I explained here not only because I want to make sure people were keeping up, but also because I didn't actually want to kill the Elder God here. I'm not done with him yet, and while I wanted this fight to be big and bad and bold, I also had to end it unresolved.

Another reason why I had to explain. It's not a finished plotline, but I had to end it here. The balancing act.
 
    

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.
