    Why do people think DkSII is a prequel?

    Post by hey its andres on Sat Apr 13, 2013 4:03 am

    The developers have implied, quite heavily, that the game is going to be a sequel. Not only this, but why do people think we'll see DkSI areas (Painted World) in DkSII? From has actually said, pretty blatantly, that it will NOT take place anywhere near Lordran.

    I'm sorry I see all these hypotheses about how it's a prequel, takes place before Age of Fire (How can it if you're undead?), and will be set in Lordran. Please someone, if you believe in any of these please give me some reasons and evidence for them. Prostration

    I think it's the existence of the bonfires that lead people to believe it will be a prequel. The idea being that the fire's been freshly kindled by Gwyn.

    Also, the preponderance of dragons leads many to surmise that this an era before the events of DkS1 where there only exist 2 dragons (Kalameet is from an earlier age).

    Long bridge that leads to a castle on top of a "mountain", it's enough to assume that it could be the intact painted world

    It could also be a prequel because there are so many drakes, whose heads are later found in Anor Londo, in DkS1, suggesting that most of them are dead, and the rest was pinned down to a single location
    It would suggest that the lords hunted dragons first, then drakes, or that the latter didn't even exist by that time

    There's also a slight "facial" resemblance between drakes, and Seath the Scaleless, which could also mean, as stated by ENB, that he created them in an attempt to recreate the scales of immortality

    Maybe the game is set right before when the Witch of Izalith tried to recreate the first flame, Seath lost his mind, the four Kings were corrupted by the abyss, pinwheels emprisoned Nito in his tomb, and Gwyn sets out with to link the flame, with half of his knights with special anti-demon weapons to defend him from eventual fire spamming fatties

    even if its not near lordran doesnt mean ariamis cant be in it ariamis isnt actually in lordran the one you go to in DkS1 is just a painting OF ariamis made to imprison priscilla. peronally i think astora is going to be involved in it somehow since the elite knight armor is in it again and the elite armor is from astora

    Please, define "Lordran"
    Where is it? does it include New Londo? Anor Londo? Oolacile? Izalith?

    i think you misunderstand im not saying its NOT part of lordran im saying just because the magic painting is there doesnt mean it IS part of lordran . it very well could be but noone know since you dont know if the painting takes you to the real ariamis or if its just a mystical painting that holds the image of ariamis in it (if that makes sense)

    I thought Ariamis was the painter....
    But the thing is we don't know what is lordran, is it a country? is it the whole world? are Astora, The Great Swamp, Catarina, Carim, and all the other countries actually part of Lordran?

    I'm glad someone else thought this as well. The painting is just that, a painting with the ability to live in it. This location with drakes everywhere could be called the Fort of Ariamis or something which is located on the other side of the world, 6000 miles away from Lordran.

    Lordran is a land, a kingdom. Remember the Asylum where you start the game is not part of Lordran.

    Lordran is a section of the world. I doubt it includes Carim, Astora, and all other locations mentioned in DkS because character from those land venture to Lordran. If they were already in Lordran why would they leave? I can see how the inspiration for the Painted World could be a spot in DkSII, but I doubt that it is the "Mansion of the Dragons" that some claim is. In the first trailer everyone said that the castle is Lordran and if you look back it's clearly the mansion of the Dragons. If the "Painted World Origin," for lack of a better name, is in DkSII then I would expect a hidden, remote fortress of Velka.
