So I feel like I have made some significant progress today and am starting to get a handle on more of how Demon's Souls works. I've worked my way through every world and now am ready to start taking on the second parts of most of the worlds. Let us get into my adventures and I shall share with you more tales from Demon's Souls.
So decided to run through the first part of the Boletarian Palace so that I could find places I had missed, mostly cause I learned you can climb over certain ledges. Sure enough there was a whole bottom area I did not check out and guess who I found there? That's right, Ostrava of Boletaria! I saved him from some dredges and in gratitude he gave me a telescope. Not the best gift in the world but with the isolation they build in this game it's a big event when you meet someone else who is not out to kill you.
After that it was back to the dungeon of Hope in the Tower of Latria. Taking down more cthulu demons I managed to find the keys I need to open more cell doors and freed Sage Frake, The Visionary. Not really useful to me since I don't use magic, but I couldn't leave him in that dungeon. I fought me way further through and found an NPC who said "i am just a servant, I won't get in your way promise". Ignore the messages sayign he is a liar I continued on to the boss. Four tries...FOUR TRIES before i took down the False Idol only to find out that NPC i left alone resurrected it. Needless to say I went back and stabbed the bejeesus out of that damn liar and then killed the boss again, which wasn't too bad since i had figured out her pattern now.
Next was a jaunt into the Shrine of Storms where I learned the value of a good bow and how to manage my stamina. Demons come fast and furious, rolling all over the place and constantly striking at you. I took my new lessons to heart and managed to make my way to the boss. The Abjucator was actually not too difficult and I managed to figure out his pattern and take him down first try! Definitely getting more competant with the battle system, dodging, blocking, all that jazz. So that's boss 2 down and I got a sweet shield and ring that give me health regeneration!
Finally I decided to end the night going through the Valley of Defilement, which actually was much much easier than the Shrine of Storms. Again it wasn't too bad, a short jaunt to the boss Leechmonger where I promptly died by falling off the platform. yeah, it was pretty dumb but I fought my way there a second time and just stabbed it to death. Again the boss wasn't too difficult and victory was mine! That's 3....count em, 3 bosses taken down today. Like I said I made some significant progress and feel pretty good, though I know I am still missing a lot of systems and such. Still, today much progress was made! Next Sunday I venture further into the Tower of Latria!
