Certain words make a person uncomfortable if they're thinking the wrong way. Hence, they're sick-minded.

|Red Mage||After a series of probing interviews, I was able to determine why The Other Warriors are not dead.|
Ranger, fleeing from Berserker's blind, murderous rage, ran away.
This eventually led him to a desert where he regrouped with Cleric and Rogue, his "lost" companions.
|Red Mage||It seems Rogue and Cleric had been roaming the area, probing it if you will, in search of real estate dealings with a nomadic tribe of sand people who, incidentally, have no concept of ownership.|
|Rogue||I know a guy.|
He's the number one importer/exporter of beachfront property for a legit nation I can't remember now.
I think he'd be interested in acquiring your endless beach-like wasteland.
|Red Mage||When Berserker eventually caught up with Ranger, he was exhausted from probing through the desert while keeping up with a demeanor of a rampaging, mindless killer.|
|Berserker||Kill. Poop. Rape.|
Also: Thirsty. Tired. Die.
|Red Mage||Ranger took advantage of Berserker's weakened state to show him a probing article from a newspaper Cleric had brought from civilization.|
|Cut to a newspaper with the headline: '"Band of roughians decimate Dwarven nation. Let's face it, the Elves are probably to Blame."' The Light Warriors are pictured. Second headline reads: '"Real Estate Scam bankrupts dozens! Cheap beachfront lots are actually in desert wasteland!"'|
|Red Mage||Thus exonerated, Ranger was then able to befriend Berserker again and The Other Warriors were reunited at long last.|
|Red Mage||Any questions? (BM raises his hand) Yes, Black Mage?|
|Black Mage||A two-parter,|
One, how did the newspaper have an article about events in a remote desert that hadn't happened yet?
Two, does RM's constant use of the word "probing" make anyone else feel uncomfortable?
|Red Mage||What's wrong with being thorough? I always go for the deepest probing action humanly possible.|
