    Hi all,

    So I was working through Sen's Fortress, and had several attempts at Iron Golem with every attempt being a fail! I checked my inventory, and I had no humanity, so couldn't summon the dude who helps.



    Before 1 attempt, I noticed that a 1 had appeared next to my health bar. Ran back down and was able to reverse the hollowing!!! Any idea why I was gifted a random humanity?



    Cheers

    You get those after killing a certain number of enemies in areas where you've not defeated the area boss.

    Trust me, the game doesn't feel sorry for anything.

    I believe it works out that you can farm up to 10 Humanities per level just by constantly killing everything that moves, providing the Area Boss still lives that is.

    DON'T YOU ALSO GET 1 SOFT HUMANITY (oops), from each +1 rating on messages left with the orange stone?

    I think so, though I swear I don't believe I've ever gotten a +1 on any of my orange messages. At this point, I don't read or write any more orange texts.

    I might have left two messages just to test it. No reason to ever do it a gain at this point. Unless there were a message that said "This is f*ckin' easy." 40+playthroughs later, theyre just part of the scenery.

    Pretty much sums it up.

    I get really confused, because I see soapstones with like... +75 rating, and I'm like "The ***?", since most stones have +0, and suddenly you have 1 stone with +75. It makes me wonder if some smart players have figured out how to exploit the feature.

    Smarter players than I it would seem. Because that whole orange message system seemed like a great idea (dating back to Demon's where it seems to have functioned better) but it just confounds me.

    Either I'm an idiot, or FromSoft fracked up somewhere there.
