I'll be honest: I haven't played much of the Lords of Shadow games. I really need to, simply for completeness, but for now I'm not to sure on all the fiddly details of the games' plots. Gabriel is good, then he's bad. Yada yada yada, Dracula. Something like that.

Still, this is DSWC. Nothing in the bylaws of this comic has ever dictated that I have to do any kind of research.

 
    

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.
