This happened to me while playing Dark Souls 2:
Okay, this has literally just happened to me a few minutes ago as I post this and you probably might not believe it, or maybe you will, stranger things have happened.
I had a run in with the fan made Covenant known as "The Very Good Invaders."
No, I'm not joking, this is apparently an actual thing.
I was just going through some areas and picking up some items in the Lost Bastille, when I'm about to bonfire out of there and level up, but I can't which is an early sign to an invader. I get ready for a fight as I see the message pop up and a red phantom appears at the other side of the stone bridge thing.
The red phantom gives me a wave and runs over to another area where shit just starts exploding because apparently my invader has some high level pyromancy on their side and I'm just starting up a new character so my guy is outmatched. Shit is just popping off and enemies are dying, I can see the flame of the explosions from around the corner like its some
kind of over the top slapstick cartoon. I'm just standing there wondering what the hell is going on.
The red phantom walks back over to me and gives me another wave and I wave back and the red phantom beckons me to fallow.
My first instinct tells me that, maybe this person just wants a fair fight and is clearing out any interruptions that might drop in, but nope, I keep expecting the invader to pull out a weapon, but they stick to just using pyromancy and don't even target me.
So we start going from area to area and clearing out all the enemies and my unexpected companion is healing me all the way whenever I take damage, I'm still weary of the person, but they never once attacked me. We go all the way to where the boss of the area is, but I've already killed those trio of spear wielding bastards and my unexpected companion takes off back to their game.
I'm just left sitting there wondering what happened. I'm about to call it a night after that when I get this message in my inbox from the very person who just invaded me:
"Let this message be a reminder of our assistance from the fan made covenant called, "The Very Good Invaders"
I read it and can't help but smile at it. I just had to write something back so I write back:
"Thanks for the unusual, but fun time my friendly invader."
Too which the "Very Good Invader" writes back:
"Lol XD, np its what we do."
The Souls fanbase is a very interesting fanbase. Very interesting indeed.
