And so, we can presume that if Dracula came back on his own, which it seems like he did, then we are in the era of Simon Belmont, the most famous of the Belmonts. Were another vampire hunter to walk into the castle right now and defeat Dracula, Simon would likely be the one to do it. This actually does tie pretty neatly into continuity as, aside from Order of Shadows (a side story to the main series), there aren't any main games in the series between Christopher's time and Simon's time. I don't think I planned for that, but it worked out nicely none-the-less.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
