maybe slightly off topic; but replaying DS1 made me wonder about the painted world (which is related to velka, so only slighlty off topic
Why is pricilla's doll in the prison cell where you started.
The whole revisiting the Asylum is weird... i mean... curl up in that nest?
and then someone planted the doll in your old cell...
You were obviously ment to find it, but no-one tells you to go back except a prompt to curl up like an egg XD, so you weren't ment to find it easily.
Is this Velka's doing? is there any theory about all this? or is this just a gaming thing (nah it isnt, that would be lame).
Also... snuggly the crow...
okee... new theory... Snugly is Velka!! XD
ive been reading some item descriptions, and now im wondering if whoever planted the doll for you to find want you to discover the paining to find the power to kill the gods and their followers, or if they simply want to trap you inside because you are considered a threat to the gods.
many people seem to believe Velka is priscilla's mother. this could explain why she turned against her fellow 'gods'.
PRiscilla's descriptions mention her as 'the anthesis of all life'. this to me strongly suggests that she is very similar to the ancient dragons that seem to be responsible for half her being (some say seathe). If that is what she embodies, combined with the power to kill the gods (lifehunt|), it is understandable why the gods would fear priscilla...
Velka, as a mother, could easily have turned upon her former allies when they decided to rid themselves of her precious daughter. to me it sounds as if priscilla was locked up in the painting when she was really young (and still innoscent), as all that remains of her in lordran is a childs doll, all the more reason for a mother to rebel against such a decision...
