|Thief||This is not what I had in mind when I began my quest. How did I travel so far only to arrive where it all began? Er, in the jail of the place where it all began, anyway.|
|Black Mage||What do you mean I'm the cutest one?!|
You can't even see my face!
|Fighter||Therein lies your advantage, BM.|
|Black Mage||If anything, Thief should do it.|
He's got those rogue-ish good looks after all.
|Thief||I knew these guys were stupid enough to easily manipulate...|
|Black Mage||He seems a little Elfish to me anyway.|
He's probably used to it.
|Thief||That's why I joined them. I figured this whole "Light Warrior" schtick would be a great cover for my ulterior motives, but how could I have known that they'd be so stupid as to set me so far back?|
I only pray that it's not too late to save my father...
|Dr. Malpractice||Hello, Chancellor Usurper.|
|Astos||Greetings, Doctor. How are our patients on this fine day?|
|Dr. Malpractice||Our illustrious king, Sire of the Khee'Bler clan, suffers still. He is bedridden and hardly aware of the world around him.|
|Astos||What of our prince?|
|Dr. Malpractice||Er ah, the prince? Why his condition has continued to deteriorate. Yeah.|
|Astos||And you have spared no expense in your valiant search for a cure, I trust?|
|Dr. Malpractice||Naturally, my Elfocratic oath would allow for nothing less!|
Alas, the prince's condition boggles even my medical training.
|Astos||Excellent. The best revolutions are the ones that are state approved!|
|And if neither Father nor Son is fit to take the Throne within a Year and a Day, the Rulership of all the Lands of Elf shall pass unto he who is Chancellor.|
|Astos||I shall see to it personally that the new Sahn'Ta Clan government rewards you most handsomely for your efforts, Doctor.|
|Dr. Malpractice||I already have been...|
|Astos||What was that, Doctor?|
|Dr. Malpractice||Er, I said that this will be a new glorious day for the elves of Sahn'Ta.|
