  • Castlevania TV series is vampires hunter story

    Netflix Castelvania anime series is really good in portraying historical hunters in XV century Europe. And this ever presented Inqustion… Interesting ideas for Hunter Cells are long families of hunters.

    Isn't the tone of this show rather at odds with the themes of Hunter: the Vigil?

      It's the story of lone hunter against eldritch vampiric horror - I think it's exactly in the themes of HtV games.

        If anything, it might be a mixed chronicle: Trevor teams up with a mage and a vampire against a greater evil. (And possibly another mortal, if Ellis didn't forget that Grant exists)

          The "lone" part is where I see a disconnect, yes. A single badass hunter taking on vampires isn't really Vigil's bailiwick. HtV's hunters need to rely on numbers, cleverness and evening out the playing field any way they can.

            In third episode there is nice scene where Trevor teach peasants how to defend monsters - and he even coordinates Tactics execution!

              Half vampire, very important.

              Well, to be fair, he's using a holy weapon that was specifically created to slay vampires and his bloodline has made it their sworn mission to oppose Dracula throughout the ages.

              Besides, every time they kill Dracula, he just comes back 100 years later, so it's not really an enemy they can defeat.

                Do half vampires exist in CoD? I was just rounding up.

                    Dhampir should be making an appearance as a playable minor template in the upcoming VtR2E book: Half-Damned

                      Even with a holy weapon, a Vigil character's not going to go toe-to-toe with a vampire. Or half-vampire. Besides, in Vigil, holy powers come with a catch the side of Dracula's goatee.

                      Trevor's a vampire hunter alright, but the genre is pretty different than what Vigil portrays. The villagers he trains to kill the monsters, that's closer.

                        Would be pretty surprised if a single hunter could tackle this:

                          Returning to series on Season 3...

                          Do you know in what year Netflix series takes place? I try to sort out event in it in context of world's history...

                          Also, Dracula seems to work like uber-Beast, with Castle as his Lair - and Hell's ( Inferno ) legions as his Kinship ( beside vampirers, of course ).

                          And - minor spoiler - in Season 3 we see vampire hunters Compact in Japan. Maybe some relations to Fallen Blossoms era from Dark Eras 1?

                          EDIT: Full timeline of the series, till season 3 -

                            To be fair, you can’t get all four in a single play through of the game, so the show might just be a non-Grant path and be pretty respectful of the source material in that regard (just needs Wall Chicken!)

                              Have I mentioned I want a Storypath game that does more cinematic urban fantasy/gothic horror? Because I want that. Could easily make Trevor a Talent-like character (not that it would be Trinity Continuum, but same rough idea) on equal tier with Sypha and Alucard.
