This Comic's Cast:

Damn greedy church people.

Although, really, would a sorcery school be run by the church? Is this guy even really a monk? What if he's some creepy old dude that wanders the countryside, picking up teenage girls -- girls that are never seen again.

Man, CVRPG could be so dark if I wanted it to be.
 
    

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.
