======== GAMEPLAY ========

+=--+ Terms +--=+
Enchantment
In Lordran, enchantments are temporary buffs applied to either yourself or your weapon.  The most common enchantments come from various resins found throughout the world.  Permanent enchantments can be applied through specific upgrade paths.  Additional temporary enchantments can be obtained from some spells.

Miracle Resonance
Miracle Resonance is a spot in the world where someone just recently used a miracle.  Marked by a white circle, miracles cast near this get a synergy effect and are cast as a stronger version of the miracle.

Phantom
Phantoms are other players and sometimes NPCs.  Different phantoms exist to perform different deeds.  White and Gold phantoms exist to help aid you in fighting through all the different areas of Lordran.  Their first objective is to ensure their summoner remains safe of their journey.  Their second objective is to aid in the defeat of the area boss.  Accomplishing this rewards the phantom with Humanity.  Red and Blue phantoms on the other hand, exist to destroy the host.  Red phantoms can be one of three things.  A Darkwraith, a cracked red eye orb invader, or invited combatants.  A Red Soapstone is required to be invited into other worlds for combat.  Most early on invaders are just people who are using Cracked Red Eye Orbs.  Blue phantoms are Spirits of Vengeance who hunt for Dark Sun Gwyndolin.  They invade worlds of sinners.

Sin
Sin is an invisible statistic that increases when you do evil actions, such as killing friendly NPCs.  Dialogue decisions do not affect sin.  Sin is used for ranking in the Book of the Guilty.  Members of the covenant Blades of the Darkmoon can only invade players with sin.  Sin can be absolved through Oswald of Carim, for a price of your soul level multiplied by 500.  Absolving your sins will reset any npcs made hostile back to friendly.

Sunbro
Anyone in the Warriors of Sunlight covenant.  AKA the best covenant.  Why?  Because LIGHTNING SPEARS!

+=--+ Stats +--=+
When you have enough souls to level up, you put a point into one of eight stats. Each one is different and provides specific bonuses.




+=--+ Covenants +--=+
Covenants are factions joinable through specific NPCs found throughout the world.  Every covenant has unique weapons/magic accessible only by joining.  Being in the same covenant aids in finding players for jolly cooperation.  There are nine covenants, each representing the moral compass grid (lawful, chaotic, good, evil, and neutral).  It costs nothing to join a covenant, however joining one while still in another will invoke sin onto your character, making you a target for the Darkmoon Blades.  Some covenants have a rank system where you do specific objectives to raise your ranking in the covenant up to three.  Only a few have actual benefits to this.  Oswald of Carim, the priests in the Parish belltower, offers a way to abandon covenants without any penalty or cost, so its always recommended to visit him before joining another covenant.  Abilities only usable while in certain covenants are still locked out.

Way of the White - Lawful Good
Join Location: Petrus, the cleric in Firelink Shrine.  After talking to him for awhile, he'll offer you membership.  Later a priestess will offer membership if you finish her sidequest successfully.

Function: The Way of the White primarily exists to aid other players.  Its been shown that miracle resonances appear far more frequently for WotW members.

Effects: The system for invasions is slightly covenant based, and for members of the Way of the White, this is a good thing.  The WotW is on the bottom of the preference list, meaning chances of invasion from other players is greatly reduced while in this covenant.

Jolly Cooperation: The WotW appears to have a link to Sunbros and the Princess' Guard covenants, making coop sessions more likely between the groups.

Ranks: There are none.

Betrayal Penalty: None, just sin.

Princess's Guard - Neutral Good
Join Location:
Spoiler:
Gwynevere, after the Ornstein and Smough fight in Anor Londo.
 You'll be able to join after taking the Lordvessel.

Function: The Princess's Guard has the ability to cause Miracle Resonance more frequently.  The Guards are often sought after for their access to the only party healing miracles in the game.

Membership Bonuses: Upon joining, you're given the Ring of the Sun Princess, which boosts Miracle Synergy.  Once found, you're able to use the miracles Bountiful Sunlight and Soothing Sunlight.

Jolly Cooperation: The Princess's Guards are more likely to unite with other Guards, along with Sunbros and the Way of the White.

Ranking: None.

Betrayal: Killing Gwynevere will evict you from the covenant.  Unable to use Soothing Sunlight or Bountiful Sunlight.  Killing Gwynevere causes permanent hostility from the Darkmoon Blades.

Blades of the Darkmoon - Chaotic Good
Join Location: The Tomb of Gwyn, accessed by setting the rotating staircase to the lowest spot.  Requires the Darkmoon Seance Ring from a hidden area in the Catacombs.  Equiping the ring will cause the statue of Gwyn to disappear and reveal stairs to a fog gate.  DO NOT ENTER THE FOG GATE.  A small square in front of the gate will allow you to kneel and enter the covenant.

Function: The Blades of the Darkmoon exist to hunt those who have sinned.  Temporary sin can be obtained by attacking/killing friendly npcs or breaking covenant oaths.  This kind of sin can be absolved by visiting Oswald of Carim.  Permanent sin, aka Indictment, is acquired by invading and killing other players.  If the victim possesses an Indictment, it can be used to add permanent sin to their attacker.  Darkmoon Blades cannot be indicted if they're invading as a Spirit of Vengeance.

Membership Bonuses: Upon joining, you'll receive a Blue Eye Orb and the Blade of the Darkmoon ring. Blue Eye Orbs are used to invade worlds of sinners as a blue Spirit of Vengeance.  The Blade of the Darkmoon ring, when equiped, is used to summon you to Dark Anor Londo to hunt those who killed Gwynevere.

Ranking: In order to rank up, you're required to offer Souvenirs of Reprisal to Gywndolin in the Tomb of Gwyn.  Souvenirs are obtained through successful Darkmoon invasions.
Rank +1 | 10 SoR | Miracle: Darkmoon Blade and Darkmoon Talisman
Rank +2 | 30 SoR | Miracle: Darkmoon Blade power increase
Rank +3 | 80 SoR | Miracle: Darkmoon Blade power increase

Betrayal: Killing Gwynevere or crossing the fog gate in the Tomb of Gwyn will evict you from this covenant.  Eviction prevents you from using Miracle: Darkmoon Blade.

Warriors of Sunlight - Lawful Neutral
Join Location: The Altar of Sunlight, underneath the Hellkite Wyvern.  Requires 25 faith to join.  The requirement is lowered by 5 faith for every time you help defeat a boss as a white phantom.

Forest Hunters - True Neutral
Chaos Servant - Chaotic Neutral
Gravelord Servant - Lawful Evil
Path of the Dragon - Neutral Evil
Darkwraith - Chaotic Evil

Loot: 1 Humanity & Soul of Moonlight Butterfly
Attacks:

Especially if you're melee focused, since you'll only be able to attack when its perched. This is a primarily ranged fight, so choose your preferred ranged weapon, magic or bow, and fire away.

>Remnants of Gods:
Objective: Learn the secret of Anor Londo
Requirements: The Darkmoon Seance Ring from the Catacombs
In the Catacombs, after the second bonfire, you'll find a room with a noticeably broken wall.  Kick it down and drop down into the tomb.  Continue along and you'll find a coffin with the Darkmoon Seance Ring.
With the Darkmoon Seance Ring in hand, head off to Anor Londo.  Turn the spinning staircase down to its lowest level to access the Darkmoon Tomb.  After resting at the bonfire, equip the Seance Ring and the statue of Gwyn will disappear, revealing a path.
From here, you may join the Darkmoon Blade covenant or progress through the fog gate to fight Dark Sun Gwyndolin.
Rewards: Soul of Gwyndolin, Darkmoon Seance Ring, Darkmoon Covenant, Sunlight Blade Miracle, Brass Armor Set, Domhnall stocks Moonlight Set
>Those Left Behind:
Objective: Return to the Northern Undead Asylum.
Requirements: Access to the Parish elevator.
Once you're able to use the elevator, take a ride on it.  Along the way, take a step off early, onto the roof of the Firelink exit.  From here, walk onto the cliff and roll off onto one of the pillars below.  Run up the side and you'll find yourself in the partially destroyed tower above Firelink.  You can jump onto the roof above Petrus here to obtain a useful key for later.  If you do, just repeat what you did and climb back up the tower.  At the top you'll find a bird's nest.  Curl up into a ball and wait a bit and you'll find yourself on your way back to the Asylum.
Beware, time has passed since you left and new threats now patrol the grounds.  Take your time to explore the area, its recommended to take the path taken in the prologue.  You'll encounter a few black knights and an old friend while here.  Making your way back to your prison cell, you can find a peculiar doll waiting.  This is important for the quest: A Painted Perspective.  On the top floor is a locked door that requires the key from earlier to open, doing so you'll find the extremely useful Rusted Iron Ring.
Back in the boss room, walk into the center of the floor to encounter a stronger version of the Asylum Demon.
Before you leave, check out the ledges for a nest where you'll find confusing trader, Snuggly the Crow!
Rewards:  Crest Shield, Peculiar Doll, Rusted Iron Ring, Titanite Slab, Snuggly the Crow
>A Painted Perspective:
Objective: Treasure Galore
Requires: Peculiar Doll (See Those Left Behind
Note: You can't warp out through bonfire once you're in the Painted World.
Once you have the Peculiar Doll, turn the spinning staircase in Anor Londo until you can access the first floor of the Painting Hall.  The floor is populated by Painting Guardians, who shouldn't pose a threat.  When they're dispatched, simply examine the painting in the back.  One enjoyable experience later, you'll find yourself in the Painted World of Ariamis.  The only bonfire in the area is straight ahead.  The following area is pretty straight-forward until you reach the courtyard.  From the courtyard, you have the choice of checking out the annex, dead cliffs, or catacombs.  To progress in the area, you'll need to head into the catacombs and look for a crank.  This will open the door to the exit bridge.  This is an entire zone that is practically dedicated to aimless exploring.  When you're done, head across the bridge and through the fog gate to find Priscilla.  She'll ask you to leave via short bridge that will take you home.  If you choose to fight her, good luck.
Notable Rewards:  Soul of Priscilla, Occult Ember, Velka's Rapier

The unknown sealer is quite an enigma.  A sealer appears in the company of Lautrec, however it is unknown if this is the original, or perhaps an imposter.
