57: It will not be the highly experienced, grizzled general with all the experience, men and resources of the kingdom at his disposal, who was literally raised to the task, who saves the day. No, it will be the teenage delinquent we just dragged out the dungeon who has no weapons or tactical experience and who spent most of his days picking pockets who will ultimately save the day from the evil invading demon horde. You may as well send the old guy into retirement and let the real hero get on with his job.

62. Magma is harmless as long as one does not actually touch it.
63. As long as bullets do not come into contact with a tiny area roughly situated in your abdomen, you are safe. Otherwise, you colorfully explode.
