The technical term for sails is discussed, while Black Mage is in disbelief regarding sailing with the Dark Warriors.
- Dark Warriors' galleon
|Black Mage||You can't be serious about going with them.|
We need to travel around the world and they've got a ship.
I'm just an average forest elf with no real knowledge of sea travel, but I know that's one big boat and it's got a ton of blankets.
|Bikke||The technical name be "sheets".|
|Vilbert||Prithee, oh captain my captain, but aren't they hitherto "sails".|
|Switch to Bikke's field sprite and a burning ship.|
|Bikke||Look 'ere, Sonny Jim.|
I've sunk more boats than the fabled gnomatic sinking machine what is nuthin' more than a large stone with many smaller stones attached as well as a liberal application of fire.
|Bikke||I do be thinking I knows what sails be.|
|Vilbert||You mean "sheets".|
|Bikke||Ye mutinous dog.|
|Garland peeks in.|
|Garland||Er, that is, hey, ye guys, keel haul ye argumenting. Um, yar.|
|Black Mage||These are the Dark Warriors.|
Tell me you know that. You're the only one I can talk to as something like an equal. Don't take that from me.
|Thief||Oh, Black Mage. You and your paranoid delusions.|
"These are Dark Warriors." "White Mage likes me." "Thief is trying to rob us of our very souls."
|Black Mage||Wait, I only think that last one out of fear of you. I've never said it out loud.|
|Thief||Oh, I steal souls and secrets.|
|Black Mage's eyes become tiny out of fear.|
