#357: Out Into the World

This Comic's Cast:

And so we launch into the next adventure, which was the first adventure (not counting all the adventures the heroes had seperately before they banded together into an official "party").
The reason for Year One was because I started the comic after the heroes all came together. This wasn't meant to be a Quentin Tarantino-style effect, where we see the adventure interlaced with backstory bits. Really, I already knew the characters (as they'd all participated in a forum-based RPG), and I just wanted to get moving with their attack on Dracula.
Of course, that was a touch silly on my part, as while I knew the characters, no one else did. I should have started with a retelling of the RPG (Year One seen here), and then moved on.
It would have made Game One much longer, but I would have avoided some reader confusion that way.

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.
