Looks like Fighter made his way to Swordtown after all...
- The Real Light Warriors' Boat
|Red Mage||And that's the amazing tale of our miraculous victory over the eye.|
|Black Mage||Just the latest in a series of unnecessarily harrowing events introduced to my life thanks to morons like RM.|
|Red Mage||It said it knew the way.|
|Black Mage||It was going to take us out of reality. Again.|
|Red Mage||(thinking) I thought it was a shortcut.|
|Thief||Yes, fascinating. You know of course that I don't believe a single word of it.|
|Black Mage||And why would you?|
|Thief||Also, I suggest you don't tell anyone else about this as I own your life-stories.|
You'd be committing plagiarism!
In other news, I love my life.
|Black Mage||You ever get the feeling that the universe is a vast, impersonal emptiness that exists only to hurt you?|
|Red Mage||Yes. It's how we know the DM is doing his job.|
|Fighter||(holding three swords) Hey guys! Did you hear how Thief single-handedly defeated the eye monster again?|
And how you two just sat in a corner weeping the whole time?
|Black Mage||Yeah, we heard something more or less along those lines.|
|Fighter||Oh, Black Mage, you'll never guess where I've been!|
|Black Mage||No, don't tell me.|
I want to figure it out.
|Night passes and Red Mage and Black Mage are gone.|
|Fighter||He is so stumped.|
What a sucker.
- Red Mage's mention of DM is an abbreviation of "Dungeon Master", a person who is directed to create dungeon elements and roll event dice in Dungeons and Dragons games.
