    I've been done with Dark Souls for a long time. Most of you know that. Of course it's not because I don't want to play. I could use something fresh for awhile is all. I did a brief stint catching up on my plus backlog. But, you know....Souls man! 

     Apart from rocking a cool towel and wrecking a few people, I never did anything with the Demon's Souls community. Emergence made a thread asking about a fun playthrough. I thought to myself, "I haven't played in over three years. I can't even think about challenge runs." Seriously, what equipment would be a challenge? I haven't a clue. I remember Northern Regalia. That was fun. And cheesing a False King with a white bow with my sl 250 because it sounded funny.

    After being encouraged in E's thread (people should know better by now) I found the perfect idea to engage the community (a few years late). 

     With some further ado...

     My return to Boletaria!

    I love your writing style, man.  You're hilarious most of the time, and deep other times.  Because Skeletons indeed happy

    Haha, glorious.  I have little to add, but here it is:

    1)  Yes, the unarmed miners can try to punch you if you harrass them enough.  If you then parry them, they look like they are striking disco poses.

    2)  On my own new playthrough, in 4-1 I noticed for the first time that the rolling/archer skeletons' eyes light up when you approach, and then the light disappears when you kill them.  In other words, they are just animated by someone else (scythe dude in 4-2?) and otherwise are just inanimate bodies like everything else in the wreckage.  So don't feel too bad about not noticing the stonefang switch for a while, heh.

    It's funny because I recalled (incorrectly obviously) all of the miners being aggressive.  It was probably my tendency to kill the ones holding the bags thinking they dropped good loot or something.  Now that I'm older and wiser I can see how that might make a difference.  

    You have no idea (ok, yeah you probably do) HOW BADLY I wanted to find that switch.  It seemed pretty obvious that the elevator was the way to get the shiny near the boulder throwers.  And of course you can see the elevator.  It taunted me.  After not finding it initially I did the entire area thinking I would come to that area from the top and the elevator would be a shortcut to the beginning.  It wasn't until a million tries later and my augite of guidance (aka, left hip) was just so that I found it.  Biggest facepalm ever for me.

    EDIT: And thanks for the comments everyone. I'm not sure I'll get to play tonight (I might be bringing work home with me) but if I do, I think I'll head deeper into Stonefang.

    Good work, Skare!  I'm enjoying Popcorn reading about your adventures. PvE  And don't feel bad about the elevator -- I think I missed the switch, wrote it off for later and then totally forgot about it for a couple of playthroughs. blushing

    Alright, I've had to bring work home the last couple nights (and this weekend) but I will try to play tonight. Still unsure as to which location but it's on tonight!

    Sweet, feel free to grab me for coopery as needed if I'm on (and sl compatible).  Also, have you stayed human for any of these zones?  I was getting a surprisingly high level of invasions.

    I've been human after each boss until I met a natural death. No invasions yet. I might be able to do some coop. I'm in the 20s. At the very least make a postcard with you

    I was thinking of a little more cooperative online play for variation but it might be after some more leveling. At 28 currently but I'll likely be adding some soon.

    I made a new toon to play with Fin and you. I just can't get online with you two at the same time. I still have my SL 30 I made to invade lowbies, which I'd like to use to make myself famous in Scare's epic story. 'Tis all.
