i: Dudley should be here soon. I got some great equipment to kill him with this time.

Q: Cool, let me see!

Q: ..."Bracelet of warning?" "Bullwhip of life saving??"

i: I'm little, okay? I can't use a lot of equipment the way it's supposed to be used.

Q: ...a "helmet of holding."

i: Your head is way too big.

Q: Whatever. Could you give me the "bracelet?" I actually can't see in here...

The xan falls into a pit!

i: Nah, I think I'll give it to the xan--I kind of feel sorry for it. What's the AC on a girdle of warning?

Q: Really? The xan instead of me?

i: Well, you're wearing a bag over your head, so you're pretty much a lost cause.

The quantum mechanic reaches his arms out toward the xan, but it backs away skeptically.

Q: The xan is here, right?

i: It's, uh, a little to the left.

Q: Here, xan! I have a tripe ration for you, you bracelet-stealing little...

The quantum mechanic pulls the xan out of the pit. The xan falls onto the quantum mechanic!

Q: Ow--ow--ow--get it off--get it off--get it off--

i: You wanted better gear, right? It's your new Amulet of Stinging!

Dudley throws a bronze armor over the quivering blob!

Q: Oh, he's here.

Q: Quick! Use one of those gold pieces as a shield!

Dudley flicks his bullwhip! The bullwhip of life-saving is snatched from the imp's hand!

i: Well, that's disappointing.

Q: What?!

i: Use me as a weapon! It's our last chance! (Don't tell the elf.)

Q: All right. If we don't survive this...I love you, Jenny.

i: We're not even dating--

this is like a bad 1920s silent film.

Q

I shall trick thee
into falling on a
cursed loadboulder!

i

I AM NOT THAT SMALL!
You know, I first mistook thee
for a statue, when I regarded
thy oversized head of stone

Q x

Ow Ow Ow! Get it off!
I do say, this wretched xan
stings like the dickens!

i

Doth pain excite thee?
Wouldst thou prefer the
whip of life saving?
