I am now convinced that Dark Souls is the console equivalent of Mao - where you're encouraged to make up your own rules and abilities and items and everyone else just plays along with it. "Put all your points into Proofreading, then look under the white rock and you should find a '65 Stratocaster there. This is great for a Lightning build. When you see a dragon, always circle it clockwise unless it's a blue dragon and you're not wearing a fedora. Oh yeah, get the fedora at the beginning. Make sure you become human when you set yourself on fire, but that's different from Humanity, which you get when your XP gains a level."
