Remember the part with the little guys swarming you at the start? Thats when you were recruited.
But I did. You go to the Hunter's Dream because the Moon Presence sends the little guys to recruit you. That is before you die.
>just a foreigner who was at the wrong place at the wrong time
Actually a foreigner who went to the most medically advanced city in the known lore. You probably knew it was crawling with shit.
What the fuck were those swamp and sewer fags?
Kos is for her bros.
Kosm is if youre some worthless nobody.
>"Do they look like monsters to you?"
What did he mean by this?
>Cainhurst Summons found on the place where he wakes up
He was a faggot coming to Yharnam to find the Queen and become a heretic.
supposedly its the moon presence but that thing is so fucking forced into the game at the end. Why does it want you to kill other great ones? What is even its plan? BB starts off good but gets pretty shitty at the end.
No where really but except for it powering the hunters dream that allows you to go and kill them all. You get push along the hunt to mergos area. Once you finish the wet nurse your hunt is complete.
>The Great Ones having motives
You niggers need to read once in a while, thats not how the genre works. Part of Cosmic Horror is that you dont fully understand everything. Its like having a nightmare that ends up killing you or worse.
>It is good writing because it does not make sense
>They are just too deep for you to understand
I think the story of the game is meant to be kind of meta in that people are driven crazy trying to figure out what shit means and they're full of questions even long after playing. Gehrman even says "don't think about all this too much, just go out and kill some beasts" and when Maria tries to stop you from going to the fishing hamlet she might as well be saying "pls no more lore videos"
>"we are made men by the blood, undone by the blood, we are...Bloodborne The Old hunters Edition"
Come on From, you're better than that
>story about the fear of the unknown is bad writing.
It makes perfect sense, youre given bits and pieces but not everything is made known because it isnt really relevant. Zoom out in Space Engine and feel how small you are. Thats the structure in a nutshell.
I heard DLC glitched the game to not give the trophy. Idk if this was patched yet but there was some fix like buying a weapon from the shop will pop the trophy. Honestly you are a fag for not having it done like 6 months ago
Not him, but that's a huge element of eldritch horror. I guess it can be seen as kind of a narrative shortcut, but verbal exposition or ancient tablets or whatever would've stunk. Humans don't get to know what's up, and the game spent a long time establishing that.
They do have motives that are easily explainable. Most of the Great Ones want children and use humans as surrogates for their parental feelings. This fucks up humans so Moon Presence wants the other Great Ones dead to not fuck up humanity.
>all these retarded as fuck theories
Jesus. And I thought the /vg/ was stupid.
Anyway, what weapons do you faggots like the most?
I was prone to the Pizza Cutter when the DLC first released, but honestly, it's a pretty boring weapon. It's overpowered as fuck in PVE, but boring.
Lately I've been using Amy Arm and Based Cutter. Both are great fun.
RaiterpallachshfFafass however you spell it
Rapiers for life
Moon Presence doesn't have an active motive. He's perfectly happy with his surrogate.
The only reason you kill him is because he is the entire reason the hunt (the dream) and the beast plague (red moon) persist. Paleblood refers to the sky that looks like "a body drained of blood" during the red moon, which is also noted in the Laurence note. By killing MP, you stop the endless cycle of beasts and hunters. That's what it meant by "transcend the hunt", you don't just stop one night of the hunt, but stop the cycle. However, the only way you can feasibly kill him and not get possessed was to become a great one, which is why you needed the cords.

>so there's this random guy, right
>the church gives blood ministration
>and the moment they give him a weapn he just goes and kills fucking everything in like 10 hours
>Its a self proclaimed title, volunteer civilians easily become hunters.
I think you missed the point somewhere. Those volunteer civilians aren't real hunters, as they aren't connected to the Hunter's Dream. Hell, all the Hunters you meet in the base game are not connected to the Hunter's Dream anymore.
>yfw the entire game is a series of unfortunate events experienced by your character
Only someone that is a hunter can enter the hunters dream. So the hero possessed some hunter-like character traits before the ministration.
Dumb, unsubstantiated fan theories:
-Blood vials are menstrual blood
-"Paleblood" refers to anemic blood and anemics are immune to the beast plague for some reason
-Paleblood is kin blood because it's white colored
All the old hunters know the technique though. Compared to them, the player character is just a shitter who uses replicas of legendary weapons and mimics the fighting styles without drawing out the full potential.
But somehow this shitter was smart enough to transcend humanity and become a great one
HE JUST GULPED DOWN EVERYTHING HE COULD LAY HIS HANDS ON!
THAT'S ALL HE DID!
now he's a squib
>better than Pizza Cutter
The whole thing is a hallucination from a fever dream or some shit anyways who gives a fuck.
Speculation over Souls games' story is fucking stupid because it's all just mismatched, disjointed nonsense.
>for who knows how long, humans have tried to become great old ones
>they tried it with blood
>they tried it with lining the inside of their heads with eyes
>they tried to force everybody into a dream
>they tried turning people into aliens
>but they never tried eating umbilical cords
I meant the DLC released two weapons completely superior to their closest vanilla counterparts.
The pizza cutter is so much better than the hammer. The Rakuyo is just a better blades of mercy
GUYS WHAT IF
WHAT IF THE MC ISN'T AN ACTUAL HUNTER, BUT HE'S JUST CALLED "HUNTER"?
I MEAN THAT'S A REAL NAME.
PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE ARE CALLED "HUNTER", LIKE THIS GUY HERE, HE'S CALLED HUNTER HUNT-HENDRIX (and he's a genius).
It's made pretty obvious in the Hunters Nightmare that most hunters were far less about skill and mostly worked with sheer brutality. The likes of Gehrman and Maria are an exception, not the norm.
>but they never tried eating umbilical cords
Except that's exactly what they came up at Byrgenwerth and partly succeeded with Rom. It's just that they don't exactly grow on fucking trees.
The hunters were obviously flawed to begin with considering every single one you meet is either insane, a beast or suicidal. The only one that isn't is Eileen the Crow and that's because she's specifically a hunter dedicated to killing hunters.
>Nameless grave in the Hunter's Dream
>that is used to access the Hunter's Nightmare
>that the Doll frequently visits
>where you find the quickstep bone (which Maria seamlessly uses) in the Abandoned Workshop
No, it's not directly referenced, but come on.
>the fucking fextralife wiki
Dude no. That wiki is notorious for having blatant misinformation or just lack of information since Dark Souls 1. Look, I'll find the specific dialogue for you and you need to stop using that shitty wiki.
"You still have dreams? Tell the little doll I said hello."
>Character gets mistaken for someone or stumbles into some situation
>Is incredibly proficient at it
>So good in fact, that he scares enemies and allies alike
One of my favourite tropes in all of fiction.
>mfw that wiki straight up lies to you and says that Eileen goes insane and attacks you in the grand cathedral
>but you believe it
>Gehrman says we can fuck the Doll
>the Doll tells you she unconditionally loves you due to programming
>never get to tap that porcelain ass
What the fuck, FROM?
>you will never throw a huge frat house party in the Hunter's dream with every other hunter in the game
>you will never see Crowsteel and Alfred become booze-buddies and play beer-pong together
>you will never hear Eileen tell everyone embarrassing stories about Gehrman
>you will never offer Doll one little glass of punch that immediately gets her tipsy because of how delicate she is
>you will never give her a night she will always remember
>MP wants you to murder the other Great Ones
My favorite fucking meme.
You need to pay more attention. The MP doesn't give a FUCK about whether or not you kill the following Great Ones:
>orphan of kos
Which means that it doesn't care about you assassinating 2/3 of the Great One roster.
The MP wants you to kill the Wetnurse, AND ONLY the Wetnurse. It's being beckoned by Mergo and the Wetnurse is preventing the MP from claiming it as a surrogate. All other deaths, and the entire hunt, and deemed acceptable collateral damage in pursuit of this goal
>the first hunter is all about skill and technique
>one of his best students is all about skill and technique
>ludwig has a magical sword
I don't buy it. Just because the blood drunk Hunters in the nightmare used brutal weapons doesn't mean all the old hunters were just fuck mclargehuge beast crushers.
The Clock Tower is the doll's nightmare
Maria never actually existed (at least not as the person we see)
She's just the doll's idea of what being a hunter is like, and her own fears and assumptions about Gehrman's life personified.
Yes they have the bone and they use it so they can temporarily quickstep, but Maria can do it whenever she wants, she doesn't need a tool.
>Rom ate a cord to ascend
Lol. Here, let me tell you how that really happened
>ahh, kos, or some say kosm... do you hear our prayers? As you once did for the vacuous Rom, grant us eyes, grant us eyes! Plant eyes on our brains, to cleanse our beastly idiocy!
Rom prayed to Kos (or perhaps the Orphan), and was granted eyes as a gift. However, like all Great One gifts, the gift was poisoned, and Rom became a potato in the process
No idea. All I know is the Doll was made as a replica of Maria. Maybe Gehrman fucked the doll since he didn't have the balls to fuck what was basically his daughter. Gehrman's lines about how "even the doll" pretty much confirms either he or previous hunters have gotten freaky with the Doll.
>the Plain Doll was a Great One the whole time
>the Plain Doll orchestrated this
>she had you kill innumerable foes, bosses, other great ones
>uses their echoes to make you stronger
>makes an observation about ancient echoes flowing through you
>that note that says all Great Ones yearn for a surrogate
>in the true ending she got what she wanted
Fuck no. Maria's gear tells you that she objectively existed, she was one of Gehrmans students. The doll was made in her likeness and the MP did some eldritch bullshit that tied it to her when the MP animated the doll in the Dream
It could also be a hunter joke. When he says "Even the doll" she's just a doll but once you get some insight she comes to life and you can actually use her to level up. Only experienced hunters would know what was up with the doll so it could easily be something to mess with the new hunters.
>blood echoes she was given from
Actually no. All those blood echoes were yours to consume not to trade. You just don't have the ability to do it like the doll. Just like in the previous games except DaS which is the bonfire instead of a waifu.
Isn't the Doll also one of the very few NPC's in the entire game that has pure white blood (NOT clear)? Last I checked, only the Great Ones had pure white blood, while Kin and lesser beings had clear blood.
That's true, but they're all heavily implied to have been fucked up well before that.
>The Old Hunters
Went insane and blood-addled a long time ago and were banished to the Hunter's Nightmare.
>The Healing Church Hunters
Murdered and kidnapped people so the Church could perform its experiments in peace. Also almost always turn into hideous beasts like Ludwig, Gascoigne, Amelia and Laurence.
>The Yahar'Gul Hunters
Were just thugs that kidnapped people for the School of Mensis and worshipped the Great Ones.
>The Powder Kegs
Implied to have gone blood-addled through their hatred of the beasts except for Djura, who goes batshit and starts killing humans to protect beasts instead.
Dying out as evidenced by Eileen's advanced age, with the only other Crow betraying them to become a Vileblood.
Absolutely insane and genocidal, evidenced by Alfred killing the Queen and committing suicide.
The only ones that aren't fucked up are the Workshop and that's only because Gehrman is using you.
Whatever f@m just keep trying to convince people that Maria didn't actually exist when the game tells you in no uncertain terms that she did. You are perfectly free to make a fool of yourself all you want
The Vilebloods technically aren't hunters because the people of Cainhurst didn't turn into beasts. They turned into vampires instead which is why the Executioners want them dead.
You're right about Simon though, I forgot all about him.
>Gascan is a foreigner
>Gascan is a hunter
Clearly there can never be any overlap between the two. Your character must have just been an average townsfolk with no combat training in their life who suddenly goes on to kill gods several hours later.
What's more likely for someone roaming a nightmare
>they are fucking with forces beyond their comprehension and will cause all manner of fucked up shit
>they are just trying to put an end to the nightmare :^)
How nice of you to believe the "Annalise is evil" meme spouted by the Executioners.
Cainhurst still suffered from beasts, it's just that the blood they imbibed was from Queen Yharnam and was teeming with vermin. It's possible that instead of lychanthropy, the vermin caused people to transform into bloodlickers (and the heavy usage allowed the women of Cainhurst to become "ghosts"*).
It allowed Annalise to achieve immortality, and Maria to attain mastery of blood magic.
Basically, the church didn't want such powerful stuff falling in the wrong hands.
Why they didn't research it themselves instead of just forbidding it, I don't know.
*My personal head canon is that the "ghosts" have imbibed enough forbidden blood to survive death, but not enough to achieve immortality like Annalise.
They're about killing blood addled hunters whose veins are rich with echoes due to imbibing mass amounts of blood. There's little difference between the Vilebloods and the Hunters of Hunters.
Which may be why the Bloody Crow of Cainhurst subscribes to both.
Would depend on the nature of the undead in Bloodborne really. The only places we see them are Cainhurst, the Chalice Dungeons and Yahar'gul, all of which have direct connections to the Pthumerians. As far as I know it's never directly explained why they exist.
Everyone is better than the Healing Church, and the Executioners are just a bunch of self righteous hypocrites who blindly follow orders from literally the most evil group in the game.
Where did I say "blood-drunk"? I said blood addled, which is explicitly stated.
They went after those whose blood was rich with echoes, i.e. those who have imbibed lots of blood aka hunters.
No hunter stays pure, anon.
If you imbibe blood the way they do, you succumb sooner or later.
"This crude weapon relies on brute force and is regrettably inelegant, suggesting that the hunts of the earliest hunters made for horrific affairs, painted in sanguine black and reds."
>tfw no gf to do Cainhurst Noblewoman cosplay
>Your character must have just been an average townsfolk with no combat training in their life who suddenly goes on to kill gods several hours later.
You can pick a backstory where you're a dainty little prissyboy. You coming into Yharnam with the martial skill to fight giant monsters is just as valid a backstory as you coming in Yharnam having never fired a gun in your life. Your character could totally have been an average person with no combat training because it doesn't matter.
No amount of training justifies being able to kill giant dragons and shit in any Souls game (even the excuse that you come in after everything is fucked and in decline only goes so far) but you can still do it anyway because guess what videogame. Even the backgrounds with the most combat implied combat experience ranges from "you could have been a shitty bandit" to "you were the bandit god king". The backstory for your characters matters fuck all which is the entire point.
You go in as some guy and end up killing everything left alive in X location. Whether you were a knight or a wizard or a baker matters fuck all and are all equally valid. The closest you ever get to the player character background mattering is BB where you're actively seeking Paleblood and got a summons to vampire town before the start of the game and even then the end result is still "whatever your background was before you started the game doesn't matter".
>He couldn't see the full name
That's what you get for having low insight, I guess.
blood addled and blood drunk are synonyms, they describe the same condition of going out-of-control bloodthirsty after imbibing tons of blood
you can imbibe lots of echoes without going blood addled/drunk
Likewise, use of weapons that connect with refined human culture helps to keep one grounded and aware of who they are. Hence why so many members of the choir use the threaded cane.
that's why I think that the perfect in-between is the Axe.
It's just brutal and simple enough to be effective in the widest possible range of situations, while keeping the user grounded by reminding them of their solemn duty as an executioner, putting victims out of their misery
Well that's not true either. You're a guy that marched his way into a hidden castle, killed her captors, all for the sake of pledging to her. I'm sure she's absolutely wet whenever you enter the room.
>she's soaking wet whenever you walk in the room
love this fanfiction. if she wanted you, she'd have you. she is queen, after all, she can do what she wants, and you're growing eyes on the inside after eating those cords. literally no reason not to besides her finding you unpalatable
That is pure fanfiction, sir. Firstly, MP was already there the whole time, she was never being beckoned. You can't just claim that shit about Mergo either. How do you know that MP doesn't care about the others? She's actively giving you the power to fight these damn things.
Now I know why the Executioners are into rip and tear and why their hats are like toblerone packaging.
If you kill Annalise before giving Alfred the summons, can you even give it to him? If you can will the event play differently?
Or will he just not arrive unless you revive her?
>mergo wasn't beckoning the MP
>Madman toil surreptitiously in rituals to beckon the moon
>Nightmarish Rituals crave a newborn. find one, and silence it's harrowing cry
>Mensis ritual exposed. seek the Nightmare Newborn
>the Mensis ritual must be stopped, lest we all become beast
>when the Red Moon hangs low, the line between Man and Beast is blurred
the Mensis ritual is trying to beckon the Moon (which includes the MP), and they're using an infant (aka Mergo) to do it. The only way you wouldn't draw this conclusion is by a catastrophic lack of attention to the item descriptions and lore notes that you come across.
>how do you know that the MP doesn't care about the others
by the fact that it allows you to exit the dream while leaving all of them alive. if it wanted you to kill them, it wouldn't let you leave until you did
Not literally but he does plagiarize other people's lore theories and other discoveries without crediting them at all.
He didn't. Weren't you paying attention? He ground her into a bloody pulp, but she was still alive.
I don't know about videos, but he steals all his ideas from /vg/ and /v/
Why do you think he had no bloodborne lore stuff up near the launch while ENB was doing a bunch of lore? Everyone was too busy shitposting NEVER EVER to start working on lore theorys.
Your "contract" is complete and Gherman frees you from the dream when you kill Mergo. Seems like that's what you were there to do.
Also they never really outright explain why Great Ones' children are always stillborn, but considering your "mission" in the Hunters' dream (which the Moon Presence has dominion over) is to kill an infant great one while it's being conceived and other hunters have been in the dream like you have, you might theorize that this is something the Moon Presence does a lot.
She's an immortal being that has probably had a couple potential suitors in the past that always wound up dead. It's no surprise that she'd dismiss your advances because she probably thinks you'll end up dead just like all the others while she's left on her throne alone as Queen of a dead kingdom.
She's just a lonely woman that figures she's better off alone than seeing the person she loves eventually die. Classic immortal dilemma.
There used to be a video where a guy compared one of Vaati's lore videos to some other guy's that was made before Vaati's and Vaati clearly plagiarized a lot of it. The video has been made private since though.
it's not that they're always stillborn, it's that the Great One always loses it. so it's either stillborn, or it dies/ is killed. to an immortal Great One, they would always "lose their surrogate" regardless of whether or not they're stillborn, since some asshole hunter always comes along and murders them
>He ground her into a bloody pulp, but she was still alive.
But it's clearly more suffering to become strawberry jam than just to go to oblivion.
Alfred REALLY is hardcore
Or they could just lose track of it. I mean, I expect that since Great Ones can create dreams and dimensions that it's not unheard of that their child could move between them easily as they probably don't know how to control their abilities yet.
>Also they never really outright explain why Great Ones' children are always stillborn,
Not necessarily stillborn(Kos dies to give birth to Orphan, another way of losing a child), but I guess it's based on the concept that the more complex a creature, the fewer offspring it has. That would mean an incredibly advanced and higher dimensional being would be doomed to almost always fail at reproducing and must resort to other means.
Most great old ones were sympathetic to humans, hell some might have even been humans in the past, but humans can't comprehend them. The best they could do was make contact and hope one of the old ones planted a rune in their brains.
Dunno about videos but everything else is fair game for him.
Most things in this game are based on incomplete information. It's a giant puzzle with a bunch of missing pieces but part of the fun is coming up with things based on the information you have. There's no way of really knowing what's right other than From directly saying it so we're all valid.
Ahh game of the year, or some say game of all time.
I always thought that suspicious beggar was an experiment in trying to find the Beasts' Embrace rune. He got close enough to retain his "sanity" but not enough to eliminate his compulsion to eat human flesh
it's not just Vaati
there as a severe lack of lorevideos at BB's launch. It was basically JUST enb for weeks before the Paleblood Hunt came out, and my personal belief is that basically everyone was waiting for /v/ and /vg/ to stop shitposting and start having serious lorethreads, and Reddit and other sites were waiting for youtube.
Vaati had early access to the game as well. Still didn't do a video until some dude wrote a thesis on Bloodborne. Suspicious, huh?
Anon that is very true, but the least the faggot could do is say "I didn't come up with this idea", but he doesn't.
Ok I guess.
But ENB had access to the full game before most did. it's not weird that he then had ideas for content and theories already lined out before anyone.
Full access like what was given to the guys working on the guides? Or demos?
Think this just shows that Bloodborne isn't as open to interpretation as most claim.
A bunch of people reaching the same conclusions about a limited set of information isn't all that weird.
f@m it doesn't take that long to clear BB, it's less than 30 hours. Even if ENB had early access, we would still expect to see the lorevideos start coming out in waves around the first ~1-2 weeks post-release. but this didn't happen. because either the ENTIRE youtube community gave up because ENB's vids were popular (which is dumb to assume, since this never stopped anyone before) or they were all waiting for others to supply their theories for them, since they didn't understand it
Why do the Doll's hands and fingers make me exetremly aroused?
it's one thing to reach the same conclusions
it's quite another to quote the source word-for-word without crediting the original author
you unbelievable Vaati shill
>>>/youtube comments section/
He had access to BB for a long time, and didn't release this summary video until shortly after The Paleblood Hunt, and it started with the same exact quote. It's not even the only instance of stealing, it's just the most damning.
He could at least give credit and say he may have had inspiration from it but he refuses to even acknowledge it and continues to profit off of other people's ideas.
Its a respawning enemy so thats not an issue.
Go kill it again.
Spoilers for the next step. Seriously
After you find the ribbon, there isn't anything you can do until the last third of the game. After you kill a certain boss in a certain lake (You should know what I mean when it happens) go back to the girl's house
What the fuck really?
God damn man
Clearing and understanding are two different things. Especially in a game where the lore is strung out piece meal in item descriptions.
I'm not denying Vaati didn't have early access. I'm saying ENB had a longer time with the game which contributed to his speed and the detail he was able to produce.
It's a fucking common quote. Anyone who likes Lovecraft would recognize it and the similarities to a game built off Lovecraft lore. Next you're going to tell me everyones copying someone because they all caught the Berserk references in Dark Souls.
Look I agree that Vaati appears to have been influenced by the Paleblood Hunt and it's shitty that he didn't bother to cite it in some form. But I don't think that's enough proof to conclude he didn't have his own ideas prior to PH being written up or that /v/ is some sacred source of knowledge all youtubers go to for ideas.
Sure ENB may have had a longer time but Vaati literally had the game in his hands a month before the rest of us plebs and still somehow didn't make a single video until after Paleblood Hunt dropped. That's just a red flag, imo.
Again, it wouldn't be the first time he's taken an idea without crediting where it came from, it'd just be the most blatant.
I honestly don't give a fuck if Vaati coindidentally happened to have the same ideas as the Paleblood Hunt before he plagarized it, because he didn't display them in his videos (since he was too busy ripping off the Paleblood Hunt to bother showing them).
Regardless, I don't think that you're correct, because all of Vaati's home-brewed theories are complete and utter bullshit
>Cleric Beast is Ludwig
>Headless Bloodletting Beast is Laurence
>Eileen is the Wet Nurse
the dude is a fucking idiot whenever he's not plagiarizing others (like 99% of all plagiarists)
Like I've played through the game 3 times at this point and there's one fucking question I wish the devs would've made clear:
IN WHAT FUCKING CAPACITY WAS YOUR CHARACTER LOOKING FOR PALEBLOOD AND WHY?
In Demons' Souls and the Dark series your motivation is clear even if your characters' single-minded determination to act on what is basically rumor can seem sort of silly.
You're an outsider come for either fame or glory or just plain being a good guy in order to stop the encroaching fog in Demons' Souls.
You're the chosen undead and have a pretty specific destiny in DS1/2.
In Bloodborne, you're a foreigner come under cover of night to uh...um... find paleblood? Or you have some sort of disease called paleblood you're seeking treatment for? Or both? Maybe? I dunno. Just roll with it.
People tend to say you're seeking Paleblood, but that's mostly interpreting the notes you find in Yharnam as being addressed to YOU when to me they come off as just being left-behind scribblings.
The only notes in the game that seem to be addressed to you specifically is the Cainhurst Summons (which is curious) and the note in the Hunter's Dream telling you to escape the nightmare.
Like, you never FIND the paleblood unless I'm misinterpreting something (I mean the whole womb-being-blessed-with-child thing with Arianna/Isoefka's imposter/etc doesn't seem like something that happens every hunt), so my conclusion has always been that you happen to have an affliction known as paleblood and you're somehow the trigger for this specific night of the hunt being so particularly nasty (The church beggar noting that even people hiding inside are "going bad" this time) after you get your blood ministered and become a hunter.
no it fucking wasn't
the description of the Sword stated that it was a standard-issue weapon used by all of Ludwig's soldiers, and the Sword Hunter Badge said that clerics (as a generic term) all became hideous beasts
Its implied you have a disease that you came to Yharnam to cure.
And then once there you learn that Paleblood is probably your best bet, though you don't learn til later that its the blood of ayy lmaos.
In Dark Souls 1, you are not the chosen undead. In fact you don't really have a reason to do anything in Lordran, but one can assume you're just honoring Oscar's last request.
>I will never get to hold them and look into that cute face
You find it.
"Behold! A Paleblood sky!"
Paleblood is the color of the sky following the Mensis ritual, only visible after you kill Rom, the last true power of Byrgenwerth, and the only remaining potent opposition to the ritual.
While the consequences are near apocalyptic, you can now see the true enemy.
It could be a mistake but you can view that note before you ever fight Rom. If you get kidnapped after killing Vicar Amelia you can explore most of Yhar'gul and you can see that note during the regular moonlit night.
>being this new
>being this reddit
>being this much of a faggot
>sucking this much cock
>replying to 5 posts in one post
I want you to stop living
A good point, and I've been puzzled by this.
But then again, when you think about it, the Amgdala were there all along, you just couldn't see them, unless you have high insight.
The Paleblood sky was always there. This has even more significance if you take into account >>324270825 's comment. Was the "real" sky an illusion all along? What even constitutes an illusion when worlds are built on dreams?
Well that's the thing, in Bloodborne, dreams aren't just dreams. They are a separate plane of existence from "reality" but still equally valid. It's not that the real sky is an illusion, you're just seeing the real sky and the nightmare sky overlap.
Is there a comfier girl in existence?
I want to be a squid so I can curl up into a ball underneath her shawl and sleep between her little porcelain breasts.
>No qt Aza boss fight with toot toots flying around the place
>not understanding that the prophecy was bullshit
Come on family.
>Pat credits Vaati for fucking everything during the DS2 playthrough
>keeps doing it in Bloodborne
God of Cinemas. Puts tentacles in your popcorn. Places touched by his magnificence have low lighting and sticky floors. Haven't you found the Pick 'n mix in the chalice dungeons yet?
You travel to Yharnam after hearing about their healing blood and want to cure your disease.
You awake to find the world in tatters and find a note telling you to "seek Paleblood to transcend the hunt". Once you die and enter the Hunter's Dream, Gehrman tells you to hunt some beasts to achieve your goal.
It's fairly straight forward.
The whole prophecy is bullshit, it's made up by gwyndolin and frampt to hope that an undead can succeed gwyn and link the flames - by ringing the two bells and collecting the 4 great souls you prove you're powerful enough to provide some fuel for the first flame.
Any undead can be the one to link the flames, any undead cam be the "chosen undead"
Isn't that how it is in all Souls games anyway? You play as a rank and file shitter who somehow manages to survive where all the other heroes (and villains) failed and come out as top fucking dog. I like it to be honest.
At least in Demon's Souls theres a good explanation for your respawning, but in DaS1 & 2 it didn't make much sense. I guess you're undead, sure, but so is everyone else. So why don't they respawn?
>sarcasm in text form
Truly a master redditier in our presence, you must be swimming in reddit gold.
The vilebloods were persecuted by hunters from from the church. It makes sense that that they would thus characterize hunters as evil demons by giving them monikers like "blood fiends," since they were being hunted by them
This is what I love about Bloodborne, your character wasn't even trained to be a hunter. In the Souls games it's kinda implied you're some kind of Chosen One, especially in DaS where you're the reincarnation/descendant of the Furtive Pygmy.
But in Bloodborne you're just a guy who shows up wanting to be cured of some random disease and you end up slaying all of the local beasts and Eldritch monstrosities.
this is completely backwards.
in DeS there is no explanation for your respawning. if you die, you get trapped by the nexus, and you linger on in soul form. if you die in soul form, canonically you die permanently. the fact that the player can spawn in as many times as they like is 100% a gameplay convenience.
in DaS1 and DaS2 respawning is an inherent feature of being undead. you only die "permanently" when you hollow. NPCs die permanently because when you kill them, that's the last straw for them, they hollow, and become a shuffling zombie somewhere
After both salt and butter were found to be ineffective against the beastly scourge, hunters took to lacing popcorn with their own blood.
The first popcorn stands were discovered by hunters from the healing church. Scholars from the Choir still attribute an untapped power to it. What else could explain the high price it demanded from Pthumerian movie fans?
I fucked up her quest on my first playthrough and never talked to her in Cathedral Ward. I think after Rom she appeard at Grand Cathedral and was hostile so had to kill her. Don't know about the doll part though.
God damn I love dark souls and dark souls 2, I really want to play BB but I have to build a new computer because my current one is shite and old, fuck is it worth getting a PS4 for it? How does online on the PS4 work, do I need to pay for it just to have the same online interactions you have in Dark Souls?
Micolash is pretty much the most interesting character throughout the entire Souls series. Don't even know why since you barely see him but he's interesting as fuck.
> if you die in soul form, canonically you die permanently
Are you sure? I don't remember that being the case. The way I remember it is that you get trapped in the Nexus, as you said, and you're basically trapped there forever until you man the fuck up and go and fight the horrors until they're dead. Or not, and become like that blue phantom who sits in the Nexus and mopes all the time.
Let's settle this
Are you a manlet or is doll a big girl for you?
More like crazy fucktard who has a bunch of people ritual killed and turned into an abomination of a fake great old one while he got to live it up in the nightmare.
>boring as fuck fight
>barely any info on him
>the nightmare up to him is just a weird combination of piss easy enemies and infinite range spiders/breaking boulders
I really hate micolash
I think you're confusing item descriptions as being written from the viewpoint of the persons it describes, and I'm not sure why you're reaching this conclusion.
The blood dreg description states
>often appear[ing] in the blood of echo fiends, that is to say, the blood of hunters
Vilebloods only hunt hunters, and no hunter is innocent.
Every hunter imbibes heavily, and becomes a blood fiend, eventually succumbing to scourge of the beast.
I imagine souls in the series are like the tang in eva, if you wanna come back to your corporal form then thats fine, if don't then who gives a fuck
I assume the ones who die in hollow form have already said fuck it to living in the real world and just want to go away
This is bait! Be careful not to fall for it, little squids!
When I found the doll at the abandoned workshop, there were tons of dead fags around. Does she do anything, were they committing suicide, or is that an invasion spot?
They all seemed to attack the doll, and died later. I tried the same but nothing happened.
Patches exists in all dimensions.
Later on in the game if you die to Gehrman you can summon people at the workshop to help you fight him. People usually use that place to pvp since if you summon people that are an opposing faction they'll be summoned as an invader.

Rom prayed to Kos, took in an umbilical cord and was made a great one. To prevent others from becoming great ones through mas syyy impregnation Rom became the dream catcher to keep the nightmare cradles away.
yes but there's nothing that sounds like this:
>Rom prayed to Kos
>also took an umbilical cord
these things are redundant. if they had cords, there would be no need for prayer, you just eat them to ascend. if their prayers succeeded in granting eyes, no cord is necessary
>to prevent others from ascending it blocked the nightmare
it's not thinking or trying to do anything, Rom is vacuous. it's blocking the Nightmare is just some reflex that requires no thought
