Stanley the Plaid: No! Absolutely not!
It would literally empty the treasury!
Wanda Firebaugh: Lord, you can't spend the treasury if you get croaked.
Stanley the Plaid: I won't get croaked. Even if the city falls, I can take the Arkenhammer and get out.
Wanda Firebaugh: But you can't take the money.
If the city falls, Ansom will seize the treasury.
Stanley the Plaid: Mm.
Right. Unless I spend it first.
Wanda Firebaugh: Yes, Lord.
Stanley the Plaid: Still. One warlord. That's all we'd get.
Wanda Firebaugh: The perfect warlord.
Stanley the Plaid: Undefeatable?
Wanda Firebaugh: I... don't think so. But, as good as they come.
Stanley the Plaid: How can they ask half a million for a spell?
Wanda Firebaugh: Technically, the spell is 350,000. It's the casting and support plan that brings it to the full--
Stanley the Plaid: Oh!
Okay, well you're a caster. You can do the summoning.
Wanda Firebaugh: No, Lord. I'm a Croakamancer. We need a Findamancer.
Stanley the Plaid: Oh, Wanda. Don't sell yourself short. You're a great caster.
You just have no head for finance. The "support plan" is how they get you.
Stanley the Plaid: Go ahead and take 350,000 shmuckers and go buy this spell. I look forward to meeting our new champion.
Wanda Firebaugh: Lord...
Stanley the Plaid: You win, Wanda. Don't make me change my mind.
Sound: step step step
Stanley the Plaid: Hey!
Wanda Firebaugh: CRAP!!
