This Comic's Cast:

Put another way:
You, as a mortal, dress in a leather shirt and a breastplate. You wander into a dank castle, dressed as you are, with only a whip as your offensive protection. You then proceed to take on every nasty creature you see, many of which are faster, strong, and better than you in every way.
Plus, you simply being in the castle is an affront to them.
You do all this, and while you may call his heroics, Fate just looks upon it as "assisted suicide".
 
    

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.
