Of course you realize this means war!

Stick a fork in me, I’m done.

I think better with my sword

I am taking no prisoners

It looks like someone is crossing the creek

Way to work the deck, buddy

Play nice chuckles or don’t play at all

Victory is in the air

Clearly the Gods of Zendros have looked favorably upon you

With so many choices I find myself lacking conviction

Oh yea, I thought I was a goner for sure that time
