From the sunlight altar, I cut a swathe through undead burg, my new blade cleaving effortlessly through the hollows and my bolts striking foes down from afar. I was a one-woman wrath of God, unstoppably cleansing the city of evil. I eventually ended back up in Firelink Shrine, and briefly stopped at the bonfire before something caught my attention: a giant crow was perched high upon a ledge, looking down at me.
Curiously, I approached it. All it did was look at me just as curiously, as if it was expecting me to do something. I sighed started looking around the shrine for whatever it could possibly want. Eventually, I found its nest. Unable to think of anything else to do, I curled up into a ball.
They said I could be anything, so I became an egg.
After a minute, the crow flew by and, grasping me in its talons, carried me off into the sky. It dropped me off in a nest on a snowy slope that looked uncannily familiar... I walked back down the steps to the Asylum. Curious, I made my way back to my cell.
Standing in my cell, glaring at me, was another of those tall, black knights. It charged me the moment it saw me, but I rolled behind it and thrust my sword into his back, forcing it to its knees. I summarily finished it off and examined my cell. A new body had been placed there... and by it, a doll... I took the doll for safekeeping and headed back to the bonfire. From there I headed back into the asylum itself, and very soon came face to face with something I never wanted to see.
My savior, the one knight who had given his life for mine... He lunged at me, his body telling the story of hollow bloodlust. I sighed in despair and struck him down. It was all I could do to preserve the honor of the man who had done such a noble deed... I said a prayer for him and thanked him one last time before heading back into the Asylum, his noble crested shield upon my arm.
I scoured the rest of the Asylum of the undead and rested at the central bonfire before heading out. As I was walking through the square, though, I felt the floor shake before suddenly falling out from under me. My gaze shifted downwards as I fell, deftly rolling when I hit the floor. My legs were wracked with the pain of the impact, and I was busy drinking estus when a thunderous footstep got my attention.
I turned and brought my shield up in time to intercept a vicious attack from a great monster many times my size. Towering over me, the great demon was massive and rotund, wielding a huge club even longer than it was tall. It reared back for another attack and I rolled out of the way, forming a bolt of lightning in my hand as I did and throwing it at the thing. It lanced through the air and cut a deep wound in its putrid flesh. As I readied another bolt, it swung its club to the side and a massive explosion shook the room, blasting me off of my feet; I staggered backward and brought the crested shield up to block another explosion. Though the force pushed me back, the shield held firm and saved me by the skin of my teeth. After a quick drink of estus and another dodge roll, I assessed the situation. I couldn't fight it at this range, its magic was faster than mine.
I took the only other option I could find; I ran straight at the beast, dodging another attack and rolling behind its legs, slashing at its ankles as I could and rending deep cuts into its hide with my divine blade. It merely stood there, raising its club vertically, not even facing me; not knowing what to expect, I rolled away from it in time to see it plunge its club into the ground, creating a massive explosion that stopped just short of me. I resumed clawing away at its legs, moving under it and confusing it to the best of my ability. I slowly whittled away at its flesh, eventually getting through its protective hide and then finally hewing its leg clean off. It dropped to one knee and I jumped onto its back, stabbing my blade into it for support; I wrenched it out of the wound and plunged the sacred steel into the back of the demon's neck, killing it instantly. The foul creature fell to the ground and slowly vanished from sight.
I climbed out of the pit a stronger woman, beaten and bruised but ready for anything. I was ready to truly face the perils of Lordran.
Then a torch-wielding hollow hit me in the back of the head. I was moderately annoyed.
Regardless, I made my way back to Firelink via crow and rested. The beginning of my journey was officially over. It was time to truly save this accursed world.
