1. the word DIE are tacky and without punch, as if SB was a mindless drone who didn't even know who Finn was, "No, but I want to" suggest his purer evil.
2. In the Myth Level Redemption we see the Journeyman taking off their cloaks, TAKING OUT SWORDS and putting on armour, I hardly think they found it lying around, they probably wore it under those big coats and Gold tiles.
3.If not then he could pick up swords from falen warriors, knowing he woudn't even get to the "you" part of his sentence is he tried to fight SB with a Shovel.
4.I don't think he should be healed, because what happaned in the at the Devoid (according to the Myth II Intro and thus canon) is that SB go to the Dwarf just too late, killed him and flew off to avoid the blast.
