Initially, Gabe and little Ethan were supposed to participate, but after that death of Gabe, Steph decided to revisit his initial idea. In the second chapter in fact, seeing Ethan drastically down, Steph decided to readjust his GVR campaign to Ethan's comics, centered on the character of Thaynor the Monster Slayer. Alex will then find himself, in the next chapter, having to disguise himself as a bard, to accompany Ethan (in the role of Thaynor) in this new adventure.
