This Comic's Cast:

Rock on. Referencing the very first comics for the series. I'm always happy when I manage to bring everything back around. Dust off the old running gags.
In college, my wife, her roommate, the roommate's boy friend, and I used to write notes back and forth on their white board, usually something funny along with important information for the other half of the room while they were out. Things like "The Carrot Lives. Be back around 8."
That Carrot joke picked up after a while and became this thing. By the end of it, the jok had evolved off the white board and moved onto a mirror that was on the back of the "front" door to their dorm room, and the entire thing was covered in dry-erase writings about the "Great Carrot". Jokes have a tendency to take on a life of their own.
Thus, the inspiration for this.
 
    

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.
