This Comic's Cast:

Give them credit for thinking like a villain. It's where the villains they're used to would go. Natural train-of-conclusions.
Of course, we aren't dealing with their usual villains, so this probably won't pan out.
If you're wondering, the path they're on is from Secret of Mana 2 (that's what it's name would have been if it'd been released in the US, as per Nintendo Power back in the day). That game had gorgeous graphics, so it's really a shame it never made its way over here.
 
    

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.
