thoundth good, i wonder what thort of emberth we'll be theeking
It is a call-back to intro of the original Dark Souls - see from 3:20 onwards of this video:
(I didn't have captions on so I only infered the "th" instead of a "s" as a suffix for "seek" in the sentence, I thought it to be a delibate turn into faux old English - I might as well have used quotation marks)
Looking at this again, I noticed a peculiar thing:
There is no mention of the Darksign in the intro, while the other two games refered to it in the intro, though not by name in the case of Dark Souls 2 (Dark Souls, see above; Dark Souls 2, see below)
Now the Unkindled are described as "accursed" which means the Curse is still around but the Darksign is not? - Interesting, interstinig indeed...
Those Undead with the Darksign are special, as they are the ones who have the opportunity to bring about the Age of Dark and end the cycle which fuels the Age of Fire... (not all Undead have the Darksign but all who have the Darksign are Undead)
From From Software, we have heard that Dark Souls 3 is supposed to be the final installment and bring an end to the cycle (the endings of the first two games, if your chosen undead doesn't linke the fire and becomes a Dark Lord instead of a Lord of Cinder, are considered non-canonical)... so if not by bringing about an Age of Dark, how is the circle going to end?
