    Discoveries you only made recently.

    I've discovered (Less discovered, more "Decided") that it's plausible that the Channeler's travel via Iron Boar mount.

    The Iron Boars only show up in areas with Channelers, and every area with a Channeler has an Iron Boar, except for one.

    So if anyone can find some kind of bones/armor to indicate there was a Boar in The Depths at some point, then that'll be pretty much all the proof needed~

    Wow, nice observations

    hehe thanks~

    I also noticed that most of the Petrified Blacksmiths that hold Embers can be linked to Seath (Who's quite well known for this little "Curse" thing he does)... But it's already been stated by the Dev's that they're just there to draw attention to the embers, and there's no lore behind them. T'was most disappointing.

    ^ Really? There's no lore for them?

    I always thought there was some lore, but I never thought they were linked to Seath. I always thought something or someone tried to petrify all the blacksmiths, and only Andre, Giant, Vamos, and Rickert survived. Also, the demon titanite item descriptions mention a blacksmith god.

    I think there was an oppertunity for a little lore. It looks like they missed it. Just like they missed the opertunity for chaos phyromancies requiring someone to be a member of the chaos covenent to use them.

    It makes me want to start another thread...

    I would love to see a Channeler riding around on a boar. That would be hilarious and also a pretty epic miniboss.

    ^ The Slumbering DC is awesome. Combined with the Fog ring it makes for pretty awesome stealth capability

    I hated those fat idiots. Boar riding Channelers are more awesome.

    Chester should learn that it's isn't rude to say ''No'' to every burger.

    Chester is a reference to the fat mininsters actually. I belive there's more references to Demon Souls as Man-Eater Mildred herself is a reference to the black phantom at the Valley of Defilement's second map. Who also walks in a swamp with a giant Butcher's knife.

    ^ Actually there's about a dozen or so characters that are references to Demons' Souls. There are about a dozen weapon references too.

    Nah its actually a funny story, you see that black phantom in Demon Souls was one of the hardest since he could move freely in the swamp as you couldnt. So during the testing of the game one of the developers made that build and name and started invading the other developer's testers in memory of that one phantom lol. they liked the idea and implemented her in the game.

    Might be a bit offtopic, but i just discovered how awesome it is to climb on the back of giant bosses and stab them in the head

    Could be great to do that in DkS2, clibing things (in light armor, that is)

    I had one of them drop me a dark hand and a slab once. They love dropping those dark hands. Probably the item I've fed to Frampt the most. I always end up with a million of em.
