Silver Pendant
Creates a field around the player that deflects Dark Magic for a few seconds. It is activated in a way similar to Force, though the player is able to move briefly whilst the pendant is still in effect. Found behind an illusory wall in Upper Oolacile Township, though unlike other illusory walls, it will require a light source of some sort to uncover. Skull Lantern, Cast Light spell and Sunlight Maggot are confirmed to work.


Carvings are a new item introduced in the Dark Souls Prepare To Die Edition.
They act as voice chat items. When you use them, your character throws a carving (much like throwing a prism stone) which explodes when hitting the ground and generates a sound depending on the carving you drop.
The sound generated is a voice saying the corresponding sound. The voice it's very deep and resembles the one of a giant (like Hawkeye Gough or the Giant Blacksmith).
