    I got summoned for the first time but wtf just happened??

    Post by Makatak on Tue Oct 02, 2012 5:04 pm

    I used the blue stone in the game in case there were any players that would summon me to help them. I placed it in world 3-2, somewhere near the fog gate leading to the Maneater. And to my surprise, I was summoned. That has never happened before (but then again, the game is 3 years old and I'm only at soul level 40ish). But things got weird:

    A cutscene occured where I teleported into a room with a tower of chairs and a rotten dude sitting on top. His yellow cloak came off, and swirled over my head. Then I got a message saying that I Invaded (insert player's name here) realm or some such, as a black phantom (even though I'm quite sure I used the blue stone??). But I couldn't go anywhere. The only exit out of the room had a fog gate that I couldn't activate. So after running around for about 5 minutes trying to figure out what to do, I gave up and left using the white stone.

    So my question is, wtf just happened? I looked all over the Demon's Souls wiki and this isn't properly explained anywhere.

    O-o

    The Old Monk I guess,summoned you to act as a boss against a player but I can only see a glitch if you used a blue stone.

    This has only ever happened to me using the blue stone. I dont think it's a glitch, just a chance happening.

    Yeah, if you drop a summon sign in the Tower of Latria you can get "summoned" to instead be the old monk boss that another player has to defeat to clear the area. If you had waited around more eventually another player (and possibly summons) would have come through that fog gate to defeat you. It is fully implemented and pretty awesome, actually. And if you win you can get that "custard tornado" headpiece to keep permanently. While you are the boss it is not actually in place, you still get the benefits of whatever head armor you had on before the cutscene.

    As Befowler said, this is not a glitch. Putting down your soul sign to help in this world means Old Monk, who has command over phantoms, can summon you to fight for him.

    It's also a awesome method to practice parry and change world tendency to black. Just bring a book or something else to entertain yourself >.> .

    Interesting that this came up, I'm on my first playthrough and just beat him
    What is he if you dont get someone else?
    I got some guy with twin claws, either way he sucked and might as well have just jumped on my penetrating sword

    You get that guy you fought there, just an AI controlled humanoid enemy with derpy movements.
