Dark Souls OBD
Prepare to Die

Background Information

The second game in the Souls series
In the Age of Ancients,
The world was unformed, shrouded by fog
A land of grey crags, archtrees, and everlasting dragons

But then there was Fire
And with Fire came Disparity. Heat and cold, life and death, and of course.. Light and Dark.

Then, from the Dark, They came
And found the Souls of Lords within the flame.

Nito, the first of the dead
The Witch of Izalith, and her daughters of chaos
Gwyn, the Lord of Sunlight, and his faithful knights
And the furtive pygmy, so easily forgotten

With the Strength of Lords, they challenged the dragons.

Gwyn's mighty bolts peeled apart their stone scales
The witches weaved great firestorms
Nito unleashed a miasma of death and disease

And Seath the Scaleless betrayed his own, and the dragons were no more
Thus began the Age of Fire

But soon, the flames will fade, and only Dark will remain

Even now, there are only embers, and man sees not light, but only endless nights
And amongst the living are seen, carriers of the accursed Darksign.

Standing in the Battledome

Dark Souls overall doesn't stand out as a particularly strong universe overall. That's not to say it's weak though. Even the weakest of demons can generate enough energy to level a building through pure physical might where as the higher tiered characters sit around multi city block level. The Lords, through magic and physical might (you have the likes of Seath crushing the scales of Everlasting Dragons in his hands), the top tier of the verse can achieve small city level yields.

For the level of power they possess, their speed is kind of par, sitting around supersonic.

In terms of hax and other assorted abilities you're talking along the lines of soul stealing/absorption, elemental manipulation (of your generic 4 classic elements variety), flight & levitation, the ability to rapidly age matter through some form of aura miasma, immortality, poison manipulation, minor forms of healing and regeneration, and magic
