The Light Warriors are confounded by darkness.
|The Light Warriors are walking in a dark cave.|
|Fighter||Man, it is stupid dark in here.|
|Black Mage||Hold it. I refuse to be part of a society that encourages rampant abuse of its own language.|
|Fighter||Fair enough. Ahem: Man, it is hella dark in here.|
|Black Mage||Now was that so hard?|
|Fighter||(Fighter hits something with a THUNK! ) Ouch!|
|Red Mage||Hey, what's the hold up?|
Are you fighting up there? Are you hogging my experience?
Stay away from my experience points! Daddy needs his medicine!
|Fighter||(kneeling) Er, you can have this experience if you really want it. I stubbed my toe on somethin'.|
|Red Mage||Oh, aheh. Yeah, stubbed your toe...|
On account of all the darkness about.
Sorry 'bout freakin' out.
|Fighter||It feels kinda ancient...|
|Red Mage||Perhaps it is a very small yet hardy Cthonian entity?|
|Thief||Or treasure! I can smell the riches from here.|
|Black Mage||Or I could cast a level 9 light spell so we can see.|
|Fighter||And it's smooth.|
|Red Mage||A level 9 light spell? I've not heard of such a thing.|
|Black Mage||Yeah, it's called "Hadoken." It would expose this cave to daylight by way of a massive explosion.|
|Fighter||I think it's got holes...|
|Red Mage||I'll cast a normal light spell, if you don't mind.|
|Black Mage||Wait, you really have a spell that's not directly related to insane min/max-ing?|
|Red Mage||Heck no. I've got a glass-blower skill of 4 with a specialization in lenses.|
|Black Mage||Ah yes, I figured you blew something. Heh, heh, man I'm good.|
|Red Mage||Give me a furnace and three hours and I'll give you a laser beam powerful enough to carve your face in the moon with only a 0.3% margin of error.|
|Fighter||Well someone turn a light on so we can see what it is!|
|Red Mage creates a Flash of Light complete with graphic.|
|A skull can be seen along with fighter in the resultant circle of light.|
|Fighter||Turn it... turn it off again.|
|The circle of light disappears.|
|Thief||As team leader, I say that we should run away.|
For the record, screaming in terror will not be looked down upon.
