The Old Hunters Guide

Yharnam is a towering, labyrinthine gothic city, home to both the Healing Church and the Plague. As no vidence of the existence of a ruling body is provided in the game, one may presume that the Healing Church controls the city. The Church focuses around healing by infusions of blood. From Hidetaka Miyazaki and FromSoftware – creators of the legendary action role-playing games Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls II – comes Bloodborne, an all-new, action-packed RPG brimming with unforgiving, unrelenting terror, developed exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Face your fears as you search for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire. Danger is an ever-present shadow in this horrific world, and you must discover its darkest secrets in order to survive.

One may presume that the Healing Church controls the city. The Church focuses around healing by infusions of blood. The hunters are a group of warriors who are dedicated to keeping their regions safe by hunting down beasts - or anything other than beasts if need be - that pose a threat.

“Bloodborne delivers an exhausting and exhilarating journey into the depths of madness.” - IGN

A Pale Blood Sky& The Nightmare

The Begining

The Red Moon is a nightmare. The servants of Amygdala are fully powered, the beasts are more ravenous, and the children of Amygdala are visible. In this nightmare, the world reveals the eldritch abominations it has been truly hiding.

As a result, everything gets worse, and the character sees the world as they would if they had amassed 40 insight. Unfortunately, by killing Rom, you usher in the Red Moon, which I believe to be the coming of Oedon.

I do not think Oedon is the Moon Presence, but he very well could be. Yharnam is a towering, labyrinthine gothic city.

Eventually, Old Yharnam was founded but it was brought low by an illness known as Ashen Blood, which was a worse form of slow/fast poison.

“If it moves, you can be sure that it's a beast. And, if it doesn't...best not to take chances. Fear the Old Blood.”

Along with the physical transformation comes a mental degradation: At first the victim assumes all people they don't know are hostile and they'll attack on sight.
