This Comic's Cast:

I was on a Discworld riff when I thought of this section. The Alchemy Guild (in Discworld) is a constantly changing place, mostly because the building explodes every other day and they have to rebuild it (and find whatever students and teachers survived the explosion -- or find new ones).

Alchemy just doesn't seem worth it.
 
    

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.
