    Basically, which bit of existing DkS Lore, would you like turned into a full game?

    Personally, I'd like something based on:

    Ring of the Evil Eye wrote:According to legend, this ring contains the spirit of the evil eye, a dark beast which assaulted Astora.
    The strength of the evil eye does not waver, and HP is absorbed from fallen enemies.


    Sounds like an epic struggle as Astora is besieged by an evil and immortal being of darkness~

    Id like to be a Black Night of Gwyn's Army, fighting the dragons. Srsly, it could be awesome. Meeting all the old chars...

    But.. What about SOLAIRE'S QUEST! The Journey of Solaire, from Astora to Lordran, seeking his own sun! xD

    Something to do with the Firekeepers and the bonfires. I want to understand why they came into existence and what powers/fuels them and why exactly certain people are chosen to be keepers.

    Rickert: The Epic Journey

    You walk into a cell and wait for other people to come by and regale you while you act superior. Then get killed by a spear.


    For real though....Shiva would be interesting. His journey from "the east" could be sweet. Co-op the whole time (can summon your friend again if he dies).

    I would just like to say that this is a VERY good thread and very intrigueing.

    And if I had to pick a spin off It would have to be a prequel. Dark Souls has already made a dlc of jumping back in time. A further extension of that would indeed be awesome.

    Why not everything?
    Like, one movie for Solaire, one for Lautrec, one for Velka, one for the dragons(gaping, Seath, everlasting, Kalameet), one for Kaathe and Frampt, one for the witches of Izalith, four knights, New Londo, the Sealers, and the Four Kings....blblblblblblblblbl
    Sure that would make a **** ton of movies

    I'd like a Kings Field V, but its likely not going to happen.

    Dark Souls spin-off, huh? I want:

    An FPS featuring Magnificent Chester!

    After all, he also ended-up in Oolacile under similar circumstances to us (or so he claims), so he probably has a similar hero's tale that could be exploited in a spin-off series.

    (I most definitely did not think of Dirge of Cerberus while writing this comment! silly I did play it, but was too young to remember it--apparently it turned out pretty bad?)

    I think most of the kingdoms in dark souls would make an awesome game that's doomed to have a sad ending(like halo reach).

    if tarkus was a main character I could imagine the game having a last battle exactly like crisis core where he just fights painting guardians forever until he dies.

    Playing as the 4 knights of gwyn would be pretty great too.

    Or:

    An RTS-lite, playing as Gwyn, during the war against the Dragons! You get to control armies of knights, as well as key hero characters (O&S, Artorias & Sif, Ciaran, and Gough, for example), and have special levels where you fight alongside legendary characters (Nito, Seath, Witches of Izalith, etc).


    (C'mon, if it's a spin-off, it's gotta be a different genre! Like MGS: Rising... or FF: Dirge of Cerberus! Or RTS-lite Halo Wars. StarCraft: Ghost--wait, vaporware.)

    I'd love to play an RTS game of the different kingdoms. This might change the lore a bit but I'd love to have a story-line RTS like Halo Reach, but the kingdoms work together to fend off the undead(or however else they kingdoms died.

    - A puzzle game featuring Logan! (It'd just be a very casual game for portables. You'd be helping Logan create spells by solving puzzles. It could involve Vinheim Mage academy--or whatever it was called! Referred-to a few times in Dark Souls. Edit: could be a puzzle-game and management game hybrid. You solve puzzles, and also run the Vinheim school.)

    - Stealth game featuring Ciaran. (Not sure which part of the lore it would expand on... I just wanted some sort of stealth-game spin-off.)

    I love Solaire and Siegmeyer, and I could easily play a game centered on their stories pre-DKS just to find out about them.
