The Bloodborne Dictionary

   0

With the possibility of my PS+ not getting renewed next year, I thought it was high time to write down the Bloodborne message dictionary. It´s a fun representation of the game as a whole and deserves to be preserved.

The game uses a few formats for messages, with this being the biggest one:

Template->Words->Conjunction->Template->Words->Gesture

You can also use shorter forms as well. Such as ones where you don't use a gesture or just have one template or just a word. Compared to the Demon's Souls dictionary, this is pretty concise. I'll write some messages of my own and I implore all of you to try as well. It's fun!

fear your blindness
the sky and the cosmos are one
let us cleanse these foul streets
you're in the know, right?
Oh, I can't wait... hee hee...
take a step forward
turn back
those with faith will be spared
don't be fooled

behind you
don't you dare look at me!
sincerest thanks
a hunter is never alone
please, carry on in my stead
run!
don't give up

About Kerrik52one of us since 3:12 AM on 02.28.2016

Greetings, one and all. I'm known as Kerrik52 around these parts and I think I'm pretty swell, for a Swedish dude.

I love all games, except the bad ones. I play games when possible, thinking I'll eventually break into heaven. I'm currently studying computer science.

I have written some blogs here exploring old games by From Software with more to come later. Not to mention my salty bitch series on the Souls-games.

I also have a little Youtube channel bearing my name that mostly contains videos related to my blogs.

I some games I love are:

Dark Souls
God Hand
Resident Evil 4
Tales of Eternia
Kingdom Hearts
Jak & Daxter
King's Field
Devil May Cry
Legacy of Kain
Shadow Hearts
Spyro
Ys
Shin Megami Tensei
Resistance
Patapon
Legend of Heroes
Yakuza
Locoroco
Ape Escape

I have a very low standard for movies, but I have some favorites. These include:

Coraline
Tintin
The Secret Life of Walter Witty
Pooh's Grand Adventure
Scott Pilgrim VS the World

The last TV shows I watched were House, Mythbusters and Fringe.

Anime on the other hand, is something I watch often. I like:

Symphogear
Jojo
Gonna Be the Twintail
Nichijou
WIXOSS
Black Rock Shooter
Nobunagun
Airmaster
Fist of the Northstar

I don't read very much anymore, but I like Asimov and Lovecraft.

Music-wise I'm an apostle of Dio and the German power metal scene. Other favorites include:

Gamma Ray
Iron Savior
Freedom Call
Dreamtale
Axel Rudi Pell
Edguy
Avantasia

Go ahead and share a piece of your world with me and I'll pay back in kind. Don't be deterred if I answer you in a wall of text though. I despise unfulfilling writing and will do all it takes to make my points.
