The fact that Fighter, Thief, and Red Mage suddenly vanished must obviously mean something's wrong.
- Ice Cave, in a Pit of Doom
|Mrr'grt stands over the Pit of Doom (Watch your step!)|
|Mrr'grt||Look upon our dark master from beyond the stars and know that your lives are nothing, Warriors of Light!|
|L'zlhe||I don't think they can hear you down there. The echo is pretty bad.|
|Mrr'grt||Bet I could spit on one.|
|Thief||Battle positions, go!|
|The team drew their weapons, except Black Mage, who was throwing up...|
|Black Mage||Ah, man. I've got, ugh, y'know when you're going to throw up and your mouth gets watery. I've got that now.|
|Thief||It's here! It's... the worst thing imaginable. I know that all my life has been a waste.|
|Red Mage||Thief?! Thief!|
|Red Mage||Okay, don't panic, what is this thing?|
It's taking apart my mind at a conceptual level.
There's no limit to its nothingness.
I can't... there's no stats for it.
|Red Mage||Fighter, don't look at it!|
|Red Mage||(fading) So beautiful... they should have sent a bard...|
|Red Mage vanishes...|
|Fighter||Don't look at what?|
|Black Mage||Okay, I think it passed.|
Urgh, I swear I could taste it there for a second. Ugh!
