Originally, Richter was just gonna get dragged into the castle because Shaft thought he was there to apply for a job. I changed it half way into writing because I liked the idea that no one could tell it was the real Richter and not the clone.

The threat, by the way, is rather hollow. Richter is actually already in the Dungeons, just as a boss and not a prisoner. It's also where Frankie would normally be in the SNES game, which is why I put Mummy there. A little bit of continuity.
 
    

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.
