Despite not being the sharpest tools in the shed, Red Mage is adding Stake Summoner to his list of feats while Fighter plays Harvest Moon. I won't even go into what's happening to Black Mage.
- In front of the Von Vampire Residence
- A cattle field (likely nearby the Hindu Vegetarian Club Meeting place)
|Thief and Red Mage are still arguing in front of Vilbert's house.|
|Thief||Let's reassess the situation. Black Mage, our heavy artillery, is out.|
|Shift to Black Mage, standing in front of the darkness waving his hands around.|
|Black Mage||Yeah, sword-chucks. Yeah!|
It'd be just like having two swords, but you could wield them both with one hand.
And there's the added benefit of having no control over either of them!
Of course it's a great idea, it all makes sense to me now.
I was a fool to ever doubt it. A bumbling fool, I tell you!
|Thief||Fighter, our meatshield, is otherwise occupied.|
|Shift to Fighter now, standing in front of a cattle field, trying to attract the cows to approach the fence.|
|Fighter||I just need two cows to be impaled and set on fire.|
C'mon, just step forward to volunteer.
Okay, just mill around aimlessly to volunteer. Thanks!
|Thief||And your idiotic gambit failed miserably.|
|Red Mage||It's not my fault he failed to recognize my genius.|
|Red Mage||I find that often happens when you work on as many levels as I do.|
|Beat panel. Thief looks down in silence.|
|Thief||Yeah.... I'm sure that's something like a problem for you...|
|Red Mage||Indeed. Unfortunately for Vilbert, I'm going to have to get significantly more blunt.|
|Thief||But we're really more of a sword and knife group.|
|Red Mage||(Zoom up) That we are, Thief. But that won't be a problem. We're fighting a vampire, so we need to drive a stake through its heart.|
|Red Mage||(Raising arms) We need only call upon the mightiest stake in all the land!|
