Transcript of A Concerted Effort
- Player: So, welcome to the war room! What do you think of Hyu-Ji's chances as the situation stands?
- The Biologist: I've produced a full field report. It's only 450 pages, with a few fold-out maps and...
- The Convict: The town's eminently burnable - wooden palisades, wooden shacks. Plus at least seven or eight breaches where the enemy could land.
- The Missionary: The church is solid, it'll make a strong fall-back point. I indulged myself and added some oil-cauldrons to the roof, so we can hold out in a siege.
- The Biologist: All of this is in my field report...
- The Convict: The orphans have been practicing with swords; a fencing style, which should work well against the charge-and-slash of the pirates.
- The Missionary: And the church guard have maces. There are only ten of them, but I've given them the full Tomlin training.
- The Biologist: Very well, if this is some kind of competition, I can make some explosive concoctions.
- The Biologist: At least, I would if I had any ingredients. There's none left since the pirate invasion. You know, the first one.
- Player: Is there any way to get more?
- The Biologist: Oh, yes! Send me out to the mines of Hanto - they've got everything a budding arsonist could need.
- The Biologist: You should see what I bought! I couldn't help myself, I was like a palaeontologist in a brush shop. I've got sulphates, acids, oils, flash fluids, animal fats, tea...
- The Convict: Ah, tea! Fantastic job. I've got the money back at the longhall.
- The Biologist: My treat, sweetie. Basically, Hyu-ji[sic] is the most flammable and combustible laboratory in the world. And I promise I've locked it up well. They're in a safe, inside another safe, within a vacuum.
- The Missionary: And the island's as prepared as ever it will be. With my mace and the watchful eye of Saradomin, our victory is assured.
- Player: I really hope you're right.
