    This place is formed through the lore of the game, not the gameplay itself.

    Alrite guys listen up. The rules on the first page stated, that you cannot make a riddle, unless you successfully answer the previous one. It is ZEPHYRLs turn to make a riddle. So unless we want a disorganized flurry of riddles that might end up being ignored, please pay attention and await ZEPHYRLS riddle.

    Okay then, let's see how I do...

    A frightful shock, that sudden loss
    The process started, a ring could stop.
    A fearsome trial, though not a boss
    Take care you must, lest more you drop.

    It was seathe, yet not a boss since you can't kill him

    Being Cursed.

    The shock is the loss of 50% health.
    The increasing bar can be stopped by a ring, cursebite ring.
    The fearsome trial is getting to Ingward.
    And finally, you used to be able to be cursed further.

    Though I could say this could apply to Poison and Blight town swamp. Gah.

    I'm going to take a guess and say humanity.
    You can lose humanity if you die.
    The loss of humanity can be stopped if you equip the ring of sacrifice.
    A fearsome trial could be farming for humanity itself, since it can take quite some time to do.
    You have to be careful when you are human, because if you aren't you end up losing it, thus starting the cycle of farming it over again.

    Yeah but you have to die in order to progress.

    I honestly think PsychicHobo got it with "Curses".
    My next guess would be Toxic status as it is much more frightful than normal poison, Poisonbite rings can give you a larger window, quite a fearsome trial if you don't have Blooming Purple Moss, and great care should be taken to conserve your heals if you have to march back to a bonfire while affected.

    Some very nice answers!

    Nobody's gotten it right yet, though they've interpreted parts of it correctly

    The first verse most likely references death throughout the game, but it doesn't actually talk about our loss but the loss of something else which is probably an item. What are things we lose through the game? For the most part it's normally souls and humanity so its possibly one of the two unless if there is something I looked over.

    I'm still thinking that the ring of sacrifice and the rare ring of sacrifice are the rings mentioned in the second verse. Mainly because these rings are able to keep us from losing our humanity and our souls from when we die, hence keeping us from going through the process of collecting our humanity.

    The third verse, I admit, confuses me. A lot of things can be considered fearsome trials like: PVP, leveling up in later levels, and bonewheels. All of these are trials that we go through in the game and all very frustrating at times. So I have no clear answer to this verse.

    The fourth verse warrants caution as we progress in the game, because if we aren't the more we'll drop of this item. This brings me back to the second verse, two items can be protected by the ring of sacrifice, humanity and souls. (Unless of course your using the rare ring of sacrifice and you can cure a curse) However, while I had the idea that it could be a curse the cursebite does not stop us from becoming cursed it just elongates the time it takes before we are cursed.

    Using the simple fact that I've already guessed Humanity and gotten it wrong I'm going to guess it's souls.

    The last verse made me think of the prisim stones for some reason. Probably not right but reading this I thought of the crystal cave and traversing over the invisible path using the stones.
