Natani: Damn it, we almost had them! If only you’d brought more darts, or a bow, or…
Zen: With what money, Brother? In case you forgot, we failed our last mission. Our only bow went up in flames, and I haven’t worked in a month. I spent every last coin from this mission’s advance on those darts and the crystals for your illusions. And even that wasn’t enough. I had to spend all of last week’s meal money as well.

Zen: So tomorrow, when they’re exhausted and weak… we’ll strike!
Zen: But for now, let’s get some rest.
