@LordXavierBritish: That was my other thought. Does the game normally notify you when you're being invaded? I don't remember seeing any message. It would be pretty funny if the first time I was invaded, the guy died before he even reached me.

This thread has been super helpful so far. Thanks to all the more experienced players helping out us noobs.
Anyway, I had a really weird experience earlier, and I was wondering if anyone knew if it was normal, or just a glitch. I had been running back and forth between the undead burg bonfire, and the bonfire just above the blacksmith to farm souls. My last time through, I was coming from the blacksmith, and as soon as I passed through the small archway just before the side entrance to the cathedral, it fogged over. I killed the enemies in the immediate area, and then tried to go back through the archway, but I couldn't. It didn't give me a button prompt or anything. It was like I had entered a boss arena, where the fog covers all the exits, and you can't leave the area. I looked around in the cathedral, and noticed that the elevator was similarly blocked off. FYI, I had already cleared out the 2 mini-bosses earlier, but have not beaten the gargoyles. I proceeded to clear out the knights in the cathedral, and then checked the archway again. This time it was clear.
I have never seen this happen before, or since. At first I thought that maybe this was what happened when someone invaded your world (I'm pretty sure I was human at the time), but I figured they would notify you of such an event. I'm guessing it was just a glitch, and I got lucky that it just happened the one time, and disappeared quickly.
