Welcome to the rat cellar. A beating has loosened our tongues, allowing us the chance of identifying the wrong song, speaking false to a knight, getting a guy muddy, discovering an actual Dune reference, endlessly reviving Ramza, employing an ineffective mage, configuring the proper Post Up, beating up prisoners, bearing a ribald tongue, filling different radicalization meters, wishing to end the aristocracy, pulling off one last job, arguing over the necessities of a rebel army, speaking our fill, and trading one life for another. You may yet keep your bacon.
