    Random Things I Noticed

    Post by About8547Souls on Tue Jul 24, 2012 1:05 am

    So I was looking at that 'missing' statue where you fight Ornstein and Smough. And I shot it to determine its' height. (Since you can still shoot it even though it isn't there.)

    It is small, about two bricks shorter than the ledges on the side. It is also on two pedestals rather than one like Gwyn or Gwynevere. I'm thinking it was originally a statue of Gwyndolin, but the developers ditched the skin because they decided to leave his statue out. Probably because Gwyndolin never really shows up much in the game, and he wears the mask for being a shemale or deformed or whatever. So yeah, probably just a whim of the developers.

    OR, it could have been a statue of the God of War, the first born of Gwyn. But they had it taken out since he did lose deity status and all of that.

    -

    On another note, their are some Golden Doors in the room with Gwynevere. On those doors is a little sun symbol with a face on it, a lot like the one Solaire wears. In game, it says that emblem was the symbol of the God of War. So the emblem on those doors is probably the original look of the emblem. Just food for thought.

    The anor londo door is interesting. Tests have been done on the statue and we believe its a statue of Gwyndolin hidden by magic. If it was a statue of the god of war it wouldnt exist there at all. FROM does everything for a reason.

    I think a Sun symbol is present in one way or another for all of the children if I'm not mistaken. Although the ones in the chamber for Chesty LaRue are suspect since the whole thing is a sham from Gwyndolin. Also, the theme of Sun Worship is present throughout the game and city.
