** The Sandworm got into Smouldering Lake by falling into it from above; perhaps he did too?

* How did Aldrich, Sulyvahn, and their followers all make it from the Cathedral to Irithyll without getting into a fight with the Abyss Watchers?


* How did that demon get into the Catacombs? There are only two doors in that chamber, and he's too big to fit through either of them.

** It was mentioned in DSII that [[spoiler: Gilligan went to Dranglaic to try to avoid his old associates]], so maybe he just moved on at some point and that location was as good as any. The people there are hostile to *you*, sure, but they may have not minded him squatting there.

* According to Miyazaki the Unkindled are Undead that were unable to link the fire because they lack the strength or will to do so, that's all fine and well, but how does the playable character come into being an Unkindled? they are absolutely relentless and while they aren't the strongest there is, they are capable of defeating Ludex Gundyr, meaning that, at the very least they had some potential to them.

Added DiffLines:

**Itís confirmed that Lothric was the one intended to link the fire in the Ashen Oneís cycle, but refused because his tutor was a scholar who doubted the linking of the fire. Lothric and Lorian were bound together by Lorian at some point so that Lorian could take the brunt of the sickly Lothricís ailment (caused by Oceirosí incessant selective breeding), rendering him mute, crippled, and practically one in soul with his brother. Deciding not to link the fire, they retreated to their castle, letting it fade. When the other four Lords who HAD linked the fire were revived and abdicated because linking the flame hurts, the Unkindled were rebived to hunt them down.

Added DiffLines:

**** Though the "wretched child of the Abyss" line may have been metaphorical.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also available as a Pyromancy that engulfs foes at range and burns them to ashes, in the same vein as the [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsII Flame Swathe]]. The Profaned Flame, born of the sky, is said to have incinerated naught but human flesh. Perhaps, it's a specific kind of flame that only sets human flesh on fire while leaving everything else intact.


* What happened to the kingdom of Thorolund? There's no mention of it anywhere. Did it just got ruined or was it absorbed by Carim or something?

** Essentially, no one has any clue what will happen if/when the Age of Dark comes to pass. Gwyn and the gods believed that it would spell the end of the world, or at least all life in the world. Other feared the Abyss would consume everything, and nothing in these games consumed by the Abyss ever comes out well. Others believed that the Age of Dark would be an Age of Man, with humanity (who have always had ties to the Dark) being the new top dogs of reality. Still others believe that life itself would alter and change, becoming something unrecognizable to those of the Age of Fire, but still continuing on in its new form. Lots of theories, but nobody actually ''knows''. What they ''do'' know is that the Age of Fire was an era of prosperity for the gods of Anor Londo and most life as we know it... so trying to prolong it rather than succumb to a potentially world-ending fate makes sense.

Added DiffLines:

* They shouldn't; there's nothing specifically stating that only the Chosen Undead(s) linked the Fire, but this also doesn't necessarily mean that the Bearer Of The Curse is a part of it, either; it isn't like they're the only one capable of sorcery.

Added DiffLines:

*** As of The Ringed City DLC, this theory has been established as canon. The Dreg Heap is where older kingdoms end up once the First Flame has been linked, or just before.

Added DiffLines:

*** As to Iudex Gundyr, it's because HIS future is your present. [[spoiler: From what we know, Ludleth seems to have actually forcibly willed himself to become the Lord of Cinder that Gundyr was meant as. So essentially, when you go back to the Untended Graves, you're seeing what was originally happening, while the Firelink Shrine you go to is what IS happening]]


Added DiffLines:

*** To be fair, we've seen what the Abyss does. Oolacile, New Londo... Burning a nation down seems ALMOST merciful in comparison to that.

Added DiffLines:

** Only two of the butterflies ever attack you, the two that animate the armor, and if you swing the camera around to look at them as the armor "dies" they die with it. It's safe to assume that only those two were hostile and the rest are just there for whatever reason.


** The Age of Fire is the age of the gods of Anor Londo, with the Age of Dark supposedly being an age where humans would be the ones in power. So, the gods try their best to keep themselves in power, while manipulating the humans into pretty much screwing themselves for the gods' benefit.
