This Comic's Cast:

And this is how you breeze through plot and get the characters invested in the future -- you name drop a more powerful sounding villain, and then leave them to get all curious about it.

Curiosity killed the cat (plus, you know, all the deadly traps and horrific monsters).
 
    

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.
