Funny thing about how all these nations with these cultures and all you find are husks of said to be great kingdoms, but yet not in a single souls game can you truly find anything truly lively and great. A lot of wasted potential, and really makes me question just how filled these kingdoms actually were because going by the games, these places (the ones that are shown) are always next to vacant.

This just goes to show that the souls series can't end, there's soo much more to explore and introduce. The story is so deep that its become something that is just unforgettable. Dark souls will forever be my favorite game series and I really do hope they make another one or makeup for all the lost exploration in Elden ring...

I came to the comments to find OscarGuy having a go at you about how "actually that's Oscar's set, it's unique and special to him, it's not worn by everyone in Astora omg, you'd think a lore master might know something." I'm almost disappointed that he's not here.

For londor I'm surprised you didn't mention vilhelms set as well, which was "a snug fit for any hollow", tho I'm paraphrasing, but he was a servant of the sable church for awhile, maybe same with Friede?

I think Anor Londo and Heide are connected, the architecture looks similar, the Blue Sentinels are like the heirs of the Darkmoon blades and if you carefully see there are statues of a person with a hawks head holding a sword, the same position that the Gwyn's statue in Anor Londo and the sword that the statues in Heide holds is LITERALLY the sword of the Great Lord

So glad you touched on Astora. Ever since I’ve read the description on the Evil eye ring, and donned the same set that Oscar, Anri, and Ricard did, and had jolly co-op with Solaire, I wondered if we would ever see Astora at all. It’s so interesting to imagine the place. I wanna give my thoughts, but don’t want to sway the competition.

DS stories gives me anxiety.. you can never really know what happened even though you really wanna know what happend. you don't get the satisfaction of having the complete story, and since the small pieces you get are so beautiful and somehow connect to eachother its just like emotional torture to try to make a whole picture out of it.

A suggestion for you to do in the future is some kind of an "Unseen Characters From the Souls Series" or something along those lines. There are a lot of characters and important people mentioned but not shown. Or just leave to the community's creativity to create their own characters, with their own unique armor sets, weapons and joyful or incredibily sad stories. I think it would be fricking cool to see.

Hey Vaati, I'm late by like 3 years, but here's an interesting insight in bloodborne. Did you know that, before fighting the Vicar Emilia boss, that you can hear her praying? You can hear her talk about Lawrence and say the quote "Fear the old blood" multiple times.

Hey, I've been watching your Sekiro videos lately and I've been loving them ( only started playing Sekiro a few days ago so you really got me into the lore). I have a question regarding the fight of Owl and Wolf at the Hirata estate. How does it make sense chronologically that three years before the point of the present Wolf already fought owl, killed him and yet Wolf still faces Owl at the top of Ashine castle? Isn't Owl supposed to be dead? Why doesn't Wolf nor Owl react in a way that would not even hint about their previous fight? I mean Owl does talk to you and offers the option of joining him even though you already killed him... The only way that it would make sense is that Owl already possessed some sort of resurrection power, and he still wanted to give Wolf the chance to join him perhaps. I would like to hear your opinion about it Thanks.

Personally, I would love to see Lindelt. A place of such corruptive faith that to not even being able to cast a Miracle is someone deemed forsakened by the Gods. I imagine a place filled with looming domed cathedrals and high social disparities. Those who do not rise within the Clerical ranks or some form of paladin are left with very little, making your ability to cast Miracles your only way up the social ladder. The Archdrake Sect of Lindelt seems to be its almost militaristic rulers. They are faithful warriors who uphold the strictures of religion while governing what information is actively revealed to the public. Lindelt's own founding is kept secret, and those who wish to know more and dig for answers simply vanish. Lindelt is surprisingly developed in its social and governmental structures. A land of faith in which only selective information is given out to the public. I really want to see artwork for Lindelt!
