This Comic's Cast:

Remember, this takes place somewhere in the 1600s or so (maybe a little later -- I purposefully keep that detail fluid so I don't have to define where, specifically, in the Castlevania continuity the comic occurs). During this time period, France is still a formidable kingdom, before the excess, bankruptcy, and civil war.
For someone from the future France probably seems like an easy target, but in the past it's an entirely different country.
On the flip, what has Norway really done?
 
    

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.
