Sooooo I have a question.
I'm not much into DS but i read into the lore of the 3rd game. So... how do you become an Unkindled. I mean the fire just decides that ""nah, man, not in the mood today" or you have to be worthy to link it or something? I would get it if it's the worthy thing, like when you rise up you get anyother chance but I have no other ideas.

I know this is a late reply, but to answer your question, yes, it's based on worth. More so raw power and strength of the soul than any kind of "worthiness" in the sense of something like Mjolnir where you have to be strong and pure of heart and all that jazz. Which is why something like Aldrich was a lord even though he was super dickish and ate people, he was strong, so he was able to link the fire and like Ludleth who is small and frail, but his soul is very, very strong. Your character in Dark Souls 3 was meant for the same thing but their soul was too weak and couldn't link the fire and just smoldered into ash, becoming, "an ashen one" as you're known throughout the game. Hope this helped with the confusion and sorry for the kinda scatterbrained paragraph of text. c:

I never thought of it like that. If you kinda step back and look at everything in a different perspective, Dark Souls is like a giant war. Dark Souls 1 takes place in the first refueling the flame and it must have been close to a millennium for it to be your turn to tag in. But once it becomes your turn to tag in, in Dark Souls 3 it look like it's been decades if not a thousand years. Because everything has been in a giant fight. There's dead bodies everywhere, dead demons, dead dragons, dead nomads. And you're going up against 3 people who has linked the flame, 1 person who did link the flame but realize it's gonna be sooner or later, and a prince who let it all happened. So thats 4 times the flame had the be refueled so this ain't 100 years apart, this is what I assume 2000 years apiece. So if Seigmyer is attached to Yhorm, and Anri and Horace is attached to Aldritch. The timeline between them must been far and between, and whose to say this isn't their first time popping up? Like when Ludleth was up to refuel the flame do you think Sirris and Solaire tagged in while Horace was in god knows where?

That explains a lot for a aspect of the game that I love. You're never told nothing straight forward, you have to read the details of a item to know "whose-who?" Because you're a guy who just came back to life. So Andre probably smith the sword that lead to the Abyss Watchers linking the flame.

Dark Souls is a constant struggle between Fire and Dark, in this sense, yes, it's a war. In the first game, Frampt tells you that he'd been waiting for a thousand years for the Chosen Undead-- And that doesn't say much. A thousand years since Gwyn linked the Fire first? Or a thousand years since the Undead curse appeared?

I'd assume the latter, because if not, then Goddamn the cycles are short. Assuming the Curse appears only after five hundred years, saying half the cycle is fine and the other half is the Curse, would be insanely short. I'd assume two thousand years is the right amount of time for each cycle.

But think about this. Two thousand years since Gwyn linked the fire. Two thousand years is still a blink of the eye on a cosmic scale. And you as the player character compare nothing to Gwyn's Lord Soul before it was consumed, alongside all of his Knights. How long did you burn before someone else had to take their turn?

In Dark Souls 2, you learn that many Kingdoms rose and fell, many cycles took place. You have no idea how long it's been since Dark Souls 1. But let's assume it was even just ten. Twenty thousand years since the first game. Twenty? Forty thousand years. And you, the player character, link the Fire again.

By Dark Souls 3, so much time has passed that it would be impossible to say. But the world is closer to death than ever before. Each time the Flame has been lit, it's needed more. Gwyn took half his army with him. Yhorm's attempt was the oldest of the Lords in Dark Souls 3, and his went wrong because he didn't bring enough Kindling with him. Aldrich had devoured so many people, had so many Souls within him, that he was enough. The Abyss Watchers were an entire Legion. And the player characters have all had so many Souls within them from their fight.

Ludleth stepped in as a Lord because Lothric left the world in Darkness. But even he was weak, and it caused almost a vacuum effect-- He relit the Fire, but it wasn't sated, still teetering on the edge of Dark, so as it began to die more, it needed more than ever before. So it brought back the Lords of Cinder, so that they could sacrifice themselves again. But Yhorm's attempt went wrong. Aldrich never wanted to. Lothric never wanted to. And the Abyss Watchers' entire reason for doing so was to stop the Abyss, and it didn't work. They were all betrayed to some degree.

The Unkindled present are definitely there for the first time, because they all die a true death when their mission is completed.

It's questionable if Humanity even exists anymore. Any land referenced is referenced as in ruins, or is known to have already fallen. Everyone might be Undead or Unkindled, nobody can say for certain. The Demons only died out recently, but the war in Lothric started because the Prince refused the Fire, and those who believed in it started a war with those who didn't, a difference of ideals. The Dragons have long since been dead, but the Wyverns are dying out too.

Life is conflict. When the Dragons were around, before life, there was a peace in the apathy. Life brought conflict. Life is war, is struggle.

It's a dying world coming ever closer to death. Even if you link the Fire in DkS3, it's not enough. The flame is so small it barely consumes you. Like a candle with no wick, there's nothing left to light. The Age of Dark has always been inevitable, but now it's here, like it or not.

It depends where you are, here in Quebec it takes a year to get a license, and might cost close to 900$ for all the courses

I didn't even have to take any courses, personally. So yeah, I suppose location makes a difference too.
