The prophecy was just a lie told by the primordial serpents in the first place to get someone, anyone, to do what they want for them (succeed Lord Gwyn, either by kindling the First Flame or just getting it over with and kickstarting the Age of Dark).
Solaire and Siegmeyer are people who got pretty close to becoming the "Chosen Undead", Oscar of Astora, who tells you of the prophecy after helping you escape the Asylum, truly thought he could be the Chosen Undead, everyone can be the Chosen Undead because it's not a real prophecy; there's no fate or predestination attached to it. We the player character just happened to be the "Chosen Undead" who was actually competent enough to progress and not lose our humanity up until the very end.
#116 - hillbillypowpow (20 hours ago) [-]
Yeah. I didn't mean to say you're specific character in dark souls was guaranteed to be the chosen undead well I mean they kinda are but that's just because that's how games work , just that they did the thing that the chosen undead was supposed to do, so they are the chosen undead.
#70 - somecreepyguy (21 hours ago) [-]
BUT, the prophesy is non specific, indeed, many, many undead will try, only to fail at some point in their journey. the player is no more chosen than any other undead, plus, the gods were dead and dying, who exactly "chose" you? Nobody
Also, each person in Lordran is trying to find meaning, that doesnt mean ther is any, Solaire didn't choose to become undead to follow his quest, but he believes that the curse is merely what drew him to the area to complete the mission.
Oscar (the guy who gives you the flask) believed the prophesy applied to him, and it does, but he failed on his quest and hollowed.
The reminder that falure is always an option when we fight through the game, many of the NPCs and enemies are just like you. Most of the invaders, both player and AI are meant to be mindless, but lethal reflections what you could become, should you fail to re ignite the First Flame.

What people fail to realize is that there's 2 versions of the prophecy. 1 made by Gwyn and the other being the actual Primordial Serpent prophecy. The lord of darkness prophecy seems like it would be the canon prophecy since all the other primordial serpents acknowledge you as ruler even though you are an undead where as kaathe refused to follow Gwyns rule because the world and humans all belonged to Manus, not Gwyn.
#125 - somecreepyguy (19 hours ago) [-]
But the prophesies are not necessarily untrue. while the age of darkness may be nice as the god of darkness, it will be hell for humans, then some jackass with a messiah complex is just going to stab you eventually and restart the age of fire anyway. Gwyn seemed to be the only real nice guy in Lordran, he sacrificed his godlike power for his children and the humans, but unfortunately, he was the only really nice guy in Lordran. and the gods did little to help humanity after the fact, then refused to relight the fire themselves.
#127 - janosaudron (19 hours ago) [-]
Gwyn was a coward who forced the hell of the undead upon the humans. He feared the dark and manus. Izalith fell because he asked the witch to recreate the first flame. He then tried to unnaturally extend the life of the original First flame and created the curse of the undead. The humans all came from Manus not Gwyn. Gwyn only lead them to take the world from the dragons. In DS2 noone knew about the first flame. They had forgotten Gwyn and Anor Londo. The only reason Vendrick went to Anor Londo was to steal the first flame and the lordvessel because Nashandra(Manus) told him to go there. That's why the undead appeared in Drangleic. Vendrick lit the flame then realized the cost of lighting it. He realized the power the flame had and again feared what Nashandra would do with that power so instead of sending it back to Anor Londo he locked it away. The prophecy in DS2 comes from Aldia, He knew what the flame did and he knew that the flame caused humans to hollow. He knew the only way to truly save humans was to allow the flame to die and for manus to give humans their true form

But the incident with the demons was an accident. Destroying Oolacile is what happens when the darkness is allowed to spread as it naturally does. this was because the light was on its last legs, and the Abyss was and is always gaining strength. While Gwyn may be ultimately self serving, he did sacrifice his soul (not just the lord soul, or his life force, but his humanity) to keep the age of light going. The origin of the curse can be debated until the cows come home, but I seems to me, that the excess human souls (humanity Sprites) are what makes the undead, the darkness, and humanity spreads until it covers everything. only fire can wipe the slate clean so something else can grow in its place. The undead are a massive collection of the humanity of many other people, as such,they are incredibly hard to kill, returning always to collect more to feed their growing power.
The balance is the key, while humanity is linked to the darkness, the Darkness is no more "good" than the Fire, with humans reaching their greatest heights when both where at even levels.
#141 - janosaudron (19 hours ago) [-]
That's the other thing. You don't know who's human until someone states it or theyre undead. Ciaran wasn't human. Gwyn wasn't human. Artorias wasn't human. How many of oolaciles citizens were human? Even Agadyne says that humans belong to the dark. We know of 2 humans that traveresed the abyss without protection and remained unchanged by it. The princess of Oolacile and the Darkdiver. Does the Abyss only violently change nonhumans because they don't belong in it?
#140 - janosaudron (19 hours ago) [-]
Aldia states that the undead didn't appear until Gwyn linked the first flame. Not even Gwyn knew that he would create undead. He just wanted to save his own kingdom from the humans. Humans were supposed to inherit the world Gwyn and his children were supposed to die. Manus is the true form of humans in the Dark souls universe. They were supposed to be consumed by the abyss and be changed by it. The opening of Ds1 states that the undead suddenly appeared. In Ds2 shanalotte says that the undead didn't appear until Vendrick returned with the flame. In both games when we return to the past the undead arent present.
Onto the spread of the Abyss. Those infected by the abyss and not strong enough to withstand it became monsters. Yet the princess of Oolicile stood in the abyss without the covenant of Artorias and remained unchaged. I'll have to find it again but i remember reading that the only reason the abyss had that effect on people is because Manus was pissed. He had lost his pendant and at the time the pendant was the only thing that comforted him. This led to him kidnapping the princess so he could feel comfort once more. Which also explains why she remained completely human even though she sat directly next to manus while Artorias who had his covenant became consumed by it.
Gwyn did not want to help humans as he was not human. Artorias was not Human. Ciaran even goes so far as to state that they were different from humans if you attack her. The curse itself did end until the flame was kindled and the cycle started again
#273 - somecreepyguy (15 hours ago) [-]
This is pretty much conjucture, but I THINK that all the super humans and such that are ascociated with gwyn where had their origins in baseline humanity. The gods and other Lord Soul owners inherited the power of the souls, but it was not always theirs. We know that Gwyn split the power of his Lord Soul between children and other servants (the four kings, seath) so it is not unreasonable that it could have been split and given to the likes of Artorius and the other knights. given that the timeframe of the war with the dragons , and the fuckery of darksouls time in general, it may be that the empowered knights have been separate for so long as to no longer consider themselves human. This may be supported by the golem of both dark souls and the fact that in dark souls 2, there are still many more super human beings that roam the land. the golum is described as being powered by an ancient dragon soul, so perhaps the non undead heroes who killed dragons managed to gain some of their strength as well.
As to the curse, it appears to resurface as the flame is dying, not when it is rekindled. while the recindling may be imperfect, causing the curse in the first place, the act of kindling is at worst a band-aid solution.

So you're saying the prophecy isn't about you, you're just the one that did it? Because that's how prophecies work, right? Like if a prophecy says someone will do a thing, and then a guy does the thing, then they are the one from the prophecy, otherwise it's not a prophecy.
#86 - somecreepyguy (20 hours ago) [-]
This prophesy, being no specific is about anyone. But most of the time, when there is a "Chosen One" there is a single person, chosen by a higher power. (As in Skyrim) But the Gods of Dark souls are artificial, dying, or severely weakened. The player has no special powers that are unavailable to other undead, indeed, the other players exist in the same universe, if tenuously, they too may choose to link the flame, or not. they might despair (Git Gud) and simply decide to go play Skyrim, or stay at a certain level and play pvp. Which brings up another point, chosing to link the fire or not is not important, we know that you hollow out no matter what. Lord Gwin burned himself, but the corps you fight remains, si its fair to assume the same will happen to you. or you let the fire continue to fade, and you wander the lands until you hollow anyway. no matter what, you'll probably become nobody boss to the next "chosen undead" to battle, either at the first flame, or somewhere in the world.
#99 - hillbillypowpow (20 hours ago) [-]
So you can fulfill the prophecy of killing the old gods and such, but it will repeat, but if the prophecy says the chosen undead does this, doesn't it just mean that you and also the people who do the same thing after you are all chosen undead? Granted that that doesn't give you an advantage in any way, unlike in skyrim where you get to learn shouts instantly instead of studying them for years like the Graybeards.
#123 - somecreepyguy (19 hours ago) [-]
But if your all the chosen undead, chosen by no one, what are you?
A guy who is merely a part of the circle of the universe. While still having the ability to be heroic, he or she is merely a piece of the greater order. No cosmic balancer of good and evil, not the last hope of the dying world, and not the avatar of a deity sent for their own devices. Its not about YOU, its about someone, eventually, if they get the time, and the if its not too much trouble.
its like someone needs to turn on the light each day at work, but its wired in such a way as to electrocute whoever does it. they go down the list alphabetically , and if you refuse, you get fired. whoever does it each day may be the a good man, or the janitor who was tricked, it doesn't matter, as long as everyone can get to work. everyone is chosen, but only the person stupid enough to kill themselves will actually do it. (for metaphorical completion, the people who refuse are killed when they walk out the door and the factory has an extremely bad mortality rate)
#138 - hillbillypowpow (19 hours ago) [-]
Really it's just a name given to the guy that is pretty arbitrary. Also if was was to be in a prophecy and I had to chose between being the chosen undead chosen by no one or the chosen undead chosen by great elders or some shit like that, chosen by no one sounds way more bad ass.

You know the joke where you can just print new 3D printers if you have one to begin with?
My landlord/neighbor actually does that.
He uses his first 3D printer, a DIY kit he bought online, to make a lot of the parts needed, and he orders the rest of the parts online. Then he plans to sell them as fully functional complete DIY kits in his store. Just assemble, and you have a functioning 3D printer.
It's pretty fun stuff to have as a hobby.
The only downside is waiting for your stuff to print out.
Depending on the size, it can take hours.
The shotgun shell holder i had him print for me, and posted a picture of,
took about 30 min to print.
