The thing I love about using Blacula is that I can get away with a lot with his character. Dracula has so much written about him, in the Castlevania series and externally. Everyone knows what he's like so, aside from making him gay (which I can justify), he's a fairly locked-in character. I have to be faithful to everything I can about him.

Blacula, though, had two movies. In them he acted a lot like Dracula, but he doesn't have all the crazy backstory and stuff written about him that Dracula does. I get an evil vampire to use with a relatively clean slate.
 
    

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.
