#207: Before the Court

This Comic's Cast:

I like Shaft and Olrox's interaction here, but it wasn't originally supposed to be the point of this comic. I wanted to have Orlox before the judge, but I realized after laying down the trial scene from Chrono Trigger (which I also used, earlier, in DSWC when Richter was before the court -- see, parallels) that Olrox didn't have a back sprite, which meant I couldn't put him in the box.

And I wasn't in the mood to make one. I will admit that.

So this was a compromise. I put Shaft in for a scene, have the two of them banter, and then I can move on.

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.
