Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

PostSubject: Kahn's terrible idea (Aka help me git better at Dark Souls)   Thu Aug 25, 2016 10:33 pm

So ladies and gentlemen, as you all likely know or have heard. I like the Dark Souls series, I have all of the games except Bloodborne and Demon Souls. The game has had several challenges made for it, and while those interest me I got the feeling that I would offer you all an opportunity to mess with me. I was thinking about replaying through the dark souls series with challenges that you all would impose on me. You get to impose new or the same challenges for each installment of the game.

So first let us start off with what I have to do.

1. I have to explore all the levels, and fight every single boss in the game even if they are optional. (There is a caveat to this)
2. I have to abide by the rules you all impose upon me during the challenge. (Caveat here too)

Now let's talk about the caveats:

1. I am allowed to give mercy to one boss, that means I don't have to fight it if it is optional.
2. I am allowed at least 3 vetos, in case you guys come up with rules that are ridiculous and if they were to go together they would be...impossible. An example is to play without armor and use your bare fists (which deals 1-5 damage in this game...max. Against bosses with 1,000 health and resistances. No, I'm not going to punch a boss 1,000 times.)

Now as for what's on the table:

1. Limiting Gameplay mechanics (No armor, no upgrading healing items, etc.)
2. Punishment games: If you die do x amount of push-ups. In other words you're telling me to git gud or git buff. (Keep it to stuff in my room, nothing way out there, otherwise it will get automatically vetoed)
3. Use any weapon you pickup and you have to pick up every shiny you see (Note that this may be difficult if I simply cannot use the weapon. I might say that I use any weapon I pick up if I get the stats for it, and if I don't have said stats then I have to level till I have them). Creative rules like this are fine.

Now what's the point in your participation? Simple, because you all have decided to challenge me and inflict great harm and mental anguish upon me, I am going to be posting logs of my success with the run as I go.

I will post my thoughts on the challenges, how I despise some of you, and how many deaths I had in an area. This will be your reward for being a bunch of mean trolls.

So when you post, and if you want to participate, just suggest a rule and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Also if I veto your rule then you may suggest another one.

Right now let's take rules and suggestions for Dark Souls 1!

Now that I got that obligatory joke out of the way, here's a real rule for you.
-You must select the Deprived as your starting class.

Challenge 1 : You cannot Repair Equipment, and should your shit break, you cannot change your gear until you either die or reach the boss fog. The only Exception is weapons. But the weapon you equip HAS to be worse than the broken one. Maybe a Limit on how much Armor you can carry with you at a time would be nice as well... A test of Resourcefulness. And you have to slow roll the entire game.

Challenge 2: (For Dark Souls 2) Limited use of Human Effigies to restore Humanity. You cannot buy them, period. Same Rules apply here as the First Challenge. You can only use 1 Effigy between each Boss Fog. Alternatively, we could take this a step further and do an Undead Run. Your choice. Lol

Go for the git buff route:

Rule 1: You can't put any points at int or dex

Rule 2: Every time you die you have to make 10 sits up and 10 push ups

Rule 3: No chest piece armors, true men fight shirtless

PS: Don't follow Blaez's rules they're trash

I might have to adjust some rules, because....there is some conflict. I'll give this another day to see what happens.

For example no chest plate, and slow roll only is possible but in some cases it is...difficult. Also I like the multiple suggestions, just keep in mind that you have to choose one rule. For example the weapon until it breaks and then equip a worse weapon, and you have to slow roll is two types of rules.

Also the Dark Souls 2 one is cruel since there is no cap for life lost as a hollow.

Play log 1:

Bosses defeated:

Asylum Demon
Taraus Demon
Belfry Gargoyles

Deaths : 4

Rules in place for Dark Souls 1 run:

Rule 1: Every time you die you have to make 10 sits up and 10 push ups

Challenge 2 : You cannot Repair Equipment, and should your shit break, you cannot change your gear until you either die or reach the boss fog. The only Exception is weapons. But the weapon you equip HAS to be worse than the broken one. Maybe a Limit on how much Armor you can carry with you at a time would be nice as well... A test of Resourcefulness.

A few things about this one, by change my gear do you include my weapon as well? Furthermore, by worse than I assume you mean damage and I have to meet the base requirements. So I have to be able to actually use it, because weapons you cannot use are dead weight, and deal little damage. Furthermore, it is very tempting to drop bad weapons, this way I can only equip up. I assume that this is not in the spirit of the rule. Also what if the only weapon I can equip is better than the weapon that just broke, do I have to run around till I find a terrible weapon, or just go ahead and equip the good one.

Finally, I started as the deprived!

So here is a brief description of deaths.

1. Little to my knowledge because no one uses the club, the power attack is a jump attack, and this is the only weapon line that has that. So when I was trying to hit an innocent hollow, I jumped over it and fell to my death. Falling to my death is quite common.

2. Black Knight: These guys are tough, they are not meant to be taken on at a low level, but you can if you work around them enough. Unfortunately, my shield is not that great, it is better now, and the club is just atrocious. This means every single time I went to backstab it, instead I smacked it with the club. So then it smacked me and killed me.

3. Havel: Lots of HP for a low level to fight along with physical defense, if he hits you then you die in one shot. So, this is something for more experienced players to do, and I can do it. I haven't played Dark Souls 1 in forever, so I need to get an idea on the pace and timing. I need to refamilarize myself with everything once more.

4. Enchanted Hollow: This hollow was buffed by a creature known as a Channeler, it does a little dance and buffs all nearby enemies, and those enemies turn into two-three shotting monsters, even if they use broken swords. I missed a swing with the club, and it smacked me a few times and killed me.

5th unofficial death: I got invaded, which surprised me honestly, and I looked at the invader. This was the person who invades with a twinked character, meaning that they have top tier gear but their level is like 12. Their stats are likely adjusted too. So, he approaches me and uses a spell called great combustion, which is a fast casting heavy damage spell. AKA it one shot me, and this is a spell you don't get till blightown, or another 10-15 levels, and it is taught by a special teacher who requires you to make some investment into another item before even appearing. Finally, he had the crown of dusk, which you don't get till after you beat the Hydra, and that takes you some time to do so. You cannot do this at a low level, or my level. Sooo, everything about that invader was suspicious.

My thoughts: The not changing equipment or gear until I die is a bit rough, especially if I cannot change a weapon until it breaks. The biggest problem I have with this is the fact that the club is just terrible. It takes the stamina of a great weapon, and if you miss then your character has to stumble forward as though he tripped over a rock. You cannot do a single thing during this time, and Azami made me start with one of the worst weapons in the game. Which is likely why I named the character DANKNEWARCANA. Because we are so deprieved it is only fitting. But this club has some benefits, like magically hitting two people at once, when it clearly only hit one, or magically killing a person that is two or three feet away......

This weapon is so strange, and I want me greatsword back. I want something that isn't terrible. Someone help me...please, anything but this weapon.

Can you hold off on sobbing uncontrollably for a bit? I need to properly position my glass underneath you so that when you start crying your delicious tears will fill it up for my drinking pleasure.

Tears? What tears? I'm used to the club now! I just killed havel, and two black knights with it. I'm heading toward the moonlight butterfly, and eliminating another black knight. Furthermore, I will likely end up fighting the capra demon too!
