    Ornstein, who are you...

    Post by Railage on Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:26 am

    I was just wandering around on the Google and I decided to Google Ornstein and this was the first link

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Ornstein

    So that got me thinking why From named Ornstein that?

    Cause clearly they are supposed to be link considering the name and the fact that Ornstein drops the Leo Ring.

    Someone might need to edit Leo Ornstein's Wiki page and tell the world that in his spare time he was a slayer of dragons.

    I half expected to be reading about his "best friend, Smough, and all their time spent together." That does almost seem to coincidental to not be a coincidence :suspect:

    Smough wasn't his friend >:O! Don't ever say that! If he was really his friend then why does Smough smash him with his hammer?!!?Q.Q... Such brutal love then.. Because when you kill Smough, Ornstein doesn't maim or thrust his spear inside him he just touches him farewell and takes his power through a nice way.

    BTW This isn't suppose to show the emotion of anger so don't read it in a wrong way.

    Maybe Smough was just using Ornstein :affraid: Smough was just trying to get close to him for personal gains... but what...?

    What the archives talk about him being a 20th century russian composer? Lol

    Nice link op, gave me a good laugh thinking about editing in that he is a dragon slayer.

    Yeah, Emergence's thread had this link. If it's on purpose they just liked the name.

    Meanwhile at From HQ:

    Shadowy figure #1 (SF1): I was listening to some great music last night. Classical but chaotic and embraces the age of industry and technology
    SF2: Cool man....what were you listening to
    SF1: Some guy named Leo Ornstein
    SF2: Never heard of him. Pretty cool name though
    SF1: Ornstein?
    SF2: lol.....Leo actually......
    SF1: I like Ornstein better
    SF2: How about Ornstein the Lion?
    SF1: I like it......
    SF2: I wonder who would win in a fight between a lion and a dragon.....
    SF1: Obviously a dragon
    SF2: What if the lion had a spear?

    And the rest is history?

    Anyway.....memorized the music during the Ornstein and Smough fight to see if it was styled after ol' Leo's. I haven't listened to all of his music yet but so far.....no.....it's not.

    That's one of Leo's I listened to and had high hopes for. Regarding
    pinwheel there's some dissonance in both but Ornstein's work is staccato
    and piercing while Pinwheel's has some melodic notes underneath and
    uses longer notes for the primary emphasis. However, I wouldn't rule
    out that there was influence at all. I might have to take a look later
    who did the Dark Souls music and compare them to Leo and/or see if there
    are any similarities. Maybe whoever did the music for the game is a
    fan of Leo.

    Speaking of the Leo Ring... Holy crap, I've killed stupid Ornstein about 20 times and I still haven't gotten it on the one character that I actually want to use it on.

    You know the name Lautrec is also based on someone from the art world? Henri de Toulouse Lautrec. He's a post impressionistic painter. A little person too actually. Maybe From is suggesting that Lautrec kills the firekeeper because he has little guys syndrome and just wants to beat everyone up.

    He does pick on pretty much the most helpless NPC possible. She's locked in a cage and has no tongue

    can you kill em? I've never tried. Nobody ever picks up my movie references on this forum. Maybe like 2 out of 50. I think you probably picked up both too skare
