Rise of the New Caster

"With the death of Kharpett the Magical, we have an opening for Lead Caster," Pereira said to the three novices of the Black Arts. "Who wants the job and tell me why?"

"Uh, I think Lahrii, is qualified," said Mo the So-So.
Startled, Lahrii stammered in reply. "No, no, no. It is clear that Kur-lee is the most worthy."
Kur-lee stared at the two Casters and said," I am  not worthy. It is Mo the So-So. He deserves it...uh, is most deserving."

Pereria looked at the three and took a deep breath. Rubbing his chin he said " You three take counsel and come up with an answer. I need to know after we finishing burying Kharpett. I'll be back in an hour!"

As Pereria left he heard the three Casters in council.

"One, two, three, go! Rock beat scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock.  Again!

**********************************************
After much divination it was decided that Mo the So-So would be the Lead Caster.

  2. They did. There was Shazaam - Assassinated.
    Kirina - Killed the first time in battle as the Lead Caster.
    Kharpett - Crushed by a crate of nectarines.

    Kind of puts off the applicants. ;-)

  3. There's always another caster that has sniffed too much mercury and inhaled too many fumes to care about the previous problems with downsizing in any army. I'm sure you will find some quality casters willing to be used as meat shields by the Mirish army. ;)

  4. You say meat shields as if it's a bad thing.
