White Knight Challenge #2 Afro mode

After the great success of the first White Knight challenge we’re continuing the momentum and doing another exactly 1 month later. On March 2nd we will be doing the Afro mode challenge, again in Dark Souls and using Twitch.tv as the hosting medium.

Remember how fun the grass system was in Demon’s souls and how dying felt horrible because you just wasted all your healing items? Well now its time to apply it to Dark Souls! The second White Knight Challenge is upon us and this time we’re going in flaskless.

Rule #1 : No Estus flask.

You can either glitch to avoid it  or  just unequip it. Use Humanity to heal instead.

Rule #2 : You must be human.

We want to include viewers and being invaded is part of that. If you’re having a bad time with abusive invaders you can of course go hollow to skip that area. When you can no longer go human its restart time. Remember you can always send your invaders a message and ask for a donation!

Rule #3 : No Black knight weapons.

We’re White knights, why would we want black ones?

Rule #4 : Healing miracles are not for everyone

This is a flexible rule, you know if you’re good enough to need healing miracles to get by or not. If you are, prove it and don’t use them. If you’re not, you can have 1 healing miracle of any kind. That is 1 healing spell in 1 attunement slot, no stacking them to get more charges.

You need 12 Faith to use Heal. That is at most 4 points from any starting class, so don’t let it restrict your builds.Magic is allowed this time as well.

Rule #5 : 10 dollar rule

A donation of 10 dollars is enough to set a challenge for a streamer. If that challenge is singing show tunes as you moonwalk your way through Sen’s fortress or using a set weapon. Do your best to meet it. If you can’t, then do so next run. For example if you’re pure DEX and have 8 STR, someone asking you to use a weapon needing 40 STR just isn’t possible, but next run build a STR character.

Rule #6 : Summoning viewers is allowed!

If someone in chat puts down a summon sign and tells you who they are in chat you can summon them to help you. I would ask they stick to the rules as closely as they can and not bring a Stone dad with +5 lightning spear and Grass Crest Shield. Support summons are cool, having someone else finish the game for the streamer is boring. Try not to summon the same person too much. If you have summoned someone a couple of times and they want to be summoned again and you can see their soul sign they can use rule #5 to get summoned in that area again until you beat the boss.

Remember Dark Souls is really crappy at matching people up, if you want to be summoned make sure the summoner can find your soul sign first. We can’t promise if you donate you will get summoned we will try our best to make it work. I don’t want any one feeling ripped off by this, so I’m putting the warning here.

Rule #7 : All areas must be beaten

No skipping them via glitches or shortcuts.

Extreme challenge.

If you’re a top tier Dark Souls player you can probably do the above challenge a couple of times in 1 day, so here is a special challenge if you think you’re good enough.

Replace Rule #1 with the following : No weapons or armour.

No weapons, no talismans, no pyromancy, no miracles. Your equip slots must be completely empty. Use items to deal damage. You are allowed to heal on this challenge and the $10 rule still apply, so if you get stuck you need to beg for donations to get you out of it.

Rule #6 is reversed. You’re not allowed to summon unless donator requests it.

Desperation rule 

If you have tried everything to beat a boss and you are on 1 humanity left. for your last life you can use a broken sword, but only for the boss and only when you have used up every usable item that can hurt the boss

 

How do I take part?

If you want to take part just add “[WKC] Charity” to the start of your stream title and send an e-mail to DSWhiteknightchallenge@Gmail.com so we can add you to the website. Everyone is welcome to take part, just remember to include a link to the website and the donation link.

F.A.Q.

 

If I have humanity on my corpse can I go get it hollow?

Yes, you can go collect humanity off your corpse, but you must unhollow on the bonfire you respawned at.

 

On the Extreme challenge can people drop me items?

If you get to a hard lock where it is completely impossible to proceed then you can ask a viewer to drop you some souls, items or whatever. Use it as a last resort not an easy mode.

DSWKC rules

Dark Souls : White knight challenge

CHALLENGE IS DONE! WE WON!

On February 2nd Dark souls players will unite to raise money for Refuge, a UK charity who support women suffering from domestic abuse. Lately gamers have been given a bad rep by people looking to talk bad about male gamers and I want to show the world how wrong they are by doing some real good instead of trying to become famous for being sexist. The event will start at roughly Noon on the 2nd and run until at least Noon on the 3rd, you won’t need to stream 24 hours straight, just make sure we have at least 1 person streaming the entire time. Skyping each other and talking crap is encouraged. I will set up a main channel which will be the main challenge and should always have a dude streaming on it, but using your own channels while not on the main is fine. If we can cover the entire Dark Souls Twitch TV page in the WKC tag we will be doing well.

There is a banner included , its ugly but gives the URL and the challenge name. You can include it on your stream or you can put it under the stream. Make sure you provide an easy donation link.

Challenge rules.

You have 1 life. Once you die it is game over.
You may use rings of sacrifice to negate the Seathe death. This allows you to get through Duke’s archive. If you die you must delete your character and can start fresh. The objective isn’t to finish the game, but to entertain and raise awareness, dying isn’t failure if its entertaining.

There are 3 Rings of sacrifice you can find, you are not allowed to purchase them from Oswald

Found on the way from Firelink Shrine to Undead Burg on a corpse in plain view on the lower level of the aqueduct..
Found on the ledge above the well, in the central courtyard of Painted World of Ariamis.
Trade one Humanity with Snuggly to receive one Ring of Sacrifice.

No area skipping.
You cannot use the Duke’s Archive shortcut or skip an area. You must complete every area in full. Painted world and Ash Lake must both be finished.

All Bosses must be killed.
Every boss including both Hydras. Mini bosses like Momma Rat should also be killed. You can quit and relog in to make items spawn, but can’t use this trick to beat Bed of Chaos.

Weapon restrictions.
Only weapons on the normal upgrade path (1-15), Raw, Magic, Enchanted, Divine, Occult, Crystal, Demon Titanite and Dragon scale may be used. Elemental weapons are banned as is the Gravelord sword from the covenant. Everything else is free game, try to use something unique if you think you can handle it. I would encourage using non-Heavy armours as well, be cool not twinked.

Bows are fine but don’t abuse them. Running away from bosses and twanging them to death isn’t cool.

No Magic.
No Magic, Pyromancy or Miracles are allowed. The only exception is Cast light for use only in Tomb of the giants and opening secrets in the DLC. Weapons that scale off INT or Faith are fine, its just actually casting spells or enchanting weapons is banned. You can still use resins.

Human form only.
You must be in human form and connected to the Internet while streaming. People will be trying to invade you or Gravelord you. This is part of the fun and builds the excitement. You are not allowed to summon any one, you must fight solo.

If we have a problem with cheaters on the PC version we may update this rule as follows : Hollow is allowed up until your last death area, then you must go human from there. If cheating continues to be a problem staying hollow for that area may also be an option..

No grinding.
Once you pick where you are going and set off you should not return to the bonfire unless there is no chance of you succeeding. Some times you just get unlucky and need to redo, this is fine, farming of any kind is not. Farming is boring to watch and any one can grind souls and out tank everything. This doesn’t mean you can’t go to an area like the Undead Asylum to pick up the Rusty ring and then coming back later to fight the Stray Demon when you’re stronger.

Covenants are fine.
If you want to join a Covenant you can. Getting access to Shiva for example is fine.

$10 rule.
If some one donates 10 dollars and leaves a comment in the following format, you must follow through with the request if possible.

[Streamer name] Kills/Saves [Any non-blacksmith NPC name].

For 10 bucks you will kill any single non-blacksmith NPC. This is another way to raise money and involve the chat in the game themselves. The opposite is also true and if its still possible you need to follow their story line to give them the best ending. If you die before doing so, you must continue to try in any future runs until you manage it.

$25 rule.
For 25 dollars a donater can decide what your next character build will be. For example a Maneater Mildred run would force you to wear a sack and use a meatcleaver but nothing else.  A sponsor can request banned weapons and the use of magic, Pyromancy and Sorceries. Unless you beat a boss in the requested equipment the request is considered unfulfilled and you must do it again until you do or someone else pays for a challenge and you have given it a reasonable try.

The website for donating is http://www.justgiving.com/DSWhiteknightchallenge We’re hoping to raise £2,000 for the charity, this will go to help abused women and children find safe housing, mental health support and help some very unfortunate people get their lives back on track. Remember to encourage people to donate and thank them when they do. We’re here to show the world we give a fuck, so lets give a fuck about what we’re doing. Include the link in your channel description and put [White Knight Challenge] in your stream name on the day.

FAQ.

What is the donation link?

http://www.justgiving.com/DSWhiteknightchallenge

Why is it a female and child charity only?
I wasn’t able to add a second charity. There will be more charity marathons in the future giving to other charities including a male abuse one.

How long must I stream for?
Stream as much or as little as you want. There isn’t a formal schedule, its just an event for everyone to get involved in. If you have friends, invite them to join in as well.

Do we have a website yet?
Yes, you are on it.

What do I do if someone with an offensive name invades me?
Laugh it up. 4Chan is aware of the run, they will try and do this, turn it into a joke and amuse the viewers, don’t get offended by it.

I’m not part of the core group, can I still take part?
Yes you can! Add the banner and tag to your stream, tell people to give money and send an e-mail to DSWhiteknightchallenge@gmail.com to say you took part and you will get credit.

Can you homeward bone out of boss fights?

Yes you can. You can homeward bone any time.

Must you fight invaders?

No, you should focus on survival and if that means you run, then you run.
