As Bikke wonders how the Light Warriors defeated his crew, Fighter decides to take a swim.
- Bikke's Pirate ship
|Bikke||How could this have happened to me crew? Yar.|
|Garland||I told you they were tricky. But did you listen? No.|
"Nine vs. four? That's three to one in our favor. Yar."
Let me tell you, I find your math to be highly suspect.
|Fighter and Black Mage climb up onto the deck.|
|Black Mage||Touch me and die.|
|Bikke||But how! Yar, how could these Light Warriors have defeated a full nine fierce pirates?|
|Fighter||Oh, technically, Mr. Pirate Sir, we didn't really--|
(out of frame) YAAAAAAA-Dangit, gotta make a climb check to get up there... blast it all! I failed! Must wait until next turn to retry with a frustration penalty!
|Fighter||So anyway, like I was sayin'...|
What really defeated your band of pirates was, in fact-
|Red Mage||(out of frame) Ah-ha! Made it! Ahem. YAAAAAAAR! ... man, this ship is big...
|Red Mage charges from the left and smacks into Fighter, who falls into the ocean with a SPLOOSH!|
|Red Mage||Er, what he was going to say is that we did, indeed, beat your stupid pirates and that we, therefore, deserve all the experience.|
|Black Mage||Heh. Looks like it's hard to swim with armor.|
|Black Mage looks at Fighter at the bottom of the ocean.|
|Black Mage||Give my regards to the bottom of the ocean, sinky!|
|Cut to Thief.|
|Thief||Meanwhile, I grow more rich on the tragedy of "nutinally" induced scurvy! They are... suckers!|
