    Dual Forest Covenant Idea Empty Dual Forest Covenant Idea

    This is an Idea I have come up with. What if there was an area like the forest, but instead of one covenant, there were 2.One covenant would have blue phantoms and a covenant green. You are at risk of being invaded by both covenants, and the covenants would be at constant war with eachother. The two covenants would offer different benifits, and represent two different schools of philosophy.


    An example of this would be if the "warzone was a city of some sort, and the rival covenants could be a group of intellectuals who use sorcery and other dexterity weapons, and a group of god worshipers who have miracles and brute force.

    could allow the covenants to invade each other even after boss was defeated.

    I say yes, but I left that out of the OP because that would be up for question.

    or perhaps they have to kill the leader of their opposing covenant in order to stop invasions.

    I would like it if they allowed more than 4 people to be in one game. Maybe 8 max would be good, but only 2 friendly to the host. The other 5 phantoms would be random invaders.

    Also no to the respawn. this isn't COD. No aranged matches either. Its just if two enemy phantoms both invade, they have to fight eachother as well as the host. Or they could team up if they want.

    I really hope the COD references are jokes. I see so much going wrong by involving ideas from COD or FPS in general.

    Yeah you could definately think of it that way, although if I were to join one of these two hypothetical covenants, I would not want to kill the enemy boss. I would keep them alive in case I wanted to host, and then If I wanted to invade I would put the ring on by any given bonfire.

    Ahhh....
    Thinking about it, I would love to have an 8 player free for all or 4v4.
    I know I'll get hate for this, but just think about it. No respawns or anything like that.
    Maybe even 16 people...



    Hunger Games pls.

    I was not meaning this to be like COD. Just have two rival clans invading in the same area.

    I would not want it to be an aranged match. Just people invade and the kill and then they die.

    I honestly want a huge arena. We wait for every player to join in, and we are let out into the world. We can use anything we want and decide what we want to do.

    Hunting down people in a huge version of Darkroot Forest... mmmmmm

    No I like the rival covenant idea just not the massive free for all, or the kill the host parts. One reason is that having that many people with who knows what will likely cause frequent lag spikes, and some things can get out of hand. Though having two rivals would justify a host having two phantoms as a norm.

    I agree with you there I do not want a massive free-for-all either. I am just thinking slightly more people to make it interesting. Perhaps 6 are allowed in. It would not happen often, and when it did not all the invaders would be the same covenant, and they would likely kill eachother.

    i meant it as a joke. couldn't think of anything worse than turning Dark souls into a COD free for all.

    I never did get to fight anyone in the arena. how did that mechanism end up working out?

    Horrible, half dead, a mechanic gone wrong, more like the forest only you keep fighting the same person. That is the DLC arena.
