While I've never had a problem with Vlad's badassedness (if this isn't a
word, it should be), I don't think we can attribute his successes only
to elements that everybody could attain. He may not be a demi-god but he
is the latest incarnation of a very powerful figure and still retains
some of the powers. This heritage also supplies him with a host of
friends that includes great weapon holders, a demi-god, a goddess, a
demon, an undead enchantress, etc. Any old Easterner on the street
couldn't really aspire to where Vlad is with just a few lucky breaks.
