.|
I'm sure it's perfectly safe.
|Black Mage||Oh, of course.|
No ship with mysterious cargo could be in danger.
