Thief enters negotiations with a dragon.
- Sky Castle
|Thief||I'd like to make an offer.|
|Muffin||That's precious. What could you possibly have to offer me?|
|Muffin||HA! I like you, elf.|
|Thief||Look, it's a simple matter of history and pattern recognition.|
|Lich, Kary, and Ur appear behind Thief.|
|Thief||There are four orbs. We've come across three of them. Each was guarded by an incredibly powerful being that far out-classed us. We killed them. We killed them all. The King of Death, the Queen of Fire, and a monster who eats universes or something. I was never too clear on that.|
Anyway, you've got that fourth orb.
Now, I'm not saying we're going to kill you. Hell, I don't even know how we'd do it.
I am saying that monsters with orbs have a way of dying when we're around them. Maybe it's fate?
But maybe it doesn't have to come to that. Maybe we can talk things out. Who knows?
|Muffin||You'll be the first to die, you know.|
