Well that was one the most epic and satisfying things ever (spoilers ahead, you've been warned).
So, I'm really taking my time with ER. Going slow, talking to NPCs, approaching everything with a curious mind... It's awesome, feels like my best experience with a FromSoft game. The progression of different characters' journeys comes off so much more natural than in previous games, as much as I adore them.
Anyways, after letting ol' Dung Eater out, I did the usual: check-in with other NPCs whom are relevant to whatever I was just doing. Roderika: "hmmm, no more voices in the other hall." Okay... Then Boggart: "he's around, somehwhere... " Now I'm nervious! (I grew to like Boggart, kind of shady but relatable in a way)
Went back Dung's spot in the Roundtable, found the ominous message: "Come to the outer moat." I realized what this implied, and said out-loud "no.... NO!" I immediately travel back to Boggart, but I'm too late. There he his, bound and begging for death, I felt so bad for him. Then that f-er showed up, and I was ready for him. We duke it out, trade blows, things are going okay, and then what happens? That crab!
That stupid crab! He gets into the fray, and I start screaming "not NOW, why NOW?" I'm jumping, I'm running and dodging- can't get a window! The attacks from the crab AND Dung Eater are such that I can't find an opportunity! Suddenly I see the crab raising his claws up super slowly, and I realize he's about to do his death-blight spew everywhere, I panic even more than I already have been, running for my life, and then I hear it: "ahhhhhHHHHHHEEEEGGGHHH!!!" *SPLAT*
I turn around and am somewhat horrified (but also relieved) to see Dung Eater, thrust into the air, screaming in agony, pierced by death-blight in a grim display of comeuppance. You got what you deserved, you wretch...
