It's rare I do a DSWC that doesn't have a joke to it, but this comic just felt better as a dramatic moment than it would have if I'd tried to shoehorn in a punchline.

I did recolor the Balrog sprite. That's not an official coloring from Pocket Kingdom, although I do happen to think it looks pretty bad ass.
 
    

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.
