Transcript of Interview:
Nam: “So Nam, what makes you think you have what it takes to become the founding member of the New Order of the Pretty Face?”
Nam: “Well, Nam, I’ve clearly got the experience, as you can see by my dragon kill totals. Plus, I’m a Wizard, the best of all the adventuring classes.”
Nam: “Well, that’s certainly true, Nam. You resume is quite impressive. But founding a new Order isn’t something that just anyone can do. What gives you that extra edge?”
Nam: “Well, Nam, what really gives me the extra edge in this case is the fact that I happen to own the only known Amulet of the Original Order of the Pretty Face left in existence.”
Nam: “What? You’re the owner of that Amulet? That’s amazing! Unfortunately, the order already has a founding member… Me!”
Nam: “Wait a minute, if the criteria state that I have to interview with the current captain, then how exactly is this interview working?”
Nam: "Well, time is not precisely a linear concept. Have you ever heard of a Proto-Spatial Misalignment?
Nam: “Of course, but I thought that was disproved by the laws of thermoarcane harmonics.”
Nam: "Oh, sure, you would play the thermoarcane card, wouldn’t you. How typical. You just need to relax and let the paraphase manipulation waves wash over you. "
Nam: "I prefer to think of them as paraphase manipulation particles, but to each his own, I suppose. The real telling fact, though, is what your opinion is on how the the metatemporal bias of this conversation proves or disproves the manipulation itself.
Nam: “Well, now you’re just stalling. Tell me, do I get the job?”
Nam: “Wait a minute, I thought that you were interviewing me…”
Sergey (from afar): “Nam! Wake up! The caravan’s about to set out!”
Nam: “Bah, gotta go. Congratulations! We’re the new Captain of the Face!”
