You hit a lot of points I didn't even bother going into. The entire show has been "cursing and sex as a indicator it's 'mature'" since the beginning with the goat fucking. That's how Ellis works and damned if he was going to change things for this show. I actually had someone recently leave a comment on one of my vids asking me why I hated all the sex and cursing, and didn't take "because it's all just fluff in place of substance" as a good enough answer.

Also, all the plot holes:

hah! that's right, I forgot about that. That came out of nowhere and while amusing in a "hey I understood that reference" kind of way, didn't amount to anything that couldn't have been done at night just the same.

In terms of a long play-through CV3 isn't too bad. Sure it has 15-plus stages but they are divided up via multiple paths, so you can never truly play through all the stages in one sitting. SCV4 as far as I can tell has the longest play-through. That game is eleven stages total and no branching pathways. But it's SCV4 so I don't mind at all.

Since Carpathian Night pays tribute to the classic monster film era, it only made sense to keep the collared cape.

I think this is where the main problem lies since the classic monster films had nothing to do with the original novel at all and it's what exactly tainted Dracula's image forever and you're only continuing it. Count Orlok from Nosferatu is actually the closest to how Dracula is actually described in the book minus the rat like face.

Finally, it doesn’t directly contradict the novel because our Dracula story takes place in the 15th century, while the story of the Dracula novel takes place in the 19th century.

Actually it does and just in case if you're wondering what I've originally written about the design above, it's also completely inaccurate to how Dracula is described in the book not only the high collared cape but also he lacks facial hair and looks like a typical goth pretty boy than anything resembling Vlad the Impaler himself that is.

It seems that my previous concept suggestions have all been ignored here and you had every opportunity to portray a Book accurate Dracula but instead you've once again fallen into pop-cultural omasis.

Although I think he still needs to loose that High Collared cape since that originated from a stage play from Hamilton Deane.

We considered many options for this, but the idea I thought was most fun was to add our own lore to the cape and give a story reason for why Dracula would be wearing it. You are correct, the cape was never in the novel, but comes from the stage play and popularized by the films. Since Carpathian Night pays tribute to the classic monster film era, it only made sense to keep the collared cape. To bridge the gap between the films and original novel, we added the explanation that the cape symbolizes the keeper student of Scholomance, giving Dracula a reason to wear it. Finally, it doesn’t directly contradict the novel because our Dracula story takes place in the 15th century, while the story of the Dracula novel takes place in the 19th century.

Prince Dracula (1416 - 1446)
Seasoned veteran, graduate of Scholomance, commander of the Army of the Dead, and Lord of the Vampires.

The undead prince commands his army from his ancestral home, the ancient Castle Dracula. He is tremendously gifted, one of the very few to have mastered all six of the dark arts.

In life, Dracula’s brilliance, ferocity, and ruthlessness struck terror into the heart of the invading empire. In death, Dracula is unquestionably the most powerful and dangerous being in the world.

Relics

The Life: A vampiric sword that answers only to the Lord of the Vampires. It cuts cleanly, immediately absorbing any blood it touches. It's wielder can absorb the stored blood to grow stronger and age backwards, and each successful strike drains the life and stamina of its prey.

Plate of the Dead : A set of armor forged in the pits of hell, completely invulnerable to mortal weapons. It was created for the commander of the Army of the Dead, and any wicked being that sees it knows to obey without question.

Mantle of Scholomance: The most adept and able student of Scholomance is deemed "Keeper" by the devil, and becomes his most loyal and dangerous servant. The Mantle of Scholomance symbolizes the Keeper status of its wearer. It is indestructible, and can shield its wearer from divine forces. Other students of Scholomance are granted enchanted capes similar to this one, but only the Mantle of Scholomance has the enlarged collar, making its wearer easily identifiable as the Keeper student of the devil.

Edit: I just now read this is Prince Dracula not the actual Vlad the Impaler and I've just jumped into conclusions lambasting that this isn't exactly accurate to the novel.

Although I think he still needs to loose that High Collared cape since that originated from a stage play from Hamilton Deane.

Congratz on beating CV3! It's one of the hardest games in the old series, right along-side The Castlevania Adventure (f@#k that game!!).

I've done multiple play-throughs of CV3 and have managed to beat the game with all three helpers. But I think the hardest mode to play is when you've got only yourself and no helper. I had managed to do that and it wasn't easy. The final stage before Dracula's stage is always a bane no-matter who I have with me >:(

In terms of a long play-through CV3 isn't too bad. Sure it has 15-plus stages but they are divided up via multiple paths, so you can never truly play through all the stages in one sitting. SCV4 as far as I can tell has the longest play-through. That game is eleven stages total and no branching pathways. But it's SCV4 so I don't mind at all.
