Yes, Indeed” My title doesn’t lie...

So I’m back here with another story, and I hope it’ll be a good one as I’m now basing this story in the land of Dark Souls III. I think I’m going to have this be a bit of a longer one due to the premise I have in mind, but that’s ok, gives you guys more to read, you guys like build up, and I get to be creative in a world I enjoy... to hate...

(honestly I got the idea literally an hour ago after restarting DS3, Hooray for simple inspiration)

This is going to be following the player character, so what is already in the games belongs to FromSoft, other stuff’s fair game! Though unless you are looking at every single item description, u don’t get most of the story in a Souls game anyway, so I guess this can help with that if anyone is interested in it yet has raged too much to be able to complete the games. don’t worry man, I was there too once...

And so begins, our story with Athena!

Chapter 0: The Unkindled One

“Hi, you’re probably wondering who I am, or where you are. Well, allow me to introduce myself! My name is Athena, I’m 23 and woke up from a pretty long sleep recently, kinda reviving me from my failure of linking the fire before and...”

“Oh, sorry, I like to ramble a bit. Anyways, as you can see I’m about 5’9” with about mid length Black hair, though with Beige skin that’s not too common for some. I was born with beautiful blue eyes that I just love to stare into sometimes, they remind me of the ocean and-“

“Hey are you listening?! *Sigh* yes, I’m a girl and I have boobs, ok? Don’t have to gawk at them, they’re only a D cup anyways...”

“Oh, you weren’t looking at my breasts? My swords? Oh... yeah they’re just some normal light swords, I enjoy dual wielding, as I can be less predictable that way.” *wink*

“Right, now that you know who I am, now as to where we are... to be honest I’m not quite sure, I kinda just woke up here with you. Don’t worry though, I will keep you in the know of anything that’s too confusing! Wait... you can’t actually talk? OH! I know what will help!”

Athene reaches into her pocket and pulls out an long orange stone.

“This is what’s called an Orange Soapstone! Simply write out the message you want me to read and i’ll see it! That way we can actually communicate with each other! Isn’t that just so cool?!”

“Anyways, I’m off now for my adventures! Hopefully meet again soon!”

I will say now, we shall be following Athena through the story as a phantom, though not a summon, phantoms are people you can sometimes see. So it will be normal that she knows we’ve seen her do things in the story.

Also what she said is true, Your comments will act as a Soapstone message if you would like and Athena will answer your questions to the best of her ability, so ask anything you’d like, be it back story, clarity on an event, a general curiosity, etc.

Now for the Fun to begin!

Chapter 1: The Untended Graves

Athena had just been talking with an interesting Summon after her awakening from the old Stone coffin she had been laying in. it had just sort of appeared, though it didn’t have any gear, so instead she kinda just talked to it. Normally this wouldn’t work, but it seemed to understand her when she spoke to it. She she didn’t stay on the thought as she had her quest to fufil, to link the first flame!

”Hmm, now where exactly should I go?” She thought to herself.

There were a few undead that she stumbled across, but they were nothing, she simply sliced them with both of her twin blades and they were dead on the ground. She still had an uneasy thought.

“Strange, normally undead don’t just stay dead from what I remember others telling me, yet this place looks nothing like where my last moments of life were...”

She smacks her face with her hand

“Of course it isn’t similar you goof, this is a graveyard for goodness sakes, why would it look anything like There?” *giggles*

As Athena pressed on, she noticed a choice of 2 paths, one straigh ahead going to what seemed outside from all the tombs of this enclosed area she was in, the other to her right, filled with water and seemingly headed to another area of the enclosed space.

“Eh, if I go that way I’ll probably find more of these chumps, and hey, souls are souls I guess! Right we go!”

And so Athena went through the watery path to her right, though it was deeper than she expected it to be. Thankfully the path curved a bit further down and the water ended, but not before her boots were filled with water. She sat down on a nearby rock and quickly emptied out her boots.

“Guess you can’t explore for some good loot without getting your feet wet!”

Athena stands up and looks around the new area.

“Ah man, it’s just a cave area with no roof on-“

She cuts herself short as she sees a massive pile of Bright Blue Crystals.

“Is that a massive pile of Crystal Titanite?!” She exclaims loudly “This stuff will sell for so much! Not to mention if I find a blacksmith how much my blades can be upgraded!”

Athena quickly ran towards the mound of titanite, and it slowly started to shift. She stopped just beside the mound when she noticed the shift.

“Huh? I guess there would be a crystal lizard or 2 on a pile this...”

She cut off as she noticed a massive black tail covered in blue crystals slowly slid around beside her.


She finished her sentence as the large pile started to wake up revealing itself to be a massive Crystal Lizard. It was on it’s hind legs and was 2 times her size. The Lizard looked down and growled.

*Gulp* “Hi friend... I, uh, was just admiring your crystals! They’re very shiny!”

Athena smiled at the Lizard very nervously and outstretched her hand slowly. The Lizard saw this as an attack and immediately went for a bite. Athena rolled backwards just in time.

*sigh* “Never let your guard down I guess...”

Athena quickly drew her twin blades and went in, finally, a tough battle had begun.

The Lizard going in for a strong strike was quite quick, but Athena had trained for many years for combat, so she was prepared for most any attacks. The Lizard went for one strike with it’s claw and as Athena dodged she failed to notice the second claw come it and smack her to the ground. The Lizard quickly went in for another bite but Athena riled to the side just in time. The Lizard tumbled and rolled, leaving a trail of crystals to burst behind it. As Athena stood up, the Lizard was coming back with a roll and she jumped to the side again, now prepared for where it stopped and got a couple slashes in. The Lizard quickly spun around and slammed to the ground, causing a small shockwave of crystals to form and staggering Athena a bit. As the Lizard was winding up, Athena noticed a small gap in the Crystals near it’s face. As they both charged each other, Athens stabbed the lizard in the gap, causing them both to pause for a couple seconds. The Lizard fell and it’s body shimmered and faded away, giving Athena many souls and leaving her with a Titanite scale.

“Well, it’s not Crystal Titanite, but st least it’s valuable.”

Athena quickly pocketed the scale and walked back to the watery path headed back.

“I don’t remember Crystal Lizards ever getting to that size.” she thought ”maybe they do in rare chances that they live a really long life?”

Athena scratched her head and decided to shrug it off.

“Oh well, guess he was a lucky one, too bad his luck ran out!”

As she went back to the fork, this time she took the bright path and went out of the enclosed area. She found herself at the side of a cliff, there were many clouds down below as there were a few above, so she knew she must not have been too high, but still fairly high. As she turned to her left and followed the path up, she was lead to a large flat ledge with a bonfire on it.

“Ah, a nice bonfire. Now I can get some rest and heal up a bit.”

As she was about to sit she noticed a large, chapel like structure in the distance, with further observation, it seemed connected to the cliff she was attached to.

”I’ll be over there soon enough, maybe there someone can tell me where I am exactly?” she thought.

She sat down at the Bonfire and a bright energy poured around her, filling her vision, then it was gone.

“And now to check on my...”

She reached into her pocket and shuffled around in it a bit, she couldn’t seem to find what she was looking for, then a thought hit her.

“Did I grab my Estus Flask when I woke up...?”

She looked back down the path to where she had just been with sadness in her eyes.

“Great, now I have to kill those undead again... *sigh* might as well go now than never...”

Slowly she got up and walked back down to the crypt area, uncaringly slashing through the undead that were there a second time. She then grabbed her Estus Flask which had enough for about 3 Chugs in it, and Chugged it once to heal herself. She then went back to her bonfire and rested at it again. After the blinding energy was gone, she looked and her Estus was filled up again.

“Looks like this is gonna be a long adventure...” Athena said with an annoyed sort of tone to her voice.

Chapter 2: The Shrine

Athena, sitting at the bonfire, looked around for any phantoms to talk with, to no avail. She let out a big sigh and stood up.

“Seems quiet today... wish I had someone to talk to.”

She did a few stretches for her arms and back.

“Ah well, I bet I’ll see someone else soon! Now off to adventure!”

She started a very enthusiastic march towards more stone coffins stacked in piles. Slaying undead that she came across with ease as they seemed to be weak stragglers desperate for souls. She then came across a small ledge, the next one down having a raised up coffin and a titanite shard on top. Athena examined the coffin carefully.

“No way to climb it, guess I’m gonna have to jump for it!”

She took a few steps backward, then charged straight for the ledge. She jumped and landed with a roll on the coffin, grabbing her prize.

“Score! Now I just need to find a blacksmith to reinforce my weapon.”

Athena jumped down then looked over the ledge to the bottom, seeing an undead just standing there. She jumped down slicing the undead and killing it with one blow.

“Maybe you should watch your surroundings more!”

Athena laughed, as a moment later she was hit by a flaming arrow and knocked to the ground. As she got up she looked and saw an undead near a broken wall in front of her reloading a crossbow with another flaming arrow.

“Right... Karma’s a bitch...”

Athena jumped up and quickly rolled away from the next arrow as she killed the undead. Now she was infront of a large stone double door. It was heavy, but she got it to move and pushed the doors open wide. On the other side, she saw a circular space one side lined with a rocky wall, the other a cliff with brick floor slowly breaking off and falling. In the middle of the circle platform was a circle of candles around a very large man with a strange sword stabbed through his chest.

“Woah!” Athena thought “That sword could be worth a lot of souls!”

She quickly rushed over to the man and pulled the sword, with a bit of struggle, out of his chest. Athena took a closer inspection of the sword in her hands.

“Wait a sec... this is a coiled sword! The ones in all the bonfires! Why’d this man have one in his chest?”

“” Athena heard a deep voice, she looked up and noticed the body of the man start to move. His armour’d body clanking as he stood over Athena by twice her height. He grabbed a large pole arm that was on his back, yielding a massive “executioner type” blade on one end.

Athena was scared by this stranger, yet for some reason, she knew his name.

Udex Gundyr: Another Ashen one

Athena rolled to the side as the axe head slammed into the ground, cracking the brick. She went in for a few slashes with her blades, it didn’t seem to do too much to him, but it still seemed to do something. His armour shook with each of his swings, he was oddly fast for his size, but Athena was faster.

“All I have to do is chip away at his armour, and i’ll eventually get a clear shot at him.” Athena thought.

As Athena went in for another double slash, Gundyr’s armour went into a frenzy. His shoulder burst open and a loud high pitched scream could be heard. Athena covered her hears as she ran a safe distance away and saw Gundyr had changed. Most of his body was now covered by some sentient black ooze with a massive arm jutting forward, red eyes at it’s “head” area.

Athena smirked “guess i found the weak spot.”

She charged, dodging away from the slime’s attacks as they slammed the ground. As she sliced the black goop, she could hear the ooze screech in pain. It was slower than Gundyr seemed to be before, though it was seemingly a bit lop sided, making it easy to run circles around as she slashed and dodged the arm.

Finally, with one last slash to the head, the Goop monster seemed to poof into a black smoke, leaving Gundyr to fall to his knees, his armour turning to dust and blowing away with a quick breeze.

“Well that wasn’t too hard!” Athena exclaimed.

She pulled out the cooled sword again and gave it a long stare.

“Wherever you belong, it’s probably around here somewhere.”

Athena looked around and saw another large double door that was shut. She pushed it open and saw she was at the base of a hill with some strange chapel-like building at the top. She walked up the hill, passing by some more undead stragglers, and reached the open arch of the chapel entrance. As she walked in, she looked around, this place felt familiar somehow...

“Oh!” She yelled, “I’ve heard about this place! This is the Firelink shrine!”

She walked in further and found stairs on either side of her to go down and up, across from her were 5 large thrones. Above were some more walkways, down in the middle the floor was covered in what looked to be ashes, and a stone circle in the center.

“There’s your home little fella!” Athena said pulling out the coiled sword. She ran down to the circle and stuck the sword into the pile of ashes, the bonfire lit, feeling very warm for Athena.

As Athena took in the warm heat, she rested at the bonfire.
