This Comic's Cast:

I blame 8-Bit Theater for this. Because the characters in that comic, based on Final Fantasy, were all referred to by their classes (which makes sense since in the original game none of the characters had names until you named them, making them blank slates), people just got used to calling any black mage "Black Mage" and any fighter "Fighter".

So yeah, poking fun at that. At least my Fighter is a little smarter than the one in 8-Bit. I can take solace in that.
 
    

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.
