Stabbing an evil wizard through the heart: a common tabletop fantasy genre cliché.
- Red Mage's "A-Hole"
|Black Mage||You were just talking about how we need to work together!|
|Red Mage||And now we're working together to kill you.|
|Black Mage||Dammit, Fighter, I just tricked you into being friends again!|
|Fighter||I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attention and then everyone was all action pose!|
|Black Mage||They're trying to kill me!|
|Fighter||(going to Black Mage's side) That's a shame.|
|Red Mage||But we have a good reason!|
|Fighter||(back to Red Mage's side) Sorry, Black Mage, but you heard the man.|
|Black Mage||"A good reason" isn't a good reason at all!|
|Red Mage||We need to use your heart.|
|Black Mage||So do I!|
It moves my blood around.
|Red Mage||Not if we kill you!|
|Black Mage||That's distressingly logical.|
|Red Mage||You're a nexus of destructive force.|
And that's been amplified by the hate and evil you absorbed from your doppelganger and the fiends.
At the center of it all is your heart: a mass of pure malevolence for all that lives.
|Black Mage||I've only been saying that for years now.|
|Red Mage||Unleashing its power may be enough to destroy Sarda completely.|
|Black Mage||Suddenly, living in your A-Hole forever doesn't seem so bad.|
