So, my brother bought this months ago, I don't remember exactly when, and I played a little bit of it then, but soon after I stopped due to the fact I felt like I had to grind a lot (which doesn't have to be the case I guess), I bought other games, and I felt a bit guilty even trying to progress when I didn't play through Demon's Souls. Anyways, with all of that out of the way, I am playing that now, and I think I'm going to go through it, but there's at least one thing I can think of that I wanted to ask now, I'll have to play it again to see if I have more. Anyways, I want to know about the flasks. How come sometimes often, and sometimes not, while I'm just running around the health flasks refill? Will this keep going, or will it stop after hours into the game? I understand they fill up as you're at a bonfire. OK, I'll be back later to maybe write more into here, and reply to comments if need be, then edit it all. Later.
Oh, have another one until I have to go. Can I get through the game by just being dead the whole time (where the characters face looks burnt/dead), or will I have to summon others while having the chance of someone coming into the game killing me? I remember I did that once to show my brother what it does and to see what it did for myself, I did it, and right then and there, someone came into my game, I blocked, but he wasn't doing anything, like he was playing with me since he could probably tell I was just starting out. Luckily someone else joined and they both fell off a cliff, so I took their souls. I think that can happen, and I believe that is what happened. Or that one guy fell off the cliff and I got his souls, I don't exactly remember, but I do believe there were two people in my game. Anyways! That's my other question so far. See ya!
One more question for now. How many times do guys not respawn? Or are there certain types that don't? 'Cause there was one time when I killed this magic dude that shoots stuff out at you, and when I killed him, then went back to the bonfire, and came back to the area he should have been, he wasn't there anymore. Maybe he was some type of special enemy. I really have to get to know these names of items and enemies.
