This Comic's Cast:

Another trope, of course. The wandering sage, who appears just when our hero needs help and guidance. I'm sure he'll put her through a training montage while teaching her life lessons that she'll be able to carry with her for all the rest of her days.

That, or he's a lecherous creep. In this comic, either is possible.
 
    

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.
