    Dark Souls






    In the Age of Ancients,
    The world was unformed, shrouded by fog
    A land of grey crags, archtrees, and everlasting dragons

    But then there was Fire
    And with Fire came Disparity. Heat and cold, life and death, and of course... Light and Dark.

    Then, from the Dark, They came
    And found the Souls of Lords within the flame.

    Nito, the first of the dead
    The Witch of Izalith, and her daughters of chaos
    Gwyn, the Lord of Sunlight, and his faithful knights
    And the furtive pygmy, so easily forgotten

    With the Strength of Lords, they challenged the dragons.

    Gwyn's mighty bolts peeled apart their stone scales
    The witches weaved great firestorms
    Nito unleashed a miasma of death and disease

    And Seath the Scaleless betrayed his own, and the dragons were no more
    Thus began the Age of Fire
    .
    .
    .

    But soon, the flames will fade, and only Dark will remain

    Even now, there are only embers, and man sees not light, but only endless nights
    And amongst the living are seen, carriers of the accursed Darksign.


    -Taken from the Dark Souls wiki.













    So, Dark Souls, the sequel/sucessor to Demon's Souls and a game that could be described as a joyful ride into an abyss of pain, suffering and a stuggle for survival. A struggle you will most likely loose.

    Some of us have played the game already, and some of us have played Demon's Souls before we jumped on this familiar train of hurt. Some of us have not. No matter where you stand in regards to the game you are welcome to discuss the game here, it's mechanics, features, lore, fiendish traps or patches, or tell tales of your own adventure into this dark, grim world or the jolly co-operations that you have experiances. And since art has begun to surface for the game and it's characters such things are appreciated as well


    In any case the game deserves a thread of it's own...


    And with that being said I would like to direct this one image (somewhat NSFW-ish. And the comments are spoilerish, so don't look at those) to those players that has already rung the second bell in the game and has managed to talk to the Chaos Covenant Leader, Quelaan.

    that leaves virtually everything to the imagination. I don't like that.

    Seath also stabbed his people in the back, and went insane while researching stuff in his tower.

    Dark Lord is only bad depending on whose point of view you're looking at it from. Assuming you can trust Kaathe, which like everything else lore-related in the game is a big "i dunno lol".

    All the other questions: i dunno lol (Except that the Pygmy is probably dead if you're his descendant, unless he's not and/or you're not)

    Man, "lore"? There is so little lore in this game it makes me horny.
    actually there's a fuck ton. they just don't tell you any of it up front.

    but Gwyn? Seethe? Whatever happened to the Pygmy?
    seethe is a wack job, lord gwyn went power mad i think and I think although i'm not certain that the pygmy is the player/ the player is descended from the pygmy but I haven't braved the abyss with the pendant to learn about the past and so on.

    also fuck everyone else sol is the best mother fucker ever!

    tally ho! those gargoyle chaps have nothing on our

    JOLLY COOPERATION!

    Last time I fought them: Did both those things, along with summoning a fairly decent phantom to help. Sol was dead the minute Ornstein went Huge, then he fucking one shotted me.

    thus why i said kill fattie first. orn gets big but as i recall smough only gets a lit boost which is easily mitigated.

    did you start with the master key? kill havel? if you did you'll have the resources to move rather fast even in the elite knight set.

    lol pendant rumor

    The pendant is useless, bro. You can trade it to hawk girl for a useless covenant item, but that's it. Kaathe spills his guts about the past and the pygmy whether you have the pendant or not, the pendant does nothing, ever.

    I sincerely doubt that. I know devs promote shit but the story director recommended the thing so I'm sticking to the idea that it has some use.

    for a useless covenant item
    again something i doubt. all the covenants have their benefits and if the covenant is the one i'm thinking of then it's not useless at all since it's the one you create yourself supposedly.

    No. No, no, no. The director recommended taking the pendant or nothing at all, because they both do nothing at all, and he thinks that's the best way to experience the game. He even followed up by saying that Black Firebombs are the way to go if you want something useful to help you through the beginning of the game. There is no covenant you can make yourself. You cannot spare Sif. Pushing the truck is impossible, it doesn't give you Mew. Everything you believe is lies.

    Don't you trade it to get an item you can already start with, the Old Witches Ring? If so the covenant isn't particularly useful, other than a few Pyromancy spells.

    EDIT: Starting class doesn't really matter at this point, but I was a pyromancer. At this point I have high STR, DEX, and INT. Should have upgraded my VIT more.

    I have to be a dick about everything, friend. This truth was burned into my very soul during the great Pendant wars of the Dark Souls GameFAQs boards. Kindness has no sway over that hellish field.


    But anyway, the gentle way to say it is that when the director talks about ロールプレイ的 he's referring to things that don't actually affect gameplay or plot. It's more the romantic ideal of the "role-playing game". That's the place his recommendation was coming from.
