Dark Souls: Masque of Vindication is an original story set to expand the mythos of the game. The story is written by Michael A. Stackpole.
In an underground tomb, a man who should have been dead awakens in the dark, gradually regaining his senses—
He has forgotten his past, including his name. Given the great pains taken to ensure his confinement, his revival may have been anticipated, but the remains of the grave robber that is his sole companion may give a clue as to his reawakening. When the corpse of the thief rises against him, a sorcerer’s instincts emerge, and he puts it down with a flash of light from his palm. With this gesture, the memories of the cadaver flicker through him, rekindling a sense of himself…
The desert night stretches out beyond the graveyard, and the starry sky tells the sorcerer that a long time has passed since his death. Naming himself Ferranos after the meaningless word graven outside his tomb and armed with a dagger of a failed grave robber, he embarks on an epic adventure guided by fate.
