I think if this is going to be a proper /from/ board then we better talk about the black sheep of the family. the bad -level design -forgettable bosses -boss gang fest -janky hitboxes -rolling felt off but that might just be me the good -level setting -interesting and fun armour choices (ds3 has the most bland washed-out colours for its armours its depressing when ds2 had such interesting ones) -best gestures -power stancing 2 big weapons was fun as fuck (ds3's twin blades weapons are a joke) For me ds2 is disappointing not because it was a bad game but because it actually had some really good ideas that were just abandoned by ds3.

>>177 Ironclads are only found in two areas - FOTFG and Iron Keep. It's no smoking gun but it's a connection that exists and there's no real explanation for it in the game

Pus of Man & The Pilgrims Nameless 02/22/2021 (Mon) 08:37:40 No. 65 [Reply]
What are your theories on the pus of man and the pilgrim butterflies in DkS3? Both seem to be some sort of transformation that is happening to the hollows but with drastically different results. You can see it right at the start of the game. Some of the hollows have become pus of man and some are in the process of turning into butterflies (the hollow trees). There's also the stones that the pilgrims and clerics wear on their backs to contain their humanity and keep from becoming a pus of man. Thoughts?

Sword of Moonlight / King's Field Maker Nameless 02/27/2021 (Sat) 06:43:49 No. 118 [Reply]
I thought that this was interesting and maybe worth sharing in this board. >What the Hell is this? <eleased in 2000 (From Software’s site states March 16th specifically), Sword of Moonlight is a collection of various Windows utilities that allow the user to create a “King’s Field game”. Broadly speaking it is capable of creating something comparable to the first King’s Field but with some major improvements, the games work quite easily on modern systems, and even seem to work with 16:9 and 16:10 screen resolutions with no tweaks and only a few minor issues. >I'm interested, where do I get it? <http://www.swordofmoonlight.com/Installation.htm (You need to register in their forums, there are several patches and its fully translated) Examples https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kJ1RFSnwPA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW-DJWwvTAE

>>85 >>86 Since there's quite a bit of overlap between FromSoftware fans and Nioh fans, and that the series is popular enough that I think it would take up a lot of discussion in the dedicated Soulslike thread, this can stay up. Although this makes sense in my head right now, I'm already asking myself what the criteria is for "popular enough." What do you think? I could always merge the two at a later date. I don't want to see the board spammed with soulslike threads, any more than you do. But I think non-from, or even non-vidya related threads could be allowed, as long as there is enough of that FromSoftware "overlap." For example a Berserk thread or a Weapons and Armor thread could be fun to have.

>>88 IMO, the soulslike thread should just be containment for the 2D indies. Not because they all suck but because there's so many of them (600+ tagged on Steam). Fully realized, expansive, 3D games like Nioh, The Surge, Mortal Shell etc. should be treated like any of the FROM Soulsborne games.

>>57 I haven't but I did max out one of my stats in Bloodborne once. >>57 >A part of me wants to try it just so I could use every weapon and spell together but it also seems like it would be super autistic to grind up that far. Don't most of the stats end up soft capping at some point?
>>101 yeah I think most soft cap at 40, with things like faith and int having a harder soft cap at 60. But that's still a ridiculously high level character so at that point you might as well go the whole hog. in for a penny.

Thread for anything GRRM, GOT/ASOIAF. Doesn't have to be Elden Ring related. >Lore/Mythology >Characters/Creatures/Races >Themes/Storytelling >Systems of Magic, Politics, etc. I can't really add much to this thread since I've never read any of his books or seen GOT past s1, but I wanted to have one for those who have and wanted to discuss. All I have are some links and articles: Fevre Dream >Miyazaki's favorite Martin novel is Fevre Dream. Set during the antebellum period of the American South, the novel is about steamboat captains on the Mississippi River and vampires. In fact, Mizayaki loves Fevre Dream so much, he cites it as the main reason he wanted to work with Martin on Elden Ring. https://screenrant.com/elden-ring-miyazaki-favorite-george-rr-martin-book/ I've also read somewhere that Miyazaki gave a copy to all his employees to draw inspiration from.

>>102 It does make me wonder. pic related is from the book review, it makes me think there'll be some sort of sympathy toward the vampire race in ER, if there is one. It's interesting that the book represents vampires, or "nosfuratu" as both vampires and werewolves. What do you think the nosfuratu would look like in elden ring?
>>104 That's actually a really interesting concept for vampires. It sort of reminds me of the Wolfen's take on werewolves.

Introduction to Irish Myth Celtic mythology and tradition is contained in four cycles: the Mythological Cycle, the Ulster Cycle (Red Branch) and the Fenian/Fianna Cycle, and the Kings, or Historical Cycle.

Taking place during and after the fall of the "Tower of Babel" and the "Great Flood" that appears in many culture's myths.

The First Invasion Cesair and the very first settlers -Daughter of Bith, and granddaughter of Noah. -Was denied entry to the Ark. -Settled on Ireland with 50 other woman, and three men. -Married Fintan mac Bochra. -The two other men die.

They may have even worshiped them as thier Gods. -The Firbolgs’ last king was Eochaid Mac Eirc, whose wife, Tailtiu (daugher of King of Spain), was the foster mother of Lugh Lamfata, the Danann hero and solar god. North: Tuatha De Danann -Larbonel led his people to the northern isles and was a prophet. -The northern isles have four magical, otherworldly cities (Falias, Gorias, Finias and Murias), each one ruled by a druid. -Traditions hint that these cities might not be on Earth, or that they would be at a different level of dimensional vibration than human beings are on Earth today.
