    The Bed of Chaos

    Post by ublug on Fri Aug 10, 2012 6:34 pm

    On my last playthrough I noticed that in the centre of the chaos orbs, that binds the twisted remains of the Witch of Izalith, is what looks like glowing rings of yellow light. This yellow light is very similar in color and appearance to the areas blocked by the Great Lords power. They also release a shockwave once the binding is released, perhaps correlated to the release of energy when placing the Lordvessel.

    We know that the black knights once were Gwyn's own army of knights, who were charred black from fighting Chaos Demons, and gained powers that still inherits their equipment. One can only assume that they eventually headed for Lost Izalith, to target the source of the chaos demons; to stop the Bed of Chaos. But the only possible remains of his knights in Lost Izalith are the two Divine Blessings, the holy water of Gwynevere, which are found on some corpses in the lava behind the bonfire tower.

    So the question is: Did Gwyn, or one/some of his trusted knights, pacify the Witch of Izalith by binding her chaotic state? Why just pacify her, instead of killing her to end the chaos for good? An intent to abuse her power for their own purposes perhaps?

    Have there been any specualtion about this, or have Acidic made a post about it? I skimmed through some of his pages, but didn't find any in-depth answers.

    Everytime I see those rods they remind me of the moonlight butterfly's horn. I agree with you they must have pacified her in some way.

    Could it be loneliness that made her dormant? She's stuck there with most of her children gone and almost all turned into monstrosities. She's in the same boat and who knows precisely how long she's been trapped. Could be she was resigned to wait out eternity until we stroll in.

    However it is interesting she either can't or won't fully show herself until those side orbs are broke. Maybe two daughters sacrificed themselves to reign in mommy

    I think the extra limbs bursting forth gives Ublug's theory good evidence. Perhaps the Knights tied her down but were unable to finish the job before the demons overwhelmed them?

    And Skare has a point. Were the orbs made by the knights or the daughters? Do they protect her as we thught, or trap her?

    Based on the progression of the fight the orbs definitely limit her, or restrain her.

    I thought it was basically confirmed that the two side orbs were two of the daughters of chaos?

    On the subject of Black Knights though, I've always thought it was fairly strange where we find them. There's a couple in Undead Burg, but then there's one in Darkroot, one in the Catacombs, and one in the Tomb of Giants.

    May i just say, the reason behind the black knights is because there armour was charred black when the entered the kiln of the first flame along with their lord, Lord Gwyn. One thing i would need to draw attention to is how the area just before the fire sage is sealed by the seal of lord gwyn. Meaning it could not have been black knights that went to do this. If you look at it, all the places that are sealed by Lord Gwyn's seal, there is no black knights, meaning the seal was created at the time when entered the kiln. The divine blessing is something sold by Rhea of Thorolund, princess and follower of the Way of White. I think that some really powerful priests from the way of white sealed away parts of the Bed of Chaos to keep it from spreading, probably some time just before Gwyn went to link the flames.
