See, as I said, I'll drop clue, but it's up to you, the reader, to decide what clues are actually useful and what ones are meaningless. I'm kind of a dick, that way.

Aaaand... yep, we dodge around the battle altogether and start to tell an entirely different story. Worry not, I might get back to the Old Man's story at some point. For now, though, let's move along to something else entirely.
 
    

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.
