This Comic's Cast:

When I played up to this portion of the game, I kinda cheated. I knew (from friends) that after playing through the volcano, your next task was to get the airship. The airship would make it a whole lot easier to get everywhere, since you don't have to fight random battles while on the ship. Saves time and money and MP that could be better used elsewhere.

So, once I finished off the Earth Fiend, I leveled up a bit and then ignored the quest for the Fire Fiend and went to work getting that airship. Then I went and got the character upgrades I wanted (we'll cover that in comic later).

And then I went and kicked all kinds of ass against the Fire Fiend... and still almost died. Let me tell you, I'm glad I skipped around the way I did. Could have been much, much worse.
 
    

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.
