    Umbasa. Possible relation to Dark Souls

    Post by dianaduh on Sat Aug 18, 2012 7:43 pm

    We all know tha umbasa is like an "amen" in demon's souls, but i've been doing some researches since From Software uses lots of references in the souls series.
    Here is what i've found till now:

    Zulu Calendar

    The Zulu had a calendar of thirteen months( moons). It was a lunar calendar. They divided the year into two season: the rainy season or working season and the dry or winter season (Murray 77).

    umBasa-(also called Um6aso), the winter fires are first lit, starts at the end of February

    Also:

    "We are currently in the ninth month, uMbasa, that begins with new moon
    in March (although some have it beginning at the end of February). The
    name is derived from the verb basa, to kindle a fire.
    "

    I want to know if you guys know more about it, cause i havent found anything.

    I'm not so sure about Umbassa being exceptionally special, but I found this to be very interesting.

    Relevant?

    lol naughty urbain
    i dont know about him, but theres something called Dialogue Saint-Urbain, its a jewish community or something like that

    maybe Umbasa is not really special, but unless they didnt "create" a random word, i think there must be a reason for picking up that one

    and im on my 3g, cant watch your vid :c
