I got off firefox long ago because of issues that I know can't seem to recall. I only know it wasn't working anymore so I instead went with Google chrome.

This post isn’t an update about the game, but something related.

I was browsing a comic book store last weekend when I spotted this on the shelf:


http://aftershockcomics.com/brothersdracul/

Brothers Dracul by Aftershock Comics. I was immediately interested and picked up all five issues. Those who have been following Carpathian Night since the beginning will remember that the game use to be called Wallachian Night. The villain of the game was a vampire version of Vlad Tepes, and the hero was his half brother, Vlad the Monk (who eventually became Dorin). I thought the combination of the historical Dracula with the Stoker Dracula was a cool idea, but I was never satisfied with what I could do with the idea story wise. I have since abandoned the idea in favor of focusing on the Stoker Dracula combined with my own original characters, and I am much happier with the result, but it’s so cool to see somebody else take roughly the same concept I had and actually execute it well.

Brothers Dracul starts off as a seemingly accurate portrayal of the young Vlad Tepes and his brother Radu, but shortly after the story introduces vampires and it basically becomes a vampire hunting comic with Vlad and Radu playing the role of the hunters. The characters and setting are a perfect fit for vampire stories in my opinion, and it’s refreshing to see Vlad Tepes as the protagonist with vampire elements being incorporated into his story, as opposed to what we always see instead, the Bram Stoker Dracula taking on attributes of the historical Dracula.

The story moves along pretty quickly, overlaying plenty of vampire hunting action on top of the interesting historical backdrop. Ive always thought Vlad Tepes was more terrifying than the fictional Dracula, and they do a good job here of not just portraying him as a madman, but they give historical context to why somebody would turn out the be the person Vlad was- the world he was born into and raised in was horribly chaotic and violent even without the vampires. Vlad and Radu basically spent their entire childhood and teen years as hostages to the Sultan, and after Vlad became free, the freedom of his homeland was in constant threat by overwhelming foreign military power and backstabbing fellow countrymen. In this comic, Vlad is rightfully a reflection of the horrific world he was born into, and he takes this rage into his battles with the vampires, and the factual mixes well with the fantasy.

Of course, I would recommend this to any Castlevania fan, especially those with any interest in the real life Vlad Tepes. It’s a good combination of what we love about Castlevania and the historical figure that inspired its main villain. Check it out!

Also, this guy reminds me of Dorin:

Two different browsers, Firefox and Opera are reporting this forum as malicious, telling me the connection is not secure:

The owner of castlevaniadungeon.net has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

castlevaniadungeon.net uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on Monday, December 17, 2018, 7:30:46 PM. The current time is December 18, 2018, 8:57 AM. Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE

I managed to connect to this forum via Opera by pressing the "continue anyway" option, but Firefox does not have such an option. Is it only me, or is anyone else having issues as well?

Purchased Evil Within 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I wasn't happy with the first Evil Within, but willing to give the second game a shot since I picked it up on holiday sale. I love the Tomb Raider reboot and about an hour in so far. Such a great series.

Getting hyped for RE2make

Castlevania Crypt was also not working for me. Before it disappeared, when it was still useable, the site had some obviously malicious code that redirected your page to spam websites, and you had to jump back to the URL to make it work. This is something I was able to verify in different devices.

RIP CV Crypt.

If I'm not mistaking it for some other site, it doesn't work for a few months now. I've tried to look for some cv3 maps and couldn't get to the site I usually used, I'm not 100÷ certain we are talking about the same site, but your link doesn't work for me either so we probably are.
It's definitely not your internet fucking with you, but I'm completely clueless as to why it is not up at the moment.
It was a pretty old domain tho.

Hello all, I just got a small question

I tried recently popping on http://www.castlevaniacrypt.com/ to check some info about CoD and I found the website closed (giving out 404 errors all around)
It seems to be fairly recent, but after googling it and searching around, I found nowhere any info about why the site is dead?
Or maybe it's my internet being dumb for some reason

If anyone knows, I'm curious, thanks a bunch :)
