This Comic's Cast:

This is the trick about adventure games: sometimes there is no solution to what you want to do, just because you aren't far enough into the game yet. For all Darkmoon knows, the ogre might regularly fall asleep, but Darkmoon has to find an item that will let him walk quieter just to sneak up on the ogre while it's asleep.

Or the computer is just being a dick. As has been the case so many times before, either is likely.
 
    

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.
