    Hmmm.... What about Iron Tarkus? We only interact with him once for a boss fight. Afterwords we find his body next to the painted world entrance. He's just a random guess while I comtemplate this.

    Im afraid it is not, and in order to get this riddle your going to have to dig deep into the dark souls lore. I will give everyone a hint, so...pay attention to my caps.


    THE PERSON IN THIS RIDDLE, IS WITHIN THE DESCRIPTION OF SOMETHING IN THIS GAME. IT COULD BE A SORCERY, AN ITEM, OR A PIECE OF ARMOR. MAYBE EVEN A WEAPON, WHO KNOWS????

    Id start reading if i were you winking

    I think you got something there. The Pyromancy Power within was created by Carmina but was left as a secret for eons as it would boost your powers but also drain away your life. And the best way to keep a secret? Is if the only person that knows of it's exsistence is dead. It's found in blight town a possibly horrible smelling area with grotesque creatures surronding it.

    Salaman could be the answer~ He uses Pyromancy to increase his own power, and went insane/power mad or something along those lines.

    Not sure if there's much other information about his motivation, or his kin, but yeah~

    Im thinking it may be the nameless blacksmith deity.

    As of now I dont have much to back this up.
    Im currently looking for anything that does.
    Anyone have anything that may concur with this or otherwise?

    I hadn't looked into that one as I was going through the spells first. Power within just stuck out to me. Gonna keep looking, right now looking at weapons.

    Hmmm.. there was once a Sealer that died in Blight town after the flooding of Anor Londo. Forget her name. There was also the one that joined Lautrec the embraced.
    Hmmm... I'm also starting to look at Beatrice.... Died entering the Void... Possibly looking for the power Kaathe offered the four kings. She seeked power. Went through New Londo. The four kings and Artorias had a Malicious fame at the time and still did until we arrived.

    Yulva, in the description for Remedy.
    This stood out to me as well.

    Yeah, Yulva. Yulva fits all but the first verse. She was seeking to ease the suffering of the people of blight town for what she did in New Londo. She was also seeking out the other Sealer that abandon Ingward. However seeking power is not on her agenda.

    Please do answer that because Yulva does not match the first verse at all.

    I may have wrote it down first, but TheAshenPhantom should get some credit for the answer. Plus I didn't give a reason why it was my answer.

    Im going to try and break this down.

    Riddle:

    I seek power, with this flame,
    Seeking thy kinsman, of malicious fame.
    To the land, of rancid breath,
    i shall meet, my lonesome death.

    Answer: Yulva.
    Source, Sorcery - Remedy:

    "Sorcery of the red-robed Yulva, one of the Sealers of New Londo. Reduce bleeding and poison build-up, and undo various poisonous effects.
    One of the New Londo's unique healing sorceries. Perhaps she abandoned her Sealer duty to take her healing arts back to Blighttown."

    If this alone is how you came up with the riddle, then I think it was a little to vague. Now vague is good, but there's nothing about a flame or anything that can be considered a flame, unless you can consider a sorcery as a flame, then its works well. But flame is the last thing that comes to mind when I think of sorceries.

    Now if I were to construct a riddle based purely on the Remedy description, I would have said something like this:

    "I've forlorn my province of fame.
    Seeking thy kinsman of malevolent bane.
    To the land of rancid breath.
    I shall meet my lonesome death.
    Who am I?"

    province = duties
    forlorn = abandoned
    bane = poison
    malevolent = suggests deep and lasting dislike

    It was quite a challenge, and I loved every minute of it.
    I cant wait for the next one.
    If you need someone to bounce ideas around for the next riddle, I would love to be apart of the creative process.

    Yeah, the first verse makes no sense whatsoever. Sorry dude... also, kinsman implies one person, so I'm not too sure on the second line either...

    yes, kinsman does imply one person, but I think that can be overlooked.
    The first line is the only one Im not sure about, unless he can explain something Im missing, or like I said previously, sorcery could possibly be a flame, but that would be a very very vague way of saying it.
    All in all, I still had a blast trying to figure it out.
