This Comic's Cast:

And here we really start to get into those storytelling flourishes I was talking about. When the old man tells the story, it's all retro looking. When the Bard tells it, the comic looks like the more recent remakes of the game.

I don't know if anyone ever caught this, but the four Light Warriors we see in the Bard's part of the story are the same four Light Warriors from DSWC. I used the exact same party as a reference to it (and just because I like random crossovers).
 
    

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.
