And an apology- I can't answer PMs right now. I'm really busy, and I've gotten far too many questions, requests, hate mails, etc. to possibly answer. Seriously. I've been able to respond to about 10%. I'm sorry. If I didn't have a day job, I'd love to answer every message... but I gotta support my family. I know you guys feel me on that.

If you've been around here for awhile, you know that I've had a good run of answering PMs and emails. But now... I spent 4 hours on a Saturday answering emails and did about 10%. If you math it out, the only way I can keep answering messages is to neglect my wife AND quit making new videos... not gonna happen! :O

Current plans: Lore continues, Demon's Souls when I have a chance to upload, a secret project in honor of a legend, maybe some retro stuff in early March, and a new Nippon Ichi game will pull me away from DkS in mid-March.


MAD PROPS to DemonSous and Tengumaru

They're helping to keep me straight by checking the JP wiki descriptions for things like the Sewer Chamber Key. Those guys are keeping your bro in-line like a couple of BOSSES!

Thanks again guys.

Bed of Chaos the most annoying boss?! Bullshit ENB! That title TOTALLY
belongs to the Four Cunts. Those assholes are the entire reason I stopped
playing DS and started on DS2.

Author Alexros Kalfanuc (4 days)
I think Laurentius was just talking about the Butcher at the beginning of
the area. She is revealed to be a female.

Author danielmhfu (5 days)
could the centipede be his arm because its tail looks like a arm the ring
is on the end and he looks like his right half got ripped out and salaman
could be undead because logan is also over 200 yrs old

Author BikouTenma (4 months)
Now see i thought ENB was white.

Author tyler tompson (24 days)
When he said he would be her supper he meant the butchers. They were
confirmed as female enemies. 

Author Jwall9634 (1 month)
I always thought he meant Quelaag or the fair lady when he said "her
supper" but that's most likely because I'm not too observant when it comes
to some things like noticing that the gaping dragon was a giant mouth... I
honestly did not know that until it started looking up lore and saw its art
and saw some videos on it

Author ChaosDaughter Quelaag (1 month)
I don't think that Salaman is Quelana's apprentice simply because I don't
think she'd readily give up the clothes of the daughters of chaos. It would
make much more sense that the pyromancer outside the bed of chaos's boss
fog door is another daughter of chaos. I truly wish there was a way to
completely heal the fair lady, because I know that we would get a lot of
lore out of it, and it would certainly make me feel a bit better about
killing Quelaag. I also want to know why we can't feed the fair lady white
moss to heal the toxin or purple moss to heal the poison that is plaguing
her body.

What were you supposed to do ? Let her kill you ? Man , she began the fight
and she lost , it's as simple as that . Now the only thing you have in debt
is to fulfil her task of gathering humanities for Quelaan and your account
is clear.

Author Lewis Grey (1 month)
From the DarkSouls Wikia:

Removed Content:

Quelaag had dialogue removed from the final game:

"Go back. Forbidden be, these parts. The realm of the creatures of chaos.
They accept their banished fate. Go back. Lest the flames devour all, and
the children of chaos feed upon your charred ashes. Those who defy the
pact... Those who trespass Quelaag's domain... May you feel the depth of
our wrath! Ahh, a precious new sacrifice! Forbidden be, these parts. The
realm of the creatures of chaos. Go on, go on ahead... Welcome, bringer of
meat. The children of chaos are hungry; give yourself to Quelaag's flame!"

This indicates that Quelaag had a matriarchal status within the Chaos
Servant Covenant, along with or instead of her sister.

Author Ghostgaming (1 month)
ENB when the first Pyromancer (probably spelled that wrong) is talking
about "being "her" supper" her talking about one of the two masked butchers
in the sewers near him. You even confirmed that the burgers were in fact
girls under the sack they wear, so yeah and it could also be man eater
Mildred but I personally don't think so considering his location when you
save him. Just thought u might want to know.

I feel less bad for killing the fair lady now? i think... i don't know.

Author BadMadChicken (8 months)
I think the sister have some sort of deal. TFL bares ofspring, but become
imobile and need someone to bring her energy, souls.. humanity. However, i
think Queelag take them for herself. keeping her youth. im not sure why i
think this.
I think the pyromancer was going to be eaten by Queelag or TFL
Is it ever stated that pyromancy was born after the demons were bourn? in
Darksouls there is a difrence between chaos flames and pyro flames. chos
seems to scale with humanity.
i used to belive the pyromancy came from the witch. she used fire storms to
kill the dragons. and demons were bourn when a experiment to make a new
flame went wrong.

Author Thomas Barkley (4 months)
See, given that the description in the Lord Soul gained by killing the Bed
Choas nevr specifically says the WItch of Izalith was absorbed, i don't
think that she's in there. The strongest evidence for this is that one of
the bosses in Dark Souls II is the "Lost Sinner", who committed the
ultimate sin; trying to relight the first flame. For this, the Lost Sinner
punishes "itself", and you get a lord soul for killing it. My hypothesis,
is that after the Bed of Chaos was killed and her lord soul was added to
the Lord Vessel, I think that after you became the Lord of Fire/Dark, that
she reclaimed her Lord Souls and tortured herself in Drangleic. I don;t
know it any of the Witch of Izalith's daughters are in the Bed of Chaos,
but that's up to speculation.

there are 7 chaos sisters

There is :
0 : The witch - mother (the bug in the bed of chaos)
1-2 : 2 unnamed sister - that became the glowing orbs that protect (but
also seem to limit) the bed of chaos
3-4 : Quelaag and the fair lady - the spider demons

and then the three that weren't morphed by the bed

5 : The one that stayed with their brother but died - the corpse next to
6 : The one that decided to protect the bed of chaos (possibly wanted to
try to save her mother and sisters, or might have been getting controlled
by the bed)
You fight her just outside the bed of chaos, on the same place Kirk invades
for the last time.
7 : The one that escaped - Quelana

then 8 : their brother, who dropped his ring when they were fleeing from
the bed of chaos, this caused him to start discharging lava in a ceaseless
flow again.
And the bed transformed the ring into the centipede demon.

you know that the pyromancer that you fight right before the bed of chaos
is actually quelana herself. she has gone hollow, and she isnt in
blighttown after you kill her in the demon ruins. Also she drops the chaos
pyromancy, which is actually says is a spell that quelana made

Author USAFmazda (6 months)
i dont think u still read these but if im correct i think the mother is the
one out side the bed of chaos. and the brother "discharge" is watching one
of his sisters who he doesnt know is dead . thus why he goes ape shit when
bother it. i dont remember where i saw it or what item it was one but just
thought id give u my 2 cents. keep the videos up they are awesome

Author Dustin Kogl (6 months)
Is it possible that Salamon is the Demon firesage?? Perhaps since he was
Quelana's apprentice he was with the sisters and mother of chaos when she
tried to duplicate the lordsoul, or perhaps he is the Cealess discharge? Is
it possible all the sisters and mother, possibly Salamon all gave effort
into duplicating it? I don't know why Quelana wasn't turned into a demon
and how she escaped. Just kinda my theory behind this, this is my favorite
area in the game and its pretty damn interesting.

The pyromancer you face before the bed of chaos is the eldest daughter. If
you continue past where you kill her and defeat the chaos eater, you find
the chaos fire whip pyromancy. It's item description says that it was
wielded by the eldest daughter, and the pyromancer you fight uses this

Author Kingofdoomgloom (7 months)
Hah funny to hear that bit of dialogue, " If you hadn't helped me I would
be her supper." Meaning big manly butcher.

Author t1oxETy (7 months)
i love this boss. you have this giant uncontrollable disaster right in
front of you, that was created essentially to prolong the life of a fire
(almost like a philosopher stone to humans). and as your cutting through
the vines you see this fragile creature that this chaos essentially growing
from and seems to be feeding from its life. its the idea that such chaos
can come from something so fragile. and the fact that you keep dieing but
it stays exactly how you left it, never resetting like the other
bosses.even the area around this boss tells so much about how fragile chaos
can be. theres so much that can be learned from the lost izalith that i
think is being under estimated.

Author Project Echo (7 months)
There is cut dialog for Quelaag telling the player to turn back and leave.
You can look it up.

Author TheCarebox (7 months)
isn't it the centipede demon who drops the orange charred ring?

Author Timothée Dubreucq (7 months)
The corpse protected by Ceaseless Discharge probably isn't themother of
Pyromancy, since in the intro, she appears to be much taller than a normal
human being. So I'd say it's one of the 7 sisters. I guess. Maybe ? As you
say, speculations and all that ;)

Author nick andhiscamera (7 months)
The fair lady has the saddest stories of all time. I worked my butt off to
get the witchs ring so I could hear her speak only to have my heart broken
by what she says when I put it on. so yes ENB I DO feel like a dick.

Author zephos33 HD (8 months)
all of the daughters are accounted for. the first two are the fail lady and
quelaag, then comes quelana, then the pyromancer who attacks you in lost
izaleth then the corpse ceacless discharge is guarding. the last two you
ask? theyre the two orange spheres around the bed of chaos and the witch
herself was deformed into the bed. shes the weird thing you have to kill to
beat the Bed of chaos

Author Gamer Deal (8 months)
I think that pyromancer before bed of chaos is Quelana of Izalith, because
i dont upgrade my pyrom. flame up to 10 and Quelana has not spawn in Blight
town, so i kill that pyromancer and after that i upgrade pyrom. flame up to
15 and she was not there.

Author weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee360 (8 months)
I believe the pyromancy user next to kirk is one of the sisters of chaos,
but I always found it more interesting to imagine that it was Salaman who
tried to kill the witch of Izalith to help ease the suffering of his
teacher, but fell short just before het got there and was consumed by the
fire. A pyromancy flame comes from the users own soul, so I always thought
he burned up his entire soul trying to reach the Bed of Chaos.

Just so you know, the 'GREAT SWAMP' and the swamp of blighttown are not the
same place.
The great swamp is not in Lordran or atleats not in the parts you find.
However it could be he is still the reaosn why blighttown is in it's
current state

Author Maksimas Irician (9 months)
I have just found out, that one can potentialy kill ALL tyhe members of the
Witch of Izaliths family(if the choose to kill TFL and Quelana). There are
5 daughters, 1 son and then the Witch of Izalith. Quelaag, TFL and Qealana
are the obvious one, so i won't mention them. Ceaseless is the son, and the
corpse he is guarding is his sisters corpse, for what reason, i dunno,
maybe that specific sister loved him the most, or vice versa, or she was
the one to suggested to give him the Orange Charred ring. Now, the
pyromancer enemy before Bed of Chaos fog door is probably the 5th daughter,
defending what's of her mother, or Izalith, or both, or maybe she's just
hollow or insane. And the Bed of Chaos is obviously the Witch of
Izalith(the thing you hit to kill the Bed of Chaos slightly resembles a
human, excepth more intertwined(as in it's a part of it) with the boss.
Now, people say there are a 6th and 7th daughter, well those are probably
also a part of the Bed of Chaos(the things in the orbs specifically). I am
80% sure 'bout this. Maybe i'm wrong, so please correct me.

Author SpadesHeart (9 months)
So I had a question regarding Bed of Chaos and since people seem to be
actively talking about her here, thought I might ask. Has anybody from From
Software said anything about the boss being in some way Evangelion
inspired? The noise it makes when you destroy the orbs is highly
reminiscent of some of the Angel sound effects from EVA, not to mention the
bindings seem to look a lot like Lances of Longinus. I realize it might be
kind of a stretch, but it certainly would be an interesting nod.

Author CynicalPrime (9 months)
I HAD NOT piromancy flame, and Quelana apears arter killing Quelaag

Author Marco Dejough (9 months)
To reply to ArkiosRokuyon (still getting used to the new layout), I
probably should have said that she was the only one OTHER than Quelana to
speak, and both Quelaan and Quelana are listed in the credits with voice
actresses. I forgot to clarify this in my original comment, and apologize
for any confusion.
