      I strongly belive that the Ringed City is Londor. Isn't that strange that every single cities across the Dark Souls's univers has a name except the Ringed City ? This sword is my only evidence but I like the idea.

        Will this drop if I kill the pilgrim when I'm supposed to marry Anri. I'm just curious. I'm also too lazy to playthough with a new character / go to next ng to find out but I don't want to risk usurpation ending either. If someone knows or is willing to find out, please do tell.

          Another meaning of "marriage" is having sex. Thats why maybe "stabbing" is involved in this to become the Dark Lord. That there is a ring worked in your "sword" is no coincedent too I think. It's the wedding ring. Another interesting thing is that Anri can be seen in the Dark Lord ending so she/he isn't dead. I think in a very twisting Dark Souls-ish way this is indeed as close as it's gets of what a marriage will look like in this universe.

            While it does resemble an archstone sword, i also see a slight similarity between this sword and the Key to the Seal in New Londo. Which makes sense, if Londor is the area we think it is.

              • Why? Why? Why?21 Apr 2016 01:18  

                So to marry, you have to shove a sword up her face? Makes sense. Because every secret, almost every creature and let's not forget the engines way of handling physics makes no sense, so if marriage is shoving a sword up your bride's face it would definitely make sense in a nonsensical kind of way. By the way, the Crystal Sage boss somewhere in the ruins of a decrepit forest holds a 'small doll' which is the key to the city which you'll find later in the game you can't proceed without it. Why does this boss hold a small doll? Why is there a barrier blocking my way to the city? Why the hell does this doll allow me passage? Why are important bosses, items and areas hidden away behind walls that are nearly imperceivable? Why are barred doors locked with a bar from the inside? Why does missing a potential NPC that could become a vendor for you mean you won't be able to get that NPC after a certain point in the game? Why do some NPCs know which way you dodge so they hit you anyway even if you dodge? Why are most NPCs ridiculously large and blocking your camera view from all angles while you audibly get rekt and there's nothing you can do about it? Why do some choices affect you in a bad way while you couldn't have known beforehand? No hints, so it's not a puzzle to solve; It's a guessing game which means no intelligence required.<br/><br/>Dark Souls team certainly don't lack for programming skills, neither do they lack in world/item designing skills in general, but when it comes to creativity in bending logic with fantasy they fail at making a great game.

                  Kind of strange for romance to be involved with a souls game to this degree, especially for the darkest ending lorewise to require it to happen.

                    This is used to get the usurpation ending, you get through progressing yuria and anri's questline and is given in the darkmoon tomb area in anor londo <br/>
