I wonder if Aldia Keep is where all the creatures come from, it looks like some sort of monster making operations here!! Are those guys working in the lab the makers of the mimics?
From the mastodon greatsword : "terrible experiment were said to have taken place in a hidden manor in Drangleic. The mastermind presiding over the deeds was known as Lord Aldia" Surely he was experimenting on pretty much all monsters (and humans) he could find, it could explain the giant gas lizard we can find up the great hall's stairs.
Surprise surprise, another part of the walkthrough thats incredibly wrong.
Nothing here seems to mention the stupidly overpowered invaders that appear on SotFS when you light the sconces. Actually, there's hardly any mention of them anywhere...
"Twinkling Twilight" lol
In SotFS, every time you light a sconce, a red spirit will appear (similar to Forlorn). If you don't kill all of them, the game won't trigger the dragon skeleton attack.
btw, this area sucks big time. it's like they no longer cared at this point in development, just a bunch of old enemies thrown together in a generic castle.
Well, from my own interpretation Aldia just locked all this***** up for his sick sinful experiments, part of which made him what he is
