Dark Souls' director reveals the pendant's true purpose

Eurogamer- Upon beginning a new game in Dark Souls you're offered the chance to pick a starting "gift" to help you on your travels. These range from very useful, like a master key that can unlock any door, to forgettable, like 10 fire bombs. The most mysterious item was the pendant as its in-game description read, "Trinket. No effect, but fond memories comfort travelers."

Upon Dark Souls' release, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki said in a Famitsu interview that he'd pick the pendant or nothing. (Dark Souls, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

LOL

That's what happened with the little jewel-button in Diablo II. Blizzard put a button on the lobby menu (prior to entering a session) and people would click it. Blizzard kept quiet, and there were dozens of theories as to what it did (theories ranging from "it boosts your magic-find" to "it increases the number of drops")

Turns out, the jewel did nothing and Blizzard simply wanted to see how many people would click it.

OR...he could be using reverse-psychology on us, making it so that he is still hiding the secret effect of the pendant and thus keeping people from asking anymore questions about said pendant. Jeez my brain hurts

Yep this mystery isn't over yet and you have just shorted my brain out. One of us needs to begin the stalking process so we can get to the bottom of this.

Does the crow give you something for it? I thought it did?

I picked it with one of my characters, thinking, I'm going to find out what it does later its going to be something awesome. Ya guess not, master key it is.
