Legend of the Hunter - 52
There you go, happy thoughts... in a way.
Yes! Yes, our Prince Rasp is to be married to the princess of a neighbor country! Very festive! Very political! Also VERY IMPORTANT!
Ahahaha, Hieronymus Slick, you are so funny when you pretend to forget important things!
SO TOTALLY FUNNY.
The General ponders on the integrity of your words while taking care of those pesky assassins emerging out of VARIOUS NINJA-COMPATIBLE HIDING PLACES. Pesky ninjas, cockroaches of the assassination business.
I TRUST YOUR EXPERTISE ON THE MATTER!
YOU WERE TO RESUME YOUR DUTIES IMMEDIATELY AFTER SEEING GREAT KING SKAL,
BUT BECAUSE OF YOUR LATE ARRIVAL
(as well as neglegible circumstances possibly involving ninjas)
THIS WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE. I TRULY HOPE YOU HAVE NOT BEEN DISTURBED IN YOUR FAITH IN THE GREAT KING SKAL.
WOULD YOU EXPLAIN YOUR PLAN TO STOP THE DEMON, THEN?
PARTICULARLY THE PART WHERE YOU WANT TO SHOOT YOUR BROTHER OUT OF A CANNON.
DULY NOTED, MR. SLICK.
I LIKEWISE WISH TO BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION THAT THE CAPTAIN OF THE GUARD HAS COMPILED A LIST OF THE DAMAGES CAUSED BY YOUR ASSOCIATE, A CERTAIN... SALVADORE SLICK.
HE WAS, IN HIS WORDS, "PARTYING FOR THE GREATER GOOD".
BUT DO NOT WORRY, YOUR REWARD MINUS DAMAGES CAUSED STILL YIELDS A POSITIVE NET GAIN. THOUGH NOT THE LARGEST ONE, I MIGHT ADD.
ALSO, MR. SLICK...
I DID NOT MISS THAT NINJA.
