    The Truth about the Dark Soul, Kirk, Online system and other details Empty The Truth about the Dark Soul, Kirk, Online system and other details

    Post by ChizFreak Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:26 pm

    Spoiler alert.
    Here are some things I KNOW they are true. They are not theories, they are facts.

    Kirk, it's from the Chaos Covenant. He invades people to gather humanity for her lady.

    The truth about the Pygmy: he is our ancestor:

    "It found the Lord Soul and humanity is like a
    fragment of it. Kinda like an ancestor, so the descendants have a part
    of that soul."
    This means that we (the undead/humans) have a part of the Dark Soul, which I personally believe it's the Dark Sign we all carry around.




    There is no connection between Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Every similarity it's a an (intended) coincidence.

    The lack of story at some points, it's mainly because the developers wanted the player to fill that holes in the plot. That's why there is so much info about the background of the game (item descriptions for exmaple), they gave all that background info to "feed" the player's imagination.

    The damage that the Dung Pie's Intoxication causes, it weaker than the damage than the Blowdarters' intoxication causes, so you can intoxicate yourself with dung pie and go kill them, and you will not be intoxicated again.

    The great eyes of the Basilisks are fake, they have tiny eyes draw under the big ones.

    If you manage to let Solaire live to the end of the game and summon him to defeat Gwyn, he will link the fire in his own world.

    When an NPC invades your world, they appear as a Red Phantom, this doesn't mean they are Darkwraiths (see kirk).

    The system the games uses it's P2P as we all know. But it takes some time to optimize itself to find signs for you. So it's better to stay in an area and wait there to find signs. Every time you move to another area the system starts optimizing itself for that area, so stay put.

    The fact that you're from WoW/WoS or Princess Guard, doesn't mean you will get more easily matched with members of the same covenant, it's just adds a variant to the system, and the system will most likely (not always) match guys with the same variants (such as level). Same with Miracle resonances rings.

    The developers didn't had plans for DLC but they wanted to release one, so it's possible.

    Dark Souls' development started way before the huge commercial success of Demon's Souls started.






    Ending: All this info has been gathered from an interview to the director/producer of Dark Souls: Miyazaki Hidetaka. And no, he never talked about the pendant.

    How do you know Solaire Links the Fire in his World. And why can't he link the fire in your world he has nothing to live for at that point anyway?

    Did you read all my post? The director himself said it. It's that way.

    Sorry man must have skipped over it somehow. Interesting though. What could be the significance of Solaire Linking the Fire I wonder?

    Maybe it has to do something with that theory about we had about the brazers lit in Firelink Altar.

    Ok, so I was right for most of the things... although I never noticed the toxification of the Dung Pies, although I recognize the different levels of toxic (the Blow-darters are more deadly than the bloated hollows of the painted world, that is what I noticed).

    If I remember correctly, I think that someone had pointed that out on the forum, the old one, about the baslikisks and the eye difference. Although due to the spams of the wiki forum, I don't think I can really prove that.

    I feel confident with myself. Nothing has changed thus far. just clarification of the Developer's part just seemingly makes me, well, good.

    I think the only thing that I had doubts with was Solaire, as he was a phantom of a different time 9and possibly space) in which helps you defeat Gwyn. I would think that once lit the flame would be non-accessible to Solaire, but... hm. Well, this does help me in some form at least. Thanks for the find, Chiz. I found this useful at the very least. Nice find.

    You did not notice that? Sometimes you can see that, but sometimes the dog is not see able due to a glitch. The wheel will move without the dog at times, though.

    I don't know, I didn't find them, but I think that those parts didn't talk about Dark Souls so that's why the guy didn't translated them.

    The thing about the basilisk eyes can be seen in the art book that comes with the collector's edition. I'd love to think that there are other clues hidden in the book, but I'm sure the characters we don't run into are just ones that never made it into game assets. I do find it strange about the female gargoyle-

    Based on Quote: I would think that Humanity is the part of the Dark Soul we all Carry. Not the Dark Sign. I mean it says it right there, 'humanity is like a fragment of it'

    I think he means Humanity as of Humans, not as of the consumable item humanity (which I too believe it's related to the Dark Soul). Anyway I still believe that the Dark Sign it's a part of the Dark Soul the pygmy found.
