    On the subject of invasions, I have been invaded barely at all, despite generally being un-hollowed for the most part. What's everyone else's experience been like?

    Did you beat the belltower gargoyles yet? If so there's a chap in the belltower who can absolve your sins for a price. Andre should talk to you again after that.

    It *is* one of those games that's fun to watch others play :) it's certainly less stressful that way. Once I've got through the game I shall sit down and watch them all.
