Relics for Adults:


From left to right:

Common Calculator:
Prized for its ability to assist on fighting one of the vampire hunter's most dangerous foes: the bills.

Blue Thermos:
Keeps warm a fluid that is very important for a seasoned vampire hunter's focus.

Cheap Microwave:
Mysterious device that can heat Wall Meat on the fly. Useless without a power source, however.

Modern Mobile:
Slightly older than the most current version. Renders maps and newspapers superfluous with its mystifying powers.

CleanerMAX 2000:
Makes the vampire hunter's daily battle with dried grease that much easier.
« Last Edit: June 28, 2017, 12:24:38 AM by theplottwist »
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

Relics?  As in, "The Eye/Rib/Nail of Vlad, Cube of Zoe, Bat/Mist/Wolf Orbs" and items that otherwise provide new abilities, etc.?

Yup. But make your own. Of course the explanations should be your own too. Punny ones are totally OK. This forum loves puns.

Graveyard Duck
Recovers HP while ducking. Used to have a silk bag.

Felt inspired today and tried doing something, I really don't know how I finished this without looking at a duck for reference  :D
I think everyone will get the joke.

What about Dracula's incarnation sprite contest? (in human form)
Or "Design your own sub-weapon". Design your own villain? Design your own Dark Lord candidate?

Heh, but I won't have won yet! xD
IF I win, I would like to see a Dracula's Incarnation contest or a new Dark Lord Candidate. Feel free to select from one of these two the way you see fit (if you can mix both into one some way, its even better). The important part is it being humanoid, so while it can have some special vampiric traits like Olrox or Brauner, it needs to be have resemblance to a human, no giant demonic form or something like that (unless the artist really wants to draw it as a bonus).

hehe. I'm just rooting for the duck to win, because castlevania reasons.

Hmmm... I'll think of a way to mix both, maybe. :)

It's a neat idea.  We did the one before about Drac's final form.
