The Church of Ariandel, across the rope bridge.

The Painted World[edit]

Once, long ago, when the mighty souls of Gods ruled over the kingdom of Lordran, a grand painting was created, and it hung in a beautiful cathedral. It depicted an old, rickety bridge that led up to a snowy peak, atop which sat a crumbling, decrepit, fortress-like structure. It's painter, Ariamis, created it as a home for the forelorn, where it housed devout followers of Velka, a crossbreed of dragon and human alike, and even an ancient dragon, one of the last of its kind. Now, after being restored to glory by Ariandel seemingly centuries later, it has been reduced to nothing but a single, crumbling scrap of canvas that is worth nothing compared to the magnum opus it once was. Now, within the freezing world, resides a selfish tyrant from the outside world, a species of crow-like humanoid abominations, groups of wanderers without homes, and the young, white-haired crossbreed that will one day paint the next world.

Based off of The Painted World of Ariandel from Dark Souls III.
