I'm new to Dark Souls, recently started really getting into DS3, I never knew there were Varangians in Dark Souls that's super cool. In real life Varangians were Viking, Rus, and Anglo-Saxon mercenaries who worked for the Byzantine Empire and basically did all the elite soldier stuff like protecting the emperor and doing the special forces type of stuff on the battlefield at the time. This was because the Emperors trusted Norse honor over the loyalty of their own people

Maybe Wolnir built the catacombs of Carthus were built next to Anor Londo on purpose either as a proof of his conquest or perhaps as a superstitious fear of the abyss, to be in the presence of the gods for protection.

4:08 Or, since they had many of their own abyss watchers who were felled in those regions, their blood was what bound them together? The blood is a vessel for the soul, after all; and they could very well be bound by Wolfblood. So while the Abyss Watchers ultimately died somewhere else, causality & the bonds between the remnant souls in their blood pulled the world together somehow, like a messed up patchwork of corpses

There are lycanthrope like corpses chained to crosses in Farren Keep. I was assuming they were just survivors of an execution by poisoning. Now I get possibly why they were executed. Maybe they were exhibiting symptoms? Possibly a pandemic? Was there a magic blood expiration date? I wonder if they all got sick at once or did one turn into a werewolf and pass it around due to their ability to live again. Like an undead borne pathogen? Is it contagious and could that possibly be the reason why there are undead everywhere in the first place? I mean a vast majority of the undead are soldiers reliving their posts and battles over and over. There has to be a reason why.

Something about the Lycanthropes that terrifies me and I wonder if there's something to it, but, when they die... watch them. They don't die like others. There's a delay, they stop, and in realizing their imminent death they look in all directions and scream "NO" in terror as if they're being surrounded, and taken away. I could be projecting, but look at them, and listen to their cry. They're not reacting in pain, they're reacting to death...

Abyss watchers: Crusaders that actually succeeded so hard everyone hated them and convinced them to go and burn to death. Yhorm: Tall girl but a guy and an emo. Oh and he was king of some counterfeit shit flame or something. Aldrich: Vore porn but even worse, somehow. Ate half a femboy and took a nap so good it took the chosen one coming to kill him to wake him up.

your wrong about the absence of the four lords causing the convergence. if the lothric knights are defending against convergence, that must be pre-civil war because after the civil war they are defending against winged knights and we see large numbers of them dead. The civil war between the winged knights at the lothric knights occurs only because of the princes refusal to take this throne and link the fire. This means the convergence must have been happening before the prince forsook his throne, before the fire needed to resurrect lords and unkindled ash. In short, there must be some other reason for convergence then the need to feed the fire a lord soul.

It always bugs me when the "Age of the Deep" gets mentioned. The Age of the Deep is Bloodborne because it resides on the layer of the Souls cosmology below Ash Lake where the Old Ones reside. When Umbasa consumed the world he retreated into the sea and the trees upon which worlds were built grew from his back. Below, within the Deep, he dreams.

The occult refers to this, ‘ dark magic used by pagans who are unaligned with, and hostile to the gods’ Just nitpicking but ‘pagans’ are almost the opposite concept to the occult in dark souls. Pagans worship the old pantheon of gods. If anything, occultism would be, imo, more like science or even monotheism which effectively ‘kills the gods’ like the occult damage in dks.

the Abyss Watcher armor text in my opinion is about how they saw the rot and abyss is consuming themselves (just like it once did to their master) not that they always knew but more like once in the end that it had consumed them they too could see the corruption on the outside as it literally had stained their armor.

The Catacombs of Carthus could be buried beneath Farron, not as a ruin belonging to old Carthus, but as a Museum of sorts for the conquests of the Abyss Watchers. They keep the riches of their conquests within reach, store the corpses of their enemies beneath them as a reminder to their past victories. Like the Museum of Natural History has a Egyptian wing for pillaged treasures, so do does Farron have a Carthus catacomb for their own pillaged rewards - which happens to include a relic of old Wolnir. Just a thought.
