    A dry ash lake?

    Post by DoughGuy on Thu Apr 05, 2012 10:17 pm

    I've noticed in the prologue that the land of the dragons i.e. what we all assume is ash lake, is not flooded. At the beginning you cant see any water. Later when gwyn is throwing his lightning spear you can see theres dry land all in front of them. I think ash lake was flooded afer the dragons lost the war. What do you guy sthink?

    On a synbolic not this makes perfect sense. What better way to represent the last few dragons resistance by making them live in water, the opposite of fire?

    I dont know. If you think about it, this game has very little association with water. In fact, really the only places there is water is new londo and ash lake. Who would have the power to flood the whole of ash lake?

    Anyway, i understand what you're saying, and it is a great observation on your part, but i dont know who could pull off the flooding.

    Well I would say the Sealers HOWEVER that does not actually make sense. After the fire's victory over the dragons they would not flood the dragons realm with the element that triumphs over theirs. Therefore it is obvious the remaining dragons flooded the ash world in order to protect themselves from the fire.

    Maybe the witch of Izalith evaporated all the water during the war?

    thats pretty cool thinking DoughGuy. they way you broke it down makes sense with the everlasting dragon being there of all places. the dragons lost the war and thus used the oposite of fire to protect wat was left of there home.

    It's hard for me to believe that few left dragons managed to fill an "endless" expanse with water.....I don't know through...maybe aa natural or magic effect...

    Maybe it kept evaporating because there was fire everywhere by the trailer's time, when it was over, and the dragons/witches stopped burning **** and the flame faded, water could finally settle there

    Are we even sure that what fills ash lake is even water. It looks like water but that doesnt mean it is water. Ive always thought that the liquid the hydra is in is some kind of liquid form of ash. or something along those lines. never thought it was water

    It would certainly be an amusing play on words.

    When we look at the bottom of the world in the intro, we're seeing what it looked at in the Age of Ancients, before the First Flame.

    The First Flame was the first disparity. What's the opposite of fire?
