A battle vs a grotesque knight begins at the rotten waterfront. Its steel-clawed figure so nimble, what sort of offensive and defensive skills will it have?
“Please, cover your eyes” – The Nun of Ariandel in “Friede” form. She who lives in a small church at a spiritual cliff, looks after a Father who looks like a ball.
In the snowy fields of Ariandel, a white tree that is half female form awaits. The majority are simply holding on the flames in their arms against the strong snow winds, like a mother who has lost a child.
Long ago, a sorcerer born in Ariandel left the land to pursue the ambition ardent on his chest. This is the one magic left behind by this sorcerer, that imbues the weapon in frost. The weapon then slowly drops icy flakes.
The hero walks towards the bottom of the cliff, following the complex roots of the giant tree. Beyond it, the hard frozen valley awaits.
In Ariandel, completely unknown pyromancies have taken root. This is a fireball of chaos contained in ones hand. It seems as if several beams of fire will fly from this pyromancy.
Oh, you’re the newcomer? – The hero meets this character soon after entering Ariandel. Whilst something sleeps in the corrupted bed, he welcomes the hero as a new resident to this world. The words betray the madness that plagues Ariandel
Knights emerge from the frozen white as if demons. They hunt in groups, so it’s better to go around to avoid being surrounded.
A lone knight and wolves sit by the snow-covered grave. The sword the knight bears, and the lion shield on his back was lauded as courage of old. Whose sword lies by the grave?
The ruins and leaning tower that appeared in the snowy field. It would seem the stalwart knights protect it. In their helmets, one may see a special mark at a specific angle.
