And Elly. Dear, sweet, steadfast Elly. The people of Neo-Atlantis need a protector. You can shepherd what's left of mankind out of the apocalypse and into a new Golden Age. The people will see you, not as a lowly grunt soldier, but as their guardian and savior... an inspiration to every generation thereafter.
You see? No tricks. No traps. This is your chance to undo all the misery you've seen. I can make all of that happen.
Fools! You would dare turn down the—wait, what?
Seriously, being a hero sucks. Everybody's telling you how much they hate you the entire time and then they all die anyway.
Agreed. We seem to have a talent for unmaking worlds, so why fight it?
But... I mean, is the guy in the headband on board? He doesn't usually do stuff like this.
Trog willing to try explore avenues. Perhaps fun.
Well, I won't argue! Sign here, here, and here. Initial here. Date and sign here. Ignore that part about your soul, it's just a technicality the lawyers make us put in.
Trog hate lawyers!
Signed... Rezen... Vox. Okie dokey, there you go! When do we get cool fiend powers?
They're still being shipped in from Taiwan. We didn't think you'd be starting so soon.
Can I get some wings? Like, not the full Su-Zaku treatment. Just the wings.
I think we can make that happen.
Alright, that's the last of it.
I still can't believe Queen Amoebaea refused to give us this stuff. If we hadn't been there when the guards killed her...
It's sad, but we must continue if we're to climb the tower. The faster we leave this world's griefs behind, the better off we'll be.
Alright. We place the hero gear on the statue, aaaand...
Well, that's it. I guess we'll be leaving now.
I don't get it. What was that even supposed to do?
Uh. Do you guys feel that?
Feel wh—OH GOD IT'S AN EARTHQUAKE
Hahahahaha! Oh man, that never gets old.
I like the face they made when they didn't get the sphere. Seriously, how dumb do you have to be to leave that stuff lying around? I can't believe how bad at this the last guys were.
I must admit, this was a smashing idea. It's such a natural fit. I don't know why I didn't think of it before.
The best part was coming back to Base Town. "Oh, no, Rezen! Don't disintegrate us with your vast magical powers, we totally didn't call you a freak the last time we saw you!" Losers.
IS SHAME ABOUT SPOUSE OF DENTE THOUGH.
It really was.
Indeed. The taste was just awful.
HA HA HA HA HA
...wait. Did you hear that?
