    Covanent Idea (Thief Guild-ish)

    Post by NPCWhiteMage on Mon Jun 18, 2012 12:31 pm

    So, after playing Dark Souls for the last few weeks and spending time on the forum, I've been struck with an idea for a Guild.

    I was thinking a Theif / Merchant Guild. I know there are players that like to farm (My best friend being one of them) and I know that once they have farmed, and they have sleged their material lust, the farmer ends up dumping the character and starting over, trying to find a more streamlined way of farming. (This of course does not apply to all farmers, just the ones I have personal experience with)

    Well, I finally have come up with an idea to keep farmers interested while at the same time benefitng players around them...and thus the idea for the Theives / Merchant Guild* was concieved.

    The idea is essentially having a guild of farmers who would trade their vast amount of wares for humanity, lost souls, or other items that might gain a return/profit. This guild also caters to PvP where as members with the Dark Hand are encouraged to invade and steal humanity.

    Of course, I am still expounding on the idea and feel that, if done properly, it would be a fun guild, and not to mention helpful for newer players.

    If anyone has an idea, comment, concern, or snide remark; please comment. I really think this idea has potential and would love to know what people think.

    I'll also be able to answer any questions as they come up.

    *I know I keep saying guild, or at least in my mind I do. After playing MMO's and TES, not to mention my love for Fairy Tail, for so long, the word 'Guild' has been steampressed into my brain and it just feels right to call the Cov's a Guild.

    IMPORTANT EDIT

    I have decided to go ahead with this covenant as a sister/rival to Zena's Peddlers.

    I am in the process of hammering out the details, and if anyone has suggestions, comments, concerns, or etc pleace do not hesitate to let me know.

    The updated premesis for the covenant is a Black Market and Theive's Covenant.

    Still needs a name, so suggestions are welcome.

    Thank you for the link! I probably should have done some research before posting my idea. :oops:

    However, what I'm reaching for is a bit different, as there is a thin line between theives and peddlers.

    I want the members of my caste to invade people and steal humanity, while at the same time, turning face and selling hard humanity to players in need of it. Besides, friendly sales competition is a good thing, isn't it?

    Maybe I'll get into contact with Skare and see if we can't set up a friendly agreement.

    Thanks again for the link.

    That would be cool if I could set that up with Skare. Peddler VS Theif duels, if Theif wins, Peddler has to drop a few items for the Thief to "Steal". Vice versa if the Ped wins.

    EDIT:

    I also have a question. Does using a Dark Hand grant you 'soft' humanity? or actual humanity in your inventory?

    EDIT 2:

    Ok, so, I've decided that I will start up this covenant as a sister/rival covenant to Skare's Zena's Peddlers. There will be much fun to be had.

    Also, while the covenant lacks a real name, it is essentially a covenant for a Black Market and Thieves.

    Lol sure its - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=4462280083859715

    From there you can do anything.

    The cross bows are meant to be the guns

    Avelyn is the TMP/Matilda

    Sniper CB- Is sniper rifles

    Light- Pistols

    Heavy- Shotgun


    Also you should go around most of the tome unarmed. But the Target shield is the back pack .

    The Dark Hand is good for shielding and with two you can make decent amounts of Humanity through joke invasions. You should be a DW for infinte invasion sales.

    Also keep hornet and a knife on hand incase they dont want to play fairsies on the trade. Some people tried to have me drop stuff them OHKO me.... suffice to say that never happened especially when I jabbed a Chaos Bandit knife into their spines....
    And pyromancies and other spells/miracles are your grenades.

    UPDATE:

    I have a Codex written up about the code of honor and loyalty that is expected amongst thieves and merchants when they are on the job.

    I also have the "paths" of the covenants started. Hopefully soon I'll be fleshing out more details.

    I need ideas for names.

    Here is what I'm thinking so far:

    Fangs of the Fog
    Thieve's Den
    The Black Testament



    I need ideas!!
