This Comic's Cast:

Really, it just seemed to me that the elves would need the chopper. I couldn't take it away from them, so I had to explain it away.

Plus, making the Alecs take a different transport meant the second series could take a different path (helping it feel different from series one).
 
    

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.
