    Roleplay Build: Ghost of the Nameless Swordsman

    Post by Ghadis_God on Mon Sep 24, 2012 1:33 am

    So I originally got the idea to do a "White Samurai" as a faith build, using white robes as samurai cosplay, a Divine Iaito, and miracles. However, I decided to take it one step farther with the Fog ring; now I'm a ghost samurai! I've been getting more and more into roleplay builds recently, as I feel like going for the "best" stuff either makes me overconfident and frustrated that I can't use anything more useful when I lose, or lets me get sloppy, thinking I have some advantage over other people and I can afford to make mistakes.

    http://tinyurl.com/8vrkd9p

    Instead of playing totally to win, now I'm playing to have fun, to do the best I can with limited equipment or try to stay in character. And no roleplay is better than when you make the character yourself. I'm planning out a ton of lore behind this guy, and if I see any interest from you guys I'll write some serious stuff and post it, but this is just the build for now.

    I'm wasting points on the Iaito because its moveset is closer to actual katana technique and it looks humbler than the more extravagant Uchi. The Fog ring fits the theme and actually has its uses despite the nerf, which I won't describe here because I like to play my cards close to my chest in terms of PvP technique and knowledge that's not readily available or common. Armor is pending, might switch the chest or leggings depending on what fits the best, shield is pending but I've never used it and kind of want to try it out. Might go with Heater or GCS, or just do fist parries if they don't fit.

    Anyway, I think there might be a user cov in the works here once I make this build and try it out, I'll certainly be bringing this toon through the DLC before my others, and again, if anyone is interested, I'll post a lot of written lore about this guy.

    Sounds damn good man. I actually used to be extremely situated in the MinMax camp and loved to make super effective builds back in DeS days....

    Now in the last few years I developed a drive to write and now every character I ever make has to have a backstory, style, specific weapons, and personalities that affect how I play the game.

    E.G- On my darkwraith, who is a Carimite serial killer, Im ruthless, while on my NK builds in the sifty co oper who vanishes only to open up a passageway or shortcut.

    I find playing with these restrictions and characters in mind makes Dark Souls worth replaying.

    I feel you man, I'm starting to plan a cov designed around roleplay, where the requirement for joining is to write and post lore for your character and to play as that character while maintaining a unique-ish kind of build. We'd host duels and tourneys perhaps, but also do all kinds of other events based on what people agree to, since it would be an alliance of characters rather than a group with one mission. We'd have Gravesworn, Dragons, Sunbros, Darkmoons and Forest hunters, or people with no covenant save this. Maybe the only requirement would be to use the Fog Ring, and lore-wise our characters would be bound together by the common ground of actually being ghosts. This is far from being reality though, but look for it sometime in the future.

    I love the lore ghadis. Almost all my toons have a bit of lore. The one I'm using right now is an occult swordsman with lots of faith. The clothes look awesome. Your build would be perfect if it had 50 Faith. By the way you might want to change the gloves to smaller ones (Traveling Gloves maybe) so that the sleeves don't fold up.

    Good point about the sleeves, I'm not quite sure what the full set will look like though so I'll see. I might swap the waistcloth for maiden's skirt, or even the chest for Maiden's. Painting guardian hood might look just right as well, I want to try them all on and see. Smaller gloves would probably be the fingerless Witch's Gloves for this character.

    Would you chuck up a teaser or something like that here or in the RP Thread?

    If fed wont oversee it I might start up a new one.


    Also Im stupidly over attached to all of my characters now

    The implacable Avrik "the Crow" Tyrhannos, the Successor of Ciaran's powers Riel Valerion, Mistrustful Cyrian Endel the Bane Knight, and Letos, a warrior with a grudge against mages, and Yvette his companion and sorceror. (Btw Letos has 49 A4 pages of Lore.....)

    All his life, his footprints had traced the path of righteousness; the path of the gods. He could close his eyes on a cold, bitter night and they would be with him; friends nearer than flesh, teachers above even the crucible of experience, and daimyo nobler than the Emperor in his painted halls. Yet unbeknownst to him he was famous; the ronin in white who wandered on a wayward path, to an end known only by the gods.

    So was said of Hato no Shirou, the samurai who channeled the miracles of heaven.

    His hair was white, and though his years marched nearer to their mortal end it had always been so; from the fat child who cried not once through the warmth of his infancy to the thin faced man whose grey eyes stared into the snowy nights from the shelter of a cave or hollow tree, his head was crowned with the starkest white, soft as the dove that gave him his name.

    And so it was, that when the ring of fire burned in his heart with his very humanity for tinder, he set out in the footsteps of the gods, on the hard road and long west to their legendary birthplace: Lordran. His soul, however, felt hollower by the day.

    Awesome story, just had to add GLGS Dance for the ghost feeling. -150 HP though. +1

    Nice alternate build. I don't need 4 slots though, and 24 End limits stamina as well as armor, I'd have to be sure of what I'm using before I went with that. 10 levels of Faith only gets me 20 extra AR for the Iaito, but it seems like it might make a difference, 457 sure does feel like a step up from 437. I actually had force for a reason, katanas are fast enough to cast it, stagger the opponent, and hit with a quick slash, like the kick. I'm trying to incorporate miracles into combat in a way that's not just "spam WoG". I'm somewhat considering just dropping Vit to 40 and boosting Faith to 45, but I do like 1700 HP. Maybe lorewise, the extreme faith works better too.

    And it's less a story than just an introduction to the character, a little tidbit like Viral asked for. He ends up becoming a ghost on the way to Lordran, but that's yet to be told. There's also room for his exploits as a ronin back in the east.

    Nah 20 AR for 10 Faith stats doesn't seem worth to me, I'm doing it for the offensive miracles.

    I wish I could check out the mugen, but it sounds like a fun build. I tottally agree with you, OP builds aren't as OP when you think they're OP . It's the struggling builds and the wandering abyss walkers that are the real OPians.

    I want to actually make this build first, then I'll start the cov. I think I ought to be able to do it in a week, I'll probably have it up by next Monday.

    Shirou does mean white but it's also a legitimate male name in Japanese, and he is the white samurai, so...
