This Comic's Cast:

Sure, one guy turns lead into gold and it's impressive. If anyone else finds out the technique, that's two people doing it... and then more people find out. And more. And someone really greedy makes a ton of gold. Then there's less demand. Fewer people want gold because it's just not that rare any more. And so gold loses all value.

If you think that couldn't happen, look into diamonds. Supply is kept artificially low by a monopoly on the diamond industry (no a paranoid fantasy -- there really is a monopoly on the diamond industry) so that demand remains high. High demand means there's a high value still placed on what's out there.
 
    

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.
