Red Mage is such a great actor, he's so painfully obvious about everything...Meanwhile, the ordeals are all idiots.
|Black Mage||I've absorbed all the ambient evil left over from my horrid doppelganger...|
(winks) Thus avoiding all possibility of redemption!
I don't quite feel complete.
|Black Mage||What's a guy gotta do to be abhorrent around these parts?|
|Black Mage||I mean, any sin worth doing needs a victim.|
But I have no idea where everyone is...
And I have been meaning to figure out how to turn self-love into an atrocity...
|Red Mage||Fine, I relent!|
Your accursed trial has bested me. Me!
|Red Mage||I now know, for the first time in my life, the barbs of failure.|
|Red Mage||I cannot defeat you, ordeal. I am undone.|
|Pride||(gradually disappears) And so you pass.|
|Red Mage||Of course.|
It's all so painfully obvious.
|Red Mage||I outsmarted the ordeal|
Clearly, I'm so brilliant, my mind works on levels I don't even know about!
Man, I can't wait to brag about this to everyone I know!
