Hold up. An elf who doesn't believe in dragons? There's obviously something wrong with that...

Cast Appearing[]



Sarda You must now travel to the Isles of Cardia.
Red Mage Wait, wait, wait. Hold the phone.
Sarda Radio.
Red Mage Whatever.
Cardia is a den of dragons.
Thief Bah.
Thief I don't believe in dragons. They're nothing more than the externalization of society's fears.
These phantoms are nothing but a way for unjust rulers to turn a population against its own interests.
To convince them their safety against nonexistent threats is a greater concern than their liberty. It works in Elf Land.
Black Mage But you've seen dragons. One made out of fire ate Red Mage.
Thief Yeah, other than the real ones, I don't believe in dragons.
Red Mage Still, Black Mage raises an excellent point. We're edible.
That's pretty rotten motivation for us to go there.
Sarda I could say it's your destiny. That the fate of the world is written with your every deed.
Or I could inform you that the ship is on autopilot and I'll fill your lungs with taffy if you mess with it.
Thief Well, if you're going to put it that way.
Red Mage He has a way with words.
Black Mage I always wanted to die in Cardia.
Fighter (staring at a shiny red button, with AUTOPILOT SHUT OFF VALVE (button)) You know what I heard? Free taffy!
