Dark Souls II NG+ Lore Play Part 0: Preparing for NG+!

This playthrough is basically me messing about and dying a lot and getting angry at dumb stuff and talking about lore, now and then.

bardbarian42 asked: I just watched your NG+ video, and I wanted to know, what is your character's backstory?

For Dark Souls specifically? Or in general? Obviously I gotta tailor it a little for different games (it worked super well in Dragon’s Dogma) as I must be boring as I make the same character in about every RPG! Maybe I’ll write up a more detailed version this evening (about to go out!) but a TL;DR for Dark Souls;

Character was a soldier along with his far more talented brother. At some point the two found themselves on opposing sides and, instead of backing down or retreating, he fought his brother (and lost) The guilt of that moment had quite an effect on him, and later his brother perished in battle, at which point he became a wanderer. Unspecified time later, he became undead and found himself drawn to Drangleic. It was similar for Dark Souls 1. Quite a generic backstory, really.

I actually wrote a novel about the whole thing (sans Dark Souls references of course, as I wrote that when I was a wee 15 year old back in 2005!) But when I make characters for an RPG, I almost always choose one from that novel (which is itself, loosely based on RPG campaigns me and my friends did when we were teenagers)

"Sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry, you need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work." 

As you might imagine, on the Internet, this made some heads explode. 

Jezebel was among those first to react. “Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it, 

The thing I find funny about the above; all of these “gender theory” people insist they are about free speech and tolerance… And then leap at the chance to mock a lady who dares say she likes how human beings and a whole bunch of animals have behaved throughout history in order to propagate.

Urgh I dunno. I worded that poorly, but it’s 3am and I’m writing this in my phone. Hopefully it’s just a troll article and I’m too tired to realise it.

darksoulshaters:

Time for something a bit different. It was called to my attention that the official Dark Souls Facebook page was filled with idiots this morning, so I went to take a look. This is all capped directly from the comments to a post which explains the patch to Dark Souls 2 that was released this morning. As always, the Dark Souls community brings class and wisdom where ever they go.

I could have kept going (there are a LOT of comments) but by this point they were making me sad instead of making me laugh, so I closed the tab. 

This is part of the Dark Souls community I do not like at all. The ones who think they are big shots for playing Dark Souls and belittle others whilst stroking their e-peens.

To quote Maurice Chavez; You ain’t a big shot! You ain’t even a medium shot! You’re an asshole.

meganastyyyy asked: I'm listening to your lore videos for the hundredth time while I clean my room. Just thought I'd let you know how cool I think they are. :)

Thanks! Glad you like ‘em. Room cleaning though, blah. Not a fan of it. I need to become super rich so I can hire a cleaning maid.
