The other thread that wasn't meant for lore or spoilers has been taken over by said talk, so I figured we needed a place to air out all our theories, questions and answers. As stated in the title, the spoilers will be explicit, so be warned. Once/if the discussion kicks off a little, I may begin the start collecting the facts and theories in this first post, as I think it'd be cool to have a database of sorts. But I'll wait and see what the interest is like.
I'll kick things off. The 4 Lord Souls of the first game can be acquired from the 4 new bosses (Duke's Dear Freja, Lost Sinner, The Rotten, Old Iron King) in NG+. How do you think they acquired said souls? I've seen some interesting theories about reincarnation being passed around, but I'd like to hear what you guys think.
