    No.

    Yes. The screenshot proves it, a player wearing a long black cape. How can you argue against that? Because you like to argue against everything.

    What screenshot?

    How do you know thats a playable character and not an NPC?

    Thanks for the pic though. big grin

    Also, it kinda looks like an early rendering, maybe for the landscapers inspiration?

    Can you elaborate on the pic Frank?

    Thanks in advance.

    We can't see the front either, it may be more of a full cloak, or frayed robe somewhat like the Gold Hemmed or Logan's outfit, it could even be something similar to a Poncho.

    It also doesn't confirm a cape/cloak slot.

    This. The character matches the Work in Progress pics almost exactly, so very unlikely it's a player.

    If it is a slot however, similar to rings, in most cases you will then want to wear a cape for its stats. Or a cloak. Rings don't effect the appearance of characters, and even if they did they are a very minor detail. Similar to a necklace, a necklace slot I wouldn't mind since if it was visible it would not be noticeably so. A cape though, everyone running around in capes? It'll make Dark Souls feel like World of Warcraft, or a game involving superheroes.

    Good point on the Dark Souls "Super Hero" posability.

    Thats why I say, if there are capes, they need to be cosmetic only.

    In a weird way its like the Katanas in Dark Souls,
    If you dig the look, use em.
    If think they don't fit with the theme of Dark Souls, then dont't use them.

    Unlikely? I think it's certain that's the player character. There are several reasons to believe so.

    First of all, all the screenshots published include the player character, wearing different armors.
    Second, the character is wearing the chestpiece of the undead axe-man enemy (shown in some of the artwork released), but a different helmet (have you ever seen an npc wear armor pieces from separate armor sets in a Souls game?).
    Thirdly and most importantly, that room is visited in the gameplay demo and besides there not being any enemies, Tanimura even mentions that this main lobby of the mansion does not have any enemies beside the skeleton dragon. That very balcony is also seen in the demo and it was empty.

    There is no reason to think it's not a player. We can rest assured that the players can wear capes this time, provided it belongs to an armor. Besides, would they really have implemented such nice wind physics for the clothing (as seen in the gameplay) if they weren't going to include longer clothing that can sway in the wind in an awesome manner?

    *edit* Here is the armor
    http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/269382_433307120075671_678071845_n.jpg
    Looks exactly like the same long black cape that is torn at the bottom

    Thanks Frank, interesting. I say its still speculation, but very well thought out speculation on your behalf for sure. It does look like that armor.

    However, if I have a cape...

    ...I want to fly. cheers j/k

    ***EDIT***

    Actually, I would really like to fly. bounce

    Yeah, just speculating, but I think if enemies have capes with physics, we likely will too happy

    Not so much "capes" for me, but a mantle showing that you've achieved something. Like the emblem of a covenant, or the symbol of your starting race.

    I like the idea but they shouldn't have any special effects to them. Imagine this


    Cape: 25% stam regen
    Shield: 10%
    Ring: 25%
    Blossom: 50%


    110% Stam regeneration.... ~Cringe~

    To be honest I could see capes coming in as another special effect slot (like rings), or even as simply a defence measure to balance out the weaknesses in the armour you've chosen..

    They have an improved physics engine on next game by looks of it, so could be pretty cool... I think maybe it could look stupid if light armour wearers start whacking giant capes on, but there's always those who aren't style conscientious in souls silly

    How about a window that lets you admire your character, instead of having to run up to a wall and jigger with the camera?

    OP Solution: Armors that can be upgraded to have a cape (no different stats).

    Capes would be nice. Every other rpg has them now so why not.


    and about rings, I have ten fingers and ten toes. I want 20 ring slots.

    Well What is it

    don't forget earrings and piercings, that gives you pretty much a ring for every square inch of skin on your body
