    Dark Souls Timeline

    Post by Madara on Thu Jun 14, 2012 6:53 pm

    I think that since there has been alot of speculation we should accumulate a timeline of Dark Souls. This will only be based on things we already know and anything else would be labelled speculation. All i'm definitively putting down are what we Happened at the beginning and headings dictating major events in the story, like mile stones in the story. All we need to do now is detail it with things such Exiles, Duties bestowed at while time Exodus or the Gods,etc etc.

    BC= Before Chosen
    AC= After Chosen

    ----The Lords Dragon War

    Spoiler:
    -------Fire was born and The Undead begin to first spawn

    -------Gwyn, Nito, The Witch of Izilith and the Furtive Pygmy find the soul of lords in the fire

    -------Gwyn, Nito, The Witch of Izilith and the Furtive Pygmy(Along with the assistance of others i.e. The Four Kings, Havel, Seath, etc.) band together to challenge the dragons

    -------These five beings bring the dragons to the brink of extinction and usher in The Age of Fire


    ----The Spoils of war are dealt

    Spoiler:

    -------The Witch Izilith and her children go deep underground

    -------Gwyn(and possibly his children) create Anor Londo

    -------Seath is given The Regal Archives

    -------Gwyn along with the help of The Four Kings create New Londo(speculation)

    -------The Four Kings are given control of New Londo


    ----Flame of Chaos is born

    Spoiler:
    -------The Witch Izilith is engulfed by the flame she created to replace the first flame. From this flame gives birth to chaos and the demons. The Witch Izilith(along with the possiblity of some of her children)is deformed into the core of the Bed of Chaos.

    -------The Witch Izilith's Son and Daughters become deformed into Demons and the Fire Sorceries are lost in the Flame of Chaos.

    -------Quelaana escaped but was possibly effected by the Chaos because only people of powerful pyromancy can see her.

    -------Other Daughters escaped the transformation of the flame of Chaos(speculation)

    -------The Bed of Chaos extends its branches to what is now known as Blighttown in the form of The Great Hollow which creates the great blight pus,the tar of blight town.

    -------Ingui comes to Blighttown exiled from the great swamp and comes to blighttown, he drinks the blighttown pus only for the white lady to show humanity in order to save his life. She becomes infested with eggs and becomes a firekeeper.

    -------The Chaos servant covenant is formed.

    *-------At some point The Daughters of Izilith forge a ring to protect their younger brother, which he drops into the Lava to create the Centipede demon


    ----The Four Kings turn to Dark

    Spoiler:
    ------- Darkseeker Kaathe, the primordial serpent lures The Four Kings to turn to Dark(speculation)

    ----Gwyn Rekindles the fire in the Kiln - 1000 BC

    Spoiler:
    -------Anor Londo falls into Twilight

    -------Gwynevere Leaves Anor Londo

    -------Gwyndolin creates an illusion of Anor Londo from before Gwyn left

    I didn't think the four kings turned to chaos? The abyss is anything but chaotic. its dark for a start. No demons or fire.

    Chaos is born before the fire is rekindled.
    The 4 kings turn to the dark before the fire is rekindled.

    How do we know know that though? Is the dark a reason for it being rekindled?

    Also guys these are just milestones we need to to start filling in the stuff inbetween.

    Either way that makes sense, i think the forging of the chaos flame is linked somehow to the 4 kings myself so this makes sense.

    Did Gwynevere leave Anor Londo? I'm under the impression she never existed at all and is entirely a creation of Gwyndolin.

    It says she left with her husband.

    Also, I don't know how much you care about specifics, but it has been 1000 years since the flame "died", and 200 years since the birth of pyromancy.

    I could have sworn I had seen something about him being the father of pyromancy. I know Quelana is the true "mother", but I could have sworn Salaman was the "creator".

    ^No Quelana did. Before pyromancy was the flame sorceries, now lost. When the chaos flame was born the fire sorceries were lost. Then the first flame was relit and Quelana learnt to harness its power to create pyromancy.

    Speaking of pyromancy, why does the spell Fireball feel the urge to point out it works well on corporeal beasts? The only incorporeal beings in the game are the ghosts...

    I'm going to put up the annotations BC and AC representing Before Chosen and After Chosen of events we are given an actual time and use AC for moments in-game you don't see happen but you know what happens. I'm putting that speculation about about 200 years ago that pyromancy was created but label it as speculation. I'll also put up about the Fire Sorceries being lost in the flame of chaos. Now we are getting places silly If you have any theories about events that happened put them out there and we can just keep updating and just label as "speculation" big grin
