This Comic's Cast:

I'll admit, I had to refresh myself on what Darkmoon had in his inventory. It'd been 60-plus comics since I'd last looked, and he has a decently large inventory now.

As far as the solution presented, we're going to probably go with the first option, since I don't want to drag this out too far. More likely, in a real adventure game, you wouldn't have what you needed for this tower (unless you'd played the game before and just knew), but we're not going to be that mean.

I don't know of any adventure games that have epic-level bosses.
 
    

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.
