Red Mage has a plan: to get mauled to near-death by werewolves.
|Thief||You better know what you're doing, Red Mage.|
|Red Mage||I make it my business to know what I'm doing!|
|Black Mage||That doesn't even make sense.|
|Red Mage||How can I tell them I failed my int check to make up a witty retort?
Answer:: I do not!
The point is we cannot defeat these werewolves with standard tactics.
|Black Mage||Put the pointy end into the squishy things that scream and bleed.|
|Fighter||Ohhhhh. Why didn't y'say so?|
|Red Mage||These are werewolves, you see. They can heal from any injury. Save those which cause them aggravated damage!|
|Thief||Isn't all damage aggravating? I know it annoys me when I get hit.|
|Black Mage||Oh man, and those Potions. The aftertaste is worse than coke! And you can't tell me it's healthy to knock back like ten of those things every day. I swear, having to drink those is at least as aggravating as taking the damage itself!|
|Red Mage||Listen! Werewolves take aggravated damage from silver weapons. It is their one weakness.
Therefore, since I undoubtedly have the best dodge pool, I'll run amongst them and you guys assail them with your silver weaponry--which I'll assume you all brought, like me, just in case of such a supernatural emergency--while they're distracted.
Sidestep specialty, don't fail me now!
|Red Mage charges at the werewolves offscreen.|
|The werewolves maul Red Mage offscreen.|
|Red Mage||(offscreen) ARRRRRRGH! OH, SWEET JESUS! IT HURTS!|
|Thief||Is that like a water based version of dodge ball?|
|Black Mage||Wow. Red Mage has a lot of blood...|
|Red Mage||(offscreen) Their claws are raking through my flesh like a +2/+2 Sword of Wounding! Arrrrrgh!|
|Black Mage||But not as much blood as he had about five minutes ago, of course.|
