This Comic's Cast:

While, in theory, I could have done an 8-bit plotline on both sides of the comic, it felt like I shouldn't go overboard with it. Besides, by and large 8-bit implies the characters are in the past. Trying to come up with four different explanations for them all traveling back in time and making it all seem like it should happen all at once didn't feel like it would work.

Also, if we're going to have Thereshiri in this comic, let's put her to good use.
 
    

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.
