So I joined the company of champions in a drunken fit. Well I finally figured out what it does. Looked up online and everyone says if I quit the covenant I can resume normal play, summoning, being summoned, etc.
However I talked to the cat and I quit the covenant and yet.... I still can't place my summon sign. WTF
I just watched the ep of Louis where Louis and Robin go to a comedians funeral to pay their respects. They're the only ones that show up. At the end, they both agree to go to the other's funeral if they die first.
