ScottieOnMars: Hey WD, have you seen that BS list of reasons LegalBeagle sent us about why the rover vs rover battles are a terrible idea? Dusk: Yeah, I saw it. But I don't buy it for a second. We're going ahead with the battles, no matter what.
LegalBeagle: BS!? WTF!? With all due respect, Wayne, I don't think you fully understand the risks involved. Putting weapons on autonomous rovers is a recipe for disaster. We are already under a consent decree from Lloyd's unlimited, we will never be able to secure the rider.
Dusk: I understand the risks just fine, thank you. And I've already addressed each of the points on your list.
ScottieOnMars: That's right. WD always has a plan B!
LegalBeagle: Fine. But I still think it's a bad idea. What if something goes wrong and someone gets hurt? There is a limit to what I am willing to clean up!
Dusk: Look, accidents happen. But that's not a reason to stop doing something that could be really exciting and profitable.
ScottieOnMars: Plus, we've taken every precaution to ensure the safety of the audience and the drivers. We're not amateurs here.
LegalBeagle: I understand that, but what about the potential for bad publicity? What if people start to view these battles as violent or barbaric?
Dusk: People love violence and barbarism! It's why they watch movies and play video games. We're just giving them what they want!
ScottieOnMars: And besides, the media attention will be great for us. It'll put us on the map, and draw even more settlers to Duskworks Landing!
LegalBeagle: I still don't think it's a good idea. But I'll leave it up to you, Wayne. Just make sure you're prepared for any legal consequences that may arise.
Dusk: Don't worry about me, LegalBeagle. I know what I'm doing. Dust, Rust and Glory is going to be huge, mark my words.
