    More importantly, how is it a garden without sunlight?! Shouldn't all the plants have, you know, died?

    Oolacile was the land of light magic. Symbolically by making it dark they show how far it has fallen. Also there is no reason to think its dark all the time. You are a character on an adventure, time passes. However instead of having an active clock FROM decided to show you how you were moving through the world by darkening and lighting some areas to show the passage of time.

    You could put this down to the abyss and the rise of darkness. It used to be royal wood, until the darkness took hold. Then it became darkroot garden.

    Maybe the darkness underneath keeps the plants alive without sunlight.

    The same thing I tell my stepdaughter when I don't want to think of, or don't know an answer:


    Magic big grin

    It's not night; the fog is that thick. I can actually see the fain glow of the sun from in the garden. It does look like the moon, though.

    No offence, but your letters are kinda hard to read against this background.
    You're probably right. I never thought about it, i always just assumed something blotted out the sun like leaves or fog.

    I find it interesting how you can see the sky of anor londo from where you fight the gargoyles

    Yes

    Anyways i think it is a combination of the larger foliage locking out light of lesser foliage, the part you travel in being in a vally with steep cliffs to block out the light and residual dark magic from the abyss.

    i would say it is because when you are there you are hunting something called the "moonlight butterfly" now i may be wrong but to me that sounds like a nocturnal animal. it is also in the "darkroot" basin to me that sounds like a place best visited at night.

    Pretty sure Arcantia is right... The fog is just that thick. Maybe some leftover abyss too, who knows.

    Kind of weird how Anor Londo can turn dark... but the rest or Lordan doesn't. 😕

    I would have been even more depressed if Firelink Shrine became dark, and no longer the safest place of Lordran
