    Kiln of the First Flame hidden area?

    Post by PlasticandRage on Sun Nov 18, 2012 3:14 am

    So I've just gone down into the Kiln to deposit the LV with Frampt and when I was walking back to Frampt to return to Firelink I noticed some orange soap stone signs in an area I've never seen them before. They're up above me along the side of the tower type structure that holds the 10 urns behind Frampt. It kinda looks like somebody manage to access the little walkway with the stairwells that are off to the side of the platform the lord vessel is on. Any of you guys know anything about this? I took a picture on my phone if anyone wants to see it. I'm trying to make the jump now but I can't seem to make it.

    I don't think it's possible to make the jump. Cmon guys somebody else must have seen this before.

    I'll do it right now. I wanted to wait to see if anyone actually showed any interest before I motivated to upload it off my phone. My first thought was that it was an OSS message posted way up in Firelink that I was just seeing through the ceiling, but there's a load screen between that room and Firelink. I'd assume they're entirely separate areas in that regard ya know?

    Okay here they are. I took a couple photos so you could see it in relation to the layout of the room a little better.

    If this was on PC it wouldn't be that surprising, since I see hovering messages in places you shouldn't be able to go quite often there. This though? No clue how anything like this could be possible. Mysterious.

    Must be frustrating to see a message like that without being able to read it lol

    Yeah this was on PS3. I don't often see messages in unreachable spots like that. In fact I don't recall ever seeing messages I couldn't get to before. Oh you and I both know it's praise the sun. It has to be. Or possibly 'Here!'

    I tried to make that jump a good 20 times, being from the main platform to the side walkways with the little stairwells. I'm pretty positive it's impossible. I had it down I was jumping right at the last second before I fell and I was just brushing the other platform. It's literally inches out of your reach. So I don't know. We could be missing something here.

    This is an old, sort of glitch I suppose. I can't remember where, but if you put messages down somewhere they appear above the shrine. I can't remember if it was Firelink itself or somewhere else where the messages are put though.

    I've heard this is a glitch with areas being stored near each other in the game data. What you're seeing is messages left at Firelink that have kind of bled through the floor. Since the Lordvessel chamber data is stored next to Firelink Shrine in the "code geography" you're just seeing these messages that have bled through.

    ^ That was my first thought. The fact that there's a load screen between them was what threw me. There are definitely areas of the game where you can see across distances from one area into another and see stuff like this, but because they're not traditionally 'connected' I didn't know what to think. I knew somebody here had to have seen something like this before.

    I think we determined that the elevator to undead parish overlaps with the firelink chamber, so messages placed at the bottom of the elevator can be seen from down there.
