CVRPG Introduction #6: Fantasy Setting

This Comic's Storylines:

This Comic's Cast:

When it comes to fiction, two series of novels are credited with creating the Fantasy genre as we know it (and, there-by, leading to the creation of the RPG genre of games): J.R.R Tolkien's Middle Earth saga (the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, the Simmarrillilliarriliromminsss... whatever the Hell it's called), and C.S. Lewis's Narnia series (The Lion, the Witch, the Wardrobe, the Silver Chair, the Chez Lounge, and Lamp, the Coffee Table, the Horse, and His Boy... et al).
If we read these series of novels, we can glean three tid bits of information:
One is that geeks seem to really dig elves, dwarves, satyrs, and talking animals (sometimes all around a tea table, eating scones... although that's really more of Lewis Carroll's bag).
The second is that geeks love dimensional travel (and time travel, and space travel, and sometimes time travel in space, or really, all three at once if they can get it).
The third is that to be truly successful you need a ton of initials in your name (no matter how boring your books may be).

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.
