    Grigori Rasputin would have been great in Dark Souls, considering he took more abuse IRL then most characters can in game.




    Incidentally, I believe I managed to save Solaire without being a Chaos Servant. Granted, this ability may be common knowledge, and I just assumed Chaos Servants was the only way to save him.

    I can't confirm I have saved him, but I THINK I might have.

    I forgot to talk to him in Anor Londo, and continued on. He wasn't at the bonfire after the Centipede, and I ran through and opened the door. I then went back to Anor Londo and he was still at the fire. I am guessing that since I already killed the Sunlight Maggot and opened the door, I should still be able to save him, since he hasn't been corrupted yet.

    Unfortunately, I ran out of time tonight, but I should be able to confirm or deny this tomorrow.

    Hmmm. You must go back to speak with him and see what happens.

    Talking to him at Anor Londo yielded the typical conversation. As I said, by all logic he SHOULD be saved now, however the game may be coded to prevent this method.

    I'll peek my head in and check the tunnel and the bonfire after the centipede demon tomorrow afternoon/evening when I get home.

    If you kill the maggot before talking to him, he won't be taken over by it and you'll be able to summon him at Gwyn. You don't have to be a Chaos Servant to do this, it just makes it easier via the shortcut.

    So it's known too be possible that way, and I just assumed that you have to open it from the outside to save him, alright.

    So remember how I was talking about the idea of Arch Trees, and the trees of Darkroot having a magical property because of their resistance to magic...

    Read the description of any wooden round shield, it confirms my theory. Yay! cheers

    Any of them. The warrior round shield, the green, or even the red and white shield says so. However, the Demon Great Hammer also says something else.

    It's made from Stone Archtrees but it doesn't have any magic resistance (10).

    why did this thread die out? It's a brilliant idea researching the magics in the game.. Did you guys just run out of things to reference?

    Just thought I'd come here because I'm going to be referencing this work in some lore stuff I'm writing, the information is rather helpful cloudyeki, thanks for bringing it all together Bow

    Did Serious just necro bump a thread? Good question though. Think we all got occupied with other things and forgot to come back to it.

    I did because it deserves it. I know it got dead and buried but the magics of the game are often neglected by the lore theorists. Only here and Cook ever tried to fathom their inception. It's one bit I am interested in, though sadly unless cloudyeki wants to, continuing this would not work well silly

    He was the in game driving force for sure. I'm more of the linking things to outside references kinda guy. If we talk about it enough maybe everyone will come back.

    I think you should post a theory about magic. He'd be so impressed that he pulled you into the lore he'd jump at the chance to keep it going

    I'll see if I can think of one.. Thing is his theory is rather convincing, though I could try go into further detail with it..

    I'd be more than glad to pass it on to you serious and do some of my own studies for magic and such.

    We all got distracted by different things, like work and repair stuff x_x
