    Well mostly I was trying to disprove the notion of Dark Souls being entwined with the real world in any way, it's sort of a Pet Peeve of mine.

    Oh, of course it isn't. My joke in the thread in the Archives "here on the forums" was just that, a joke. However, it is perhaps some kind of nod towards the author/book, or perhaps just some little thing one of the artists thought added to the atmosphere.

    Well, maybe bring it up in the Link thread in the Lore section? It deals with external sources, come to think of it, I'm behind in my research for it.

    This has to be it.

    I agree with others that it looks more like "Playfail"...
    But even if some letters are slightly off or are hard to read because of weird degradation, you don't make up a random book title and fake author and have it come out so similar to a real book by an author with one or zero letters that are different in their name.

    What I wonder is if this extremely obscure book was chosen on purpose, or if it somehow wound up as a stock texture in some database and was picked at random because of how it looks. The latter seems more likely, but I'd love to know more about this book.

    Hmm, maybe we should get more players on the forum interested. Trick them into thinking there is a hidden nude character in game?

    I think I referenced that earlier. We would need a keyword and more to go with it. Personally I think a good first step would be to go character buy character in the mystery word and try to come to a consensus on what each one could be.

    Tell them you'll have to cancel so you can do science.
    I'm not sure if Dark Souls lore work strictly counts as science, but they'll understand.

    Sorry, Skare, didn't see it if you did. :silent:

    No need to apologize. I usually only point stuff out like that so everyone can look there first before swarming the internet

    As a graduate of a state university in my proud home of New York I gotta say kingkush might be onto something. Drinking for four years is directly correlated with learning, research and education. I even got a degree in two majors from it! Come on everyone....let's knock back a few and figure out this damn book already.

    I did have some ice wine earlier. Probably not representative of the drinking I did in college
