This Comic's Cast:

For the record, the narrator's discussion on bugbears is mostly taken from Wikipedia. I edited and paraphrased some stuff, and removed things that wouldn't make sense within the context of the story.

Like bogeymen, they are the things of children's nightmares. But, within an adventure like this, thinking they don't exist would be suicide.

Besides the farmers seem to think bugbears are real, and when did stupid, inbred hicks ever get anything wrong?
 
    

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.
