(words inspired by the art and earnest wonderfulness of Faebelina)
EXT – Wooded Cliffside. SKYCALLER FAEBELINA sits on the cliff, wind in her hair, smiling contentedly. SOMEONE haughtily clears her throat off-screen.
Faeb says: “?”
A GOBLIN appears. She is wearing shaman’s robes and has a rock in her hand. The ROCK appears to have a crude face scrawled on it with charcoal.
Goblin says: “I’m Glitzy Glimmerrock, acquisitions expert of the Earthen Ring! And YOU my friend are sitting on some parTICularly valuable merchandise!”
Faeb says: “What do you mean? It’s just this cliff underneath me.”
Glitzy holds up the Rock and says: “Well my friend here, this earth elemental, says that a vein of corrupted gold is centered on this cliff-face.”
Faeb says: “Forgive me for being suspicious, but goblins love blowing up landscapes for fun and profit and it looks like you just drew a face on that rock.”
The Rock says: “HOW DARE YOU FLESHLING! I AM ALLOCHTHON AND THIS CLIFFSIDE IS MY HOME! WHAT THE GOBLIN SAYS IS TRUE!”
Glitzy says: “And the fact that I’ll make a killing selling the gold as ingots in Undermine is entirely coincidental!”
Faeb says: “what?”
Allochthon says: “what?”
Glitzy says: “what?”
