The Beckoning Bell description supports this text: "Great old bell discovered in the old underground labyrinth. Its ring resonates across worlds, and the first hunter used it as a special signal to call hunters from other worlds to cross the gap and co-operate."

Very good text!

"During his days at Byrgenwerth, Gehrman entered the tombs of the gods. It was in the underground labyrinth that he discovered a great old bell. "

This part needs to be sourced or changed though.

Paarl being Archibald's friend should really be categorized as theory.

While that is possible, I would like to present a counterpoint.
I believe the carriers, the big guys with cages on their backs, are separate from the inhabitants, who were actually imprisoned. The term "enlighten" may be used sarcastically, like they didn't have a choice but to go along with it and be sacrificed.

by Souls LoreSouls Lore, 11 Aug 2016 01:34

So judging from the fact that evangelists were sent to Undead Settlement to " enlighten inhabitants of the Undead Settlement and sent carriers on the path of sacrifice", wouldn't it mean that the sacrifices might've been volunteer?

I still don't see it. The "fingers" are too metallic and sharp ingame for me.

Don't panic though ^^

The image says DS3 but it's obviously DS1.

To be honest, I don't think that the Mimics' teeth are finger at all.

While they may seem like teeth here:https://trazobit.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/gus-mukin03.jpg

They don't look like teeth at all here: http://assets.vg247.com/current//2016/04/dark_souls_3_mimic.jpg

Maybe other see fingers… but I really don't see them.

It is called "Holy Remains", in the unused content.

Sinister vessel made from the skull of a noble king. Placed on the altar within the catacombs, but its origins are unclear. An ominous air emits from the chalice, gripping the hearts of those who peer at it as if determined to drag them to the world of the dead.

I suppose it was first planned for it to be taken by the player and brought upon the altar in order to unlock and fight Wolnir, or something along the lines. Regardless, that's the only official thing said about the goblet. Looks like even if it was used, it would have raised the same questions.

interesting theory. I would like to add that it is a possible as his form is sludge? as can be seen in the cinematic trailer.

Re: Aldrich and anor londo by LothricLothric, 28 Jul 2016 22:55

any connotation from the use of the goblet to start the boss battle?

Goblet idea? by LothricLothric, 28 Jul 2016 22:50

I think aldrich came into anor londo passing through the gwyn's grave hall, because behind the grave we can see a broken window

i know, my english it's not perfect

Aldrich and anor londo by AthereiusAthereius, 26 Jul 2016 20:55

I don't understand how Sirris being the Shrine Handmaiden's granddaughter has anything to do with this.

"Another Nana disappeared. So the grandson carries a cage. He ever has his cage. And Nana's never coming back. So come into the cage and become Nana's shade…."

1. The Shrine Handmaiden didn't disappear. She's been sitting around at Firelink Shrine for eons (At the very least since the Untended Graves timeline).
2. Who's the grandson with the cage? You only mentioned a grandmother, granddaughter, and grandfather.

Another Dark Souls 3 Theory (SPOILERS)

Alot of people pose the theory that Ludleth is the Soulkeeper. However, what if WE, the Ashen One/ Unkindled, are the Soulkeeper resurrected?!

First off, we know that when someone links the flame, they become "kindling" to the flame and become a Lord of Cinder. That being said, as the Unkindled, to me that sounds like we, at some point in the past, REFUSED to link the flame and therefore didnt becoming "kindling" to the fire (hence, Unkindled). That would explain the opening scene's line about "accursed Undead unfit to be cinder" (we didnt become a Lord of Cinder).

Ludleth complicates things a bit. Through his dialogue, and even more importantly, the ring he drops when killed, brings me to this theory. WE are the Soulfeeder reincarnated. Ludleth hints at two important things in his dialogue: 1) that he WILLED himself to be a LoC and 2) when talking about the Untended Graves, that Dark Age was brought on by betrayal.

What if the Soulfeeder was Corland's Chosen undead destined to become a LoC, betrayed his duty, and became the first to let the fire fade (I say "first" because I dont know if there has been a Dark Age since Gwyn linked the fire. If the Soulfeeder was not the first to let it die, it doesnt really affect my theory). Ludleth, who was a master soul transposer also from Courland, tracked him down, killed him, and turned his soul into the ring. Ludleth then threw himself, with the ring, into the fire (thus, "willing" himself to be an LoC).
Note: Alot of people claim that if you kill Ludleth, it doesnt say "Lord of Cinder" destroyed. I think that's a game mechanic thing because if you reload at a bonfire he shows up again.

Now, what if the "punishment" for refusing to link the fire caused the Soulfeeder to become an Unkindled "bounty hunter" cursed with tracking down other LoCs who are on the same path. Sort of like a second chance at redemption for us. As the opening states, "Ash seeketh Embers." We were killed and became ash and long for redemption by linking the fire and becoming embers. As we know at the beginning of DS3, the "link to fire is threatened" because Lothric refuses to link the flame. So the firekeeper rings the bell to wake the old LoCs to save the fire (second line of defense) but they refuse too. Finally, we, the Unkindled, rise as the last line of defense to hunt down and MAKE (via violent means) the LoCs return by taking their souls and linking it ourselves or, once again, deciding not to.

To sum up: In another time, we were the Soulfeeder and were tasked with becoming an LoC. We betrayed that duty, were killed by Ludleth, and he became an LoC instead. As punsihment for our betrayal and as an opportunity for redemption ("Ash seeketh embers") we became the Unkindled, a being tasked with hunting down anyone/thing who chooses to follow us on our path and not link the flame.

Other important things to note (that I havent found a way to smoothly add in above):

- Ludleth's throne clearly wasn't made for him, like all the other thrones were custom to their LoCs. It definitely seems more fitted for us.

- After we refused to link the fire, the firekeeper had a vision of what would happen if the fire died. She showed this vision to Ludleth which, fearing this prophecy, caused him to kill us (the Soulfeeer) and throw himself into the fire to link it.

- The biggest "wrench in the works" is finding out how the two variations of Gundyr fit into my theory…

Anyway, let me know what you all think!

Hmm. I can confirm that killing Aldrich is not a trigger (any boss works, like any other quest), and neither is reaching Gwynevere's former chamber.

Removed that phrase.

In order to trigger this, you must go to Gwynevere's old chamber in Anor Londo above the Aldrich boss room.

Pretty sure this is false. The trigger is offering a Pale Tongue to Rosaria, then talking to Leonhard and killing Aldrich. On my most recent playthrough I did the Leonhard questline after finishing all bosses and I'm 100% sure I got the Black Eye Orb before even riding up the elevator to Gwynevere's room.

The only evidence seems to be in the special Blossom's description. A counter-argument could easily be made because the Handmaid is most likely very very old. So, the term Grandmother could just be one of respect or station in the covenant and not a familial one in this case.

by Souls LoreSouls Lore, 27 May 2016 14:10

I sort of had the same theory about the handmaid being Sirris's grandmother, but there's really not a whole lot of evidence that proves it. Plus, if it was a gift, why would she sell it?

by praeliapraelia, 27 May 2016 03:51

You don't think the fact that both items blatantly state that she is a member of the old royal family is evidence enough, but you think she was Sulyvahn's prostitute? Where exactly in the game is there evidence of that?
