    Taking a deep breath, you quickly slip around the corner and let the arrow loose!
    You roll a 31.
    The arrow plunges right inbetween two of the dragons scales. It throws it's head skyward, and then breaths fire while screaming an eardrum breaking scream (3).

    You have 583/616 HP
    You are in combat!
    You are equipped like so.
    You have in your inventory.
    1 arrow
    1 firebombs
    2 black sprites.
    7 estus flask+1 charges [Firekeepers Blessing]
    6 homeward bones
    Empty Slot
    [1 silver coin]

    Terrifying Dragon 99%
    The dragons tail lashes back and fourth, then with great force is thrown towards the building you sit in.

    I get out of the building, and make several slashes towards its tail.

    You roll a 7.
    Somewhere in the world, an unfeeling entity called the "Dungeon Master" glares at the dice as they declare that you dodge the upcoming attack. In a roll defying physics, you exploit the i-frames of the fast roll to avoid taking damage. You then roll an 84, which permits you to hit the dragons tail. Your Estoc gets stuck inbetween the scales, and the dragon screams, it roars and flies off, but you have a feeling it will be back.

    Wow. You're a nicer dungeon master than I am!

    My dragons hover, breath fire, indirectly attack by pushing large objects... generally not in sword range; no need.

    I just stole your weapon.

    Also i am trying to be at least somewhat within the spirit of dark souls, by having monsters attack in similarily exploitable manners. Enemies will get a lot ruder as the player gets stronger, but right now a strong wind can kill our hero, and unless i manipulate the dice, the hero can get killed even while i'm trying to be nice and forgiving.

    Good memory!
    You head to firelink shrine and pick up your axe. You consider sitting at the bonfire to level up.

    You have 583/616 HP
    You are not in combat!
    You are equiped like so.
    You have in your inventory.
    1 arrow

    Thinking about the bonfire, I decide to not rest as the more of those undead would spawn, instead I ask Petrus about any Miricles he has for sale

    I decide to buy a heal miracle, in case if I ever run out of estus, and Force. I rest at a bonfire and put 1 point into attunement, and 2 points into dexterity. (How much Souls do I have?)

    Petrus Smiles, and requests you join the Way of the White.
    If you accept, he gives you the following list.

    [10]Heal: Heals 4 points of HP per point of faith of you have, also makes you take 1% less damage per point of faith you have if the healing is interrupted; capping at 40%. Costs 25 copper coins. 5 Casts

    [10]Force: Expels a large shockwave on all sides that can knock around most creatures up to and a bit larger then a human. While the spell does no damage, collision with other objects can turn force into a powerful weapon in certain circumstances. Costs 15 copper coins. 23 Casts

    [20]Great Healing Except: Heals 15 points of HP per point of faith you have, also makes you take 1% less damage per point of faith you have if the healing is interrupted, capping at 80%. Costs 1 silver coin. 1 Casts.

    [0]Seek Guidance: An Ethereal Force seeks your fortune, granting you great intuition in any undertaking! Better Advice With Better Faith Scores. Costs 1 Gold Coin. 2 Casts.

    [40]Homeward: Return to the last bonfire you were resting at. This spell automatically makes you rest at the bonfire. Costs 5 silver coins. 1 Cast.

    Petrus also offers to sell you a unique talisman. This Talisman artifiially boosts your Faith to 25, however your true faith score still restricts the spells you can cast. He says for a friend it is only 2 silver coins.

    @That Person: Souls do not exist. Coins have replaced them as a currency, souls are automatically received as experience points, which is why when seeing the dead body that normally has a soul, i declared "you feel stronger". Also the other person spoke prior to you speaking, so their request was acted upon instead.

    I believe we already join WOW, but I buy force and heal before resting at the bonfire and attuning heal and levelling up dexterity

    Petrus Explains the resting at the bonfire is not necessary! When first acquiring a spell, you can automatically assign it to an unused attunement slot.

    (Two things I believe our helmet broke a while back but we still have it equipped and is that drake encounter near Soltaire at all?)

    No, this is when the dragon first appears on the bridge (in dark souls it flew away).

    I have interesting plans for the drake.
    I am pretty sure you picked up a new helmet. Every enemy has one after all, would be stupid not to.

    Well, bearing in mind that items respawn, I rest at the bonfire and procced back to the near by hollow soldiers being careful not to aggro them, in the hops of obtaining a better shield

    Oh Gaaaaawd.... i seriously don't wanna do this -again- XD

    You walk up the hill, and your old friends the hollow soldiers await you.

    You have 613/616 HP
    You are in combat!
    You are equipped like so.
    You have in your inventory.
    1 arrow
    1 firebombs
    2 black sprites.
    10 estus flask+1 charges [Firekeepers Blessing]
    6 homeward bones
    Empty Slot
    [1 silver coin]

    L.Hollow Soldier 1: 100%
    L.Hollow Soldier 2: 100%
    L.Hollow Soldier 3[HA]: 100%
    L.Hollow Soldier 4[HA][UA][OOS]: 100%
    L.Hollow Soldier 5[EHA][UA]: 100%

    What do you do.

    In my next thread, i will be officially noting what all these things mean, but those are Height Advantage, Unaware, Out Of Sight, and Extreme Height Advantage.
    Height Advtantage is just bad for you. It means they are just overall in a better position to kick your butt.
    Unaware is self explanatory, you see them, they don't see you.
    Out Of Sight either means you've ran out of the monsters line of sight, meaning you can now hide, or that you've played an area so much you already know the creature is there.
    Extreme Height Advantage means they are in an insanely good position if they are an archer of any type, but otherwise, they are too high up to even risk a plunging attack.

    You should increase the difficulty of a foe every time it dies to prevent farming.

    I was genuinely thinking of what would be a good way to do that without also punishing the fact that farming is almost neccesary.

    Before we begin battle, i'd like to note when you sat at the bonfire, we've accumulated 5 levels. Please allocate them before beginning battle, and you have the opening move.
