    What do you think about...

    Post by User1 on Sat Feb 23, 2013 10:11 pm

    The lore of Darkroot Garden?
    Personally, I think it is the ruins of Oolacile. Compare the two carefully, and you can see they have the same architecture. They are also comparable in the sense that where Sif is, the Sanctuary is. Where the Forest hunters base is, the elevator to Artorias is.

    Do you agree with me, or think something different? Please, let me know. I'm just speculating, but with evidence.

    Wasn't it already confirmed in the DLC that Oolacile and Darkroot Garden one and same only three hundred years apart with most it gone expect the similar stone structures? Now that I think of it is the Darkroot Basin and the area where we fight the sanctuary guardian the same too?

    Almost identical maps between Darkroot and Royal Wood, including the same bridge (kalameet's first appearance), similar flora, tree monsters (my peeps) stone guardians, Alvina, etc.

    You must be crazy. Clearly there's no connection big grin


    edit: Elizabeth's area=sif arena, kalameet=hydra area, skarekrow ambush area=rolly cats, buildings=buildings, enchanted ember=blue slab? (I know it's still a treasure chest), I can go on too

    Theory:

    Oolice is magic, so after the abyss stuff they just used sparkly light magic to cover or completely incinarate all of Oolice ruins and let the river cover it up

    No Renegade that's stupid.

    Now let me tell you my theory about how Oolacile is actually the Kiln before Gwyn rose from the darkness. Obviously that's what the abyss is, the darkness where Gwyn comes from. That bonfire down there? It will eventually become the Kiln.

    I always tend to associate the darkness of the abyss to gluttony. If left unattended it will eat and eat and will devour everything unless it is contained where it will then consume itself. So I thought that it was contained and devoured the entire land before itself, and what was left eventually become the forest we "love" today.

    The DLC shows a lot of things being corroded and eaten from the ground to Artorias and his gear. In other words Soris.....no way

    Is that "No way" in agreement or against what I said?

    Against but very sarcastic. I think Elizabeth implies the Abyss is taking the land and even when you beat Manus I got the impression she was saying it was still too late for Oolacile. And yeah, lots of evidence of it eating away

    We're just joking around about lore.

    But I think your theory is dumber than mine!

    Ugh! I forgot to say something important about the abyss being gluttony! Sorry. Okay trying to make this sound sensible.

    What I think is that the abyss and the darkness it spreads is it own life form that acts independent for itself with a mindless nature to corrupt and devour everything. Think of it as a virus or parasite that the things it affects can be killed but not the being itself. Manus I think is, or was a being affected as a creature of the abyss' darkness, not the host of the darkness. Killing Manus was like killing Artorias; we just killed a being, or carrier of the abyss darkness that was spreading the abyss' control of the land for it. Everything sentient inside the Township was a carrier of the darkness while the host of the abyss and it's darkness was the land itself. Originally I believe the residents were patient zero of the abyss and it's darkness however by the time we arrived the darkness found a new host in the land itself.

    It is my belief the Abyss and darkness in Oolacile was a foreign part of it's true location that was contained and without being able to spread past Oolacile, had devoured itself, effectively removing life in the area and leaving the land to be overgrown over a three hundred year period to the current state it is now.

    I'll stop being a jerk. I think you have a great theory actually.

    I been thinking of the abyss and what it can do for awhile but hit nothing till I read The Hot Zone and began looking at the abyss from the perspective of a virus or disease. I'm not sure if the Chasm of the Abyss is the real home to the abyss but I am lean towards no and what we see is the result of the darkness transforming what possibly was the Oolacile dungeons into something else. Just what is that I don't know. Taking into what Chester said and add the view of a virus I believe that the residents had messed with a foreign strain of the abyss; Abyss Oolacile as I call it since it broke out there. By judging from the what we can see of the Township and the extent of the Chasm I believe that it was there that the abyss strain broke out from their control.

    Edit: And a foreign strain can't survive without finding a way to travel and if everything in Oolacile was either dead or corrupted and the Abyss Oolacile strain was contained, possible by magic, the strain eventually died off and since three hundred years passed, the remains of the land would be sterile with no chance for the strain to return.
