The fog rises around you as you inch across the courtyard and through the doors of the old keep. With your trusty longsword and your shield in tatters, you’ve managed to clear through the castle guard… or at least what used to be. What once were brave soldiers, fighting for King Allant’s good name, have lose their souls to some unknown force and become twisted, empty versions of themselves. Without warning, a blinding pain scorches across your senses as a hulking set of armor with blue burning eyes jumps out of the shadows and slashes through your chainmail. You somehow manage to stumble away from him and regain your balance just in time to roll away from his next devastating stroke. Taking advantage of his weighty swing, you find yourself behind him and bury your longsword through his back, extinguishing the blue eyes forever. Painfully, you reach into your pockets and find the last bit of crescent moon grass in your rations. The soothing grass makes you all but forget your narrow escape from death. You regain your composure and continue down the hall towards what appears to be a solid wall of fog. You are Boletaria’s last hope, and there better not be any more surprises on your path to greatness.
Good old Demon’s Souls! This is another game that I love the concept behind but couldn’t get too far. My husband played this game a lot and I enjoyed watching him the whole time. I tried playing once and didn’t make much progress at all (beat the phalanx and stopped). For those who don’t know, this was the game From Software released prior to Dark Souls. A lot of times I think Demon’s Souls is overshadowed by Dark Souls but they are both quality games. One of the coolest boss fights in Demon’s Souls would have to be the Old Monk fight. While playing in the last section of the Tower of Latria players could be summoned to play as the final boss for the zone. Of course the difficulty of this fight would vary from time to time depending on who was pulled into your world. I thought it was a very clever way to do a boss. Rather than have some random AI, why not pit the players against one another. Today I’m sure the AI boss kicks in because less people are playing the game but during its prime, it was pretty awesome.
Enough with the introduction, let’s dive into this very difficult recipe. I will tell you how to go crescent moon grass hunting in the real world. You can’t go on adventures without a few of these on hand.
Required Equipment: Hands
Servings: 1 Serving
– An open field with some weeds
– A stone of ephemeral eyes (optional)
You must begin your adventure by going outside; I know this might be difficult but trust me it will be worth it. Travel to a large open field that tends to not be overly well kept. It will make it much easier to locate several weeds.
Once you have found a weed, prepare to pull it from the ground. Place you index finger and thumb at the base of the weed. Pull with ALL your strength, if you are unable to retrieve the weed, use a stone of ephemeral eyes (if stuck in spirit form) and ask a friend to help you pull it out. Now you have yourself a piece of delicious crescent moon grass! No need to flavor it, it is prefect as is!
Of course I do not recommend that you actually go outside eating weeds. Who knows what chemicals have been sprayed on them. Demon’s Souls is a game I wanted to show on the blog but it really doesn’t contain an edible food. When coming up with things I was excited that I would have a post on April Fool’s Day. I took the chance to give Demon’s Souls some love! Enjoy the day and be careful what you read.
