Dragoon explains the secret of his jumping ability.
|Dragoon||The secret of my jumping technique is an ancient technique. Also, a secret.|
|Red Mage||See? That explains itself!|
|Thief||Or, alternately, it doesn't explain a goddamned thing.|
|Red Mage||No, not actually, but details aren't important. |
Could be an ancient pact made with the spirits of the air.
|Dragoon||Nope! No, wait, that's it exactly. |
In an age long past, a horrible race of pointy-eared jerks ruled all the world with their army of dragons.
|Thief||They sound sympathetic. And handsome.|
|Dragoon||No one could oppose them. No one until a warrior--|
|Thief||Besought the very spirits of the air, yadda yadda, now the jumping.|
|Dragoon||Skipping the epic history parts, yes, that's accurate.|
|Red Mage||So what happened? Why are you the last?|
|Dragoon||Jumping a thousand feet into the air to put a spear through the throat of a dragon isn't as safe as it sounds. Sure, ethereal forces guide you unerringly to your target, but dragons have claws, fire, and a lot of evil.|
|Fighter||No way, a dragon gave us superpowers. It's great!|
