    I'm new to the series, but I keep up with this guy's weekly columns on Fridays, and this one made me really want to play even more. I'm a bit scared now. :[

    Pick deprived starting class and choose pendant as starting gift.

    Also, that first guy that you are going to see at Firelink Shrine? Hit him in the face.

    Trying to show this person one of the hardest starting classes Archmage? Love it but really let's leave this person here to play how he/she wants and tell us what effect the game has.

    Yes, welcome & thanks for the link.

    Cat's right, there's a lot of great info here and many helpful people.  However, I would caution you against using unsolicited advice, presented in an over-eager fashion after you have revealed you're not very experienced.  Remember this is Dark Souls -- fear the troll.  Never bow to someone you don't know who's closer than 25 feet from you (and without knowing what's behind you) and never pick up items near a cliff in PVP.

    Hi and welcome.
    Don't listen to the fools above you. They're a bunch of hungry trolls. Do whatever you want, enjoy the game.

    And if you happen to be on PS3, send me a message if the game gives you too much trouble. winking
