If we make a mistake, the light'll surround us.
To proceed safely we must "tag" the glimmering light.
Edgar: This must be the place...
Terra: What place?
Edgar: There's a room in here they use to test applicants to the city guard. We should be fine as long as we follow the light. If we make a mistake, lights will surround us. Then we'll have to tag the glimmering orange light to proceed.

"Elayne!

New; close to literal "Be strong [kWhazit]"/"Pull yourself together", but rendered to better fit the scene. Other translations don't seem to capture very well the fact that Elayne is found already gravely unconscious from the poisoning, almost certainly dead, and Cyan is calling for her to come to. Woolsey's rendering isn't wrong per se, but it does give an impression of having missed something of the obvious gravity of Elayne's condition.Cyan: Elayne!

"This...
This is too evil..."
New. kWhazit ("Can such... Can such a thing be allowed...?") keeps FF6j's structure, but Slattery's word choice ("This is...unpardonable") is closer to literal; neither "allowed" nor "(un)pardonable" feel credible here on a raw emotional level. "(Un)forgivable" would be closer; What's important is Cyan expressing that this evil is great enough to make even the possibility of atonement unimaginable. The new edit forgoes mentioning forgiveness explicitly in order to focus in on the extremity of the evil -- which is really what kWhazit/FF6j "...such a thing..." is capturing as well. Note: line similar to Woolsey's "can't be happening" used via Slattery in #560. "Unforgivable" comes back explicitly in #561.Cyan: This...
This...can't be happening!
Cyan: This... This is unpardonable...

"N... no..."
Slattery, edited for reduced coherence w/r/t kWhazit & Woolsey. "D...

First sentence adapted from Slattery, or Woolsey in #546; Second sentence New; similar to Slattery "This is not possible...", edited to better match the meaning and intensity of Woolsey ("Idiotic!") and FF6j (lit.

Cyan: Grrr! There will be no mercy for thee!
565Cyan
"Rrraagh!
Which of you spilt the poison!?"
First sentence "Rrraagh!" see #564; Second sentence kWhazit repunctuated w/r/t Slattery; "ye" -> "you" since "Which of___...?" should take the oblique case (i.e. Which of them...?), and the archaic second person plural oblique personal pronoun is apparently "you" exclusively. Confirmed basis found in 17th century publications (Which of you doth...)Cyan: Urgh!!!

"Look...

Slattery merged w/ Woolsey; "do" -> "finish [Woolsey unused #575]", since Cyan & Sabin have already been 'doing this together' for two battles so far. The line may have intended "this" to refer to the pending battle only, but the ambiguity makes it easily come across as though Cyan has been obstinately refusing Sabin's help to that point.Look...we're gonna have to do this together!Sabin: Look, I think we're gonna have to do this together!

"Aaahhh!

"Whew...
I think we're finally out of the woods now."
"So, how do we get to Narshe from here?"
Cyan
"Narshe? I believe the only route passeth through the forest to the south, but--"
Page 1: New; common figure of speech which, when interpreted, has a meaning slightly closer to literal (w/r/t Mato & kWhazit) than Slattery. (When the ironic pun was realized, it instantly blew away about four other candidates for the line.) Slattery's opening "Okay" -> "Whew" to avoid repetition w/ #585. There is a slight chance this line was actually meant to explain why Cyan joined Sabin permanently, and if so, Lina Darkstar was the only one to partially pick up on that. The next page uses the first person plural (same as Woolsey) to help make up for it if that meaning was erroneously missed. // Page 2: Woolsey; "Say," -> "So, [Slattery]". // Page 3: Slattery; "passes" -> "passeth".Sabin: Can't believe we've made it this far...
Say, how do we get to Narshe from here?
Cyan: Narshe, eh?
Only one route, through the forest to the south.
Sabin: Okay, I think we should be safe now! So, how do I get to Narshe from here?

Sabin
"Great, I'm already starting to talk like thee...
...I mean YOU! Dammit!"
Sabin
"Now listen! See that lever?
The one right by your hand?
Push it down."
Page 1: First sentence Slattery; Second sentence Woolsey, edited to use "Sire" as Sabin's initial slip-up rather than "Thou art". Neither is particularly believeable; however, the more syllables are involved, and the further one has to slip from modern English to get there, the harder it is to suspend one's disbelief for the sake of the joke. // Page 2: Slattery; "you!" -> "thee... No, YOU! Dammit! [novel]" Sometimes the best fruit is hanging so low, it would be a crime not to pick it. Now that the baseline gag is established, it can be repeated in exaggerated fashion for the real comedic payoff. Partial justification for the extension is also found in the fact that Slattery's exasperation is subdued ("Great, ...") while the original FF6j demands an exclamation ("Confound it all! [Woolsey]" / "Oh crap! [kWhazit]").Sabin: I'm getting sick of this! Thou art such a pain in the...! Confound it all! I'm starting to talk like you!
Sabin: Now listen!
Just use those levers located by your hands.

629Something to note about Reflect...
The Reflect barrier cannot block spells that have already been reflected once.
"You can use this to your advantage.
