I always have to assume there's some new reader out there picking a random story from the archive to read and just going with it. In those instances, I have to once again cover important details about the characters -- like the fact that Darkmoon is a vampire, but he's good, and can wander around in the daylight.

I mean, if I was picking this comic up fresh, and I saw there were back stories that occurred before the main story, I might be tempted to read them first. I have to assume other people would read the comic the same way I would.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
