"That might take a bit more finesse than smashing bandits or gladiators would typically entail. Nevertheless, I doubt you weren't hired without reason.

Or, at least, I will, and I doubt either of you wants to be caught below full strength while the other isn't."
The figures vanish, but Josep keeps the spell active for now.
