Mythical creatures and monsters are weird in many inconceivable ways...

Cast Appearing[]


  • A desert


Fighter Are we there yet?
Red Mage No.

First we have to go through a forest of doom, and then a desert of despair, and then a swamp of death.
Only then will the Castle of Ordeals show itself to us.
Fighter Oh, that doesn't sound so bad.
Black Mage It's a journey of a hundred miles, on foot, through lands infested with man-eating monsters the likes of which the mind can't comprehend.
Black Mage So please tell me how could it be worse?
Fighter We could be on fire.
Black Mage On fire...
Thief Or drowning.
Fighter Or drowning in fire.
Red Mage Or eaten by a giant worm-golem made from the unliving flesh of a thousand aborted fetuses!
Thief Where would you get an idea like that?
Red Mage Over there.
Said creature gives out a SKREEE! The party gets engulfed in flame.
Fighter Can't breathe!
Red Mage Flames... drowning.
Black Mage Well this is just stupid.
