    Would you live in Lordran?

    Post by Slarg232 on Wed May 08, 2013 2:47 am

    Assuming you couldn't Hollow.

    Would you become Jerky Faced in order to suffer death and dismemberment time and time again, all while having god like strength/dexterity/intelligence and giant monsters you could fight and kill? Along with other people whom constantly respawn?

    Who would you be, what weapon would you use, and what covenant do you think you would be? Assume that everyone is always invading/cooping with everyone.


    Edit:
    Rules:

    1) Must under SL 100; this is to show that you're competing with a LOT more people over souls. You cannot lose Soul Levels by dying, this just represents more people requiring souls.

    2) Poison/Consumables don't work instantaneously, they require a few minutes to work. Also, you cannot poison through armor, must be skin contact (Exactly like a real poisoned weapon.)

    3) ARMOR DOES NOT GRANT RESISTANCE BONUSES, except Curse. Keep in mind that Poison/Toxin must be breathed in or have skin contact, and Bleed is the same. If you want to resist Poison/Bleed resist, you must have Resistance leveled. Rings that grant resistance are unaffected.

    4) All weapons with an edge now have Bleed 10%. Additionally, Pyrogloves can be used to drain Bleed meter (By cauterizing the wounds silly )

    You know, just try to apply a tiny amount of real world logic in this fantasy land silly

    Sure, it sounds exciting. And I would be a Chaos Servant, I'd hang with Eingyi and snuggle with The Fair Lady.

    Do I feel the pain of death when I die over and over again? Cause if so no way I'm not going.

    Otherwise I'd probably hang around duke's cause I like books, and kidnapping young girls.

    While unimaginable power sounds great, the fact that almost every (un)living thing on Lordran wants you dead, gruesomely so, I think I stick with my ordinary life here on earth.
    A week in the undead burg perhaps...

    immortality sucks, its even worse if its the kind where you can be killed over and over but not die, i'd rather not be another prometheus thank you very much, frankly all going hollow is, is going crazy from the sheer pain of dieing and not being able to escape it no matter what you do, so then you seek to inflict pain on others so that you are distracted from your own pain for a few fleeting moments. the visual difference is just the lack of humanity which seems to be of little importance considering the chosen undead runs around without any with no negative effects.

    Dying hurts, it hurts the mind and the soul. That is why one hollows. If I could not hollow, you'd have to take away my ability to feel, and then i would be something sub-human.

    no, I won't go.

    No.
    But if I was forced, Halberd and Sunbro.

    Better to get people on my side than make enemies later.

    I wouldn't live there, but I would farm enough souls for herculean strength and near-immortality, ability to use magic etc. Then i'd grab a demon's greataxe, full havel's + greatshield, and a TCC. Finally i'd become a darkwraith, go home, and then use my newfound powers to invade and terrorise people (you can't die as a phantom, even outside of lordran).

    I would be this, except those stats would be 999 instead of just 99.

    I would accept only if i have 999 END, 99 of every other stat, DWGR, weed ring, manus catalyst, full havel +10, crystal greatsword +10, havel shield, dark bead, darkmoon talisman, escape death.



    Then i'd feel moderately safe

    Uh, maybe. It would without a doubt hurt to die but if I get to respawn I guess it's fine. Not to mention I get to kill things.

    I'd probably just hang around in New Londo or in Anor Londo.

    Where would I charge my phone and Vita? I don't trust Solaire enough to huck a sunlight spear into the device "just so" to try to get a full, non-asploded battery.

    I don't think I'd go.

    But if I did I would give you the boring answer anyone who's seen a post of mine could guess.....

    I would rock Black Iron, a Great Scythe, Blood or Grass Crest shield, have some miracles on queue and lemon buff at every opportunity.

    I would hang out mostly in the painted world because snow is nice and the decorative corpses on sticks are pretty fabulous.

    If I got super bored I could play Bonewheel Dodgeball in the cellar or go look up Priscilla's mutated wings dress since she doesn't seem to mind as long as you don't attack her.

    Once I tired of that, I'd go on tour with Beatrice and the Smoking Catalysts. Probably summon her a bunch of times to see how many hair colors she has (I've done it in game but it'd be easier if I was actually there).

    While I can sympathize with those whom don't want to go to Lordran, I must say I'm surprised by the number; it would essentially be Valhalla, a place of endless battle and glory.

    Also, I'm going to edit in a few more rules to the OP, just to make it a little bit clearer as to how it would work.

    This is what I would roll around with:

    I like to go into the woods on a long hike and pick up a huge tree branch and pretend it's a large club with only 1 durability left. It usually breaks after a few wacks on the tree monsters.

    glory requires an audience, the sheer lack of sane beings who could appreciate your actions nullify that fact that there are many chances to commit great acts. besides glory brings jealously which eventually leads to assasination attempts, no matter how much hp you have you can't survive someone thowing you off a cliff as you sleep. plus even if you respawn, it'd be easy for someone to camp at your respawn point and continue to cause you pain.

    I'd live in the Chasm of the Abyss.
    Nice, dark, cold, and company too.
    I'm loving it.

    All of us would be there. Or at least, the ones who would want to be. So it would very much come down to a boasting system; I can kill the Gaping Dragon with a Greatsword, I can kill Gaping Dragon with a Knife, I can kill the Gaping Dragon with a knife inside of it's belly, stuff like that. Also, for the Assassin's, that's why you have your covenant members silly

    I'd have a katana for cutting flesh,an estoc for piercing armour and a bandit knife to slit your throat while you sleep.I would also throw a fire keeper over my shoulder and run off into the sunset,out of Lordran and force her to create a bonfire somewhere that every living thing isn't trying to kill you.I know I kinda broke the title but oh well,Lordran would get very boring quickly.

    I'm not so sure if I'd willingly go to Lordran. Sure, it'd be fun with monsters and magic and being able to do anything you want, but I'd like to keep my good looks.
