Castlevania: The Inverted Dungeon

The Moon Rises, the Wind Howls

This is a story about monsters, of devils and demons, beasts and creatures and the things that go bump in the night (and the things that scare even those). Of werewolves and witches, of mummies and succubi. And of vampires.

Most of all, this is the story of one vampire in particular: Lord Dracula, self-proclaimed ruler of Wallachia, Romania, and Transylvania. Of Dracula's eternal struggle with the Belmonts, a family of vampire hunters sworn to ridding the world of the demonic and especially Dracula.

This is a story to fuel an eternity of myths and legends (and a number of slash fiction stories the editors of the Inverted Dungeon have never read, certainly didn't write, and only know about in passing, we swear).
