[ A stormy night in the mountains; their dark shadows are towering in all
directions. The camera rotates to the left to reveal the dark silhouette of a
castle. It focuses on it. A lightning bolt strikes it. ]

A Distant Voice from the castle's top: No, it didn't do.

[ The lightning strikes again. ]

Voice: One more try.

[ The lightning strikes again and a torch is lightened on the castle's roof. ]

Voice: That's it.

[ After a few seconds the camera shows a man wearing a dark suit looking over
a large window. The room is lit by a fireplace, which causes the shadow of
the man to flicker.]

Dark man (Mordox): I thank you for agreeing to come here from your distant
base, oh great Warlock Galku. You've acquired quite a reputation for yourself 
and I believe you're just what I need. I think your objective is obvious. In 
fact, I give you three guesses to guess why I summoned you here.

Galku (who is out of the frame): One: The Blue Rabbit's Adventuring Company.
Two: The Blue Rabbit's Adventuring Company, and three: both of the above.

Mordox: Exactly, now I understand you specialise in getting rid of such … 
eh… disturbances.

Galku: Yes, it is my speciality to neutralise such characters who prevent
raising your ambitious evil projects.

Mordox: What did you say?

Galku: I said I get rid of such characters who prevent raising your evil
projects.

Mordox: You said my projects are evil? How dare you! My projects are in no way
evil. 

Galku: then what are they?

Mordox: they are just incredibly selfish and totally inconsiderate of everybody
else's welfare and interests.

Galku: I couldn't define "evil" better myself.

Mordox: Did I get you here to write a dictionary of the English language? 

Galku: No, but as a matter of fact I am writing one myself, as a hobby. The
last word I wrote the definition for was "evidently", and I think the next word
would be...

Mordox: Cut it out! Now, where were we?

Galku: I just said it is my speciality to get rid of characters who prevent
raising your incredibly selfish and totally inconsiderate of everybody else's
welfare and interests projects.

Mordox: Yes, those so-called adventurers have interfered with my plans for a
long time. What will I tell you? They ran into every one of my recent projects
and messed with them so badly, I could count what was left from every one with
one finger. They are too stupid to realize they put themselves in danger, but
since they've got more luck than brains they seem to get out of it just fine.

+++: The worst thing about them is that they are the player characters, so the
Game Master is on their side!

[ At this point the floor starts shaking. The camera moves backwards to reveal
Galku, and a big crack is starting to form between the two.]

Galku: Quick! Take back what you just said or the Game Master will do something
terrible!

Mordox: Oh, OK. Even though they are the player characters the GM doesn't seem
to treat them any different and is very fair and objective.

[ The room stops trembling but the crack remains. ]

Galku: I think the crack adds a nice touch. [and leaps to Mordox' side.]

Mordox: Now, what were you planning to do about those … eh … disturbances.

Galku: Well, I figured it would be too difficult to get them killed. However,
since, as far as I know, The Blue Rabbit Adventuring Company does not posses an
inherent teleportation ability, it would be just as useful to relocate them in a
place where they would not be troublesome.

Mordox: And how are you going to do it?

Galku: Well, I happen to have a one-way portal, which I borrowed from the great
sorcerer Pinky.

Mordox: The same Pinky who conjured the spells Pinky's Clapping Hands, Pinky's
Wonderful Automatic Drummer, Pinky's Anti-Bureaucratic Pounding Fist and
Pinky's Extraordinary Tickling Fingers?

Galku: The very one! Anyway, with this port, if properly disguised, we'll be
able to send the "Blue Rabbits" on a one way trip to a place, thousand of
kilometres away from anywhere remotely civilized.

Mordox: I love the sound of it. Ha ha! Ha ha! Ha ha ha ha 

[starts laughing loudly and Galku joins him. The camera rotates in a circular
path to the right, and eventually reveals a large crystal blue. The crystal
ball is showing a funny cartoon, and the two men are pointing at it and
laughing.]

[ The Blue Rabbits are recruiting non-player characters.]

Blor: I have a great invention.

Klaria: What is it?

Blor: It's an automatic crossbow

Klaria: Really? How do you call it.

Blor: The machine-bow.

Clover: Can you demonstrate it?

Blor: Sure.

[ Blor stands on a rock, ignites his machine-bow and start shooting arrows all
over the place. The animals get scared, and eventually the camera shows some
Smurfs who are talking in a muffled tone, and pointing at Blor. They call
Handy Smurf and he diverts a stream to wash the rock's standing soil. 

Afterwards, the rock gets carried away on the mud because of the 
counter-momentum from the arrows. It eventually falls over a cliff with Blor 
on it. Blor is hanging by his machine-bow's string of arrows.]

[Mordox disappears. The Blue Rabbits arrive. Bryte sees Galku who tries to 
look innocent, but Bryte rushes to him and lifts him up in the air.]

Clover: You, where's Mordox? Tell us what you know!

Galku: What are you looking at me? I'm completely innocent!

+++: See no incredible selfishness and total in-consideration of everybody
else's welfare and interests. Hear no incredible selfishness and total
in-consideration of everybody else's welfare and interests.

Bryte: you mean "See no evil - hear no evil"?

Galku: I knew it was a good definition!
